Hi there!

Have you ever looked on the Joomla Extensions Database for a Joomla component or plugin that just doesn't exist, but you desperately need?

Or do you wish Joomla had additional features - like automatic Twitter feeds related to your article's subjects, or new articles based on an RSS feed ...?

If so - let me know! If I like your idea I'll develop it with you and give you a lifetime license for free.

Sincerely,

Barnaby Dixon

Hi Barnaby

I am looking for a Joomla (3.x) Kudos addon (plugin/module) such as the one on http://coinsult.svbtle.com/new-yorks-bitlicense-regulations-catch-bitcoin-businesses-everywhere This gives a simple but clean look. I know there is one for wordpress but unfortunately not one for Joomla.

Thanks
Ann

First off let me say this tool is freaking amazing in a way that is hard to describe it does what it says it does… and does it very well….
The only thing holding this back from being beyond amazing would be the addition of the following feature I don’t know how difficult it would be but I think the number of fans you would get would sky rocket..
Because the upgrade path to a lot of addon’s is to update the in the live site then push then migrate to the new joomla if we could do the following
Clone the original site with the original site so that now you have 2 live copies of original un upgraded site…
Then from the “cloned site” run the upgrade scripts and then and the upgraded version of joomla so that you can remove and upgrade live stuff to see if it works etc etc and then once that was good to go push it from that to upgrade the live site… that would put me over the freaking moon !!!! just a thought..
if there is a way to do that please let me and again thanks for making such an amazing migration tool

Hi there Mark,

Thank you for your comment. The great news is... that is how Migrate Me Plus already works!

It creates a cloned version of your 'live' site and allows you to upgrade everything, test new modules, update a template, and make all kinds of changes, without impacting the live system. Then, when you're ready to put the new upgraded system 'live' it'll do that for you too - back up the old system, remove it, and then replace it with the updated system.

I been creating a movie listing site for long time, and due to the lack of joomla extensions for movies, I am stuck on this project. I use sobipro as cck, but also it lack of some addons for movie, so a good Idea will be to develop a "entry chooser" with a fancy name like "entry anywhere" or "entry selector" just to select in my case movies, other will use it as products chooser, notice it's different to related product, with the entries selector you have the power to select specific product (customer's product which pay more). If you need more details drop me a mail.

Dear Barnaby
I am a visual artist (67 yrs old) so i started late with computers, joomla etc. I discovered to my dismay that a digital photgrapher has no way to write information about the digital photo he just made to that digital photo so that the info stays with the photo wherever the photo goes. In contrast to printed photos, where you very simply just write your stuff on the back of the photo.

My project is making photos of my local plants and animals( multiple photos in detail for each species) and identifying them by scientific name and organizing the photos into a key system.

The key system is text (meta) information that is intimately related to the photos but has to be stored seperately from the photos in tables on a database!!!! Move any photo even a little and the info is lost.!!!

Yes i do know about Exiftool, IPTC,Darwin etc, but they are all hard to handle and time consuming which no doubt accounts for the popularity of Photo Gallery systems.

Hi there John

Thank you for your comment.

Unfortunately it's somewhat difficult to maintain your original information with the photo in the digital age, not least because most websites will rebuild your photo as a new file rather than use the file as-given, which could cause a security hole.

All I can suggest is that you use a service such as flikr.com to store your photos, which does allow you to save some information about the photo, and I believe is also able to read some information such as which camera was used to take the photo, and in some cases, the date it was taken.

Hope that helps. All the best - Barnaby Dixon

Dear Barnaby
Thank you so much for your reply. I do agree with your assessment of the state of affairs with respect to images and the web but i am concerned what may happen to the web as a result.
Given that the monitor screen is the window to the web,it is the ideal medium for human interaction via our primary sense, of seeing.
Therefore images should develop a larger share of human cyberlife.
But..images in contexts such as flickr etc, where the text or metadata about the image is seperately stored means that innovations in visual applications will suffer and lag well behind.
Imagine this analogy:You write a book but only the name of the publisher is on the cover. Your name as author is not allowed on the book cover nor elsewhere but can be found via a request in writing to the publisher. What would happen to book writing and publishing?

Hi John

Unfortunately that's the nature of the internet, since photos and other materials can be so quickly copied and redistributed, and there's nothing to stop authorship details being lost.

Dear Barnaby
I have always liked the "breadcrumbs" navigation idea on websites because it seems so simple,fast,flexible and intuitive to use. In Joomla 3.2.2 however,the breadcrumbs module that is packaged,creates a trail that by design,always includes whatever "category name" the articles are assigned to.
Thus:Home > menu-name > Category-name > Article-name etc.etc.
For my site i need the category name to be hidden or taken out of the breadcrumb trail because the display of that content is a uncontrolled mess and also not part of my intended structure.
After days of googling and finding many other users with the same wish,but finding no suitable 3rd party joomla extension, i would like to put the proposal to you.
Would you consider creating a very simple,no fancy css, Breadcrumb module whereby one may control what ends up in the breadcrumb trail on the frontend?
Kind Regards John Bestevaar

Idea is a K2/Joomla social voting / vote up plugin, for example you want users to submit content to your site like article or form to content or video or images and then you want to offer a contest or giveaway like $100 or free something or get 10 votes get a free membership or credit or coupon or whatever, to encourage users to get their friends and family to vote on their submitting. Now we have already 5 star in k2 and we have many extensions for social recommend for our own content, this is different because it calculate total votes, makes a contest or game out of it, and encourage user to vote and recruit others to vote to win the contents. Those social recommend votes give us backlink to our site, what if they must vote by Facebook like, Twitter follow or recommend, and G+, any of the big 3, now we can get so many real backlinks without much effort. It is great for SEO and improve site ranking and authority. The plugin would calculate total social votes and possibly have method to select which area of site to add the plugin and also have a thumb up/vote up option for if want to collect votes from non social users also, possibly order content by most votes (optional), this could help to generate content for a site and also to get it ranked.

I would guess the reason it dont exist it might not possible but seems a shame, we can import tweets and facebook comments why not google reviews (the kind that show up in search results "13 Google Reviews", these are more valuable to most of my small business clients, many sites post customer reviews on their site but it would look more credible if coming straight from Google places reviews. Also if can get the "Write a Review" that would have great SEO help to clients as this is a major SEO ranking factor so getting more reviews is a good thing more important than G+ or Likes or Twitter followers. I am not talking about G+ or liking a page im talking about customer reviews.

About 30% of my clients need ecommerce. about 30% of those want to sell on ebay and amazon as well as joomla (or already do). I found one joomla extension being sold for $1000+ for snch with ebay and no synch for Amazon. There are some 3rd party services that start at $75 per month that will snch amazon and ebay together on 3rd party platform/shop. If its possible to develop a powerfull tool that can do amazing things like synch up Amazon and Ebay with Joomla then PHP-Web-Design/VibaWeb Ltd. I think would be the ones to do it if anyone can. I just lost a client because of it today, but I am more interested in the amount of clients I could gain by offering a reasonable solution using a flexible platform like Joomla for this demand.

(Googlebase is also worth noting but there are joomla extentions for that already)

There are quite a few different menu systems for Joomla at this point but what would be incredibly useful is to add geo-location functionality into the menu system. Many components for Joomla support having their content geomapped such as K2, Mosets Tree, Jomsocial, Community Builder and Sobipro and even Joomla Articles via tags. Those are the ones just off the top of my head but none will actually filter the results from your menu entry into those components based off of the users location. Why not give a menu type that would allow you to select which tables actually store the latitude and longitude for the entries in two dropdowns. With everything becoming location aware this is a feature that very few are able to provide so there is no standardized way to provide this currently. Hope my explanation makes sense, I wouldn't think this would be that hard to do but to date I have yet to find a good way of doing this.

Kazaam is perfect in the way it works. And that is the best part of it. It always works.

But there could be more functions in it to make it even better!

It is now possible to select which categories it should generate the menu from.

What I want to suggest is the following function in the plugin:

Option 1: Choose which categories
or
Option 2: All categories

So when you create a category you no longer have to add it through the Kazaam plugin because it already does it then.

Kazaam! - fabulous extension - exactly what I need but ...

I need to be able to generate two sets of submenus for all the articles in the same category - One linked to Top and One Linked to Main Menu. I repeated the menu#x entry in the plugin and amended them acccordingly, but it seems to only create the submenus in the last of the entries as it reads down them, so menu#1 did not have the submenus created but menu#2 did. I assume its because they both relate to the same input category.

Is there a way to get around this, or could this be added to a future release?

Thanks

Rob

Looking at that link, it was not correct. I think the version extension has been taken down from the JED. I know the author stated he could no longer support the extension. Basically it kept older versions of each article and you could roll back to the earlier version. Very essential in case you make a horrible mistake in an article.

There is a joomla component called "Versioning". But it has not been upgraded to Joomla 3.x. It is really an essential extension, and hopefully you can create a 3.x version. http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/authoring-a-content/content-versioning/6260

Hello from Tennessee,
I thought I might leave the link below for those of you who might need more details about increasing the memory limit on their local server. This particular link refers to MAMP and MAMP PRO. The php.ini file turns out to be a wonder file when it come to cudtomizing phpmyadmin and all sorts of things related to allowing your website to employ certain programs. This is where you will make necessary changes to employ an upload folder on your phpmyadmin c panel

This discussion is a great idea!
Just sad to see it fizzled out 15 months ago.

The one thing that I think Joomla needs - Just may be the solution Chris Wombles comment -

A code injector.
I would like to be able to inject css - js - php etc just before opening body tag or just before closing body tag on a page to page basis without fiddling with template source code.

So if I want to include a page or section specific element that requires code to be added into the head or before the closing body tag -
I can create a module (simple form field - non text editor) that I can place a snippet of code into and tell it to place code either into the head or foot and then assign it to pages.

Regards,
William

It is very annoying in Joomla that you need almost always a menue item if you want to alternate the title tag of a page view based on a category or an article. There should be a possibility to have a field on the category edit page as well as on the article edit page to do that. Several plugins seem to manage the problem but they do not realy good because they only write the title in an existing menue item or they produce garbage - especially when the plugin is turned off or it was deleted. It would be much better to have the title stored in the database together with the category respectively the article. If one wants to override it with the setting of a menue item so that should be possible as usual.

I have a request for a simple plugin/feature for Joomla. It might have been part of the system back at the beginning.

On a category blog, you can set up a number of leading articles and a number of intro articles. I would like the leading articles to show the full text (without the readmore if it exists). Then the Intro articles would show whatever is before the readmore.

Such a simple idea, yet I can't find anything that does that.

A lot of people would use this, I think. I know I would love to have that feature. I hope you can write something to do that.
Thanks for giving me the opportunity to ask for it!

I have been trying to come to terms with joomla for about a month (off and on). As a new user the most frustrating part about joomla is not joomla itself. It is the search engine on the joomla forum.

I have found it really difficult to find previous posts in the forum by searching.

Yet when I go to google I can quickly find articles and discussions even posts inside joomla forum.

It is not very helpfull to "hit" every instance of the word "save" when I am looking for "save joomla" or "back-up".

So top of my wish list is a google style search engine for the forum. Either that or some instructions that are easy to find. Not sure if such a request fits inside "extensions" developer capabilities.

Hi again,

I think the best idea might yet be to add a css file called 'overrides.css' in your template/css/ folder, and add the override rules you want in there.

Then add a reference to the overrides.css file just before the in your template index.php file, and your overrides will work perfectly. They also won't be overwritten by any upgrades.

All the best,

Wow...finally a place for my ideas. I am a professional creative thinker, so this contact form for me to submit my ideas is just what I have been looking for. I generally think these ideas right of the top of my head and rarely write them down...so with that said, sometimes what I "see" does not translate into words to well. But I will give it a go.

SITUATION: In the past month I have literally rewritten all my css changes for all my modules and template pages due to third party file updates. Of 15 different Modules and one template. I had a total of 15 module new updates, 1 template new update and 3 additional template -reupdates with 7 modules having additional re-updates as well.

TITLE: Overrides Plugin
DESCRIPTION: This plugin will load up a single css file to override all other css within a template or module. This will benefit ALL joomla users that need to alter their CSS throughout their website.

FUNCTION: In Admin/Plugins you will assign the file for the plugin to load. You can name this plugin anything you like and locate it anywhere you need. This allows better chances that this file will NEVER be overwritten.

SOLUTION: If I had a single source for template overrides, I can easily maintain my changes and never fear of losing them due to updates. With that said, I will never have to worry or track which modules I edited.

I hope this explained enough, if you need more details, feel free to email me at voice4vision@hotmail.com
