  1. Open source Kentico.AspNet.Mvc

    The Kentico 12 MVC integration library, Kentico.AspNet.Mvc, is currently closed source, but distributed through NuGet https://www.nuget.org/packages/Kentico.AspNet.Mvc/.

    Basically all of the cool Kentico 12 MVC magic that makes widgets, alternative urls, page templates, and all the other MVC stuff work is within this package.

    Currently I decompile the .dlls to help diagnose issues and understand how the MVC architecture integrations with Kentico.

    It would be great if this project was open sourced to allow for developers to have more insight and to encourage community feedback and contributions.

  2. Importing of licence file

    On the client portal we can upgrade and export all our licences to a text file. However, you don't provide a facility to import that text file in CMSSiteManager. Please add a button under Licences to import and replace existing licences with the new ones.

  3. Create Page / URL and Media picker's for MVC Widget Properties window

    Create Page / URL picker for MVC Widget Properties window.
    It would be useful to be able to have a Page or URL Picker for when working with MVC Widgets..

    It would also be useful to have a Media Picker, instead of having to upload a new image each time.

    Right now, there are very limited controls that can be used here..

  4. HTML editable text input window in the form tab should be resizeable and responsive

    There is not the possibility to make the input field for the HTML editable text resizeable. It looks out-of-date on the new screens with high resolution.

  5. "Save and Add Another" button in Modules

    It would be great if we could add a button for "Save and Add Another" to screens built in in the Module section, just like you can for Custom Tables. Without that button it is a clumsy process to save, then go back a screen to click the button to add new.

  6. Implement support for SAML 2.0

    Officially Kentico only supports SAML 1.0/1.1. Needs to also support SAML 2.0.

  8. auto-select the uploaded package

    When i update a new package to import, it would be nice if the new package will be selected automatically instead of having to selected it manually. (So many time i click « next » with the wrong package)

  9. Azure retry logic

    It would be great if Kentico implemented a retry logic for queries and calls. This would be especially beneficial when running on Azure because transient errors occur quite often in this kind of environment and it is strongly recommended that you should never rely on a successful finish of any operation and rather implement a retry logic instead.

  10. 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…

  11. 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

  12. 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).

  13. Allow custom view engines in K12 MVC

    In MVC one of the key extensibility points is the abiltiy to create a custom View Engine.

    This is most often achieved by implementing a new View Engine class that inherits from RazorViewEngine - thereby retaining all of Razor's functionality but allowing the MVC developer to specify new or additional locations for Views and Layouts.

    This gives developers the ability to create multi-site MVC instances as well as sites that contain different themes.

    Per support case 0087006336 it appears that Kentico has made the custom View Engine that they use in Kentico 12 MVC "internal", preventing the end developer from…

  14. Pass Parameters to Stored Procedure from Query Repeater Webpart

    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 Storedprocedurename 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…

  16. Customization of Widget / Inline Editor asset bundling

    Mvc widgets are great because they give both developers and content managers flexibility in features, design, and content.

    I envision developers creating Widget libraries to enable re-use of common widget patterns across sites or sharing them with the community.

    Currently the bundling process for widgets when the Mvc site is in edit-mode when configuring widgets in the CMS is very restrictive.

    I have to copy javascript/css that I copy from Github into files in my Mvc project and then commit them. This goes against the best practices of not committing build artifacts to source control.

    The javascript community has already…

  17. Please allow salesforce sandbox conncection to be used for integration testing.

    Right now the compiled code for Salesforce authentication has "login.salesforce.com" hardcode for Oauth. Please change that to something can be changed via web.config or settings key, so developers can switch that to "test.salesforce.com" to test integration with sandbox.

  19. Implement modern authentication for SharePoint online connections

    Currently this is not supported. We NEED it and don't want to have to write our own.

    In our SharePoint online tenant, we would like to disable legacy authentication and only use modern authentication. When we switch off legacy auth - per this link - https://blog.areflyen.no/2017/06/18/problem-with-connecting-to-sharepoint-online-in-office-365-with-powershell-sharepoint-designer-and-other-3-party-tools/

    We get the following errors:

    When testing SPO connection: A protocol error occurred. No sharepoint instance may be running on given URL or the credentials are not valid.

    Log shows: Message: Cannot contact web site (our tenant) or the web site does not support SharePoint Online credentials. The response status code is 'Unauthorized'.…

  20. 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.
