    • Smart Search in the Back-end applied to the Article Manager and other Managers

      Smart search for content in the front-end is good for users, but when revising articles in the back-end, you cannot search for content in articles

              • For Admin there should be country grant list. and if needed country block list .

                For Admin there should be country grant list. and if needed country block list . I think website administrator is from one countary. so denai for all and grant only one or two country as per requirment. It help preventing from heaking the joomla based site.

                  • CRM and DB's compatible with FileMaker

                    Filemaker is becoming the standard for DB's managing and a CRM manage also through FileMaker would be great to see in the next version of J!

                    • Joomla Eclipse plugin

                      It might be convenient to create a simple Eclipse plugin for Joomla! in order for developers to quickly start writing their extensions, without much hassle. Plugin would hopefully provide at least the following functionality:
                      - Create a new Joomla! component/module/plugin/template (generating the correct folder structure for views/models/tables/etc)
                      - Package the extension into an installation zip file, including of semi-auto generation of the install xml file
                      - Code completion (this actually will work already, thanks to PHP Development Tools plugin) with inline help (this will also work out-of-the-box thanks to Javadoc comments)
                      Optional features:
                      - Download the latest stable/testing version of…

                      • "no editor" parameter for a single item

                        A new parameter to be set for the single article or a html module which disable the editor independently from the global configuration and the single user settings.
                        I often face with a "problem" when I manage a Joomla site: if I create an article or a custom html module disabling the editor to
                        insert some code, and then I edit that article after many time forgetting to disable the editor, the code I originally put in the article is lost.
                        I hope someone will think about this new feature and implement it in Joomla 1.7

                          • Please make the article menu collapsable.

                            Basically I'd like to see the articles in the menus collapsible. This way the articles are hidden under the main item. If the main menu item is Home and I have 20 pages under that it would be hidden if I clicked on an arrow to the left. I'd click it again and it would expand the list again. Think making the back end list look the same as a menu drop down that is collapsible.

                                  • Assign multiple articles to a category with Ajax power in the backend

                                    When we have many articles without any category assigned, we need to have an option where we can select articles and assign to a category instantly. This will allow admins to change or assign categories to articles without having to load the single article one by one.

                                    • Featured and read more for categories

                                      By being able to use the read more link in the category description and setting the category as 'Featured' one can i.e. create an intro to a category blog page on the frontpage.
                                      In the Featured manager you could add terms like 'Article:' or 'Category:' (like alias) or add a small icon to distingish between articles and categories.

                                      • a software to organize and see joomla templates in your machine

                                        As many people notice if you have a lots of templates and extensions if dificult to find the template you want to use for a site , so you have to go manually zip(rar) by zip(rar) looking one by one to se what template fits better for the site you wanna do. my idea is tomake a software that lets me see inside the rar file and look for the template preview, so i dont have to open one by one. A software to organize and see all the joomla templates and extensions, in our machine.
