  1. The ability to see what webparts are using particular transformations

    It would be a welcome addition to the kentico interface to be able to see where a certain transformation is being used. This could be implemented the same way as in pages were you can see what documents are using a particular page type. This would aid in the changing of transformations so we can track of what those changes might be affecting.

    • CSS List Menu - Additional Class Property for <ul>

      As you know, you can add css selectors to first, last, hover, mouseout, mouseover, and even add an id to the <ul>, within the web part properties.

      But why do you not allow css selectors to be added to the <ul>? jQuery is the only option to add classes to the <ul>.

      Just a suggestion, since you already have so many places to add css classes. Why not on the <ul> too? Also, because of better css techniques, you don’t really need many of the other options for adding css classes, if you have a class at the top level…

      • 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        • Add a field within the Form tab for a 'Review Date' and extend Outdated Pages app

          Within regulated markets our clients are requesting the ability to trigger notifications / workflows for content which needs to be reviewed rather than unpublish. Currently the only way to achieve this is to use the Outdated Pages app or develop a custom scheduled task. This could be extended with content for review and also trigger a notification email. This would be great to build into the core of the project given the enterprise reach of the product now.

          • 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…

            • 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.

              • The Ability Schedule Webpage Updates

                Replace the "Save" button with two buttons: one that says "Publish now" and one that says "Publish later" with the ability to select a date and time for the page to publish the updates.

                • Improve widget display in rich text editor

                  Editors have difficulty differentiating widgets in the rich text editor / CKEditor, especially in large amounts of content. For example, the BlogPostBody field may contain multiple instances of our "Article Image" widget, but they all appear as only an icon.

                  I don't know what the limitations are, and realize there may be efficiency issues since the lifecycle of the widget and web part have to run for the widget to display, but I'll put forward a couple solution ideas:

                  Option 1) Have "Show preview in editor" checkbox and preview dimension fields in widget instance properties. Instead of the widget thumbnail,…

                  • 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.

                    • 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.

                        • 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

                                  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.

                                  • 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.

                                      • figcaption

                                        Proper support for figcaption for inline images. Allowing a user to set a "caption" which is outputted as a figcaption within a figure element.

                                        • Preview pages in CMSDesk as "not authenticated" or as a selected other role.

                                          With permissions, security or web part settings some pages can look different to different users. When logged in as Administrator, If you want to view a page and see what it looks like to people that haven't logged in, you can't unless you log out. Logging out logs you out of CMSDesk too, so you have to log back in again to make an amend.

                                          Also you can't easily confirm "edit", "delete", "add new" buttons are only showing to the right users because Global Administrator sees everything all the time.

                                          I would like to have view options in the preview…
