ShinyCMS TODO
=============
An incomplete list of features and functionality that we'd like to add to
ShinyCMS in the future (short or long term).
[ Key: * is (more or less) working, + isn't finished, - isn't started ]
+ TESTS
- There is huge scope for improvement in the test suite
* Top-level / site-wide features
- Open Graph metatags: http://ogp.me
- Rewrite tasks to read config and access db model directly rather than
loading the whole Catalyst app into memory
+ Redo existing pagination to use Data::Page instead
+ (Shop already has this, Blog/News/etc need it)
+ Improve error-handling (coverage and UX)
- Catch 500 error when admin adds user with duplicate username
- Catch 500 error when admin adds page with duplicate url_name
- Refactor larger controllers into sub-controllers (e.g. Shop::Item)
- Refactor CmsPage, ShopItem (etc?) to inherit from a BaseObject ??
(which has BaseObjectElements)
+ Nicer test data for blog posts, news items, pages, etc
+ Use excerpts from Little Brother (CC-licensed)
- Check to see if anyone has created in-universe websites we can use
- Background task to delete stale registration/reconnect codes (etc?)
- Add config options to enable/disable each top-level feature
- Use that to turn on/off menu items
- Better handling of user-uploaded images (profile pics, event logos, etc)
* HTML filtering for user-submitted content
- Per-site configuration of allowed tag+attribute list
- Move back-end menus into controller template folders?
- Automatically find and render admin menus for each controller
- Need some way to configure order
* Search
+ Add search method to each controller, combine results
+ Build links in controllers, not in template
- Or in model?
- Automatically find and call search method for each controller
- Move search methods into model rather than controller?
* Tags
+ For all resources - news item, gallery image, shop product, etc
- Ensure graceful degradation anywhere JavaScript is used
- jQuery date-pickers
- WYSIWYG editor
- Look at ways to make Model fatter and Controllers thinner
- Support for multiple sites from one instance
* CMS Pages
- Better handling of sections - current compulsory 2-level URLs are non-ideal
- Access-controlled sections/pages (intranet / members-only areas)
- Better interface for setting section and page order
- Multiple-select widget with up/down buttons? Drag n drop?
- Handle page template changes - add any extra elements needed
- Allow page admin to delete page elements
- Allow template admin to edit template element names
- Allow template/page admins to edit element order
- Per-section and/or per-page edit/admin ACLs
- Full reversion history for page edits
- Clone page
- Clone template
- Configurable redirects? ( /pages/is/old => /pages/is/new )
- Screenshot of page layout on edit page, changing with template selection
- For page add/edit, it would be nice to read in the page-element names
and types from the template file instead of from the database
- Change HTML editor to NicEdit ?
- Inline editing ??

- Disable form
+ Newsletters

- 'Remember me' - stay logged in across sessions
- Monitor for repeated login or reconnect failures, might be an attack
- Block access to that IP address?

- Extend and refine role system into ACL system
- Roles should be fully editable, giving fine-grain control of their
capabilities (which relate to CMS features, e.g. 'edit page')
