  1. Custom table description

    It would be nice if you there could be a text description for a custom table. This could be displayed at the top of the table data list to describe the purpose of the table, or to give instructions for data entry.

    I'm thinking this could be either an additional field under a custom table's "General" settings, or an alternative form (with a custom layout containing only text) using a reserved keyword (like 'filter','insert','update' or 'newculture')

    • Kentico MVC Content Only Pages URL Pattern Field Added into New Page Type Wizard

      The New Page Type Wizard asks in Step 2 if you are creating Content Only Page Types. If you check this checkbox, nothing else changes in the Wizard for the remaining 5 steps and it is very easy to forget that the URL Pattern field of the Content Only Page Type should be filled in for MVC sites.

      Suggestion: If the Content Only Page Type is checked in step 2, dynamically show a field that allows you to enter in the URL pattern right then and there (as an optional field).

      • Make it possible to use an existing Resource String in the form builder

        If you want to use an existing resource string in for example a label in the form builder, the option is disabled. There is no setting or option to enable it for any role. This looks like a bug, since the option is build in there, but disabled. This is weird and should be fixed a.s.a.p.

        • 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 It looks out-of-date on the new screens with high resolution.

          • Add a field within the Form tab for a 'Review Date' and extend Outdated Pages app

            Within regulated markets our clients are requesting the ability to trigger notifications / workflows for content which needs to be reviewed rather than unpublish. Currently the only way to achieve this is to use the Outdated Pages app or develop a custom scheduled task. This could be extended with content for review and also trigger a notification email. This would be great to build into the core of the project given the enterprise reach of the product now.

            • search input search term

              Smart Search webpart should populate with the search term, if present. This makes it easily recognized that a search was performed, and if there was a typo, the user would see it within the webpart. This has become a standard in searches.

              • Site wide preview function that takes account of the date

                The existing preview function shows a page as it will appear when scheduled content goes live. As such it takes no real account of the system calendar.
                The idea therefore is to allow the user to alter a calendar offset, such that he or she can see the site as it will appear at some future date. The user would be able to role the calendar forwards to view scheduled changes as time elapses over a period in the future.
                The essential difference between this and the preview mode is that it would show the various phases, so for example…

                • Improve widget display in rich text editor

                  Editors have difficulty differentiating widgets in the rich text editor / CKEditor, especially in large amounts of content. For example, the BlogPostBody field may contain multiple instances of our "Article Image" widget, but they all appear as only an icon.

                  I don't know what the limitations are, and realize there may be efficiency issues since the lifecycle of the widget and web part have to run for the widget to display, but I'll put forward a couple solution ideas:

                  Option 1) Have "Show preview in editor" checkbox and preview dimension fields in widget instance properties. Instead of the widget thumbnail,…

                  • CSS List Menu - Additional Class Property for <ul>

                    As you know, you can add css selectors to first, last, hover, mouseout, mouseover, and even add an id to the <ul>, within the web part properties.

                    But why do you not allow css selectors to be added to the <ul>? jQuery is the only option to add classes to the <ul>.

                    Just a suggestion, since you already have so many places to add css classes. Why not on the <ul> too? Also, because of better css techniques, you don’t really need many of the other options for adding css classes, if you have a class at the top level…

                    • Ability to insert webparts/widgets in between other webparts/widgets (Not only on the bottom)

                      Hello, I'd love to see a way to add a widget above/below an already existing widget when in a widget zone on the Page tab or add a webpart above/below an already existing webpart in the Design tab. Currently, when adding a new widget or webpart to their respective zones, it is automatically placed at the end of the list. This is a hassle when a page is created with many widgets/webparts and then a click and drag is needed to place the item where it needs to go.

                      Thank you,

                      • 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…

                          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.

                                  Currently there is no record of document attachment navigation. As these files are not located in a library or a file type, they are not recorded as a navigation. This metric is important to our business as we have implemented automated PDF document production for our pages and would like to understand how often these attachments are downloaded.

                                      This would give the viewer a way to view the calendar events in the category they are interested in. Finding events and dates would become easier.

                                      • Ability to seperate email based on type to different SMTP servers

                                        Sending all mail generated from Kentico through the same (set of) SMTP server(s) is a bad idea. Why? If marketing emails result in service being throttled by the SMTP service (it happens), it also slows down delivery of transactional email.

                                        Perhaps this could be set up to send to different sub-domains e.g. mktg.example.com & store.example.com.

                                        Or email templates have a tag that is used for determining which service they get forward to.

                                        Either way, this can help to seperate not only issues when they arise, but also reporting etc.

                                        If Kentico is serious about email marketing, I think this is…

                                          Replace the "Save" button with two buttons: one that says "Publish now" and one that says "Publish later" with the ability to select a date and time for the page to publish the updates.
