  1. Make the web farm licensing more flexible for multi-tenant MVC sites

    Say we have a customer that has a 10-site EMS license.
    We're building MVC sites so we want the CMS in one web application and public-facing MVC site in another web application.
    To separate concerns between the sites as much as possible we'd like to have a single MVC web application for each site in the CMS.
    In the end though, there is only 1 physical servers involved (or Azure App Service plan) that hosts 11 web applications (CMS + 10 MVC applications).

    There is 1 additional web farm server license available for free when working with MVC so right…

    • MVC on Free Edition

      As of version 10 in Kentico, if a Developer wants to host a website built using Kentico CMS using MVC, they need to purchase a license for it.

      This is a barrier for developers to enter and try out Kentico CMS with MVC. Since Kentico recently announced (at the Roadshows) that MVC would become the primary development model in the next version, it makes sense to provide access to this model for new developers in that version. However as it stands, they will be forced to use one of the other, non-preferred development models (Portal, ASPX or Mixed) to evaluate…

      • Improve Automatic visitor language (culture) check

        The current automatic visitor check in Kentico is not adequate enough for country's which are multilingual.

        There's a site which has got multiple cultures:
        Dutch - Belgium (www.example.com/nl-be)
        Dutch - The Netherlands (www.example.com/nl-nl)
        English - United Kingdom (www.example.com/co-uk)
        English - Zimbabwe (www.example.com/int)
        French - Belgium (www.example.com/fr-be)
        French - France (www.example.com/fr-fr)
        German - Germany (www.example.com/de-de)

        And we have set the 'vistor culture' setting on 'automatic'.
        But when I have my browser language on Dutch, and go to www.example.com the site will redirect me to www.example.com/nl-be and not…

        • Allow users to update temporary license keys without have to delete and add

          Allow users to update temporary license keys to full license without have to delete the old and then add the new license. The goal would be achieve zero downtime when the switch is required.

          • Add the ability for CSS stylesheets and Page templates to be global instead of site-specific.

            I've run into an issue where a client may want to create numerous sites on the same Kentico installation, and want all sites to have access to common CSS and Page templates. I think this currently requires updating each CSS stylesheet and Page template's list of sites that has access to it.

            It would be nice if there was an option to make a CSS stylesheet or Page template "global", so that individual sites wouldn't need to be assigned to them.

            • Proper AWS and S3 support

              For example you cannot control what gets mapped to S3 (like you can with Azure). 2nd it clearly does not page the contents of the bucket when listing the media content which causes it to crash after around 100 items in the folder.

              • Display Repeater webpart where condition errors in event log in Kentico CMS 10

                Hi Team,

                When we are using wrong statement in Repeater where condition then it should be display "Select statement" with detail query in event log. It was in Kentico CMS 9 and Kentico CMS 8 as well but not available in Kentico CMS 10.

                • transformations and SQL Queries Apps

                  the way transformations and SQL Queries are tied to a page type is inconvenient.

                  1. you can't just search for a transformation and SQL Query in CMS, unless you remember to which page type you tied them.

                  2. when you move a page type to production via staging, all recently modified/new transformations and SQL Queries will be moved, but it's not necessarily required, especially when working on multiple projects and not everything should go to prod at the same time.

                  3. sometimes i would delete a page type, but then i lose the tied transformations and SQL Queries, which is…

                    • JavaScript Source Map

                      When you minify a JavaScript file, you can generate a "Source Map", which allows browsers' dev tools to display and debug against the unminified symbols, even though the actual running code is using the minified version.
                      I propose that when Kentico creates a minified GetResource object, it should also generate this map and include it.

                      • ability to post an HTTP webhook for a Bizform form submission

                        I would like to propose a new Bizform feature: the ability to configure an HTTP URL with each Bizform. Once configured, any form submission to this form, would trigger an HTTP Webhook POST to the specified URL. The payload of the HTTP POST would be – ideally in JSON – the form submission data.

                        One of the best Wordpress form plugins – GravityForms – does this already. See https://gravityflow.io/gravity-forms-webhooks/. The UI screenshot in the article is helpful in understanding what configuration options there might be. Ideally the implementation would use a queue, much like the mail queue, to allow…

                          • Add a gender neutral avatar to the standard Kentico build as the default

                            Currently in a standard build the default avatar for all users is a male. This will be incorrect for 50% of the users and obviously doesn't make sense.

                            It should be a gender neutral avatar and would be a really quick change to implement.

                            • The Kentico installer should do server environmental tests for compatabilty

                              The Kentico installer should do basic OS, .NET, SQL Server, and IIS version testing and refuse (or at the very least, sternly warn) to complete an install of Kentico CMS.

                              Recently, were were bitten by "dbo" and "db_owner" default owner differences between different versions of MS-SQL Server, which caused Kentico to fail in the most horrible ways over custom tables created by new Page Types. Much head scratching could have been avoided with a SQL Server test at install time.

                                    Hello,
                                    Hotfix 10.0.3 does fix this issues for our built-in gateways.

                                    Hotfix description:
                                    Due to a misconfiguration of the system’s CSRF protection, an error occurred when verifying payments that were made using the PayPal payment gateway. As a result, the payment was aborted and the order not marked as paid.

                                    Is this the issue you are dealing with?

                                    Kind Regards

                                  • Support custom properties in SearchContext.CurrentSearchResults

                                    When developing a custom index you currently are limited in what you can store in the index. Only the default search fields are supported, but you cannot add your own custom columns to the DataRow object in SearchContext.CurrentSearchResults.

                                    Adding custom columns to the DataRow would be a welcome feature that is in line with way Kentico wants to approach MVC. Sometimes a simple 'Pages' index is just not enough to display data and you want to avoid doing database queries to gather more information about the search results.

                                    Currently for custom indexes, the DataRow is being created hardcoded (see attached…

                                      While Kentico does support OpenID, "OpenID Connect" performs many of the same tasks but does so in a way that is standardized and API-friendly.

                                      We have centralized authentication across numerous sites (both internal and external) using OpenID Connect and our Kentico site is the one lone holdout due to lack of support.

                                      • Create versioning in Staging Task Groups

                                        As much as the task group lists are useful. We feel that if they could be further developed so that it includes versioning of pages/templates for non-technical website editors.

                                        This would mean that website editors could work on the same template and stage only their changes rather than all of the changes that have been made on that page/template.

                                          Hello,

                                          I think you’re trying to achieve a cooperation process. However, staging of version history is not a good solution for that.

                                          Let’s say the staging will support version history changes, but after a successful staging, the new version history will overwrite the old versions as there’s no merge.

                                          We are solving this with our CI functionality. Which may be difficult for non-technical users, however, there are User-Friendly merge/repository tools that may be useful in this case.

                                          Please let me know what you think about this.

                                          Kind Regards
