  1. Single admin application for multiple MVC sites

    Right now, if you have multiple production MVC sites, you are forced to also have multiple instances of the CMS admin application, even if the sites share a single database. This appears to be a legacy carryover of the implementation where the customer-facing production site and the admin interface were a single site sharing a hostname (the awful WordPress model.) This creates a lot of management overhead. Imagine a scenario with 10 sites. They are likely to have many overlapping users, roles and objects. Kentico is already designed to handle this scenario, except that it also requires 10 CMS instances…

  2. Add site(s) assigned to column under Users

    If you have more than one site on a Kentico instance, it would nice to see what site or sites a user was assigned to in the list of users in the Users Application.

  3. After changing site selector do not allow content changes - modal window?

    When you switch the site selector, the change APPEARS to have taken place (site dropdown displays the ‘new’ site), but if you watch the status bar, you can see that the request is still waiting for a response. Some of our users don’t realize this, and if they’re really quick with whatever they’re doing, they might be changing settings on the original site. Then, all of a sudden, the page switches with the correct site now showing, and them wonder the heck just happened. We're running into this more and more as users are becoming more familiar with making changes…

  4. Visibility setting for widget properties and other means to make widget property settings dynamic

    Currently it is not possible to have a visibility condition for widget properties in MVC widgets.

    It is also not possible to dynamically add property-attributes based on code.

    In case where I have a checkbox to have a slightly modified version of the same widget I want to have extra fields appear (similar to how that is possible for the form builder or page fields)

  5. More fine-grained control options for MVC Page Builder section configuration

    MVC Page Builder section properties in the K12 Service Pack were an extremely welcome addition. Good job on that, y'all!

    Unfortunately, it seems like section properties are really only set up with two options for editing:

    1.) Form Components in the stock configuration dialog - Super limited, with no lifecycle management. Need to manage a little bit of state, then safely release that resource for garbage collection when the configuration dialog closes? Whoops, just going to have to live with that memory leak!

    2.) Modal Dialogs - Heavy handed, one-size fits all solution that inhibit ease of feature discovery (opening…

  6. Default Country setting

    One of the most annoying things is during checkout when a user is completeing an address, when it comes to the country, as we are a UK based provider, the users has to scroll down the list to find the county.

    Ideally in e-commerce settings the default country should be a selection, so when the user visitis the page, its the 1st in the list.

  9. Allow custom view engines in K12 MVC

    In MVC one of the key extensibility points is the abiltiy to create a custom View Engine.

    This is most often achieved by implementing a new View Engine class that inherits from RazorViewEngine - thereby retaining all of Razor's functionality but allowing the MVC developer to specify new or additional locations for Views and Layouts.

    This gives developers the ability to create multi-site MVC instances as well as sites that contain different themes.

    Per support case 0087006336 it appears that Kentico has made the custom View Engine that they use in Kentico 12 MVC "internal", preventing the end developer from…

  10. Allow A/B and Multivariant tests in MVC without the page-builder

    I'd suggest that you allow new tests to be created "ad-hoc" in the CMS "A/B Tests" application.

    The CMS user should be able to define a list of variant names within an ad-hoc test. These will be the variants.

    Then in the MVC application Layout & Views something like this should be possible...

    if(@Html.Kentico().ABTest("MyTestCodename").Variant == "MyVariantName"){
    // Add or change markup based on variant in use
    }

    Additionally, having the ability to do log conversions against the current variant from within the controller would be required.

    The segmentation options should still be available in the CMS UI.

  11. Offers macro rule to compare list price to SKUPrice

    Working with retail and e-commerce business often the offers modules don't provide an option to set conditions for order discounts and product discounts.

    For example, when a sale is in progress, often clients want to exclude products where an price reduction is already applied to a product and its items. I had considered using a status setting to handle this, however the status of a product is only set at the product level and not the item/variant level, also, it can be the case that certain items/variants of a product can have a different price!

    My suggestion would be to…

  12. Allow unpublished page versions to be synchronized

    Currently, only published page versions (i.e. a major version, such as v1.0, v2.0, etc.) can be synchronized to a target server. When the current working version is a minor version (such as v0.7 or v1.3) and the content is synchronized, only the last major version is synchronized, which means that no changes made since the content was last published will be synchronized. If the content has not yet reached v1.0, the original version (v0.1) is published. Also, setting a Publish From date to some point in the future and clicking the Publish button does not promote the content to a…

  13. Add back button on all the wizards that have multiple steps(e.g. new custom table wizard)

    as title says. for example if you go to step 2 after completing step 1 in new custom table wizard and you go back, to continue to step 2 you then have to go to custom tables and then edit the table because you can't click next - it gives an error that the code name already exists. So a back button that remembers the state would be a good idea in my opinion.

  14. 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.

  16. Add the capability to add links/icons to the dashboard that take the user to a page created outside of the CMS.

    I have users who need to be able to add content to the CMS from a mobile platform. I would like to see you add the capability to add a shortcut presented as a links or icons to the dashboard. The link/icon shortcut would take the user to a page created outside of the CMS. This allows us to provide a custom view to users for mobile and improves the mobile experience.

  17. 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'.…

  18. Enhance Google Recaptcha v2 language option

    Currently the code force to use 2 iso language code to form the Google Recaptcha API instead of referring to https://developers.google.com/recaptcha/docs/language for actual code. I could not change it due to the fact that I did not purchase a source code license. Need the flexibility to bypass that hardcoded incorrect method.
