  1. The ability to see what webparts are using particular transformations

    It would be a welcome addition to the kentico interface to be able to see where a certain transformation is being used. This could be implemented the same way as in pages were you can see what documents are using a particular page type. This would aid in the changing of transformations so we can track of what those changes might be affecting.

  2. Disable selected users all at one time

    Add the ability to disable multiple users at once in the Users app. Currently when you select multiple users you can 'Delete' selected items. I'm looking to just disable them.
    The use case is where you want your editors disabled in your production environment but they become re-enabled through the staging of objects and data from stage environment to production environment.

  3. External Form Post

    Allow for HTTP POST of a form that just goes to an external site. I don't want to have to write any C# or bypass everything with JQUERY or other library. I just want to put method="POST" and an action="externalurl" to send my form data to.

    e.g. Salesforce Web-to-Case, Web-to-Lead other third party widget that I want to embed in my site that has nothing to do with Kentico at all.

    Sometimes, you just don't want to Forms from Kentico as the information is going to SurveyGizmo or something else. Just a simple post to a 3rd party URL where…

  4. Allow import/export of XLIFF translation files for custom resource strings in the Localization app

    Kentico allows you to define custom, translatable resource strings via the Localization application, under the Resource strings tab.

    However, it doesn't look like there's a built-in method to export those resource strings to XLIFF file(s) for translation to other cultures.

    It would be beneficial to have the ability to send XLIFF files to a translation company to translate into a new culture, and import the updated XLIFF files directly into the site, as we can currently do with pages.

  5. Add WebP support to the ImageHelper class

    When creating image variants, it would be great if we could also convert images to WebP.

    While WebP isn't universally supported, the <picture> tag could be used to offer it as an option to browsers that do support it, reducing page load.

  6. Translations correction

    Our customers are reporting wrong core translations.
    Would it be possible to make some corrections given that we would provide the list.
    See example from German culture (incorrect BREITE instead of correct JA)

  7. 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')

  8. 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).

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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…

  14. 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,…

  15. 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…

  16. 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,

  17. "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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
