  1. Make the web farm licensing more flexible for multi-tenant MVC sites

    Say we have a customer that has a 10-site EMS license.
    We're building MVC sites so we want the CMS in one web application and public-facing MVC site in another web application.
    To separate concerns between the sites as much as possible we'd like to have a single MVC web application for each site in the CMS.
    In the end though, there is only 1 physical servers involved (or Azure App Service plan) that hosts 11 web applications (CMS + 10 MVC applications).

    There is 1 additional web farm server license available for free when working with MVC so right…

    • Ability to seperate email based on type to different SMTP servers

      Sending all mail generated from Kentico through the same (set of) SMTP server(s) is a bad idea. Why? If marketing emails result in service being throttled by the SMTP service (it happens), it also slows down delivery of transactional email.

      Perhaps this could be set up to send to different sub-domains e.g. mktg.example.com & store.example.com.

      Or email templates have a tag that is used for determining which service they get forward to.

      Either way, this can help to seperate not only issues when they arise, but also reporting etc.

      If Kentico is serious about email marketing, I think this is…

      • MVC on Free Edition

        As of version 10 in Kentico, if a Developer wants to host a website built using Kentico CMS using MVC, they need to purchase a license for it.

        This is a barrier for developers to enter and try out Kentico CMS with MVC. Since Kentico recently announced (at the Roadshows) that MVC would become the primary development model in the next version, it makes sense to provide access to this model for new developers in that version. However as it stands, they will be forced to use one of the other, non-preferred development models (Portal, ASPX or Mixed) to evaluate…

        • Improve Automatic visitor language (culture) check

          The current automatic visitor check in Kentico is not adequate enough for country's which are multilingual.

          There's a site which has got multiple cultures:
          Dutch - Belgium (www.example.com/nl-be)
          Dutch - The Netherlands (www.example.com/nl-nl)
          English - United Kingdom (www.example.com/co-uk)
          English - Zimbabwe (www.example.com/int)
          French - Belgium (www.example.com/fr-be)
          French - France (www.example.com/fr-fr)
          German - Germany (www.example.com/de-de)

          And we have set the 'vistor culture' setting on 'automatic'.
          But when I have my browser language on Dutch, and go to www.example.com the site will redirect me to www.example.com/nl-be and not…

          • Add a culture setting for pre-computing week analytics data

            Currently the web analytics of Kentico use the en-US culture to store week analytics data. Which means a week starts on Sunday and ends on Saturday by default.

            If a customer uses a different culture such as nl-NL, the graph period selector uses the international standard of Monday as the start day and Sunday as the last day of the week.

            Selecting this will however result in a period of 2 weeks, since the weeks are rounded, which can be very confusing for the customer.

            Preferably there would be an option to select the culture in which the week analytics…

            • "Save and Add Another" button in Modules

              It would be great if we could add a button for "Save and Add Another" to screens built in in the Module section, just like you can for Custom Tables. Without that button it is a clumsy process to save, then go back a screen to click the button to add new.

              • Allow multiple category selection in listing and datasource webparts

                When using a repeater webpart for instance you can only select 1 category. Same is true if you use a documents datasource or a hierarchical viewer webpart. The API allows you to pass in multiple categories when doing a document or object query but we do not have this same ability to do so with any of the out of the box controls.

                I come across this use case in roughly every other site build. Unfortunately, it isn't available so we end up performing a no-so-fantastic work around by using the API to get what is needed vs. using OOTB…

                • Ability to customize facebook og and twitter card metadata within the existing Metadata section of the Properties tab

                  There is already a functioning area to hold and edit metadata information with good inheritance rules. Can the functionality be expanded to include metadata for common social networks such as facebook and twitter? This is a widely requested feature by clients and the Metadata section in the Properties tab seems like a natural fit.

                  • Create culture aliases with slash (/) e.g. ca/fr (French - Canada)

                    I would like the ability to add culture aliases to be used as the prefix for the URL with a slash in the alias. The format would be CountryCode/LanguageCode. Currently the system allows you to save the culture alias in that format but visiting the URL will produce a 404 error.

                    • Allow Editor Stylesheet to link to an external file

                      The Css editor for stylesheets is very limited as an editor. As a result, we keep our editor-styles.less with our other .less files and compile it ourselves.

                      Then, I need to open the Kentico CMS and copy the contents of editor-styles.css into the Kentico Editor and save there. Then go back and check the changes.

                      It would be great if we could link to an existing file like we can for webpart files for example.

                      • Add "reset to default" button to widget properties pop-up

                        When setting default values to widget properties that are hidden, there is no way to reset the property value if the widget default values are changed.

                        For example, when adding 10 instances of a widget, they will have the hidden field values set as defined in the widget properties.
                        If the default values are then changed, all 10 instances of the widget need to be removed and re-added to the pages.

                        By introducing a "reset to default" button, the hidden field values (or all field values) could be "refreshed", without the need to re-add the widget.

                        • Include attachments in site analytics

                          Currently there is no record of document attachment navigation. As these files are not located in a library or a file type, they are not recorded as a navigation. This metric is important to our business as we have implemented automated PDF document production for our pages and would like to understand how often these attachments are downloaded.

                            Unfortunatelly, if the widget is copied and placed in the content page, it lose its content. The copy has only the settings, but the content is lost.
                            Can you change this behavior?

                                  • improved side by side comparison view of amended text

                                    it would save us a lot of time if there was a more visual way to configure the side-by-side version comparison i.e. yellow highlighting of added text, changes to documents (PDFs) added/removed (via a widget), images etc.

                                    Currently we can only see changes to text through text in red or red strike-through. we can't see any changes to the formatting i.e. styling applied to headings. we have a lot of changes daily and have to troll through looking at everything

                                      • Calendar: Make different colour codes for different departments' events. For example PSP Sports - blue; PSP REC - green; MFRC - yellow.

                                        Calendar: Make different colour codes for different departments' events. For example PSP Sports - blue; PSP REC - green; MFRC - yellow; Health Promotion - orange.

                                        This would give the viewer a way to view the calendar events in the category they are interested in. Finding events and dates would become easier.
