Im making an open-source and free cms (Content Management System).. say something you can call the next Wordpress,Joomla,Drupal etc.. so now im collecting wishlist from people..
Do you have anything in mind which you would like to see in a cms but its not available yet in the market's existing cms's(like wordpress,joomla etc).. if your answer to this question is yes then send me your wishlist.it will be added in my upcoming cms soon..
CMS will be both in PHP/MYSQL(for all cpanel/linux geeks) and ASP.NET/SQLServer(for those attached with plesk/microsoft windows servers) versions.. so you can choose whichever one you want!
its a full cms which can do blogging as well as website management and it will be easy to use too.. say it will be easier than wordpress to use and you can get joomla & drupal like power in that! but i need some suggestions like what things you want and you dont see that thing or feature in other cms.. to do a particular task to to make that task easier. looking for your reply.. thanks!

#How about an inbuilt option where the admin decides whether to keep his comments dofollow or nofollow?
#Inbuilt messaging system.
#Inbuilt optional forum.
#Polls, Quizzes, surveys.
#User gets the choice of selecting the URL structure.
#In-built option for adding Meta tags for every post/page.
#In-built ad rotator system.
#In-built option for tracking visitors like G analytics.
I'll give you an example of the benefit of this :
When i consider trying out a new CMS for my new domain, i would never consider initial plugins. I would compare say 5 different CMSs with their DEFAULT features.
Joomla has Polls as default and no plugin is required, just add your question, select options and your done. Its easy.
However, Wordpress has by default no polls. To have a polling system in your WP blog you need plugins, out of these wp-polls is the most used. However this plugin is not too reliable, you can have it just once in a page, you need to add a piece of code in your footer for it to work, else it doesn't.
There are other third-party polls but they take time to load and reduce the site's speed and you need to depend on the server of that third-party site for your plugin to actually show up.
So, the conclusion here is : Joomla get 1 extra point for this while Wordpress doesn't.
Similarly, Wordpress gets an extra point for 'a better post editor' while Joomla doesn't.
So all i want to say is, add features most used by people as default in your cms. It would be great, the only downside of this is :
1) They will require some extra coding (but that's fine right?).
2) Some extra server space (Who cares about this )
no problem.. they all will be implemented in default..
plus ive added shopping cart & affiliate management too in default core program.. so they wont need to hunt for plugins
i'll let you know when the cms is ready for testing..!
