  1. 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…

  3. Add support for Canonical Link Element

    In addition to "Redirect document aliases to main URL," (formerly a web.config appSettings directive), I'd like to see an option for "Use Canonical Link Element."

    With that option, the URL alias would be honored and persist in the address bar, but an indication of the actual URL would be made as a canonical link element in the <head>:

    <link rel="canonical" href=" http://www.example.com/Actual-Url "/>

  4. improved rating and support / voting system

    allow rating of items (pictures, video, blogs, text, ...) based on various definable categories (e.g. technical quality, artistic quality, humor, ...). allow support for expressed opinions, much like here.

  5. Add "reset to default" button to widget properties pop-up

    When setting default values to widget properties that are hidden, there is no way to reset the property value if the widget default values are changed.

    For example, when adding 10 instances of a widget, they will have the hidden field values set as defined in the widget properties.
    If the default values are then changed, all 10 instances of the widget need to be removed and re-added to the pages.

    By introducing a "reset to default" button, the hidden field values (or all field values) could be "refreshed", without the need to re-add the widget.

  6. HTML Minified

    Now only CSS and JavaScript files can control to minified.

    Kentico Should add one more feature so that the hrml also can be minified.

    Thanks.

  7. Allow recurring payment option for payment using existing gateway

    The payment gateway options available in Kentico do not have the capability to make a particular transaction as recurring.
    We have membership as a product, and want to give option to user to auto-renew it on completion. At the moment, we have an alert mail that can be sent X number of days prior to completion of membership, and ask user to make another payment.
    Authorize.Net have this option.
    Authorize.Net is available as a payment option with Kentico. It would be nice if one order can have the option to make the payment recurring.

    Hello

    How do you currently implement recurring donations or membership renewal?

    Is there a common scenario for the membership renewal? e.g. Purchaser will buy a membership/donate, and after a year an email will be sent to this Purchaser with new billing info and payment link or confirmation that a recurring payment was made?

    Kind Regards

  8. 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…

  9. SASS Support for Editor

    The text editor in Kentico 8 supports a lot of different languages and markup, but it'd be nice if it supported SASS.

    Everything I've read points to SASS being more prominent than LESS, and with the ability to create a CSS Preprocesser the most limiting part is that the editor makes a mess of the colors when trying to use SASS syntax.

  11. Marketplace improvement

    I think, that a lot of partners would appreciate some marketpalece improvements.

    1. Marketplace looks very old and has poor promotion from your side.
    2. Full text search missing. I alway have problem to find particular thing.
    3. Filtering by vendor would be nice.
    4. Kentico version like 4.0 are obsolete. No one would be loking for it.

    Thanks

  12. Truly clean minimum install

    It would be awesome to have the ability to install a minimum install WITHOUT the media libraries, templates, page types, etc. that are in the installer for the starter sites. These files, etc. should only be included if you select the starter site that needs them.

  13. Have a setting to require content editors to enter alternate text for all images.

    All images on a site should have their alternate text property set for accessibility reasons. There should be a setting that requires editors to set the alternate text property for all images.

  14. Integrate Newsletter subscription with Biz Forms

    It would be great if we could integrate into a Biz Form a check box that a user checks to indicate that they want to receive the site newsletter.

    This means a user filling in a for can subscribe in the one place instead of then having to go and subscribe to the Newsletter separately.

    Thanks

    Hello!

    In order to inspect this suggestion further, could you share few comments?

    What is the most common scenario? A simple check box with a predefined specific newsletter?

    Should the subscription be avilable only after the complete form is filled and sent?

    What do you think of the currently available solution – creating a Marketing Automation process, which is triggered by a form submission, can check if a specific checkbox is checked and based on this subscribes the contact to a newsletter?

  15. Event Booking Registration

    Extend Event Booking form design with Online Forms and Workflow. Allow registered user to register event without entering information that is already in their profiles like name,email, and address. However, they need to enter details like logging, food allergy or food according to their religion prohibit, hotel, payment method (online or wire transfer), payment through payment gateway, etc. Event admin could manage and see reporting of events an booking

  16. Rewrite web parts and widgets with responsive design in mind

    Many of the standard web parts that require width and height entries only accept fixed pixel entries (eg. image and text web parts, Google maps, etc.). It would be great if one could enter percentages as well.

  17. Preview pages in CMSDesk as "not authenticated" or as a selected other role.

    With permissions, security or web part settings some pages can look different to different users. When logged in as Administrator, If you want to view a page and see what it looks like to people that haven't logged in, you can't unless you log out. Logging out logs you out of CMSDesk too, so you have to log back in again to make an amend.

    Also you can't easily confirm "edit", "delete", "add new" buttons are only showing to the right users because Global Administrator sees everything all the time.

    I would like to have view options in the preview…

  18. Add scrollWheel property to Google Maps (and more if possible)

    The current Google Maps webpart does its thing, but does not include all the possible options you set onto a google-map.
    Most of the options currently available are the options you'll generally use, but it is missing one. An that is a very important one imo, and that option is: scrollWheel.

    The scrollWheel option allow you to enable/disable zooming with the scrollwheel of your mouse. This is a boolean and defaults to true.
    Nowadays, it is more common to have map element on a page that is so big that it can span the entire page. If you, in such…

  19. Search the entire Media Library and all sub-folders

    Is there a way to do a Global search in Media Library?
    I.e. when at the root folder, do a search that will find all the images in all subfolders?
    e.g. If I want to find all the "achill" images that are in the Media Library and I go to the root folder and search for "achill" -> no images are found
    I need to search each folder individually, so if I go to the sub-folder and search for "achill" => I find all the "achill" images in the folder
    Searching the entire Media Library and all subfolders
