  1. Documentation for Extensions developers

    This other weblog tool (starting with a W and ending on ordpress) owes part of its popularity on the sheer abundance of (third party) extensions. The PivotX extension system is quite powerfull, but without basic documentation hard to grasp.

      • A nifty interface for pages (with subchapters)

        To make PivotX even better for larger websites, subchapters would come in handy. A more flexible pageoverview

          • Implement "don't show in menu" option

            An option to let a page to not appear in the menu, so you can make auxiliar pages (legal info pages, landpages for mailing, etc...).

            • implement a 'mail comments on post per author' function

              Blogs with multiple users can recieve comments on post, but they receive all comments on all posts. It'd be nice to be able to just receive comments of the articles YOU wrote, so you'll be able to keep track of discussions and conversations on posts written by yourself.

              • Comments on pages

                Why not treat pages the same as entries? Commenting on pages would be nice.

                • Implement default category setting per user

                  In a multiple user/publisher weblog there currently is no way to specify a default category for each user. When my current users post an entry (none) is selected by default. Being able to specify a default category in the Edit User screen would make entry posting much easier for novice users!

                  • Improve the 'lifestream' extension, so it can *send* to twitter as well.

                    Currently the Lifestream extensions pulls in information from twitter and the like, but you can't _send_ updates to Twitter.

                      • SQLite as a database option

                        I think SQLite could be a viable alternative between text-based database and full, server based MySQL database.

                        The main advantage is that SQLite is that it is actually faster for smaller website, and is just as portable (if not more, due to being a single file) as text files. It might not be as source-readable but so is every other "proper" database.

                        Another reason is that most hosts limit the amount of database you can have in MySQL, or the size of the database... etc. Whereas they don't (mostly likely can't) limit SQLite databases, especially when you have cases where…

                        • Add OpenID support.

                          OpenID support would enable people to log in with already-existing credentials. I don't see why I need yet another login/password combination for my personal blog. http://openid.net

                          • add ldap module for user login

                            To extend the capability of the PivotX even more, developing an ldap module to intergrate user accounts with other portal and web-based systems is the way to go.

                              If you set up bigger websites you have to create lots of pages with identical templates. A clone function would be handy.

                              • (Extra) Field Manager

                                I was thinking about extra fields, and how it really makes more sense to have a general manager for them instead of plugins that basically just duplicate each other's functionality, and the only difference is in label and the limit on data type.

                                So basically you go into the manager, and you could add/change/delete fields on any item in the database.

                                So, lets say for Entry, Page, Category, Chapter; you can add fields to all of them.

                                Each field can be:
                                Data: Text, date, time, counter, id, code (no formatting)
                                Source (file path): image, file, template (<- hopefully we can…

                                • Only allow registered, verified and activated users to comment

                                  Only allow comments by registered users, with registration requiring admin approval. First, someone would have to register for an account and verify their e-mail address. Once this stage has been completed, the account will have to be activated by the site admin who can eyeball the details supplied. Admittedly this will put off a lot of people commenting, but will give site admin full control over who is allowed to comment (such as only allowing friends to comment).

                                      • Enabling commenting in weblogs instead of overall configuration

                                        I think we should add a weblogconfig setting "allow comments". It makes sense to me that you can define the comments settings per weblog.
