1. Suggestion: Use Search Engine Friendly URLs In Forum Module

2. Why uCoz needs this feature: Tor better SEO, I think ucoz should add setting for webmaster : Use Search Engine Friendly URLs In Forum Module

3. Your thought on how it can be implemented:


instead of URL : http://forum.ucoz.com/forum/3-14706-1

replaced by: http://forum.ucoz.com/forum/ucoz-server-status/3-14706-1

Such SEO better with the search engines ( Google, Bing,.. )

1. Suggestion:

*) Graphic menu with effects + with open in a new window/page/tab option.
**) More image formats supported for this widget ( jpg, png, bmp etc. )

2. Why uCoz needs this feature:

*) For example:

a) If you use the graphics menu with effects to build a menu just like in Site Menu Builder the option Open in a new window should be present because it represents a basic functionality that is very appreciated and needed.

b) If you make a page with many picture items ( like a catalog with locations, buildings, etc ), that show more information when you hover the mouse over the initial picture, you want people when they click the picture to go to the official page of that particular item, but in a new tab/window so he/she can easily come back to click on another item from the catalog. ( so the user doesn't have to leave the original page, because he is still interested to see other items )

**) Right now only .gif is supported, so someone needs to upload their picture then rename it to .gif in order for the widget to work.

3. Your thought on how it can be implemented:

*) The same way Site Menu Builder - open in a new window option works ( _blank )
**) The same way you expanded the working image formats for other modules, widgets ( make .jpg, .png, .bmp etc. visible in file manager and the widget to work with such image formats )

This widget has a big potential and can be used in many ways.

Thank you so much.


1. Suggestion:
Upgrade / make an alternative "graphics menu with effects" widget or a new function of the photo album that is able to display galleries of pictures or picture by picture on specific pages in the following way : When you hover the mouse over the picture a new picture will appear and it will behave like this :

go-thassos.gr/visiting-thassos/hotels/ntinas-resort?anchor=node-618 (scroll down see the small pictures on the right side)

2. Why uCoz needs this feature:

It combines beauty and utility like never before.

3. Your thought on how it can be implemented:
jQuery, java-script, HTML5

These are usually too complex for many site administrators to implement :
http://cssglobe.com/easiest-tooltip-and-image-preview-using-jquery/
http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex5/stickytooltip.htm

Some help from uCoz would be great.

1. Suggestion:
Make it possible to put picture by picture from the photo album to specific pages.

2. Why uCoz needs this feature:
Because right now it forces the user to go to a gallery page, instead of seeing the pictures in a specific page that talks about the subject.

3. Your thought on how it can be implemented:
Simple, allow the light box code to be easily copied from the gallery to a specific page, without the need to manually search the code in page source and copy paste it line by line and move it to another page.

1. Suggestion: Make the "report" button in the forum module available in all modules.

2. Why uCoz needs this feature: More efficient way to report broken entries.

3. Your thought on how it can be implemented: Create a universal $CODE$ to represent the "report" button/url.

I know, I'm currently doing that, but a lot of the mail goes into my spam folder.

1 My suggestion is for new users to be able to access created sited with a Facebook login and then it registers them as a user
For example *link removed by Sunny* once you sign in and it becomes a member. it is built into their member sign up and in area.

2 I think that ucoz needs this because now a days it is common for people to not want to register say for a site they just visited and not know but they normally if they see login with Facebook button they can click it and it logs them in via Facebook and lets them skip the registration process. This would also help sites created by people so that they can easily have visitors or guest sign up with a Facebook login instead of going to the ucoz id.

3 I think this could be implemented in accouple ways, First is you guys could add it as either a widget or a gadget in the builder. Ucoz could as make it standard on their site along with the login to uid, like implement it into the login form module and go from there

1. Suggestion: Ability to organize entries just as categories.

2. Why uCoz needs this feature: Because for sites that have a large number of entries in different categories it is very important to them that this entries go with specific order. In the current state if something does not enter in order or accidentally deleted it's unable to be set it in the right order, unlike "organize categories" option where we can modifying the order on our choice.

3. Your thought on how it can be implemented: Utilize the same system as in categories management-->organize categories.

I was thinking about new buttons that can be useful for all:

Button "Like" "No like" (from the site)
Button for Site Chat
Button "Go up"



For registred users can be included "Fast menu" one click = see profile / last visitis / favorite pages on website

¿What do you think?

1 Suggestion:
You need two types of custom blocks : Global Blocks custom sets and Local Blocks.

2. Why uCoz needs this feature:
More flexibility when designing pages. Not being limited by global blocks rigid design.

3. Your thought on how it can be implemented:
a) Global blocks - be able to make a couple of global block sets 1, 2, 3 like custom menus and just select the type of global block you want on a particular page. Example: for English pages the user selects the English global block set, for Russian pages the user selects the Russian global block set. These sets can be defined in control panel.

You may want to put pictures that have English text on them that link to some text on the English pages, and pictures that have Russian text on them that link to some other text on the Russian pages.

b) Local blocks - be able to insert local blocks instead of global blocks, that allows you to put a particular combination of different blocks depending on a user needs for that page.

1 Suggestion:
Adjustment to Social Bar.

2. Why uCoz needs this feature:
To improve effectiveness and increase usefulness.

3. Your thought on how it can be implemented:
A slimmer social bar is always better. Try ultra slim borders and maybe smaller icons for sharing a site : reduce the white/black border to minimum, like border of 1 pixel.

Thick borders are useless and only clutter websites, especially on smaller resolutions and bad (but popular) aspect ratios like 16:9.

Sharing a link can give you many new visitors while liking a page gives you basically nothing !
Now FB is changing it's like button to recommend for pages, but anyway there is no connection between your FB page and your site pages in terms of likes. There should be a connection somehow or remove this feature as it gives nothing.

1 Suggestion:
New style direction for all new uCoz templates and old templates.

2. Why uCoz needs this feature:
To stay up to date with fresh and responsive template designs. Upgrade to new more eye pleasing designs.

3. Your thought on how it can be implemented:
Take design inspiration for next templates from : http://uthemes.ru/

http://demo.uthemes.ru/index/maximus/0-178
http://demo.uthemes.ru/index/explorer/0-158
http://demo.uthemes.ru/index/gamescope/0-176

Even if you make sites with 1 column or 2 ( 2 global blocks regions, left and right ) please keep them at minimum. Making them huge is counter productive and eats up content space !

Also see that the last template : http://demo.uthemes.ru/index/gamescope/0-176 has an extremely nice setting that all new ucoz designs should have :

#overlay {background-attachment:fixed;background-size:cover;}

OR

#overlay {background:url(/images/picture.jpg) center 0 fixed;background-size:cover;}

To give the background image the possibility to adjust nicely to any screen size.

All future templates should have a cover type background image behind them. The normal design without picture is old fashion. Also consider the possibility of adding this feature to all existing templates.

1. Suggestion: Report bad messages and entries option.

2. Why uCoz needs this feature: On other CMS like phpBB, MyBB etc users have option report indecent messages, when he/she report a message it go to special part in admin area and admin can see only those messages that have been reported not all, so users still have their privacy. It is very useful for the prevention of harassment users via pp.

Also this option should be introduced for all modules ( publisher, blog, file catalog etc... ). It would make easier maintenance of the site if the users could report bad and faulty content and reduce spamming in the comments.

3. Your thought on how it can be implemented: Creating a new part in the admin panel for "Bad messages" + introduction of new code like $REPORT$ that could be incorporated into the code. After user report a message or entry it would go to special part in admin area and await for moderation.

P.S. Also wanted to repeat my proposal from couple posts ago, i do not believe that it is difficult to perform due to something like this already exists but is very necessary. smile

An option where you can report a private message. The administrator will NOT be allowed to view any message, only the ones that have been reported.
