  1. Allow for non global admins to access CSS Stylesheets

    We have situations where we need to allow designers to be able to update the css. However, we do not want to give the global administrator access. I recommend that Kentico allow for more granular permissions on the CSS Stylesheets module.

    • Full Widget Property Inheritance

      We use Widgets for almost every content in our pages.
      Every Widget has the same “BASE” fields to get common settings working in every Widget an editor could use. This fields are e.g. “Headline Text”, “Headline Type”, “Show Headline”, “Show On Mobile Device”, “Background Color”, etc. Those fields are too complex to get this working with a Wep Part container.

      Currenty, I used the “Clone” method to clone from a base Web Part. But this is very awful if the customer wishes to have a new common field in all Widgets. In this case I am forced to add the…

        • Remove Default Bootstrap Classes

          When using many of Kentico's default controls (CMSButton, CMSTextBox etc), standard CSS classes are being added by default (btn, form-control etc).

          What I'd like to see is some way of overriding this because the front end we make for our websites is created before the Kentico site is made. Therefore we often have to override the CSS styles that have been set when the bootstrap classes outputted by Kentico conflict with the styles we have front ended. For example, a page might not have been front ended with a "btn" class on a button, but when Kentico adds it, it…

            • Truly clean minimum install

              It would be awesome to have the ability to install a minimum install WITHOUT the media libraries, templates, page types, etc. that are in the installer for the starter sites. These files, etc. should only be included if you select the starter site that needs them.

              • Need better order adjustment of widgets in widget zones

                When using widgets and widget zones to create panel style layouts, the drag and drop method of ordering widgets becomes very difficult, especially when having to edit an existing page layout. It would be nice if there were move up,move down, move to top, move to bottom options (just like on web part zones). Also it would be nice to have a button or checkbox to limit the widget size when trying to reorder to make it easier to reorganize large panel style widgets (much like the checkbox to remove webpart content in the design tab).

                Currently trying to drag…

                • Show name of the sender instead of email address when sending email via API

                  It would be great if there would be a possibility to show name of the sender in the FromEmail field when sending emails via API.

                  • Access current search item as C# object in transformation

                    I'd like to access the current search item (page) in a transformation via C#.

                    Unfortunately the transformation methods and C# code don't mix well in a transformation. For example I cannot store values from a transformation logic in a variable. This leads to horribly complex lines of code in the transformation.

                    Also when I need custom logic I have to write a custom transformation method in an extra file. It takes over 1 minute to load a page each time I make even the smallest change in the custom transformation method.

                    Transformations are among the worst things to handle for…

                    • Web Part and Widget Scope

                      It would be very helpfull if the web part or widget list could be filtered by the page type and/or the page template where it should be added to.

                      Currently I have to explain our content editors which of the web parts or widgets are designed to be placed in which page types or page templates.

                        • Copy page dialog search

                          Copy page dialog is not working well on site with large content.
                          Same applies when creating a linked page.

                          The issue is that it takes a lot of clicks to navigate to the target page.

                          A simple solution which would improve this, is to add the "Show all levels" checkbox, just like you do on the Listings search tab.

                              Regular email templates support plain text alternatives (multi-part mime types); however email marketing templates and issues do not. This is an essential feature of any email marketing system because it significantly enhances the non-spam signature of a message; our clients expect this to be available.

                                • Enable Kentico Admins to preview without publishing page

                                  It would be really useful if there could be a 'preview to draft' mode so that admins can preview their changes before publishing to live. The existing preview mode shows you how the page will look on the front end, but the content is published at this stage. This often confuses users.

                                  I understand we can do this with workflow but this would be great as a basic function.

                                  Thanks!

                                  • Searching/filtering variants of products

                                    After hotfix 9.0.30 Kentico remove the seach functionality for variants throught the Product app due to "Filtering products and searching for them in the Products application caused a database query timeout on sites containing thousands of products." and by this time clients can' search for them in the ADMIN UI. It only concerns the biggest ecommerces.

                                    There should be a new setting key for this:
                                    Search through variants in Products Tab - Boolean

                                    Which will be available on ecommerce settings tab. It will turn on/off special where condition for searching/filtering for the variants throught Products app

                                    • Provide page builder like visual composer to beat wordpress for ever !

                                      If you want to take most market share with kentico, you must provide simple ways to edit and create themes. Why wordpress grow more and more?? because everyday, you can see developer create a plugin to let people like me that don't know anything about webdesign, to create page and edit theme for my needs. Kentico is fantastic, without a doubt. but still not as easy as wordpress. Just like a drupal that very powerful than wordpress, but because of very bad user friendly, people still want to use wordpress. I love kentico but I can't use it.

                                      • Use Mailed-by and via property in email header for bounces

                                        When using bounced email monitoring the from email need to be the email at which bounces are sent to.

                                        Could the mailed-by and via property in the email header be used instead.

                                        So that all our clients could share a mail server for email campaigns

                                        • User subscription on reports should not be synced with staging module

                                          A report is an object that sometimes requires updates. These updates are usually done on a staging server and then synchronized into production.

                                          User subscriptions to reports are usually done on the production server.

                                          However, if you synchronize a report from staging to production, you also sync all subscribed users.

                                          This makes it in fact impossible to have a) reports synced or b) users subscribe on the production platform.

                                          As in the newsletters subscriptions and reports should be synced seperatly.
