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 vote and comment on it.

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

            • Draggable module positioning

              Joomla needs a way for users to easily visualize how modules will appear on various pages. Users could resize and drag all modules (while simultaneously viewing the content) in order to easily make changes, as in Artisteer.

              • WRAPER

                Improve IN/OUTparameter passing between Joomla and external applications (which could be wraped into Joomla framework). Passing username, password, +other critical parameters would help integrate Joomla with hundreds of other SOAP apps.

                • Replace Ideas system (UserVoice) with Joomla extension!

                  Replace the current system used here at idea.joomla.org with a Joomla extension (e.g. a customized version of obSuggest).

                  That additionally to the UserVoice features:
                  - Allow people to down vote a feature.
                  - Report abuse.
                  - Report duplicates.
                  - Display the time a comment was submitted/modified.
                  - Integrate with the other Joomla.org sites (single-sign-on).

                    • Blog view for tag component

                      Currently the tag component offers a list of items tagged or a list of tags, but it would be helpful to have a blog display, with all the same features and options of a "category blog," for each tag when clicked.

                      • admin ID

                        User id of joomla 1.6 admin isn't 1 - it's 4X, and in joomla 1.5 it's 6X,
                        reset autoincrement of jos_users to make the default administrator id=1 in the default package which is available on the site for download.

                          • json grid in admin for quick sorting and filtering

                            Admin is full of lists view like, module manager, plugin manager. And we can sort these by clicking to column's heading. In my opinion it should use json grid so that this will not require page load and will save time

                              • 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.

                                • Deleted unused images

                                  Possibilité de lister les images inutilisées dans le gestionnaire d'images.
                                  Le gestionnaire de média devrait pouvoir scanner toute la base de données afin de la comparer avec les fichiers présents dans le dossier images de façon à pouvoir lister celles qui ne sont pas utilisées en donnant la possibilité de supprimer celles inutiles.

                                  • Google Webmaster Tools Compatiility

                                    The core components and modules in Joomla should be more compatible with Google Webmaster Tools. For example, the core menu module should bee compatible with google's menu indexing capability, and sitemaps should be auto generated.

                                    • Better TOC (table of content)

                                      Joomla should have a more powerful and versatile TOC (Table of Content).

                                      After all Joomla is a content manager system and it should handle an important aspect as it is the TOC better.

                                      The new TOC should be able to:

                                      * rappresent the list of the content in a droplist (and not only rendered in a table).
                                      An article made of many pages will have a long TOC and having it rendered in a droplist will save a lot of page space and it will be better to look at.

                                      * ability to change the name of the first page…

                                      • CLI Integrity Active Scanner

                                        It would be fantastic to be able to setup a cron job active scanner that would check all the core files of Joomla periodically. If Joomla had a hash value for files in the core it could run checks on itself. Also using the install XML files of third party extensions it could identify files that are not supposed to be on the server. The scanner could then email the supper admin to report possible breaches of security.

                                        Finally if the scanner could check permissions too it would help the administrator find potential security holes before bad spiders do.
