  1. 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…

    • 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.

            • Enable copying of the content of the widgets

              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

                    • Search the entire Media Library and all sub-folders

                      Is there a way to do a Global search in Media Library?
                      I.e. when at the root folder, do a search that will find all the images in all subfolders?
                      e.g. If I want to find all the "achill" images that are in the Media Library and I go to the root folder and search for "achill" -> no images are found
                      I need to search each folder individually, so if I go to the sub-folder and search for "achill" => I find all the "achill" images in the folder
                      Searching the entire Media Library and all subfolders

                        • Can we get a Microsoft Edge specific body class instread of the 'Chrome' and 'Safari' classes?

                          Hi Kentico,

                          On https://docs.kentico.com/k10/developing-websites/designing-websites-using-css there is a table with the body classes that are generated based on the browser the client is viewing the project in.

                          Can you explain why the Microsoft Edge browser and the Google Chrome browser bot get the Chrome and Safari body class. Why isn't a Microsoft Edge specific class generated and is this maybe something you can add in the near future? It would be great to have a 'Edge' class or something like that.

                          Best regards,
                          Sander Bras

                          • media library workflow & versioning

                            Add versioning and workflow for media library items.

                            Media libraries management is a bit limited compared to other content, to make them more usable a simple submit / approve workflow would go a long way. When you have a large number of content editors items can appear and disappear from the media library with no audit trail to understand what happened.
                            Even just logging who uploaded an item would be helpful.

                            • 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…

                                    • 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.

                                        • 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.
