  1. Hide or customise Kentico 12 Form Builder components

    Hide and customise default K12 Form Builder components.

    At the moment there are no ways to hide or customise form builder components in Kentico 12 and it can be frustrating for the content editors.

    A good example is for us, where we would never use the US Post Code form component, so it would be good to hide this.

    • Official support for "Feature Folders" pattern in Kentico 12 Mvc

      When ASP.NET Mvc was first launched it was a significant change in project and framework design compared to Web Forms. Microsoft needed to place the Framework changes front and center for help developers understand the new pattern.

      Now Mvc has been around for 10 years in the ASP.NET world and other patterns, especially in front-end javascript developemt but also in ASP.NET Core, have shown to be more scalable and maintainable.

      Feature Folders is a pattern that supports focusing on business feature requirements in naming and file path conventions.

      Developers rarely work on "Models" or "Controllers" or "Views". Instead they are…

      • Official support for Attribute Routing in Kentico 12 Mvc projects

        Attribute Routing for Mvc has been official supported by Microsoft since October 2013.

        https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/webdev/2013/10/17/attribute-routing-in-asp-net-mvc-5/

        Some developers in the .NET web community recognize it as a superior routing solution to Convention Routing, which is what Kentico 12 Mvc currently uses.

        It can be shown that Attribute Routing scales much better in terms of maintenance and flexibility with large projects compared to Convention Routing. These large projects are exactly the type that benefit from using Mvc instead of Web Forms.

        Sometimes a combination of Convention and Attribute Routing can lead to the best results for a site.

        If Kentico wants to empower…

        • Add Properties to MVC Widget Sections

          Kentico 12 introduces MVC Portal, which uses Widget Sections to add structure to your widget placement.

          These structures do not allow for properties to be passed to them to configure the section. This is important because on mobile-responsive sites, you could have a 2 column (50-50) layout that on desktop is 50-50, mobile 75-25, or you could have a 2 column layout that on large is 80-20, medium 50-50, small 100 and 100, etc.

          Along with this many times you want to add a wrapping class to a section to style the elements within it.

          We want the ability to…

          • MVC Page Builder allowed Sections

            At the moment, I can just set "allowed widgets" in editable areas.

            I would like to have "allowed sections" in addition.

            With this, I would be able to allow only 1-column sections in concerned editable areas, where it would break the layout if editors would use 2- or multi-column sections.

            • Create Page / URL and Media picker's for MVC Widget Properties window

              Create Page / URL picker for MVC Widget Properties window.
              It would be useful to be able to have a Page or URL Picker for when working with MVC Widgets..

              It would also be useful to have a Media Picker, instead of having to upload a new image each time.

              Right now, there are very limited controls that can be used here..

              • ACL - Grant access by role

                Currently I can't grant access to a page for users in one specific role using ACL settings.
                I was told to use a "deny" role instead - which is not a solution for me.

                It would be great if it is possible to grant read access to a page for users in one specific role. This is not possible at the moment.

                Current behaviour example:
                If I set "Requires Authentication", any user who is logged in gets access, regardless of the user's roles.
                If I do not set "Requires Authentication", even anonymous users can read it.
                If I use the…

                • Make links more accessible with aria-label attribute field

                  Would be awesome if you'd add a new field under the Advanced tab of the Insert link dialog for descriptive text that would get rendered as an arial-label attribute on the link being inserted. This would allow content editors to create accessible "read more" links without having to switch to source mode.

                  • Customization of Widget / Inline Editor asset bundling

                    Mvc widgets are great because they give both developers and content managers flexibility in features, design, and content.

                    I envision developers creating Widget libraries to enable re-use of common widget patterns across sites or sharing them with the community.

                    Currently the bundling process for widgets when the Mvc site is in edit-mode when configuring widgets in the CMS is very restrictive.

                    I have to copy javascript/css that I copy from Github into files in my Mvc project and then commit them. This goes against the best practices of not committing build artifacts to source control.

                    The javascript community has already…

                      CKEditor 5 - it is awesome if Kentico would upgrade the CKEditor to version 5 that support more powerful and user-friendly editor tools.

                        Firefox now also supports webp images. Edge will also when it starts to use the Chrome engine. It will only be a matter of time before all browsers support webp images

                          • Please allow salesforce sandbox conncection to be used for integration testing.

                            Right now the compiled code for Salesforce authentication has "login.salesforce.com" hardcode for Oauth. Please change that to something can be changed via web.config or settings key, so developers can switch that to "test.salesforce.com" to test integration with sandbox.

                              Please add a feature into the upgrade program to rollback to the previous version if the upgrade fails. It can use the site and database backups already created earlier in the upgrade process. For the complexity and cost of this CMS system, it should have an automated rollback feature that handles a failed upgrade attempt for you.

                                We've found a few references that indicate the <meta charset> declaration should precede the <title> declaration in the <head> element. Seems like it's preferable to have it immediately after the opening <head> tag.

                                • MVC Section default Widget

                                  At the moment, only "default section" can be declared globally.

                                  I would like to set "default widget" to any section in addition.

                                  With this, I would be able to add a inline editor text widget to concerned section elements by default. The editors would not need to add the text widget before they can edit the text.

                                  • Introduce sort order for Related pages

                                    Allow editors to change the order of the related pages under the "Related pages" tab.

                                    Also, separate out Left-Right, Right-Left relationships into their own lists to sorting.

                                    • Allow all country versions to be updated at once

                                      For instance, be able to change a picture or page title across all country versions at once, rather than having to do it manually on each country version

                                      • Implement support for SAML 2.0

                                        Officially Kentico only supports SAML 1.0/1.1. Needs to also support SAML 2.0.

                                        • eDM Send page

                                          It would be great if on the Send page there is an at-a-glance table showing all the pertinent information needed before hitting Send. It should show the main information required for sending (eg filename, subject line, sender, sender address, reply to address, contact groups and numbers, opt-out groups etc. This isn’t provided in Kentico, so I need to go through different tabs and pages to double-check information (eg an eDM was sent this week with an incorrect subject line).

                                          The ‘make sure’ list in Kentico Send page is more of a checklist than information.
