Project III: Feature enhancement

Project Description

Cookies management

  • Create a cookie management system (component / plugin) in Joomla 4 to manage cookies as required by GDPR and other privacy regulations.

Improve Menu List view (Menu Items)

  • Add information of the selected menu item (like article title and id, category title and id) to the menu overview list and link it directly to the items. Categories receive a link to the category item as well as to the list of child items.

It should be taken care for performance, so e.g. information should be visible on request.

  • Placing modules on a page (in the menu item form) is currently tedious. Ability to change the module menu assignment in the menu item.

Improve Content

  • Remove the view featured and integrate it in the current article list. Take care of the featured ordering.

Improve the incorporation of modules in the Articles-Edit-View

  • The function to insert modules in an article will be supplemented with the function to create and edit Modules in the Article-Edit-View.

Knowledge Prerequisite

  • Must have: PHP, XML, CSS, JS
  • Nice to have: Joomla MVC, Bootstrap 4
