  1. multilingual site settings

    make the Site settings link contain the ?locale=<current_locale> parameter. At multilingual pages regardless which language tree you are in, you always land on the default language settings. if a user has to translate the SiteConfig, they have to manually add the /admin/settings/?locale= param at the end of the url.

  3. Better drag and drop mode for reordering site pages

    Currently when you reorder a page above another page it becomes a draft that you need to go into and publish. This is not logical because people don't associate the order of a page as part of the page but part of the list itself. A list is a bunch of items in a specific order.

    One improved implementation could be to enter "reordering mode" after moving a page, where the changes are drafted until they are applied after which the new order takes effect.

  5. Upload quotas

    Would be great to limit upload quotas per SilverStripe installation via the framework rather than server side .... Because we're lazy :P.

  6. Pseudo-hierarchy in site tree

    Sites with many (e.g. hundreds) of pages at the same level in the hierarchy become extremely difficult to manage.

    SilverStripe should allow the creation of "management-only" page types which do not appear in the public site navigation, in order to improve manageability of large sites.

    By means of one example, an online magazine might have a page for each issue; creating a pseudo-page for (e.g.) "year" which does NOT become part of the public navigation would help manage the site by better organizing the site tree.

  7. Reflect / control site status (dev mode) in CMS

    If a site is in dev mode, that fact should be reflected very visibly in the CMS.

    It would be better for a CMS user with Developer permissions to be able to put the site into dev mode from the CMS, but it must be made more difficult to accidentally leave a site in dev mode.

  8. Migrate dev functions from URL into CMS

    Certain dev functions, specifically clearing the cache (../?flush=all or ../?flush=1) and rebuilding the database (../dev/build) are currently managed from the site URL when appropriate admin users are logged in.

    These functions should be available to those admin users as part of the main CMS navigation instead.

    Flushing the cache should also include the option to flush the cache of thumbnails which have been created for efficiency.

  9. Make the framework faster

    The base-line performance of the framework could be better. Right now, things like auto-complete handlers really struggle to deliver adequate performance, especially on high-traffic sites.

  10. Improve UI for advancedworkflow

    Advancedworkflow is powerful, and the underlying model is basically right, but the UI very difficult to understand. I'd love to see some design effort but into both the end-user workflow features, and the workflow designer.

  11. Allow multiple files to be uploaded in Internet Explorer

    Currently if an Internet Explorer (10 or 11) CMS user tries to upload multiple Files or Images via the Files tab or Insert Media box, only the first file uploads successfully, and the rest fail: http://spdr.me/Kjvn

    Seems this has been looked into, but nothing has been done on it for a year: https://github.com/silverstripe/silverstripe-cms/issues/787

  12. Improve File insert screen from WYSWIG

    Currently when inserting files/images into page you have to flick through pages of uploaded files to find what you are after.

    Allowing more files instead of 10 would be a basic improvement.
    Allowing search to work with in the popup
    Remembering the last page or position i was open at would be huge improvement.

  13. Allow the site tree sidebar when editing a page to be resized

    When editing a page, you get the site tree in a panel on the left. Currently, the only option for change its size is to collapse it. At times, it is useful to be able to resize it, especially to remove the need for horizontal scrolling.

    With Netbeans becoming a free, easy and intuitive tool. It's sometimes a pain when you have to add certain things like templating silverstripe rules to the mix. SilverStripe + Netbeans = WEBSITE SUCCESS.
