Building off of this discussion, it would be extremely helpful if there was automatic backup of db files AND site template files, either via a module or built into processwire. Backups could be scheduled and work in the background.

The wordpress plugin BackWPup is superb at this. A user can automatically backup to several different places: the current server, another server, dropbox, by email, amazon services, etc.

I will check out that WordPress plugin you mentioned. I think this is a good idea for a ProcessWire module, but probably not something for the core modules just because this seems like more a function of hosting, backup utilities, cron jobs, rsync, etc. The same tools we've always used for this. But one can never have too many backups ... more backups and ways to backup are always good (so long as they are secure).

      Just one of those things I often find myself wishing for:
      Could a future update add a "Siblings" list tab (or make a "Children & Siblings" combined tab) to /page/edit/?
      Save + Next is a godsend, but in many cases I need to jump around instead of cycling through. Sometimes I just want to reference how I titled other pages under one parent to keep the naming consistent. Other times I'm deep enough in my page tree that it's a half-dozen or so more clicks than I'd like to get back to where I was.
      So far my workaround is to right-click on the parent's name in the Breadcrumb nav, and open the page tree in a new tab. But when editing a site often has me opening ten or more browser tabs at a time, each one I can cut out is a blessing. 
      Thanks for your consideration!

      Hello,
      just another wish on my list: Multiple instances for same field. E.g. I have got a simple "text" field that's just a CKEdtior textarea. If I want to use two or more text fields, I need to dublicate the "text" field to something like "text2".
      I know that every field is unique because of the database structure behind. Is is still possible to make something like this for this problem? Maybe save everything to same table in database but somehow add a "instanceNumber" field that separates "text1" from "text2"?
      It isn't a big thing, because cloning is easy. I really like to keep redundancies low and cloning fields isn't that great, so I share this wishlist. Maybe there is some way and I don't know about it, so let me know

      Hello,
      One thing that I really would like is a group fieldtype. This group fieldtype is just for grouping other fieldtypes. E.g.:
      "dates" as group field has "dateStart" and "dateEnd" (both datetime fieldtype) as fields.
      This would be a great feature!
      Is something like this currently possible?

      It occurred to me that a good addition to the forums would be some way for PW users to indicate support for a module idea. Similar to the Wishlist subforum but for functionality that belongs in a module rather than in the core.
      I'm thinking mainly of commercial modules, although if someone wanted to take up a module request and release it freely that would be cool.
      So users could propose a module idea, then others would vote for it (using likes or some special voting option) so that a vote means "I'd buy that", with the expectation of pricing in the general ballpark of Ryan's pro modules and Apeisa's PadLoper.
      As a beginner-intermediate developer I'm really enjoying working with PW and learning as I go - the API is so intuitive that I've been able to build my own solutions to things that in another CMS I would have been reliant on someone else's module to achieve. But there are things that I know are beyond my current skills, and for those things I look to third-party modules. My clients are non-profits and small businesses so I'm never likely to have the budget to commission a custom module alone. But there might be other PW users out there with similar needs and maybe that demand would make it worthwhile for an experienced developer to take on a proposal and release it as a commercial module. Currently there isn't a way to measure the demand for modules apart from occasional forum posts like "Is there a module that...?"
      Any thoughts on this?
      Here's a module request to start off with:
      I would be happy to buy a full-featured event calendar module. I've searched the module directory and the forums and Lindquist's module is the most feature-rich I've seen, but it's in an alpha proof-of-concept state and some important functions aren't implemented. Features I would be looking for are:
      Calendar grid interface in admin, allowing for easy addition and editing of events. (Nice but non-essential) Week and day views in admin, in addition to month view, with drag editing for event date and duration (I'm dreaming of something awesome like the dhtmlxScheduler interface or Fullcalendar interface). Although drag operations would really need an undo to correct accidental edits, so this may be more trouble than it's worth. Events are edited in a modal window, to avoid losing one's place in the calendar. Recurring events, with user-friendly selection of recurrence options. The ability to individually edit or remove an event that is a child of a recurring event (i.e. make an exception for that individual event). (Nice but non-essential) A couple of out-of-the-box minimal rendering options for the frontend (read-only calendar view, list view). This is the kind of module I need frequently. I've been lucky that I haven't had a client request a full event calendar since I've been using PW, but it's only a matter of time. I'm sure there are other PW users who need this and who would, like me, be happy to pay for such a module.

      If not that, at least display the latest specified compatible version in the list view.
      I think this would be a nice and helpful feature to have, especially for some module categories (such as Admin Themes) with few listed as being compatible with 2.5... For now you have to open each module's page individually to view this info, and not only that but that brings up another minor annoyance in my experience with the modules directory, which is that trying to open a module's page in a new tab actually loads it in the source tab as well. I mean, the site does load swiftly, thank you guys for upholding such quality standards... but I still don't see why that's even desirable to do... You all know what I'm talking about right? 
      I wish processwire.com was open source, especially to see how the newsletter system is done.
