  1. 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…

        • 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          It should go to a draft state, therefore unpublished if using workflow.

          • 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.

              • Media gallery list view option (rather than folder tree)

                Right now, the only way to navigate through folders in a Media Gallery web part is to show the folder tree and have users navigate with the tree.

                It would be nice to have an alternate "list view" option where folders and files are listed like they are in Windows Explorer, SharePoint, and other file management tools. In other words, folders and files all appear in a single list, and users can simply click the folder name to navigate down a level.

                • Bulk upload of files into content tree

                  We had a client who wanted to assign per-file and per-folder permissions in their site. Initially we tried to use media galleries, but permissions on those can only be assigned at the gallery (root folder) level.

                  As a work-around, we looked at using the content tree, but the inability to upload files in bulk was a deal breaker there. We ended up solving the problem by using multiple media libraries and just organizing the documents in a way where we could assign permissions by library.

                  It would be great if you guys could allow files to be bulk-uploaded to the…

                  • Responsive Images Attachment GUID Selector

                    In K10 we started with responsive images. Kentico uses Attachment Variants to get this working.

                    I would like to have a media selector, which returns the attachment GUID. Currently only the attachment URL is selected.
                    But I need the GUID for almost every attachment helper method in the CMS code.

                    It would be very cool to have an attachment selector, where the user could upload a new file as cms.file (content) or as document attachment (attachment) but not to the media library.
                    The selector stores the GUID, so we could get all attachments (with variants) to create our responsive images…

                    • Wrap checkbox/radio input and label inside HTML element to control line-break issues

                      Creating a Kentico form with a checkbox/radio button list with the "Repeat direction:" set to horizontal renders a series of checkbox/radio form controls and labels with no <br> tags. However, because there is no HTMl element that groups each control/label pair, the label will drop to a new line while the checkbox stays.

                      By wrapping control/label pair inside an HTML element, such as span (even with no CSS class applied), gives us the ability to control this line-break issue with CSS.

                      Current output example (stripping all id, values and for attributes):

                      <span iclass="radio radio-list-horizontal">
                      <input type="radio" value="Phone"><label>Phone</label>
                      <input type="radio" value="Email"><label>Email</label> …

                      • Better page selection when using translation functionality

                        The current single path selector in the translation app leaves much to be desired. You have to create two exports to do a section of the site (one for the parent page, and then one for its children).

                        Adding the ability to select a node and its children, or specify multiple paths, or even choose multiple ad-hoc pages would make it less cumbersome.

                          Allow Kentico media libraries to be used cross-site with a CDN. If all sites on an installation use the same CDN it would be great to be able to use assets from other sites without having the domain prepended to the URL.

                          • A method to get the URL of media file thumbnails in given sizes

                            On the MediaFileInfoProvider or MediaFileHelper there should be a method to get the URL for a resized thumbnail of a given media file.

                            This method should take the normal maxSideSize, width and height parameters and return a URL to the relevant thumbnail (ensuring it is created if it doesn't exist) on whatever storage system the site is using.

                            If the site is using a CDN then the URL returned should be on that CDN's endpoint.

                              • Workflow Emails

                                It would be helpful to be able to flag specific roles or users to receive workflow notifications rather than all users with the "Manage Workflow" permission.

                                Use case - we have certain content that must be reviewed and approved by legal. By including specific roles / users in workflow steps, legal will only get notice of page to approve that are applicable to them.

                                  • generated code class inheritance

                                    Introduce class inheritance in generated page type model classes. Right now a page type can inherit from a base page type which is very handy. However when c# classes are generated (in code tab of the Page Types app) they both inherit from TreeNode which is very inconvenient as it denies access to base properties across all derived classes. The derived class should inherit from the base class instead of TreeNode.

                                    • Persist widget based content personalization when copying the page, or creating a new cultured version

                                      Widget based content personalization should be persisted when you copy a page, or create a new culture version and opt to copy for an existing version, or when using the translate functionality. Currently we have to do a lot of manual work to recreate the content personalization across all the languages our site supports.

                                      • When setting security on pages it would be better to be able to select multiple users/roles and change permissions for those selected.

                                        When setting security on pages it would be so much better to be able to select multiple users/roles and change permissions for those selected as it is in many other systems. This alone would make me reconsider a product.
                                        As we have lots of roles for security control on our intranet currently we have to set page permissions one by one, this is very time consuming and laborious.
                                        Thanks,
                                        Andy

                                        • Warning displayed when deleting media library item that is referenced somewhere

                                          When deleting an item in the media library it would be great for kentico to warn the use of where the image is used. So these references can be changed before deleting the item.
