  1. 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.

  2. 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'.…

  3. Enforce password expiration to specific roles

    It would be a good idea if there is a way to enforce password expiration for users enrolled in specific roles

  4. Scroll click breadcrumbs to open new tab

    Simple as the title, currently (I am using K12) the breadcrumbs can't be opened in a new tab.

  5. Macros in Mass Email

    There have been several times when a general but personalized email needed to be sent to a group of site users. The email would need to have a personalized greeting, or some other user-specific data inserted in the body. Ideally I would be able to use the 'Mass Email' feature to select multiple users and create an email body that contains user-context macros, but this is not an option right now. These instances are pretty simple standalone cases where it would be overkill to use the online marketing messaging features.

  6. Autoresponder template

    It is very frustrating having to post common template elements for Auto responders and email notifications in Forms.
    There needs to be an option for both to choose an email template. When you have chosen the email template. In that template you specify the content render region.
    The WYSIWYG area then will render content in replace of that.

    If there is a change in logo or head design for an email for a company you currently have to go through every auto responder, notification for all forms and a few other places to update them. It is a bit silly…

  8. Customization of Widget / Inline Editor asset bundling

    Mvc widgets are great because they give both developers and content managers flexibility in features, design, and content.

    I envision developers creating Widget libraries to enable re-use of common widget patterns across sites or sharing them with the community.

    Currently the bundling process for widgets when the Mvc site is in edit-mode when configuring widgets in the CMS is very restrictive.

    I have to copy javascript/css that I copy from Github into files in my Mvc project and then commit them. This goes against the best practices of not committing build artifacts to source control.

    The javascript community has already…

  9. 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..

  10. 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…

  11. 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…

  12. Please allow salesforce sandbox conncection to be used for integration testing.

    Right now the compiled code for Salesforce authentication has "login.salesforce.com" hardcode for Oauth. Please change that to something can be changed via web.config or settings key, so developers can switch that to "test.salesforce.com" to test integration with sandbox.

  13. 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…

  14. Add 'non-Binary' to User Gender

    Currently Kentico uses an Integer to store the User Gender with the values 0 / 1 / 2 (Unknown / Male / Female / Other). Given the way things have changed can this be updated to 0 / 1 / 2 / 3 (Unknown / Male / Female / Non-Binary)

    Perhaps you can also add a UserGenderName field, so that non-binary options can be stored as text within that field. For out-of-the-box this can be left null and developers would need to implement based on their requirements.

    As an example Facebook allows at least 56 different string entries for Gender…

  16. timezone display on admin site

    Administration site does not display correct time (as set in timezone settings) except few places like Pages and Reports.

    This must work across the board.
    For example EventLog and Users last login timestamps are useless without being converted to site's timezone.

  19. Resign macros by user/select user or identity to assign macro to

    During an upgrade you have to resign macros. It would be nice if you could resign all macros by a specific user or Identity. This way it would help prevent security issues. If there are macros that are bad from specific users you can look at them individually.

    If you are resigning macros and can select only specific macros from a user, it would be nice if you could then resign them back to that user or to a specific identity.

  20. setting to default macro to not be signed

    The setting would have the macros not be signed so they would run as the Public user. This could be an issue if working with work flows or unpublished content, as a public user would not have access to that. But for the majority of macros I think the public user would have access and it would be better security as it is being all ran as a public user.
