  1. Addition of Responsive Image Management to Media Libraries

    It would be great to have Responsive Image Management added to Media Libraries. It is a really nice feature for page attachments and would be a great addition to Media Libraries.

    Thanks!

    • Built-in localization support for System.Web.Mvc.RemoteAttribute on data models

      Most data annotation attributes are supported and localized automatically when a call to builder.UseDataAnnotationsLocalization(); is added in the ApplicationConfig file, which is great and we've adopted this across the board, however the RemoteAttribute does not appear to be supported.

      It is used for real-time remote validation, such as checking if an email address is in use.

      • Multi-lingual sites - dont change current site language if default culture page is loaded.

        If we have a multi-lingual site, and set the Combine with default culture Setting option, if a page is not available or translated, then it loads the page in the default culture. However, it also then changes the selected language for the site to the default culture.
        This is confusing for the site visitor, since not only is the page in a different language, but also the header, footer, menus and all surrounding content.
        It would be preferable if the default culture page was loaded inside the existing language, without changing the site language.

        • Drag and drop content ordering for the order stories appear on the front end. The current "arrow" solution is archaic and slow.

          We need to be able to drag and drop articles in the Featured Content Listing in order to change the order they appear on the front end. Using and up/down arrow is inefficient and cumbersome. Event a manual entry number solution would be a huge improvement.

          • Full Widget Property Inheritance

            We use Widgets for almost every content in our pages.
            Every Widget has the same “BASE” fields to get common settings working in every Widget an editor could use. This fields are e.g. “Headline Text”, “Headline Type”, “Show Headline”, “Show On Mobile Device”, “Background Color”, etc. Those fields are too complex to get this working with a Wep Part container.

            Currenty, I used the “Clone” method to clone from a base Web Part. But this is very awful if the customer wishes to have a new common field in all Widgets. In this case I am forced to add the…

            • Add "Reset to default widgets" to page edit toolbar

              The button would reset all Editor widgets on the page to the defaults set in the page template. This is useful when specific pages have been edited but we need to reset the widgets the ones in the default template.

              • Remove Default Bootstrap Classes

                When using many of Kentico's default controls (CMSButton, CMSTextBox etc), standard CSS classes are being added by default (btn, form-control etc).

                What I'd like to see is some way of overriding this because the front end we make for our websites is created before the Kentico site is made. Therefore we often have to override the CSS styles that have been set when the bootstrap classes outputted by Kentico conflict with the styles we have front ended. For example, a page might not have been front ended with a "btn" class on a button, but when Kentico adds it, it…

                  • Need faster way of choosing which fields are visible when creating widgets

                    I'm working on a site that has some complicated web parts that are being converted to widgets. t is a very time consuming process to go through and select all the fields to be visible on the widget. It would be nice if you could select a bunch of fields to show as visible or not, or event just a make hide show all fields button.

                      • View webpart properties without checking out the template

                        When using versioning and checkout/checkin for templates I have to checkout a template not only yo modify webparts on the template but also to view the properties of a webpart.
                        I often need to just view the properties of webparts and this is not possible if another developer has the template checkedout.

                        I'd like to be able to open the properties window of a webpart in read-only mode when the template is not checkedout by me.

                        • Enable Kentico Admins to preview without publishing page

                          It would be really useful if there could be a 'preview to draft' mode so that admins can preview their changes before publishing to live. The existing preview mode shows you how the page will look on the front end, but the content is published at this stage. This often confuses users.

                          I understand we can do this with workflow but this would be great as a basic function.

                          Thanks!

                          • Adding unique key constraints in custom tables

                            I don't believe there's a way to specify that a certain column in a custom table should be unique, beyond writing a custom insert event that tries to detect other items with the same field.
                            This would ideally be implemented using the SQL unique key constraint properties, and in the custom table Fields UI it could simply show as another "Validation Rule" dropdown option, or as a checkbox similar to "Required".

                            • Add additional "DataItemLevelIndex" and "DataItemLevelCount" attributes to Hierarchical Viewers/Transformations

                              When using Hierarchical Transformations we need to know how many items are in the current level being transformed as well as the current items index on that level. We can this already in repeater transformations with the DataItemIndex and DataItemCount attributes, but these don't help when you are using a hierarchical transformation because they just tell you how many items are being transformed in the whole dataset, not in relation to the current level.

                              This blog post gives an example of the problem and a workaround:

                              • Allow "content only" pages to be converted to standard pages and vice versa

                                During development we made a decision to create certain page types as "Content Only" pages.

                                Unfortunately, later in development a decision was made to include a detail pages for these page types and therefore they need to be changed to standard page types.

                                Please add the ability to convert between the two types, otherwise the "risk/reward" balance means there is little point in using "content only" page types.

                                • Remove Tilde from URLs for MVC

                                  Currently, when you create an HTML field in Kentico and then render it into a view on an MVC site, it appends a tilde (~) to the start of any relative URL path.

                                  This causes links to break and according to Kentico Support this is the expected behavior.

                                  It seems like there should be an option to remove the tilde.

                                  This is in reference to Support Ticket #0094000107.

                                    Need way to add custom class names to body tag.

                                    Customizing via CMSContext.CurrentBodyClass isn't sufficient -- it's clumsy and subject to deprecation.

                                    • Repeatable Elements

                                      In certain other CMS-es it is possible to implement a repeatable field within a smartform, this way for exampel contents such as articles do not need to have a predefined number of fields/elements but can provide the flexibility to add as many as the user wishes.

                                      • Limit Widgets allowed in Widget Zone

                                        Very simple, would be great to be allowed to limit what types of widgets are allowed in Widget zones. This way we can place a widget zone and allow specific widgets in there only (like a footer link widget in the footer area, or a header link widget, etc).

                                        Would be relatively simple. Add a widget class selector field to a Webpart zone that's set to be a Widget zone, then have the Widget selector filter the available widgets based on that.

                                          Hello,

                                          we are exploring the options on how to limit widgets that can be added to various zones that are available to content editors on the whole web.

                                          Limiting widgets per zone is one of the most considered options.

                                          (Please note that the main focus is on the MVC devleopment model)

                                          If you have any suggestions on what possibilities to limit widgets you would appreciate, please leave a comment below!

                                        • HTML Minified

                                          Now only CSS and JavaScript files can control to minified.

                                          Kentico Should add one more feature so that the hrml also can be minified.

                                          Thanks.
