  1. 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…

  2. 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!

  3. 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.

  4. Don't set height via style in image editor

    When resizing an image in the image editor set the height and width properties as attributes not with the style tag. when you set the height and width it makes it difficult to make the image resize automatically with the browser.

  5. Media Library search of file title and file description

    When keyword searching a media library, the search only searches the file name. It would be very helpful to have the search also look at the file title and file description fields that can be set on the file.

  6. 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.

  7. Add an option to have MVC widget property dialogs open automatically when placing on page

    When placing a MVC widget into a section, and the widget has a properties dialog with required fields, it would be sensible to open the widget configuration dialog automatically.

    Currently, it does not open and a content editor will see incomplete results on the page, or could save the page without adding these properties in. If the widget has properties, especially required properties, open the widget dialog by default. Or, add a WidgetController property/setting to designate whether this behavior should occur.

  9. 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…

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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

  13. 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.

  15. 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…

  16. 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.

  17. 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?

  18. 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.

  19. Custom table description

    It would be nice if you there could be a text description for a custom table. This could be displayed at the top of the table data list to describe the purpose of the table, or to give instructions for data entry.

    I'm thinking this could be either an additional field under a custom table's "General" settings, or an alternative form (with a custom layout containing only text) using a reserved keyword (like 'filter','insert','update' or 'newculture')
