  1. Visibility setting for widget properties and other means to make widget property settings dynamic

    Currently it is not possible to have a visibility condition for widget properties in MVC widgets.

    It is also not possible to dynamically add property-attributes based on code.

    In case where I have a checkbox to have a slightly modified version of the same widget I want to have extra fields appear (similar to how that is possible for the form builder or page fields)

  2. Implement staging for classes in custom modules

    Currently only data synchronization for custom module classes are supported. Changes in class definition aren't logged as staging tasks, so import/export of all module is needed for deployment.

    Enable staging for custom module classes same way as for page types or custom tables.

    Need for import/export in combination with staging is not convenient user experience.

  3. Allow using Kentico 12 in a mixed MVC and Portal Engine site

    Kentico is now moving forward in technology with the new MVC model which is highly appreciated. They also encourage everyone to migrate to the new model announcing an end of support for Portal engine with 2022.

    What is stopping us and many customer projects at the moment is:

    1.) You cannot create a mixed MVC AND Portal Engine site currently. You also cannot migrate an existing Portal Engine site of a customer to MVC or mixed.

    2.) A lot of features which are widely used are not yet available for MVC sites (Existing webparts, widgets, many/all of the social features…

  4. Official support for "Feature Folders" pattern in Kentico 12 Mvc

    When ASP.NET Mvc was first launched it was a significant change in project and framework design compared to Web Forms. Microsoft needed to place the Framework changes front and center for help developers understand the new pattern.

    Now Mvc has been around for 10 years in the ASP.NET world and other patterns, especially in front-end javascript developemt but also in ASP.NET Core, have shown to be more scalable and maintainable.

    Feature Folders is a pattern that supports focusing on business feature requirements in naming and file path conventions.

    Developers rarely work on "Models" or "Controllers" or "Views". Instead they are…

  5. Allow A/B and Multivariant tests in MVC without the page-builder

    I'd suggest that you allow new tests to be created "ad-hoc" in the CMS "A/B Tests" application.

    The CMS user should be able to define a list of variant names within an ad-hoc test. These will be the variants.

    Then in the MVC application Layout & Views something like this should be possible...

    if(@Html.Kentico().ABTest("MyTestCodename").Variant == "MyVariantName"){
    // Add or change markup based on variant in use
    }

    Additionally, having the ability to do log conversions against the current variant from within the controller would be required.

    The segmentation options should still be available in the CMS UI.

  6. 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.

  7. Translate Widgets in MVC

    According to documentation "Note: Text added and displayed on MVC pages through page builder widgets is not processed by translation services." This will become an issue for a majority of our clients that prefer the widget approach to the CMS administration.

    Kentico should seriously consider adding this feature if they want current and potential clients to embrace your MVC solution. We will not be able to recommend Kentico MVC for clients that require integration with translation services until this addressed.

  8. 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…

  9. Add Properties to MVC Widget Sections

    Kentico 12 introduces MVC Portal, which uses Widget Sections to add structure to your widget placement.

    These structures do not allow for properties to be passed to them to configure the section. This is important because on mobile-responsive sites, you could have a 2 column (50-50) layout that on desktop is 50-50, mobile 75-25, or you could have a 2 column layout that on large is 80-20, medium 50-50, small 100 and 100, etc.

    Along with this many times you want to add a wrapping class to a section to style the elements within it.

    We want the ability to…

  10. MVC Page Builder allowed Sections

    At the moment, I can just set "allowed widgets" in editable areas.

    I would like to have "allowed sections" in addition.

    With this, I would be able to allow only 1-column sections in concerned editable areas, where it would break the layout if editors would use 2- or multi-column sections.

    Hi,

    thanks for the suggestion! Based on the feedback we received, we are exploring this addition to the Page builder. Can you please share how important the following features are to you?

    1. The possibility to specify allowed sections per editable area
    2. The possibility to specify the number of sections that can be added to an editable area
    3. The possibility to specify allowed widgets per section

    Thanks

    David

  11. 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'.…

  12. Official support for Attribute Routing in Kentico 12 Mvc projects

    Attribute Routing for Mvc has been official supported by Microsoft since October 2013.

    https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/webdev/2013/10/17/attribute-routing-in-asp-net-mvc-5/

    Some developers in the .NET web community recognize it as a superior routing solution to Convention Routing, which is what Kentico 12 Mvc currently uses.

    It can be shown that Attribute Routing scales much better in terms of maintenance and flexibility with large projects compared to Convention Routing. These large projects are exactly the type that benefit from using Mvc instead of Web Forms.

    Sometimes a combination of Convention and Attribute Routing can lead to the best results for a site.

    If Kentico wants to empower…

  14. 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..

  17. Offers macro rule to compare list price to SKUPrice

    Working with retail and e-commerce business often the offers modules don't provide an option to set conditions for order discounts and product discounts.

    For example, when a sale is in progress, often clients want to exclude products where an price reduction is already applied to a product and its items. I had considered using a status setting to handle this, however the status of a product is only set at the product level and not the item/variant level, also, it can be the case that certain items/variants of a product can have a different price!

    My suggestion would be to…

  18. Allow role base permissions to email widget, so specific role's user can only change values.

    Allow role base permissions to email widget, so specific role's user can only change values.

    lets say, We Have multiple user roles,
    Admin, Sub Admin, dealer.

    Admin creates Email campaign, and email using email template.
    For this it uses email widgets, now Admin to restrict users from editing email widget data.
    Ex:-
    Admin created email and add header Widget along with some other widgets and set its value.
    It notify Sub Admin & dealer user role that email is created they can change if they want but Admin don't want them to change Header widget value.

    so for that I…
