  1. Lose the infinite scroll and show me number of items

    I'm not a fan of infinite scrolling. I don't think it adds anything to the Craft CP other than more JS. I would at least like the option to select "standard" pagination in the control panel. When I'm looking at members, Assets sources, or channel entries, there are no counts anywhere. I have no idea if our current site has 500 or 5000 members, I have no idea if there are 50 or 500 blog posts, and I have no idea how many images are in Assets source X - and neither does the client. Without pagination, we can't even…

    • Ability to hide or disable fields based on a user group

      It would be nice to be able to hide or disable fields based on a user group. I imagine this would happen in the Layout Designer, so that it can be based on section, rather than always tied to a field.

      • Provide easier access to Settings sub pages (2.5)

        Craft 2.5 removes the Settings shortcut dropdown, making it cumbersome to access Fields, Sections etc sub pages (it's still two clicks, but the extra page refresh and having to scan for the correct sub page in the Settings overview page makes a big difference compared to using the old dropdown menu).

        This isn't a huge deal for sites in production, but during the dev phase it's going to be a chore not being able to access these pages in a more direct manner.

        • Image Assets Preview

          Whilst editing entires, when you double click an image asset it shows the file name and title etc., but there is no way to preview the image from here.

          Even in the assets window you have to tick the asset then go to the top pull down menu to view it (and if multiple are selected you can't view them all)

          A lightbox preview would be most welcome.... a basic editor too but that's another thing :)

          • Arrange fields in rows rather than only vertically stacked

            It would be good to be able to arrange fields in rows when adding them to tabs. If i have a bunch of fields that are switches/controls then having them stacked vertically doesn't make sense visually.

            • Field instructions could be entered on the field layout designer

              Instead of adding instructions when you are editing a field, it would be useful to add instructions when you add a field to a section (since fields can be shared across sections).

              • Option to list singles in CP sidebar

                On small and medium sites, I often find I only need to create 1 to 3 singles, yet clients get confused because their names aren't immediately visible in the UI. I can imagine it helping them to see all the singles listed under a heading, just like Structures and Channels — now the sidebar shows every recognizable area of their site.

                Of course this would would need to be optional, and it introduces an inconsistency in that clicking a Single's name would take them directly to an editing screen instead of loading a list of entries in the right pane, but…

                • Add or remove dashboard items per user group

                  As an admin, I would like the ability to control the availability of dashboard widgets by user group. For example, we have a user group with a very basic access to add only calendar events. These are not tech savvy users, and having the _Blog and Tonic_ feed on their dashboard creates confusion. I would like the ability to remove access to the _Blog and Tonic_ feed, or any other widget, based on user group.

                    • Sortable custom columns

                      It is very nice to have customizable columns for Entries as standard now (like the DashCols plugin used to provide).

                      What DashCols did that 2.5 lacks, however, was the ability to sort by any of the columns that one might choose. I really liked that feature (sorting by a date field other than posted or expires).

                      If you wanted to one-up DashCols, then make it so you can just click on the heading to adjust the sorting.

                      • Config setting to hide blue "Updates" icon

                        The `allowAutoUpdates` config setting is great! It ensures that our clients can't "accidentally" update the site in the production environment.

                        But they still see a giant blue icon, prompting them that updates are available. What a tease!

                        Would you be so kind as to add a `showUpdatesIcon` config setting as well? This way, we can hide the big blue icon from clients, and they won't feel like their website is constantly out of date.

                        To be perfectly clear, I'm not asking to remove the "1 update available" link at the bottom of the page. That one is subtle enough that…

                          • Failed tasks should expose the error message in the CP

                            If a task fails, the CP's task progress icon will turn into a red circle. When you click on it, it will show the task that was running and a "Failed" status. If you want to find out why, currently you have to search through craft/storage/runtime/logs/craft.log for the error. It would be nice if that error was exposed in the CP as well.

                              • The Entries field type displayed related Entries in a vertical list

                                The current implementation of the Entries field type _functionally_ works the same as a Playa field in EE, but it displays the entries in an inline-list, which seems strange when the idea is to be able to re-order them by dragging and dropping.

                                Could we get a config option to display the related entries in a list instead of an inline style?

                                    • Compare Drafts / Diff Tool for Entries

                                      I love Craft's Drafts. Compared to everything else out there, the live previewing, combined with sharing of unpublished drafts work extremely well.

                                      The only thing missing is when comparing a couple drafts or a draft with the live version, it'd be great to see what the differences are.

                                      One simple option I'd love to see is having a "compare drafts" mode; when invoked, it'd pull up a live preview with forwards and backwards buttons where you can flip between the versions and spot the differences yourself between versions.

                                      Looking at how other CMS do it, for example, ProcessWire has their…

                                      • Tabs to separate user profile content

                                        Just like entries, there needs to be tabs in the user profile to separate content. This is especially useful for community driven sites, This also is somewhat of a workaround for the lack of locale-specific fields.

                                        • Bold Field Labels to Improve Scannability

                                          I propose bolding the field labels on publish pages to improve scannability. Once publish pages grow, finding what you're looking for is just generally harder than it should be.

                                          Thanks!
