  1. Categories: Ordering, Menus, and adding Pages

    We would like to see the following functionality added to the Category application in Kentico:
    1. Be able to Order and Sort the pages within the category application (Separate order from node order)
    2. Add multiple pages from the Category Application (A button to select pages)

    This would allow for the Category application to be used to create Ordered Menu's, that have items in more than one menu. Currently in Kentico the Page menu item (page type) allows for a page to be in one menu but not more than one. Using categories allows for a page to be in…

    • Strongly-typed Cached objects

      Kentico manages an internal cache that, in part, includes object types such as Users, Custom Tables, Documents, and many other types of objects.
      However, if you use methods like UserInfoProvider, CustomTableInfoProvider, or TreeProvider, there are no options to use these internal caches.

      If, instead, you use CacheHelper.GetItem, you can retrieve the cached versions of these objects, but in a separate data type that cannot be converted to the strongly-typed objects.

      This product idea is to update the API to allow us to retrieve the cached objects. This could be by updating the individual providers to deliver UserInfo, CustomTableItem, etc objects…

      • 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.

        • 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…

              • plain text email for email marketing templates and issues

                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.

                • 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…

                    • Update calendar control to customize the date display, year limit, like how we have in jquery.

                      In online form - calendar control object we can add customization in terms of date format, year range, etc like how we have customization feature in jQuery UI Calendar. this feature will be highly helpful rather than making updates to the core jQuery files.

                          • API method to remove all relationships

                            Remove all relationships entries given
                            - left node id and relationship name id
                            - left node id only (will remove ALL relationships tied to this node id)

                            Currently the only way to do this programmatically is to loop through every single entry, or write a custom stored procedure. It would be nice if this was encapsulated behind the scenes and complements the existing RemoveRelationship method. For example:
                            - RelationshipInfoProvider.RemoveRelationships(leftNodeId, relationshipNameId);
                            RelationshipInfoProvider.RemoveRelationships(leftNodeId)

                                  I'm working on a site that has some complicated web parts that are being converted to widgets. t is a very time consuming process to go through and select all the fields to be visible on the widget. It would be nice if you could select a bunch of fields to show as visible or not, or event just a make hide show all fields button.

                                  • 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…

                                    • Add a "User must change password on next login" checkbox to the User module

                                      Seems pretty straightforward. The part that might not be straightforward is that we have a group of users we manage externally and we need to have that group of users change password but the password isn't stored in Kentico but I can manage that part as long as there's a flag to check that I can reset. Yes, I could add it myself but this is a standard feature in any system that manages users.

                                      • Reporting: possibility to select file type (PDF, Excel) for subscriptions

                                        When I create a report in Kentico and I view the report I get the option to save it as a Excel/CSV, etc., but when I subscribe to the report I do not have an option to have the report attached to the e-mail as a Excel/CSV file instead of the data in the e-mail

                                        • Exclude from search: more flexible (no index, follow, etc.)

                                          I can exlude a page from being indexed by search engines by selecting 'Exclude from search'. I actually sends 'two signals' to seatch engine: do not index and do not follow links on this page as well.

                                          I would like to see that the two are seperately selectable:
                                          - No index
                                          - No follow
