  1. 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.

    • 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…

            • 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.

                    • 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…

                      • 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
                          Michal Kadak

                            Add a simple text field in the Localization app for notes about each resource string. We have a team of publishers and it would benefit them to have a place to store their notes about where each resource string is displayed.

                              It would be awesome to have the ability to install a minimum install WITHOUT the media libraries, templates, page types, etc. that are in the installer for the starter sites. These files, etc. should only be included if you select the starter site that needs them.

                              • Smart Search Improvements

                                A code that handles populating values from "Value" field or reading from Query can be merged in the way that it reads Value first, then populate from Query. That way You can use macro to localize first dropdown option for example!
                                Smart search results : access to the count of the items option would be nice.
                                Implementation of the smart search filter to work over Query string would also be nice. (Not reloading, but pushing the state to the url for example, so speed is not lost...and values are checked on first load only).

                                  create a dedicated field in the Query Repeater Webpart to pass parameters, including macros, and add something like ##PARAMS## in the queries section, (similar to ##WHERE##) that will pass these params from the webpart into a stored procedure. also, currently, in the queries section i must select SQL Query and enter EXEC Stored_procedure_name if i want to pass params via an awkward patch by passing them in the webpart COLUMNS field. if i select Stored Procedure in the queries section - i can't pass params. this whole piece of kentico is not sorted out and fills patchy. using stored procedures…

                                  • Exclude from search: more flexible (no index, follow, etc.)

                                    I can exlude a page from being indexed by search engines by selecting 'Exclude from search'. I actually sends 'two signals' to seatch engine: do not index and do not follow links on this page as well.

                                    I would like to see that the two are seperately selectable:
                                    - No index
                                    - No follow

                                    • Passing accents in email addresses

                                      As gmail (among others) are now emails with accents in them, it would probably be preferable to allow these types of address to be accepted in Kentico (especially given that lot's of companies are moving their emails to gmail).

                                      • CSS Editor Expand/Collapse Regions

                                        It would be nice to have the ability to collapse regions of code in the editor to make it easier to focus on certain areas of code, and to make it easier to navigate around.

                                        • Show name of the sender instead of email address when sending email via API

                                          It would be great if there would be a possibility to show name of the sender in the FromEmail field when sending emails via API.
