Joomla Idea Pool

Welcome to the Joomla Idea Pool. Please add your suggestions here for future versions of Joomla and vote on current suggestions.

What features would you like to see in future versions of Joomla?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

    • A commitment to the Joomla MVC Legacy classes for 3.5 and 4.5 LTS releases

      Joomla 1.6 introduced new MVC subclasses like Admin, List, Item, and Form. Let's make a commitment to maintain these 9 classes through the next two LTS releases. This will give some stability to extension developers, and provide a date certain when components need to be upgraded.

              • Custom fields in content

                Possibility to add customs fields in articles, like in Wordpress. For example you can add article_img field with a value, and get this value by adding $this->article_img in your template etc etc. The limit is only your fantasy.

                • Featured Articles manager "Finish Featuring" editable date column

                  A Chris guy has already suggested a "Finish Featuring" date field in the article options.

                  But, what I would like to see also, are two editable date (calendar field) columns in the Featured Articles manager. "Start Featuring" and "Finish Featuring".

                  When you set an article to feature, you must be prompted to feature immediately or select a start date.

                  The 2 columns in the Manager will help to quickly adjust the start and end date for all featured articles.

                  • Global Payment platform

                    Joomla need a global mechanism for payments. Payment Gateways should then be connected and be used for any type of extension. The current situation is a mess where a website might need several payment solutions to fill the needs of the website functions.
                    Memberships, web shops, advertising, invoicing, subscriptions or whatever solution you have, should have a common payment mechanism to connect to any avaliable payment gateway.

                    • automatic pruning of extensions on the JED

                      currently extensions are left on the JED without any checks to see if the project is still alive or supported. This leads to lots of extensions doing the same thing that are not supported and clutter up the JED while also potentially leaving unsecure extensions being implemented on joomla sites.

                      I propose that all developers of extensions, and per extension, have an email sent to them every 3 months to validate that the project is still alive. This can be accomplished by them clicking an enclosed link like email validation. This information of last validation can be included on the…

                      • Template Selection Center

                        It would be better if designers can contribute their templates in joomla and site admins can get a list of released templates at the backend. So that they can choose which template to use in their site. It should have cron system which can crawl the joomla site to access new templates.

                          • Module publishing/unpublishing from frontend

                            Allow modules to be published / unpublished from users with the appropiate credentials with a simple on/off switch at the Frontend.
                            (Similar to the article edit button which is only visible to certain user groups.)
                            Almost certainly a simple job for someone with a working knowledge of joomla development. What do you think?

                            Go on, vote for it!! You know it makes sense ;-)

                            Cheers..... Nick

                                    It would be great if there could be some sort of CSS control panel so someone without CSS understanding could make some quick basic adjustments like color, positions or fonts without editing the code.

                                    • Automathic resizing intro images

                                      Intro image is a powerfull tool to make clean atricles but I miss automathic resizing of the image I want to use as intro (could be a link to a huge image) into a thumb image. The size of this thumb should be configurable (i.e: somewhere i configure all my intro images to be 50x50) any picture or link I use as intro image should be automathicly resized to 50x50

                                      • Demo In Search Results

                                        The less clicks the better. It would be great to include the programmers demo link if available in the search result itself. It is so time-consuming to click on the program and then demo if available then try to find the demo within the programmer's site. It would be better to Search > Demo > Choose To Install or Not.
