  1. Preview in New Tab

    Preview mode shows the site in a smaller window. I generally like to open a new tab to see the rendered page. Editors with limited exposure to Kentico don't always know that they can do this.
    I thought it would be a good option to add the extra option to open a page in a new tab (via a rollover option that appears under the Preview button perhaps?).
    This accomplishes 2 things: It provides a full site view of a page, and secondly, it provides the full display of the url that can be copied. I would find it useful…

    • Fix hyperlink bug & inability to add a photo caption in CKEditor

      The university I work at uses recently updated to v10 and shortly after we noticed that after about 5 minutes of working in kentico, you can no longer add in hyperlinks. The window either loads forever or it loads a blank page making it impossible to add the link without using a silly work around - links should be a straightforward process.

      Lukas from Kentico told us "I discussed this with our Product Owner - unfortunately CKEditor will not be upgraded in Kentico 12 and currently there are no plans for upgrading it in any feature version. I am really…

      • Repeater/Viewers Having Generic filters apply to datasource not just path

        When a repeater or a Viewer is given a path you can add filters like where, order by, class names. You should be able to do that even if a datasource was provided. All the filters can easily be applied to a data source. It would also allow generic Datasources to be made for a page and then used for several items. This way it would help reduce calls to the DB.

          • Storing Cache Data in Redis instead of Server Memory

            It would be nice if you could have the cache stored in Redis cache. IT would help prevent the server memory from getting large similar to file storage. Also, if using a Web Farm it would provide a way to store the cache in a centralized location.

            • Site wide preview function that takes account of the date

              The existing preview function shows a page as it will appear when scheduled content goes live. As such it takes no real account of the system calendar.
              The idea therefore is to allow the user to alter a calendar offset, such that he or she can see the site as it will appear at some future date. The user would be able to role the calendar forwards to view scheduled changes as time elapses over a period in the future.
              The essential difference between this and the preview mode is that it would show the various phases, so for example…

                  During the changes with the field Path or pattern (Properties/URL) it would be nice to see LiveURL immediately in the same window. There is necessary to have another browser tab (with Properties/General) or anonymous window (with the page) open

                  • Digital Asset Management

                    Upload assets in bulk, assign them multiple metadata and then have them displayed quickly/easily through out the site using repeaters which specifically target the list of metadata.

                    Example:
                    Upload a photo of a tree.

                    Meta data on characteristics of image: Tree, Apple, In Bloom, Backyard, Sunset Tree

                    Meta data on photograph: rights managed, photographer, date, price, limitations.

                    Meta data on access/sites/access: Allowed on intranet, not allowed on external.

                    Just standard DAM functionality. Seems like a popular module. It would make managing images in the Media Library a whole lot easier to manage too.

                    • Form list view - add timestamp for latest submission

                      When you look at the list of your forms the only information you are given is the Form Name and the number of Entries. As our forms rarely have an expiration, I would also like to see a timestamp for the last submission to each form (the column labelled "Form inserted" in the Recorded data view). This means at a glance I would be able to tell which forms had recent activity and which ones haven't.

                      In our office, the person receiving emailed form data is not usually me, but I need to refer to the forms regularly to see…

                      • Kentico MVC Content Only Pages URL Pattern Field Added into New Page Type Wizard

                        The New Page Type Wizard asks in Step 2 if you are creating Content Only Page Types. If you check this checkbox, nothing else changes in the Wizard for the remaining 5 steps and it is very easy to forget that the URL Pattern field of the Content Only Page Type should be filled in for MVC sites.

                        Suggestion: If the Content Only Page Type is checked in step 2, dynamically show a field that allows you to enter in the URL pattern right then and there (as an optional field).

                        • Add functionality to use Shift to select multiple items in a list

                          On a page like Staging, when I want to select 10 items out of a 20 item list, I can't click the first item and then use the Shift button on my keyboard and click the last item to select them all at once.

                          Instead I have to click 10 times to individually select each one.

                          You do have the option of clicking the box to select the entire list, but if I want to highlight one chunk out of a big list, I can't do it quickly or efficiently without clicking every single individual item.

                            • Use current domain instead of main domain in admin interface for apps such as "My Pages"

                              When using a domain alias for the admin interface, if the user is in an app such as "My Pages" when clicking to edit or preview a page, the system uses the default domain. This results in the user being redirected and asked to login, etc.

                              • Thumbnail view for attachment fields containing image variants

                                I would like to have a thumbnail view mode for attachment fields. We use this field type to store gallery images with concerned image versions. The customer likes to have a thumbnail view mode like it is available for folders containing multiple cms.file pages.

                                In the "attachment" field type, only a list view is possible. The image is shown only on hover.

                                In addition it would be nice to have an option to hide image variants because the content editors do not need this information.

                                Thx, Elmar

                                • 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…

                                    Hello!

                                    Thanks for your complete explanation of the need for MVC in the Free edition.

                                    This seems to be a more common requirement now when we look into MVC further and we are evaluating this change right now.

                                    I will keep you updated about the progress as we come closer to the next beta.

                                    Allow for HTTP POST of a form that just goes to an external site. I don't want to have to write any C# or bypass everything with JQUERY or other library. I just want to put method="POST" and an action="externalurl" to send my form data to.

                                    e.g. Salesforce Web-to-Case, Web-to-Lead other third party widget that I want to embed in my site that has nothing to do with Kentico at all.

                                    Sometimes, you just don't want to Forms from Kentico as the information is going to SurveyGizmo or something else. Just a simple post to a 3rd party URL where…

                                    • Make it possible to use an existing Resource String in the form builder

                                      If you want to use an existing resource string in for example a label in the form builder, the option is disabled. There is no setting or option to enable it for any role. This looks like a bug, since the option is build in there, but disabled. This is weird and should be fixed a.s.a.p.

                                      • Web part Visibility Where Condition

                                        Allow a Where condition inside of a Web Part's Visibility so we can set up rules other than page types or roles. It would be nice to have the web part hide if a certain field isn't entered or set up other custom criteria there.

                                        • Sort smart search by document name

                                          Did you know that DocumentName and Document title are not currently allowed as sorting options by default on smart search? Kentico Support's official recommendation is to go into the Modules and set the Pages module as customizable, to save document name and title as fields outside of _content (thus letting them be sortable)

                                          Title should be able to be one of the default sortable items without having to customize the site.
