  1. timezone display on admin site

    Administration site does not display correct time (as set in timezone settings) except few places like Pages and Reports.

    This must work across the board.
    For example EventLog and Users last login timestamps are useless without being converted to site's timezone.

    • Access to global modules for non global administrators

      Can you please allow application of UI Permissions to global modules so they can be accessed by non global administrator users? A typical use case - an editor periodically creates a new website (there is an unlimited website licence) from pre developed website templates. They need access to the Sites App, but they cannot get it unless they are made global administrators, which is against security practices.

      • When you mark an A/B test variant as a winner the system automatically uses that page for visitors going foward.

        Today you need to manually choose a winner and then manually make the design changes on the page. It would be nice if the system automatically used the winning page for all visitors moving forward.

        • Allow screen lock to work with custom authentication logic

          When creating a custom authentication module as described in the docs here: https://docs.kentico.com/k11/custom-development/handling-global-events/handling-custom-external-authentication
          the screenlock feature does not make raise the "SecurityEvents.Authenticate.Execute" event and thus you cannot unlock the window without a full refresh, which can take you away from the view you were on at the time.

          I'd say the lack of this feature makes the implementation of custom authentication incomplete.

          • Better error message for invalid license in MVC sites

            When creating an MVC project and using an invalid or expired license, the mvc application is showing a 503.0 error. There should be a friendly message to guide you to look at the Event Log application. Also, the message in the log should be in Error state instead of Warning to really catch your eyes. An invalid or expired license is preventing the application from running, so for example, if we have cron jobs that look for error types and send emails, we won't catch that error in production if the filter is for Error only.

            • Media Library search of file title and file description

              When keyword searching a media library, the search only searches the file name. It would be very helpful to have the search also look at the file title and file description fields that can be set on the file.

              • Issue with deleting linked pages

                For normal content, we can delete a page to remove it from the content tree, for that market. However, if we delete a page that has linked child pages, the linked pages disappear for all markets. We need to prevent this from happening. Maybe a warning that there is a linked content in the folder and an “are you sure you want to remove it from all cultures” dialog you have to respond to?

                • Automatically generate MVC View/Controller/Repository boilerplate

                  Currently, Kentico will allow automatic generation of the Model based on page types.
                  However, in order to match Kentico's existing structure, you also have to add a View, a Controller, and an Interface and implementation class for the Repository (The latter not strictly necessary, but it is if you want to match Kentico's internal classes' structure.)
                  Obviously the View and Controller will need to be customized, but a lot of it (the files themselves, the class definitions and using statements, the constructors for the Controller, etc) are going to be boilerplate.
                  Ideally, this would be via something like a zip…

                  • ContactJobTitle and ContactCompanyName should be increased to 255 character length.

                    ContactJobTitle and ContactCompanyName should be increased to 255 character length. We have it configured to have user's information passed to the Contact Management database when they register but 100 characters for Company Name and 50 for Title are too small. They should be atleast 255.

                    • Better authoring experience of custom tables

                      It's really hard to edit, search, filter, sort data for custom tables. It would be nice to have at least a jquery datatable like experience out of the box.

                      • Preview in New Tab

                        Preview mode shows the site in a smaller window. I generally like to open a new tab to see the rendered page. Editors with limited exposure to Kentico don't always know that they can do this.
                        I thought it would be a good option to add the extra option to open a page in a new tab (via a rollover option that appears under the Preview button perhaps?).
                        This accomplishes 2 things: It provides a full site view of a page, and secondly, it provides the full display of the url that can be copied. I would find it useful…

                          When resizing an image in the image editor set the height and width properties as attributes not with the style tag. when you set the height and width it makes it difficult to make the image resize automatically with the browser.

                            • Image Attachment Variant Selector

                              Would be very cool if I could select a specific variant generated for an image attachment in the editable image component.

                              Currently only the root attachment (no variants) are selectable.

                              Content editors often can't add a simple "&variant=myvariant" to the image link, because they are not doing "programming" :-)

                                DESCRIPTION:

                                There is an option "Redirect all requests to lower case URLs"

                                This is the best setting for SEO and it is fine until now.

                                PROBLEM is with newsletters. It would be fine to create an exception for them. E.g. checkbox DO NOT USE THIS RULE IN NEWSLETTERS

                                If you put the link (e.g. Google Sheet, that uses lower and upper cases) into newsletter´s body, all characters in the link are redirect to lower case.

                                All is fine in Draft, but if you send it to…

                                • Add Progress on Continuous Integration Restore

                                  If you are processing a very large set of CI items, the CI restore looks like it's just sitting there, taking upwards of an hour depending on how large your data set it. It would be great to have a % progresses indication so we don't think it's just frozen and cancel it.

                                  As it stands, can't use CI for sites with 10's of thousands of data objects.

                                    For example: I have PDFs/Images for a product that I need to pick multiple items to show in a side bar or carousel. I could use multiple attachments but doing so will require constantly uploading and items may become outdated which becomes an issue if there is multple pages that have these resources.

                                    • Increase the size of the "Position" and "Title" contact fields in the Contact database

                                      We capture these fields from fields in registration but they tend to be way longer than the current definitions in the Contact Management system. When we pass this information from registration to the contact database it gets lost if it exceeds the length. We have to manually add it back in and let it get truncated. Would be good if both were 255 that way we can not lose good data on our users and their activities.

                                      • Fix hyperlink bug & inability to add a photo caption in CKEditor

                                        The university I work at uses recently updated to v10 and shortly after we noticed that after about 5 minutes of working in kentico, you can no longer add in hyperlinks. The window either loads forever or it loads a blank page making it impossible to add the link without using a silly work around - links should be a straightforward process.

                                        Lukas from Kentico told us "I discussed this with our Product Owner - unfortunately CKEditor will not be upgraded in Kentico 12 and currently there are no plans for upgrading it in any feature version. I am really…

                                        • setting to default macro to not be signed

                                          The setting would have the macros not be signed so they would run as the Public user. This could be an issue if working with work flows or unpublished content, as a public user would not have access to that. But for the majority of macros I think the public user would have access and it would be better security as it is being all ran as a public user.
