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".

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

      • Add a named anchor to a module

        Add a named anchor to a module to direct the visitor directly to a module position. Particularly useful for navigation on tablet and smartphone to direct visitor to menu module for exemple.

        • 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.

          • 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.

                  • 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…

                    • 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).

                                    • login/logout menu type

                                      Automatically change a "login" menu type object to "logout" when a user is logged. And add the option to perform the logout directly instead of show another page with the "logout" button...
                                      May I suggest also to put a dropdown list of pages to select in the field "redirect to" instead of making users to write manually the full url?

                                        As a CMS we need to provide two different levels of structures. Navigation and Content logic. The idea of the NBS is to provide a simple but easy structure that allows the admin to maintain his trees.

                                        The NBS must be available and open to the 3rd Party devs as well, as they should be able to add structures into the existing tree or build up their own trees easily.

                                          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.
