  1. zend integration within joomla

    Zend framework is the most powerful MVC framework in PHP. It should be integrated to joomla. So will help to increase the growth rate of the joomla. user will be given choices to design extensions natively in both joomla framework and zend framework.

      • menu tree in content manager

        Typo3 like menutree. Click on menu-item in left column, see content on the right.

        See also component Pages-and-Items.

        I called this menu tree in content manager, but it might be more like the current menu-manager with the functionality to edit the content which is related to the menu-item.

        Example: You got a menu-item to an article. In the admin you see the menu-tree (of say, mainmenu) which you click open to browse to the page you want to edit (javascript dtree). Click on the page in the tree and on the right you see the editor with all the article-fields.

        • Automatic image delete

          Have the option to automatically delete images (or other resources) which are no longer used when articles are trashed. Similarly, warn users when they are deleting an image which is currently being used.

                • 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

                      • 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.

                        • 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.

                          • Add Citation Option for Articles

                            Joomla on its own is an amazing utility for sharing information and ideas throughout the web; however one key feature of knowledge sharing which doesn't appear to be included in the tool itself is is the ability to effectively list citations to other works.

                            For instance, a critique of a book or other persons article may make general reference to that other work; however I believe there's value in being able to include a proper citation: Including Title of Cited Work, Publish Date of Cited Work, Author of Cited Work and other relevant information which would enhance the value of…

                                • Font Manager

                                  When the web embedded font revolution kicks off, it would be cool if Joomla was first on scene to harvest the glory and allow its users to great magnificent looking webpages.

                                  The Manager itself will provide a centralized way of keeping track of the fonts and allow J! core as well as 3rd-party extensions to pull the list of installed font and offer them in different settings (e.g. via the content editor).
