          • 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.

                  • Core file change notifications

                    System Admins receive email notifications if Joomla core files (or files in specified directories) currently running on your production server environment have been changed/modified/deleted.

                    • 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.

                          • Modify the module, "who is online"

                            Modify the module, "who is online"
                            I think it would be nice if the module showing user names are not in cursive, and a whole string of hyphens.
                            And in the beginning would show those who are online, and the bottom 1 or 2 blank lines would show the names of those who visited the site today, plus the number of guests includes robots.

                                  • Add icon for trashed menu items

                                    Currently, to someone who has never used Joomla, the whole menu item and trashed items can be a bit confusing. The concept is good, especially as a fail safe to maybe untrash a menu item instead of creating a new one. Here are actually 2 things I think should be thought about in order to make the trash section more useful to everyone.

                                    1.) if someone currently tries to create a menu item with the same alias as a trashed one, it just says something like "can not create menu item, item under same root folder already has alias". This…

                                    • Make Module Manager "Pages" field more useful if "Selected Only" was chosen

                                      If module enabled only for selected menu items, the "Selected Only" can be expanded to the start of menu items list like [Home, Features, ....], so the squared brackets (or other symbol) automatically points to this variation while the actual menu names helps guessing without activating the item

                                      • database orm

                                        it would save lot of time if joomla suports orm
                                        rather than JTable constructs

                                          search fiel in the backend to find a specific option quickly -- more quickly than clicking through various menus
