=========================== INTERLUDE ===============================
You can see here a lot of people that genuinely want to help and this is great.
This is one of the big reason that make me choose Joomla over other CMS, the other BIG reason is that Joomla is simply the better choice of CMS for any kind and size of web site in 2019.
I work (but not produce sites even if asked... Only the best for my clients, sorry!..)
with WP and let me tell you that this is only for great friends stuck with it that I do so.
The truth is simple, producing & maintaining PROFESSIONALLY a WP site is simply nightmarish and their community and extensions developers are far (as Pluto is...)
to be as helpful and/or professional. Also, a structure flexible as a brick and top rated extensions that bring down your site in seconds are the norm on the WP side my friends.
What will be great, is if Joomla will find a way to tap into that positive force and all the knowledge of the community behind it.
Github is for coders and as we see here, to make an even better CMS, you need more than just coders, you need people that develop Joomla websites as their main work and all the other type of users that cumulate tons of knowledge & experience in design, UI/UX and that can bring great ideas to the table.
When Joomla will start to tap in this force, ... Well the Force will be with it and we will beat the Dark Side...
Joke apart, a smart use of tools that are already implanted in Joomla, like this forum and other simple tools like Polling, voting and talking about new features, improvement, interface, ergonomic, etc. will really help this CMS and probably bring it back to the top level of the podium, where it should be.
So far, as we see in this post, not to much connexion or tangible & useful connexions and actions are made on that interface problems between Joomla Devs and the community.
Complaints and approval also design ideas are trow in this post but the train is going is way oblivious of the passengers talking between them.
Joomla need to develop an accessible tool or space in this forum (or else...) that will bring the community and the developers together to clarify the vision of both and also collect and prioritize ideas and join forces to better Our CMS.
Coming back to the main subject of this post “The administration interface” can the Dev's tell us what they think?, where are we going? and how we can help!
