  1. 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.

  3. 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.

  5. Live URL visible in Properties/URL

    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

  6. 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…

  7. 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.

  8. 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…

  10. 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.

  11. 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

  12. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

    This is a very…

  16. Redirect URLs/Aliases When Archiving a Page

    When I delete a page, I have the option to "Redirect old URLs to another page", which is great because one does not want to create broken links or 404 errors on your site for UX and SEO purposes.

    However when I archive a page, I don't have this option and have to manually follow these steps:

    - change original page alias
    - copy all aliases individually from original page
    - archive original page
    - past all aliases to redirected page

    When I archive a microsite with 10 pages and each page has 5-10 aliases, this becomes very time consuming…

  17. 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.

  18. External Form Post

    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…

  19. Allow import/export of XLIFF translation files for custom resource strings in the Localization app

    Kentico allows you to define custom, translatable resource strings via the Localization application, under the Resource strings tab.

    However, it doesn't look like there's a built-in method to export those resource strings to XLIFF file(s) for translation to other cultures.

    It would be beneficial to have the ability to send XLIFF files to a translation company to translate into a new culture, and import the updated XLIFF files directly into the site, as we can currently do with pages.

  20. Add WebP support to the ImageHelper class

    When creating image variants, it would be great if we could also convert images to WebP.

    While WebP isn't universally supported, the <picture> tag could be used to offer it as an option to browsers that do support it, reducing page load.
