  1. 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…

    • 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…

        • URLs in Newsletter

          DESCRIPTION:

          Settings / URLs and SEO / Redirect invalid case URLs to their correct versions

          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…

          • Resign macros by user/select user or identity to assign macro to

            During an upgrade you have to resign macros. It would be nice if you could resign all macros by a specific user or Identity. This way it would help prevent security issues. If there are macros that are bad from specific users you can look at them individually.

            If you are resigning macros and can select only specific macros from a user, it would be nice if you could then resign them back to that user or to a specific identity.

            • 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.

              • Page Temple Type Limitation

                Give the ability to limit page types based on a page template to reduce error from editors.

                When adding a new page template, developers can set specific page types to be used as children. - not only as scope. So when a new instance of this page is created anywhere, this limitation holds and not only where a scope is set up.

                • Repeater/Viewers Having Generic filters apply to datasource not just path

                  When a repeater or a Viewer is given a path you can add filters like where, order by, class names. You should be able to do that even if a datasource was provided. All the filters can easily be applied to a data source. It would also allow generic Datasources to be made for a page and then used for several items. This way it would help reduce calls to the DB.

                    • Storing Cache Data in Redis instead of Server Memory

                      It would be nice if you could have the cache stored in Redis cache. IT would help prevent the server memory from getting large similar to file storage. Also, if using a Web Farm it would provide a way to store the cache in a centralized location.

                        • 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…

                              We have a use case that requires a person to review edits and then accept or reject those edits as part of a workflow step. This doesn’t necessarily mean they should be able to modify the page. They should just have the read permission.

                              For example, someone in the Legal and Compliance department should be able to review the page and decide whether it is complicit with the law. They are not part of the creative team that comes up with the design and copy. They provide guidance, but do not dictate exactly how the page should look. It is…

                                • Implementation of Swagger UI in REST API to approach the need for documentation and easier integration

                                  I would love to see swagger being implemented in the REST API, as it is a quick and effective way of documenting the REST API and make it easier to test the calls with less trial and error on the user side.

                                  Its also enables clients to consume the rest api easier and integrate it with Visual Studio 2017 as it has a feature to add a "Rest API Client" which builds all the required models and classes for the calls and also builds a service to easily make the calls from any .net project.

                                    • Customize form builder default layout

                                      By default, Kentico generates a Label, Value, and Validation columns. Often this creates rather nasty validation issues when displayed. Would be great to have a way to customize the default layout the form generator creates to use a separate row for validation.

                                          With Microsoft removing BYOL support in Amazon AWS running in any other cloud platform (other than Azure) can be extremely costly due to Microsoft SQL licensing. Please Kentico break the MSSQL chains, there's no technical reason to be attached to it.
