NormalX, You already can switch to desktop version of the site from a PDA site. And as the PDA template is universal, you shouldn't even see the /pda part if you don't go to it specifically.

1. Suggestion: Paypal method for buy services (paypal only and not associated with other methods)

2. Why uCoz needs this feature: Users can buy more conveniently and quickly. Users worldwide use Paypal. There would be additional costs. There would be more users interested in purchasing.

3. Your thought on how it can be implemented: Only adding a paypal method. Actually users can use 2checkout but some countries need pay for use it and charge account. Implanting Paypal users will be happy without additional costs or frames.

1. Suggestion: Allow to add output code of Import of Remote Code, EMAIL FORM, GLOBAL BLOCK, POLL, IMFORMER ($RCODE_#$, $EMAIL_FORM$, $GLOBAL_BLOCK$, $POLL$, $MY_INFORMER$), in entry post of all modules (Publ, Ad Board, Blog, Game, News, Forum, File Catalog, Site Catalog)

2. Why uCoz needs this feature: Take maximize advantage of those features and save time to modify code.

3. Your thought on how it can be implemented: Enable this feature in user group setting. Then, site manager can enable for any user group to apply this feature.

Below is a demo that Poll work in entry post but it already modified code. Since we can not put it directly in entry.

Poll in entry of publiser module

Suggestion #1
1. Suggestion: Update Links [Not MANUALLY AS INPUT FIELDS but for the WHOLE ucoz System]
2. Why uCoz needs this feature:
» The current links are outdated./look confusing
» For profile it is right now /index/8 or index/8-[UID(UserID)]
:Change profile to /myprofile
:Change users to /profile[UID], /user[uid],/username or let us choose which one smile
» To make our website look more professional as they are built on a Special/Unique platform.
3. Your though on how it can be implemented:
Update the current links
Change the destination in the CMS or database.
Or whatever way you guys make the links .htaccess, i have no CLUE on what you USE for urls.

Clarification for my other suggestions.

Clarification #1[Post: 94521]

Sorry for CAPS their meant to stand out!
1. Module[Languages]
2. Google Translate puts more load on website, makes site load slower
3. Database of original/multiple phrases or we could put or OWN. Just like the renaming of modules[Forgot whats it called]
Thinks it's Substition of original phrases.

Hit that "Thanks" button. :)

1. Suggestion: Improve Service Charge and Payment for Services Provided by uCoz

2. Why uCoz needs this feature: From the main panel (as webtop) would have to be able to charge the personal account and paid services ucoz for different websites in a simpler way. Giving the possibility to recharge using credit cards and debit cards, bank transfer, paypal and other services accepted by the community.

3. Your thought on how it can be implemented: Easy. From the webtop desktop should be an icon for "charge account or pay for services" and thus simplify the method of payment for members.

1. GZIP option in CP
2. To increase loading speed of the website.
it is possible to do it manually but then when you want to recode/add something its hard to find the code.
3. make a GZIP compressor that would cache the layout templates when we click save

Added (2014-05-10, 3:48 PM)

1. Suggestion: Forum Customization

2. Why uCoz needs this feature: I can customize some of the forum but i can not delete them from my HTML code to increase, website load speed.
- Ability to enable it and disable it in forum settings if so needed for beginners on uCoz but I'm proficient so I do not need that no more.

3. Your thought on how it can be implemented: Just the same way you guys implemented appearence of entries for other modules.

1. Suggestion:

Provide the ability to insert thumbnail photos on any page of the site (where HTML is possible) that when clicked become large (using light box method found in the photo module). Make it so that it is linked to photo album module in order to reduce unnecessary work in implementing it.

2. Why uCoz needs this feature:

I have discussed this several times on uCoz.com forums, and i would like to personally explain the method because this is a must feature that all basic sites should have !

Now uCoz does not provide a way to insert thumbnail photos on any page (except for the photo album itself) that when clicked become large (using light box method found in the photo module).

However before the last update it did use a code that could have been easily copied on any page a user wanted, thus creating beautiful photo galleries where the content (text) was actually present.

Nobody wants a separate page where the user must go to see pictures. All major sites now use light box with thumbnails exactly where the content is, not on a separate page.

3. Your thought on how it can be implemented:

It is a very practical functionality that many people will undoubtedly use to create even more attractive and engaging websites.

The following code is the one that should be implemented by uCoz :
Code
<a href="link_to_full_sized_image" class="ulightbox" data-fancybox-group="ultbx" title=""><img alt="" style="margin:0;padding:0;border:0;" src="link_to_thumbnail"></a>


Because it is superior to this one :
Code
<a href="link_to_full_sized_image" title="" class="ulightbox"><img src="link_to_thumbnail"></a>


For the following reasons :

1. It works flawlessly with external images too.

2. It shows the : Forward and Back buttons on the image, thus allowing to easily see all pictures inserted in a page. ( Without needing to close each picture and click on another one. Also you can simply use the mouse scroll button to see the pictures )

Examples :

1. Suggestion:

Update the slideshow to version 2.0 Link and provide the ability to insert the slideshow on any page of the site (where HTML is possible) that when clicked shows the content of the slideshow found in photo albums.

2. Why uCoz needs this feature:

It is a great idea to allow the slideshow code to be implemented on any page a user needs (not on a separate page)

uCoz needs to update the player either to version 2.0 or another system because there is a limited customization on the old http://www.ws-slideshow.com/ 1.4 version. (that is also slow in terms of responsiveness)

Also make it so that when several slideshows exist the first one never disappears (bug) like it does now

3. Your thought on how it can be implemented:

The Code :

Code
<div align="center"><div id="slideshowBlock7"><input type="button" value="name_of_the_button_or_any_name" onclick="this.disabled=true;_uPostForm('',{url:'photo_location'});"/></div>


Or actual examples :
Code
<div align="center"><div id="slideshowBlock7"><input type="button" value="Calliope" onclick="this.disabled=true;_uPostForm('',{url:'/photo/64-0-0-21'});"/></div>


Examples of normal slideshow code implemented :
http://thassos.ucoz.com/index/0-96

Examples of slim photos + normal slideshow:
http://thassos.ucoz.com/index/0-254

Thank you and looking forward for an update on this issue !

Add a new contitional operator that detects visitor with tablet(similar to $USER_AGENT_PDA$).

We need this feature to show content in a proper way.

1. Suggestion: 1. Adding more customize field in Blog, Site News...2. Adding select/check/radio button in customize field rather than only text.

2. Why uCoz needs this feature: It would make uCoz more flexible, the perfect CMS website.

3. Your thought on how it can be implemented:Put this feature in module setting that site administrator can select what kind of method needs to use. (select/check/radio button or text).

1. Suggestion: [+]Show all an [-]Collapse button in PM system

2. Why uCoz needs this feature: It's an essential. For long conversation in PM feature, some times user need to open all their message but they have to click on [+] button one by one. It is ok if your message is short but if long conversation it takes a lot of times.

3. Your thought on how it can be implemented: Just adding two button

[+]Show all
[-]Collapse

1. Suggestion: CSS:IF(PAGE=INDEX){CSS FOR THAT SPECIFIC PAGE}

2. Why uCoz needs this feature: I'm not sure whether this is a good idea but I think this will increase overall speed on other modules because the CSS will contain specific codes for that module[I know I can just use separate style-sheets.] or this will/might be useful while doing some design changes. For example, I have a new template but it is not ready and would like to see it live on the website, but I would want to keep it not visible for site users except myself or a specific user group/testers. I have done this with the HTML part but I couldn't do this with CSS

3. Your thought on how it can be implemented:Just like other modules/using the if code.
Example of HTML below for the CSS/AND for question 3:
Code
<?if($CUR_GROUP_ID$="4")?>
<div class="video_improved">
  <div class="title"><a href="$ENTRY_URL$"><?if(len($TITLE$)>30)?><?substr($TITLE$,0,28)?>...<?else?>$TITLE$<?endif?></a>$MODER_PANEL$</div>
  <div class="video_stats stats"><div class="views"><?if($PLAYS$)?>$PLAYS$<?else?>0<?endif?></div><div class="comments"><a href="$ENTRY_PAGE$#comments"><?if($COMMENTS_NUM$)?>$COMMENTS_NUM$<?else?>0<?endif?></a></div> <div class="more"><a href="$ENTRY_URL$"></a></div></div>
  <div style="background-image:url('$SCREEN_URL$');" class="video_cover"></div>
</div>
<?else?>
<div class="box video">
  <div class="title"><a href="$ENTRY_URL$"><?if(len($TITLE$)>30)?><?substr($TITLE$,0,28)?>...<?else?>$TITLE$<?endif?></a>$MODER_PANEL$</div>
  <div class="play_image" title="$TITLE$"><a class="play"></a><img src="$SCREEN_URL$" width="$PRV_WIDTH$px" height="$PRV_HEIGHT$px"></div>
  <div class="stats"><div class="views"><?if($PLAYS$)?>$PLAYS$<?else?>0<?endif?></div><div class="comments"><a href="$ENTRY_PAGE$#comments"><?if($COMMENTS_NUM$)?>$COMMENTS_NUM$<?else?>0<?endif?></a></div> <div class="more"><a href="$ENTRY_URL$"></a></div></div>
</div>
<?endif?>

1. Increase page speed!

2. Speed is one of the important things of a website.

3. I'm using photo module without LightBox, and still the css and js appear in my pages.
Read google's recommendations, many of your js and css files are uncompressed.
