  1. Better if this idea be part of joomla. "Student/Members Area that they can access their grades"

    It's like this,

    A school site that student/members will be logged in and they can monitor their grades. A student/Member page...

    • Javascripts at the bottom of the body tag

      Javascripts should be loaded just before the body tag closes, for improvements on speed

      • Change /administrator to /admin

        Instead of having to type /administrator after every domain to get to the backend, why not just type /admin. It's a simple thing but annoying if you're working on a ton of sites and have to keep typing /administrator because it's easy to screw that word up.

          • Category blog show X number in each subcategory

            As implemented in 1.5, and I think 1.6, if the first category has say 10 articles, but the menu link is defined with 2 leading and 4 intro articles, nothing from the second category is displayed on the first page, which could be confusing for a visitor.

            This becomes a bit more difficult in 1.6, but still possible. So, let me explain my vision for 1.5 first.

            A Section Blog in 1.5 would show the section description (optionally).

            Then each category would be processed, in turn, to display:
            - title (with link) (optionally)
            - category description (optionally)
            - X number…

            • Fix errors by rewriting configuratrion.php.

              If I put the disabled site, in the Administrator, gives an error about not being able to write the configuration.php file. Should be able to change permissions, rewrite and restore the permissions, or at least explain that enable permissions and restore them after rewriting.

                  • Email security

                    I'd like to see the core joomla product catch some simple statistics of email usage (e.g. how many emails flowing through the site) and enable a "captcha" box on all the email generating forms - contact form, "send a copy of this article to a friend" form etc. This would be to detect and prevent use of a joomla site by spammers to send spam email through **YOUR** email account. Simple changes... the core product really should not be this wide open.

                        • tabbed articles

                          I would like a built in possibility to create tabbed articles. Tab content might be fetched from inline text or from separate database entries.
                          Currently, tabs can be achieved with various plugins, but this has a major problem : front end editing does not keep the tabs-code. This code is lost and all the tabbed content showed in one page. Only the tab titles are kept.

                              • In 1.6 article manager show entire category path

                                I found the demo confusing in regards to the article manager displaying only the lowest child category.

                                It would be helpful to either display the entire category chain up to the top level parent, or to show this when I hover over the category.

                                In 1.5 I have setup section names that relate to the main site pages, and categories for the topics within that page. I've instructed them to use these columns in the article manager to find the article they wish to edit. If I migrate them to 1.6 they will be confused, and this will cause a…

                                  • Possibility to choose module posisitons for template respectively: for each templates certain position.

                                    Beacause different templates may have different position numeration. Choosing a different template makes visual mess.

                                        • Section and category images from last/most view correspondent articles

                                          Instead of sections and categories generic images, option to have image directly from content inside same section and category.
