  1. Hide or customise Kentico 12 Form Builder components

    Hide and customise default K12 Form Builder components.

    At the moment there are no ways to hide or customise form builder components in Kentico 12 and it can be frustrating for the content editors.

    A good example is for us, where we would never use the US Post Code form component, so it would be good to hide this.

    • ACL - Grant access by role

      Currently I can't grant access to a page for users in one specific role using ACL settings.
      I was told to use a "deny" role instead - which is not a solution for me.

      It would be great if it is possible to grant read access to a page for users in one specific role. This is not possible at the moment.

      Current behaviour example:
      If I set "Requires Authentication", any user who is logged in gets access, regardless of the user's roles.
      If I do not set "Requires Authentication", even anonymous users can read it.
      If I use the…

      • Add support for Webp

        Firefox now also supports webp images. Edge will also when it starts to use the Chrome engine. It will only be a matter of time before all browsers support webp images

        • Allow all country versions to be updated at once

          For instance, be able to change a picture or page title across all country versions at once, rather than having to do it manually on each country version

          • Automatically generate MVC View/Controller/Repository boilerplate

            Currently, Kentico will allow automatic generation of the Model based on page types.
            However, in order to match Kentico's existing structure, you also have to add a View, a Controller, and an Interface and implementation class for the Repository (The latter not strictly necessary, but it is if you want to match Kentico's internal classes' structure.)
            Obviously the View and Controller will need to be customized, but a lot of it (the files themselves, the class definitions and using statements, the constructors for the Controller, etc) are going to be boilerplate.
            Ideally, this would be via something like a zip…

              • 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.

                • attributes

                  Form fields could use a flexible "additional attributes" field, which would allow users to add whatever attributes they'd like. Following a syntax like the style attribute, a user could add this, for example: "placeholder:Email Address;", and then your server-side code could split and parse the name/value pair into the input field.

                  • Add WebP support to the ImageHelper class

                    When creating image variants, it would be great if we could also convert images to WebP.

                    While WebP isn't universally supported, the <picture> tag could be used to offer it as an option to browsers that do support it, reducing page load.

                    • Search the entire Media Library and all sub-folders

                      Is there a way to do a Global search in Media Library?
                      I.e. when at the root folder, do a search that will find all the images in all subfolders?
                      e.g. If I want to find all the "achill" images that are in the Media Library and I go to the root folder and search for "achill" -> no images are found
                      I need to search each folder individually, so if I go to the sub-folder and search for "achill" => I find all the "achill" images in the folder
                      Searching the entire Media Library and all subfolders

                      • Allow multiple category selection in listing and datasource webparts

                        When using a repeater webpart for instance you can only select 1 category. Same is true if you use a documents datasource or a hierarchical viewer webpart. The API allows you to pass in multiple categories when doing a document or object query but we do not have this same ability to do so with any of the out of the box controls.

                        I come across this use case in roughly every other site build. Unfortunately, it isn't available so we end up performing a no-so-fantastic work around by using the API to get what is needed vs. using OOTB…

                        • Allow Editor Stylesheet to link to an external file

                          The Css editor for stylesheets is very limited as an editor. As a result, we keep our editor-styles.less with our other .less files and compile it ourselves.

                          Then, I need to open the Kentico CMS and copy the contents of editor-styles.css into the Kentico Editor and save there. Then go back and check the changes.

                          It would be great if we could link to an existing file like we can for webpart files for example.

                          • Bulk upload of files into content tree

                            We had a client who wanted to assign per-file and per-folder permissions in their site. Initially we tried to use media galleries, but permissions on those can only be assigned at the gallery (root folder) level.

                            As a work-around, we looked at using the content tree, but the inability to upload files in bulk was a deal breaker there. We ended up solving the problem by using multiple media libraries and just organizing the documents in a way where we could assign permissions by library.

                            It would be great if you guys could allow files to be bulk-uploaded to the…

                            • Allow "content only" pages to be converted to standard pages and vice versa

                              During development we made a decision to create certain page types as "Content Only" pages.

                              Unfortunately, later in development a decision was made to include a detail pages for these page types and therefore they need to be changed to standard page types.

                              Please add the ability to convert between the two types, otherwise the "risk/reward" balance means there is little point in using "content only" page types.

                              • Remove Tilde from URLs for MVC

                                Currently, when you create an HTML field in Kentico and then render it into a view on an MVC site, it appends a tilde (~) to the start of any relative URL path.

                                This causes links to break and according to Kentico Support this is the expected behavior.

                                It seems like there should be an option to remove the tilde.

                                This is in reference to Support Ticket #0094000107.

                                • Limit Widgets allowed in Widget Zone

                                  Very simple, would be great to be allowed to limit what types of widgets are allowed in Widget zones. This way we can place a widget zone and allow specific widgets in there only (like a footer link widget in the footer area, or a header link widget, etc).

                                  Would be relatively simple. Add a widget class selector field to a Webpart zone that's set to be a Widget zone, then have the Widget selector filter the available widgets based on that.

                                    we are exploring the options on how to limit widgets that can be added to various zones that are available to content editors on the whole web.

                                    Limiting widgets per zone is one of the most considered options.

                                    (Please note that the main focus is on the MVC devleopment model)

                                    If you have any suggestions on what possibilities to limit widgets you would appreciate, please leave a comment below!

                                  • Get files url with native extensions (image.jpg and not image.aspx)

                                    We need to be able to get the files url with native extensions example ****/image.jpg and not .aspx.
                                    we need this to be used with third party sites, for example we are not able to share an image using Facebook as it sees it as a webpage and not an image, so it doesn't generate preview for it.
                                    In the other hand we are facing the same issue with a 3rd party pdf viewer that we are using.

                                    So allowing the developer to access the url with the native extension will be a great help.

                                    thank you

                                      Hello to all supporters!

                                      We are currently looking for a way how to move forward with this idea.

                                      Currently, Kentico should generate correct extensions (.jpg, .png, …) when you turn on extensionless URLs and use the runAllManagedModulesForAllRequests.

                                      https://docs.kentico.com/display/K9/Extensionless+and+custom+URLs

                                      1. Did you run into scenarios, where this setup did not work for you? Could you help us by providing examples?

                                      2. Is setting the runAllManagedModulesForAllRequests web.config key fine for your solutions? If not, can you share some comments?

                                      Thanks a lot in advance!

                                    • MVC + Portal Model (Widgets)

                                      I would have like to start using MVC with Kentico since the company I work for prefers MVC pattern over Web Forms. However after talking to Kentico support we found out you can not use the portal model with MVC.

                                      Is this functionaility planned for any feature release or part of Kentico 8?

                                        Hello!

                                        We are currently trying to come up with the best model for enabling Content editors and Marketers to compose parts of pages using widgets also on MVC websites.

                                        What do you think about the following:

                                        1. The most important part is to enable business users (Content editors, Marketers) to add and configure components (widgets) in within specific areas (zones) on a page

                                        2. MVC developers know how to create layoyuts/templates and can do that on their onw, only need to be able to mark part of the layout as a widget area/zone

                                        3. MVC developers know how to implement reusable components. If there is a unified way to register such components with Kentico to be used in widget areas, there is no need to develop hundreds of out-of-the-box widgets.

                                        4. The biggest wish for Content editors and Marketersis to be able to influence a section of a specific page,…

                                      • Neutral cultures and a default fallback culture

                                        Currently you have only one default culture available in Kentico. This option isn't usually sufficient for global web portals, containing content for multiple different languages. Here is the scenario. Let’s have the neutral cultures DE (German), English (EN) and Spanish (ES). Now, these languages can have country (region) specific translations:
                                        Neutral language EN:
                                        EN-US
                                        EN-UK
                                        EN-AU
                                        Neutral language DE:
                                        DE-DE
                                        DE-AT
                                        DE-LU
                                        Neutral language ES:
                                        ES-AR
                                        ES-CO
                                        ES-CR
                                        If you now create some content section, which looks like this, with the content translated into languages in the brackets:

                                        News folder
                                        -News1 (de-de, en-uk)
                                        -News2 (de-lu, es-ar)
                                        -News3 (de-de, de-at, en-us) …

                                        • Media Library, set and remember 'Items per page' for Pagination

                                          1. Set and Remember 'Items per page' preferences (in Media Library / per User).

                                          Currently when we change the items per page settings in Media Library, we can go to other folders in the Media Library and the # of items is remembered correctly.
                                          When exiting and re-entering the Media Library, it defaults back to 10.

                                          We would like to have a persistent setting of 100, possibly per user.

                                          2. Respect the cms.config AppSettings CMSDefaultListingPageSize everywhere in pages/pop-ups that have pagination.

                                          Currently, it seems to affect the Paging application and the amount of results there, yet the pagination in e.g.…
