  1. Add scrollWheel property to Google Maps (and more if possible)

    The current Google Maps webpart does its thing, but does not include all the possible options you set onto a google-map.
    Most of the options currently available are the options you'll generally use, but it is missing one. An that is a very important one imo, and that option is: scrollWheel.

    The scrollWheel option allow you to enable/disable zooming with the scrollwheel of your mouse. This is a boolean and defaults to true.
    Nowadays, it is more common to have map element on a page that is so big that it can span the entire page. If you, in such…

    • ability to post an HTTP webhook for a Bizform form submission

      I would like to propose a new Bizform feature: the ability to configure an HTTP URL with each Bizform. Once configured, any form submission to this form, would trigger an HTTP Webhook POST to the specified URL. The payload of the HTTP POST would be – ideally in JSON – the form submission data.

      One of the best Wordpress form plugins – GravityForms – does this already. See https://gravityflow.io/gravity-forms-webhooks/. The UI screenshot in the article is helpful in understanding what configuration options there might be. Ideally the implementation would use a queue, much like the mail queue, to allow…

      • Visual e-mail builder for marketers to replace current e-mail template editing experience

        Make a visual drag and drop editor for e-mail templates that could be used for static issues, dynamic issues, marketing automation communications, and on-line form auto-responders (basically all points of e-mail in EMS). The key to this would be to now to have to have content admins and marketers know macros to build e-mail templates.

        It seems like the parts of the on-line form builder or widgets could be re-used to create this solution.

        I firmly believe that this is needed for EMS to complete with other marketing automation platforms.

        I know this has been looked at before and declined,…

        • Provide analytics on form autoresponder emails

          When someone fills out a form and an autoresponder is sent, we have no visibility into open rates, click rates, unsubscribes, etc. In a recent campaign, we were unable to provide relevant stats to our client. Email autoresponders consistently show the highest engagement rates of any email campaigns. Tracking the results of these autoresponders is a must-have! Thanks - Eric

          • Copied pages should initially be in edit state

            Copying a published document should not make the copied version publish, as you should be able to decide whether that copy should be published or not.

            At the moment that document becomes published by default, there should be a way for this not to be done automatically.

            It should go to a draft state, therefore unpublished if using workflow.

            • A method to get the URL of media file thumbnails in given sizes

              On the MediaFileInfoProvider or MediaFileHelper there should be a method to get the URL for a resized thumbnail of a given media file.

              This method should take the normal maxSideSize, width and height parameters and return a URL to the relevant thumbnail (ensuring it is created if it doesn't exist) on whatever storage system the site is using.

              If the site is using a CDN then the URL returned should be on that CDN's endpoint.

                  Hello,
                  Hotfix 10.0.3 does fix this issues for our built-in gateways.

                  Hotfix description:
                  Due to a misconfiguration of the system’s CSRF protection, an error occurred when verifying payments that were made using the PayPal payment gateway. As a result, the payment was aborted and the order not marked as paid.

                  Is this the issue you are dealing with?

                  Kind Regards
                  Michal Kadak

                • Wrap checkbox/radio input and label inside HTML element to control line-break issues

                  Creating a Kentico form with a checkbox/radio button list with the "Repeat direction:" set to horizontal renders a series of checkbox/radio form controls and labels with no <br> tags. However, because there is no HTMl element that groups each control/label pair, the label will drop to a new line while the checkbox stays.

                  By wrapping control/label pair inside an HTML element, such as span (even with no CSS class applied), gives us the ability to control this line-break issue with CSS.

                  Current output example (stripping all id, values and for attributes):

                  <span iclass="radio radio-list-horizontal">
                  <input type="radio" value="Phone"><label>Phone</label>
                  <input type="radio" value="Email"><label>Email</label> …

                    • Support custom properties in SearchContext.CurrentSearchResults

                      When developing a custom index you currently are limited in what you can store in the index. Only the default search fields are supported, but you cannot add your own custom columns to the DataRow object in SearchContext.CurrentSearchResults.

                      Adding custom columns to the DataRow would be a welcome feature that is in line with way Kentico wants to approach MVC. Sometimes a simple 'Pages' index is just not enough to display data and you want to avoid doing database queries to gather more information about the search results.

                      Currently for custom indexes, the DataRow is being created hardcoded (see attached…

                      • Restrict currencies by country

                        Can we have the ability to limit currencies by the customers country?

                        For example a customer in the UK should be restricted to ordering in GBP whilst those in a different EU country can order in Euro's or US Dollars.

                              Widget based content personalization should be persisted when you copy a page, or create a new culture version and opt to copy for an existing version, or when using the translate functionality. Currently we have to do a lot of manual work to recreate the content personalization across all the languages our site supports.

                                The current single path selector in the translation app leaves much to be desired. You have to create two exports to do a section of the site (one for the parent page, and then one for its children).

                                Adding the ability to select a node and its children, or specify multiple paths, or even choose multiple ad-hoc pages would make it less cumbersome.

                                • OpenID Connect Support

                                  While Kentico does support OpenID, "OpenID Connect" performs many of the same tasks but does so in a way that is standardized and API-friendly.

                                  We have centralized authentication across numerous sites (both internal and external) using OpenID Connect and our Kentico site is the one lone holdout due to lack of support.

                                  • Update default dashboard and integrate "My Desk" functionality (dashboard widgets)

                                    From my point of view, it would be a great improvement if we can integrate report functionality on the general dashboard in the form of bigger tiles or maybe a widget area next to it.

                                    • Product Attribute Price Adjustment as percentage

                                      Currently you can speicfy a price adjustment as a fixed amount in the Main Currency. I'd like to see the ability to set the price adjusment as a percentage of the Product Price.

                                      I'm not sure of all the scenario's that this will be suitable to, but I have been asked for this for a clothing store which wants to add a percentile based amount to larger sizes.

                                        Hello,

                                        This looks like an unusual scenario. Have you considered a customization?
                                        I will wait if there are more supporters for this idea. However, It sounds like a rare case.

                                        thank you

                                        Kind Regards
                                        Michal Kadak

                                      • Form Builder, auto create new field name use label field

                                        I find that a lot's of client would like to use form builder feature. However, it is not good at back end table that the field name (table attribute name) is the control name that is hard to understand what is the field regarding to what kind of data. I suggest to auto generate with label, which is like create new object, we only need to enter display name and the code name / class name will auto created without space or invalid characters.

                                        • Page stylesheet url to include cache breaking string

                                          Stylesheets are usually cached in browsers, so users either need to clear the cache or wait till the cache expires for any change in css to be reflected. Ideal way to approach this would be to have a cache breaking querystring (like last modified date or latest version number) to stylesheet link that kentico adds to the header, so whenever we update the stylesheet it reflects immediately for a user.
