  1. Ordering Menu Items

    Possibility to have choice to ordering automaticly Menu Items in alphabetic order (ascending or descending) but for the frontend.

    We can do it in backend. But it will be very good to be abble to decide (in backend of course) to decide how they are order in the front.

    Don't have to drag and drop every time.

    Don't have to determine "manually" if Amdlfkjmlkjsfq must be before or after Amqlsdkjfqmlj.
    If I have decide to order them in alphabetic order, I don't need to read and drag and drop : they are automaticly in my alphabetic order (in backend and…

    • Articles only read per person

      One article post can only be read by access level but per article. So, John may not be able to read what Sue can as registered and logged on.

      • Build a core system which is fast and dyanimic. Waiting to see Joomla fast as WordPress.

        Joomla, although it is now 1.6 in version, is still heavy to process the file system. I want to see Joomla with lighter file procession system like in WordPress where creation, deletion and administration of contents, categories or related core services must be fast as in WordPRess.

          • Have multiple select language options for sharing articles in a multilingual site.

            It would be very helpfull to allow multiple select language next to the "all" option.

            This will allow me to share an article in swedish with norwegian and danish front end but not have it shared with english front end.

            • Fix the support ticket process

              Fix the detail body information of the support ticket so that clicking off that section then clicking back on that section does not delete everything already typed?

                  debate extensions are not good, thus need a lot of changes.

                  • Filter by menu item in the module manager

                    I like the idea of ​​having a way to see which modules are assigned to a particular menu item. But going item by item (you have to open one by one) is very frustrating . To have a filter in the Module Manager which allows filtering by menu item and have all modules in a list without opening each menu item individually, it would be crazy.

                            • Full Text for Leading Articles (despite "read more")

                              I'd like to see the option to allow leading articles to display full text, despite them having "read more". Ideally the "read more" link (if shown otherwise) would be hidden. This way, the blog's leading articles are fully available immediately, and then the intro articles would remain shorter with "read more" links.

                              This Joomla! forum thread (http://forum.joomla.org/viewtopic.php?p=2718693) has some suggested code for creating a template override. Perhaps this code can be used to add the feature, along with code for an on/off switch in the back-end.

                              • To let the admin(back end) be continuously logged and can be left open for weeks to one computer

                                There is safety when the admin-back end can logged you out automatically so that when you left your computer the people around you won't be able to manipulate your admin(bak end). The problem with this hackers develop new ways everyday to breach the admin and if you are logged out automatically to your admin hackers who found a way to breach the admin can logged to your admin as the real owner. With this feature the owner of the website that has a secure environment and trusted people around him/her would be safe from hackers because you are continuously logged…

                                  • Block certain names from being registered

                                    There should be something built into Joomla so when a user tries to register a name you don't want them registering, such as curse words, it will already be blocked, instead of having to register each name yourself.

                                      • Admin interface more like a cpanel look. - and have the features of it to

                                        The admin interface is okay, but if you more like cpanel, and had access to your file manager and sub domains and other useful CP features - such as MYPHPadmin.

                                        Then Joomla would be very useful.
