Suggestion regarding intro and full article images

Postby KathrynMPU » Fri Feb 09, 2018 11:59 am

To Whom It May Concern,
I just have one suggestion. Right now, in joomla 3.8.x there's no setting to make the intro and full article images required. May I suggest that for each category, administrators could have the ability to make those images required? For example, if I have category 1 and category 2. If I save an article to category 1, I get a message that the intro image is required, but, if I save it to category 2, that image is not required?

I suggest this because, in my experience, there are extensions to create slide shows of articles (using either the intro image or the full article image) on the home page, and you can select the categories of articles you want displayed. It stands to reason, then, that the administrator might want to make sure that when users add articles to those specific categories, those image fields are required to be filled out, but, not necessarily for all categories. Right now, unless I go and edit the xml file, I can't make it required at all (and that change always gets overridden when I update the joomla core files).
