    • Update by email

      I would really like users to be able to post updates by email using something like #category and citing their #username #password in the email subject maybe as authentication and category selection.

      • How about a "save and next" button that goes to the next (menu item/article/category) in the list. Useful for editing many items in a row.

        This woulod be highly useful when having to edit large amounts of content/items. For example when you need to chage aliases, update metadata, add images, and the like.

          • Multi category

            Possibility to link a contact to more than one category. Example: Employee, Management, Project team. In general, the idea of linking an item to more than one category could apply to other items also, such as articles for instance. This would for instance reduce the use of featured articles as this would jus be another category.

            • 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.

                  • Native content management on front-end

                    as the 1.5 "FUAL" does: it will be a great goal. In this way an editoc can manage and delete articles, in the respect of ACL.

                                    • auto IP blocker

                                      This feature would have the option of automatically blocking the IP address if anyone who is rejected after registering with the site. This can be an option as sometimes some people do make mistakes when registering and should be allowed to have another go. This would save me so much time dealing with those nuisance registrants and spammers

                                        • Frontend menu wizard

                                          A frontend user should be able to add a menu item from the frontend of the website.

                                          Wizard steps could be like:
                                          1. add menu item
                                          2. add title
                                          3. select menu-itemtype
                                          4. select item
                                          5. select menu
                                          6. select positon in menu
                                          7. save

                                          Best is to make it as easy as possible, without (or as advanced) other options.

                                          This solution would help basic users to manage the website from the frontend better.
