  1. Site wide preview function that takes account of the date

    The existing preview function shows a page as it will appear when scheduled content goes live. As such it takes no real account of the system calendar.
    The idea therefore is to allow the user to alter a calendar offset, such that he or she can see the site as it will appear at some future date. The user would be able to role the calendar forwards to view scheduled changes as time elapses over a period in the future.
    The essential difference between this and the preview mode is that it would show the various phases, so for example…

    • auto-select the uploaded package

      When i update a new package to import, it would be nice if the new package will be selected automatically instead of having to selected it manually. (So many time i click « next » with the wrong package)

      • Update Kentico's Obsolete GeoLocation Integration to Support GeoLite2

        Kentico currently uses MaxMind's legacy GeoLite City for their free implementation for geolocation. Kentico also currently supports GeoIP Organization as a paid form of geolocation for more accurate results. Both of these are no longer supported by MaxMind and are no longer being updated. On January 2, 2019, these will be removed from their site entirely. Kentico should consider updating their integration to MaxMind's newer GeoLite2 and GeoIP2 otherwise all of their users will have no way to update their geolocation database. Over time, these databases will become less and less accurate until the built in geolocation in Kentico is…

        • Kentico MVC Content Only Pages URL Pattern Field Added into New Page Type Wizard

          The New Page Type Wizard asks in Step 2 if you are creating Content Only Page Types. If you check this checkbox, nothing else changes in the Wizard for the remaining 5 steps and it is very easy to forget that the URL Pattern field of the Content Only Page Type should be filled in for MVC sites.

          Suggestion: If the Content Only Page Type is checked in step 2, dynamically show a field that allows you to enter in the URL pattern right then and there (as an optional field).

            • Be able to mass upload subscribers to a newsletter without having to put them in a contact group.

              Be able to mass upload a list of subscribers to a newsletter without having to put them in a contact group. For example, if I collect email opt-ins at an event I simply want to add them to my newsletter recipients. The only way to do that today is through a contact group. Once they are in a contact group I am not able to see individual opt in/out status.

              • Add functionality to use Shift to select multiple items in a list

                On a page like Staging, when I want to select 10 items out of a 20 item list, I can't click the first item and then use the Shift button on my keyboard and click the last item to select them all at once.

                Instead I have to click 10 times to individually select each one.

                You do have the option of clicking the box to select the entire list, but if I want to highlight one chunk out of a big list, I can't do it quickly or efficiently without clicking every single individual item.

                This is a very…

                • email priority

                  Kentico adds to email from email marketing this properties:
                  X-Priority: 5
                  Priority: non-urgent
                  Importance: low

                  But I can not influence it. Please, add settings for it.

                  • Thumbnail view for attachment fields containing image variants

                    I would like to have a thumbnail view mode for attachment fields. We use this field type to store gallery images with concerned image versions. The customer likes to have a thumbnail view mode like it is available for folders containing multiple cms.file pages.

                    In the "attachment" field type, only a list view is possible. The image is shown only on hover.

                    In addition it would be nice to have an option to hide image variants because the content editors do not need this information.

                    Thx, Elmar

                    • MVC on Free Edition

                      As of version 10 in Kentico, if a Developer wants to host a website built using Kentico CMS using MVC, they need to purchase a license for it.

                      This is a barrier for developers to enter and try out Kentico CMS with MVC. Since Kentico recently announced (at the Roadshows) that MVC would become the primary development model in the next version, it makes sense to provide access to this model for new developers in that version. However as it stands, they will be forced to use one of the other, non-preferred development models (Portal, ASPX or Mixed) to evaluate…

                        Hello!

                        Thanks for your complete explanation of the need for MVC in the Free edition.

                        This seems to be a more common requirement now when we look into MVC further and we are evaluating this change right now.

                        I will keep you updated about the progress as we come closer to the next beta.

                          When using the Preview mode in the Email builder, there's no possibility to quickly go back to editing the email. The only way is to go back to Email marketing feature, filter the Newsletter and open the email issue again.

                            Allow for HTTP POST of a form that just goes to an external site. I don't want to have to write any C# or bypass everything with JQUERY or other library. I just want to put method="POST" and an action="externalurl" to send my form data to.

                            e.g. Salesforce Web-to-Case, Web-to-Lead other third party widget that I want to embed in my site that has nothing to do with Kentico at all.

                            Sometimes, you just don't want to Forms from Kentico as the information is going to SurveyGizmo or something else. Just a simple post to a 3rd party URL where…

                            • Make it possible to use an existing Resource String in the form builder

                              If you want to use an existing resource string in for example a label in the form builder, the option is disabled. There is no setting or option to enable it for any role. This looks like a bug, since the option is build in there, but disabled. This is weird and should be fixed a.s.a.p.

                                  Kentico default Media library supports " URLs of resized images in media libraries" like below
                                  Permanent URL*
                                  (e.g., /Kentico/getmedia/ed0be744-9e70-4056-8c7d-91fc5087813c/Panda.jpg.aspx?width=100&height=66)

                                  We lost the above feature when we will integrate Media Library with third party storage location like AWS S3 and Azure blob

                                  Can you provide this default feature when images stored images in S3 and Azure blob?

                                  • Ability to seperate email based on type to different SMTP servers

                                    Sending all mail generated from Kentico through the same (set of) SMTP server(s) is a bad idea. Why? If marketing emails result in service being throttled by the SMTP service (it happens), it also slows down delivery of transactional email.

                                    Perhaps this could be set up to send to different sub-domains e.g. mktg.example.com & store.example.com.

                                    Or email templates have a tag that is used for determining which service they get forward to.

                                    Either way, this can help to seperate not only issues when they arise, but also reporting etc.

                                    If Kentico is serious about email marketing, I think this is…

                                    • Sort smart search by document name

                                      Did you know that DocumentName and Document title are not currently allowed as sorting options by default on smart search? Kentico Support's official recommendation is to go into the Modules and set the Pages module as customizable, to save document name and title as fields outside of _content (thus letting them be sortable)

                                      Title should be able to be one of the default sortable items without having to customize the site.
