  1. Share preview link without context of editor

    When an editor shares a preview link, the user receiving that link will be signed in as the editor sharing the link.

    This is not desired because navigating to for instance profile pages would share personal details.

    An easy fix would be adding a "preview-user", which could be selected in the settings.

    Since K12 it is not possible anymore to simply remove the user from the preview url.

  2. 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.

  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. Set hotkey to open live site instead of 2 clicks as now

    Add a hotkey such as Ctrl+F1, Ctrl+F2 to open live site mode instead of click "Application list" -> Live site

  5. Add an option to have MVC widget property dialogs open automatically when placing on page

    When placing a MVC widget into a section, and the widget has a properties dialog with required fields, it would be sensible to open the widget configuration dialog automatically.

    Currently, it does not open and a content editor will see incomplete results on the page, or could save the page without adding these properties in. If the widget has properties, especially required properties, open the widget dialog by default. Or, add a WidgetController property/setting to designate whether this behavior should occur.

  6. 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.

  7. 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…

  8. 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

  9. 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

  11. 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.

  13. 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.…

  14. Have the Banners module updated to make sure it stages all of its fields

    The Banner Module currently does not stage correctly and does not stage 2 fields that are essential to a banners function.
    "BannerHitsLeft", "BannerClicksLeft"
    Without these fields, the banners do not function correctly

  15. Media Library search of file title and file description

    When keyword searching a media library, the search only searches the file name. It would be very helpful to have the search also look at the file title and file description fields that can be set on the file.

  16. 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…

  17. 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.

  18. Image Attachment Variant Selector

    Would be very cool if I could select a specific variant generated for an image attachment in the editable image component.

    Currently only the root attachment (no variants) are selectable.

    Content editors often can't add a simple "&variant=myvariant" to the image link, because they are not doing "programming" :-)

  19. Add Progress on Continuous Integration Restore

    If you are processing a very large set of CI items, the CI restore looks like it's just sitting there, taking upwards of an hour depending on how large your data set it. It would be great to have a % progresses indication so we don't think it's just frozen and cancel it.

    As it stands, can't use CI for sites with 10's of thousands of data objects.

  20. Media Selector For Multiple Assets

    For example: I have PDFs/Images for a product that I need to pick multiple items to show in a side bar or carousel. I could use multiple attachments but doing so will require constantly uploading and items may become outdated which becomes an issue if there is multple pages that have these resources.

    Regards,
    Frank N
