  1. 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.

        • Multi-site media libraries with CDN

          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.

                • Using direct uploader form control in forms

                  Enable usage of direct uploader form control in forms and not only page types - it can be usable to prevent lose the selected file when page has postback.

                  • 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.

                            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.

                            • 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…

                                        • Smart search not to index content deleted or not visible webparts

                                          The content of deleted editable text webpart is still remain in content in CMS_Document table and is indexed by smart search index (if set index type = page and set content field = DocumentContent)

                                          Would like smart search not to index deleted or not visible content in the first place
