    I am glad to announce that improved support for Responsive images management is part of Kentico 10!

    You can get Kentico 10 from http://www.kentico.com/download-demo

    Our Dancing Goat demo site includes sample usage of variants and filters its Articles section.

    You can find the full documentation for Responsive images management at: https://docs.kentico.com/k10/developing-websites/managing-responsive-images

  2. Add support for HTML5 input types

    Please add support for html5 input types such as:

    type=datetime, email, number, tel, url, etc
    

    Currently, the kentico textboxes only support single-line, multi-line and password. Trying to create form controls that utilize any of the other textmode types (such as phone, email, number, datetime, url etc, etc) does not work.

    This will improve UX, particularly when filling out forms on mobile platforms, and is requested more and more often.

  3. Add a setting to disable preview mode globally

    Currently, when you're logged in as an admin and visit your Kentico site (just as a non-authenticated user would), you are shown by default Preview Mode, which shows unpublished items as if they were published. There are a number of ways to get out of this mode and see the site as a typical user would (go into CMS Desk and click "Live Site", click "close" on the grey bar on top of the screen, edit your cookies, etc). But none of these are permanent or able to be set up for an installation globally.
    I propose adding a new…

    Hello to all supporters!

    I am glad to let you know that the following setting has been added:

    Allow preview mode on the live site
    (https://docs.kentico.com/display/K10/Settings+-+Content+management)

    Simply unchecking it for a website or globally on your development instance will let you bypass the preview mode.

    On production environments, you can still keep it checked for your editors.

    Thanks for all the comments and votes,

    David Komarek
    Product Owner

  4. As an admin, let me see a users recent history

    We have to fix users mistakes, i'd like to see the last (as many as needed) steps they did.

  5. Add .svg files to app_themes folder

    Allow upload of .svg file to the app_themes folder. This will be very practical with the push toward mobile and use of .svg icons/images related to the CSS all in one folder.

  6. Copy Document Type

    Sometimes a document is CLOSE to what I want but not exactly what I need. I don't want to modify the existing document type or muddy the waters by adding irrelevant transformations and fields so I have to create a brand new document resembling the old one.

    It would ne nice to copy the document and then be able to change whatever I need to at that point.

    From version 7 you can clone most of the CMS objects. You can also inherit the document types.

  7. Compare servers

    It would be good to be able to compare 2 CMS environments to highlight the differences between development and configuration differences stored in Kentico CMS.

    Specifically to compare: Page Templates, Layouts, Custom and System tables, Email templates etc.

  8. Multiple viewengines

    Allow multiple viewengines (like ASP.MVC) so it is possible to create pages for mobile browsers (iPhone etc).

  9. Translation Tagging / Reporting

    It would be good if:
    1) Pages could be marked "Please translate into [Language]". This would be handy in cases where only a subset of content is relevent for another language.

    2) Need a report which lists ALL content for translation or which has changed in the origianl language (not just an overview of one level of nodes).

  10. MVC + Portal Model (Widgets)

    I would have like to start using MVC with Kentico since the company I work for prefers MVC pattern over Web Forms. However after talking to Kentico support we found out you can not use the portal model with MVC.

    Is this functionaility planned for any feature release or part of Kentico 8?

  11. Enhanced smartsearch filter, with resultcount per filter

    The facetted search should be extended with an option to show the number of results per filter item. (ListControls)

    When one of the filter items is clicked, these numbers should change, and if the number of results would be zero, the listitem (eg. checkbox) should be disabled.

    Items which return no results at all (at !IsPostback), should be removed at all.

    For instance:
    Category
    [ ] Financial (1)
    [ ] Marketing (3)
    [ ] Web (1)

    Document type
    [ ] Download (2)
    [ ] News (3)
    [ ] Product (4)

    When filter changes:

    Category
    [x] Financial (1)
    [ ] Marketing…

  12. Start API redesign with unit testing in mind

    I am working on a Class Library project to support ASPX development. I need to be able to unit test the code I write. I also need to write integration tests that hit the database.

    It seems impossible... I don't understand how you could have created 60 assemblies and manage to have dependencies all over the place, but you sure did.

    Working with a database connection alone spans over 3 or 4 assemblies, with multiple hardcoded dependencies and 'providers' that are not providers (since you can't change them), and reinventions of classes that have been in the .NET BCL since…

    Kentico 8 introduced a big change in this area so I’m closing this idea as completed. Please see more information in the comments.

  13. More control over culture specific URLs

    We should be able to define site-wide culture specific URLs, like /en/xxx or /fr/xxx. These settings must then be automatically inherited on all child elements.

    At the moment you can automatically create culture specific URL path, but these are not very nice and are not inherited.

  14. Limit Widgets allowed in Widget Zone

    Very simple, would be great to be allowed to limit what types of widgets are allowed in Widget zones. This way we can place a widget zone and allow specific widgets in there only (like a footer link widget in the footer area, or a header link widget, etc).

    Would be relatively simple. Add a widget class selector field to a Webpart zone that's set to be a Widget zone, then have the Widget selector filter the available widgets based on that.

  16. LINQ interface to the content tree, custom document types, custom tables, everything!

  17. Versioning of Page Templates, Layouts and Document Types

    We would really like to see the ability to check out and version page templates and layouts. When editing a page template, there is no easy way to undo changes that have been made or prevent two users from updating the same template at the same time. In addition, there is no way to roll back changes on a template or rollback a page to a previous version of a page using a previous template. We use a lot of custom templates and have often accidentally updated a page template and temporarily lost data or had to recreate templates. We…

  18. More discount options

    For example volume discounts that can be allocated to multiple products (think mix and match volume discount). Also, a discount that applies to one product when another product is purchased.

    This idea was implemented and you can try it in Kentico 8.

    Read our article to find out how new flexible discounts and promotions can help you boost your sales : http://devnet.kentico.com/articles/sell-more-with-highly-flexible-discounts-and-promotions. We are looking forward to your feedback!

    PS: Please note, that “Buy X, Get Y” discounts were not delivered as a part of this improvement so we created a new idea you can support: http://ideas.kentico.com/forums/239189-kentico-product-ideas/suggestions/5744083--buy-x-get-y-and-buy-1-get-1-discounts

  19. Support for SKU size/colour etc options

    Currently the Ecommerce module 'product options' do not work for clothing (and other retail) ecommerce sites that require size/colour type options (or other combinations) with a SKU and stock for each and size/colour combination.

  20. Support for Google Tag Manager

    Tag Management is important so marketing staff can implement tracking code, and other marketing code, without having to mess with the template on the website.

    Google Tag Manager (like other tag management software) creates a 'container' for marketing staff to set up necessary tracking code without bothering developers, or messing up the main code.

    Google Tag Manager (GTM) is free, and incredibly useful for advanced online marketers needing to implement and update tracking codes in an agile environment.
