  1. Improve Automatic visitor language (culture) check

    The current automatic visitor check in Kentico is not adequate enough for country's which are multilingual.

    There's a site which has got multiple cultures:
    Dutch - Belgium (www.example.com/nl-be)
    Dutch - The Netherlands (www.example.com/nl-nl)
    English - United Kingdom (www.example.com/co-uk)
    English - Zimbabwe (www.example.com/int)
    French - Belgium (www.example.com/fr-be)
    French - France (www.example.com/fr-fr)
    German - Germany (www.example.com/de-de)

    And we have set the 'vistor culture' setting on 'automatic'.
    But when I have my browser language on Dutch, and go to www.example.com the site will redirect me to www.example.com/nl-be and not…

    • 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…

      • "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.

        • Forms - Ability to use a form without the page context

          I would like to be able to use the forms sometimes without the page context. Also a direct preview (URL) would be appreciated.

          • Campaigns - URL shortener after creating a URL with the URL builder

            Give the ability to also immediately shorten a URL after the creation of it via the URL builder in Campaigns. I now use Bitly but then need to copy-paste the URL first.

            • Campaigns - ability to also select bookmarks when adding an existing page

              When using longer pages with bookmarks to focus on certain paragraphs, you want to be able to also add these as page content when selecting a page in Campaigns. Now only possible to select pages and content types.

              • Include attachments in site analytics

                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.

                  • Calendar: Make different colour codes for different departments' events. For example PSP Sports - blue; PSP REC - green; MFRC - yellow.

                    Calendar: Make different colour codes for different departments' events. For example PSP Sports - blue; PSP REC - green; MFRC - yellow; Health Promotion - orange.

                    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…

                      • The Ability Schedule Webpage Updates

                        • Social Media Icons at top of website

                          It would be nice to have our social media icons at the top of the site. Even if the icons are smaller than they currently are. I think it is important to have these links available and visible for visitors even if they do not scroll through the site. All of our competitors have this feature and I would like to see it added to our templates.

                            Unfortunatelly, if the widget is copied and placed in the content page, it lose its content. The copy has only the settings, but the content is lost.
                            Can you change this behavior?

                            • MVC on Free Edition

                              As of version 10 in Kentico, if a Developer wants to host a website built using Kentico CMS using MVC, they need to purchase a license for it.

                              This is a barrier for developers to enter and try out Kentico CMS with MVC. Since Kentico recently announced (at the Roadshows) that MVC would become the primary development model in the next version, it makes sense to provide access to this model for new developers in that version. However as it stands, they will be forced to use one of the other, non-preferred development models (Portal, ASPX or Mixed) to evaluate…

                              • improved side by side comparison view of amended text

                                it would save us a lot of time if there was a more visual way to configure the side-by-side version comparison i.e. yellow highlighting of added text, changes to documents (PDFs) added/removed (via a widget), images etc.

                                Currently we can only see changes to text through text in red or red strike-through. we can't see any changes to the formatting i.e. styling applied to headings. we have a lot of changes daily and have to troll through looking at everything

                                • Better e-commerce event hooks

                                  Currently there are only the order paid and created hooks available, and you can't use the order info events because they are triggered multiple times for each actual order update.

                                  Please as event hooks at the beginning and end of the shopping cart info provider set order (which only runs once) and also the set cart so we can more easily leverage these events across multiple plugins (since you can only create 1 custom info provider).

                                  • 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.

                                    • media library workflow & versioning

                                      Add versioning and workflow for media library items.

                                      Media libraries management is a bit limited compared to other content, to make them more usable a simple submit / approve workflow would go a long way. When you have a large number of content editors items can appear and disappear from the media library with no audit trail to understand what happened.
                                      Even just logging who uploaded an item would be helpful.

                                        • Allow use of different SMTP servers for Marketing and Transactional e-mails.

                                          Hello, every e-mail marketing expert I asked, told me that it is necessary to send Marketing and Transactional e-mails using different infrastructure. That is why I was very surprissed to find out, that Kentico does not allow to specify which SMTP servers it shoud use for Transactional and which for Marketing e-mails.
                                          Is there a chance to make it available please?
