In addition to PHP, support for Ruby (and Rails) would be awesome!319 votes
Let’s see how many votes this gets!
If we are trying to pull PHP devs who work on Linux/Solaris in a corp environment support for ssh is a must. I need to be able to connect webmatrix to my remote systems. FTP is forbidden plain and simple. The fact that it is encouraged through an IDE is down right neglagent on MS part!191 votes
Thanks for the feedback. Our recommendation for secure publishing is to use the Web Deploy protocol, but you are right in that SSH/SFTP is used more widely.
Yes. We like this very much. More votes please.
I'm really want :)102 votes
Good idea! Let’s see how many people want this.
So people would use the HTTP Server of their choice like Apache or nginx.90 votes
This is an interesting idea; we’ll think about it for our next release!
In addition to the MySQL support, it would be great, if WebMatrix would support PostgreSQL databases too.88 votes
It would be nice to be able to easily exclude certain files when publishing, like for example web.config. But it could also be other kinds of files and folders (.git , .svn).85 votes
Good idea – rules for source control exclusion would likely be different, but I like the concept.
WebMatrix is missing some very useful intellisence.
By typing & it should offer a list of HTML special characters to be added.81 votes
It would be great if there was a Multi Monitor Support like in Visual Studio 2010.81 votes
Good idea! Let’s see how many votes we get.
WebMatrix is great and TypeScript intellisense would make it even better. Coloring is here, but without code completion it hardly can claim TypeScript support.62 votes
We’re looking into bringing the full experience to WebMatrix, but wanted to just start with syntax highlighting. If there’s enough interest, this is something we could surely do!

In Visual Studio 2010 When selecting a variable by the cursor, all presence of this variable is highlighted in the file. And when the we try to change a variable or function name, Visual Studio prompts the user to update the name of all matching variable in the file.
is there any possibility to add these two functions??

Native support or the possibility to expand the program functionality via plugins so third parties would develop a wrapper for those databases.52 votes
Actually, we currently do support MySQL databases in WebMatrix. In order for this to function, you need to either install an application that uses MySQL, like Wordpress, or use Web Platform Installer to install the MySQL connector manually.
Once those pieces are in place, you can go to the Databases workspace and connect to a MySQL database just like any other.
We’ll take this as a recommendation to add SQLite support; thanks!
Even if English chosen in Web PI the program use the system's language.51 votes
We’ve heard this feedback before – we will consider this for a future release.
I would like the option to save a site as a template so that it appears in the template page for new sites. For example I have loads of plugins and settings that I always install with Wordpress so this would allow me to save that as a template.49 votes
It would be good if for example i download WordPress, or Joomla or ... have a site that is made in WordPress already for Webmatrix to automatically converts it to WordPress project when i open it so the folders are locked, wordpress intelli sense and all other stuff. This isn't possible with current projects just when you install new one from gallery.48 votes

At least, between ISO-8859-1 and UTF-8, but every supported encoding by Windows is preferred44 votes
Interesting, let’s see how many others would use this feature!
WebMatrix currently supports deployment to MySQL databases that uses the standard 3306 port.
Even if you use a connection string including the "Port" variable, it is ignored and configuration proceeds using 3306.
It would be useful for people who use alternate ports for security purposes if we could deploy sites as currently this has to be worked around using alternate network configurations.44 votes
The webdeploy package we use from wordpress doesn include the port for the database connection string as a parameter that can be changed at publish time. This was an oversight, and we’re going to work to get this updated. In the interim, you can modify the port in wp-config.php, publish with the port set, and then switch back to your local MySQL port. We know this is less than ideal, and we’re looking into it.
It would be a good ides to add jslint as a part of the app42 votes
We would like to add this. Let’s get some votes!
if I write <link / then it's will change to <link/> (automatically close after / ) in v1. it's not worked in webmatrix 2 rc.42 votes
If there is enough interest, we can add this back
Ctrl+click on a method, a la Eclipse or Netbeans that leads to a method or variable declaration/implementation. But don't make the IDE slow!
Both Eclipse and Netbeans, or even Zend Studio, have the possibility to press Ctrl and click on a method/variable and this will pop-up a choice of files where this method/variable is defined/implemented.
It is really useful, but I think also one of the reasons why these consume so much memory and are so slow. If you can bring this feature without hurting performance, please do!40 votes
We like this idea too. Bring on the votes!
