  1. Update Kentico's Obsolete GeoLocation Integration to Support GeoLite2

    Kentico currently uses MaxMind's legacy GeoLite City for their free implementation for geolocation. Kentico also currently supports GeoIP Organization as a paid form of geolocation for more accurate results. Both of these are no longer supported by MaxMind and are no longer being updated. On January 2, 2019, these will be removed from their site entirely. Kentico should consider updating their integration to MaxMind's newer GeoLite2 and GeoIP2 otherwise all of their users will have no way to update their geolocation database. Over time, these databases will become less and less accurate until the built in geolocation in Kentico is…

    • MVC on Free Edition

      As of version 10 in Kentico, if a Developer wants to host a website built using Kentico CMS using MVC, they need to purchase a license for it.

      This is a barrier for developers to enter and try out Kentico CMS with MVC. Since Kentico recently announced (at the Roadshows) that MVC would become the primary development model in the next version, it makes sense to provide access to this model for new developers in that version. However as it stands, they will be forced to use one of the other, non-preferred development models (Portal, ASPX or Mixed) to evaluate…

        Hello!

        Thanks for your complete explanation of the need for MVC in the Free edition.

        This seems to be a more common requirement now when we look into MVC further and we are evaluating this change right now.

        I will keep you updated about the progress as we come closer to the next beta.

      • 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,

        • 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.

            Hello,

            we are exploring the options on how to limit widgets that can be added to various zones that are available to content editors on the whole web.

            Limiting widgets per zone is one of the most considered options.

            (Please note that the main focus is on the MVC devleopment model)

            If you have any suggestions on what possibilities to limit widgets you would appreciate, please leave a comment below!

          • 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?

              Hello!

              We are currently trying to come up with the best model for enabling Content editors and Marketers to compose parts of pages using widgets also on MVC websites.

              What do you think about the following:

              1. The most important part is to enable business users (Content editors, Marketers) to add and configure components (widgets) in within specific areas (zones) on a page

              2. MVC developers know how to create layoyuts/templates and can do that on their onw, only need to be able to mark part of the layout as a widget area/zone

              3. MVC developers know how to implement reusable components. If there is a unified way to register such components with Kentico to be used in widget areas, there is no need to develop hundreds of out-of-the-box widgets.

              4. The biggest wish for Content editors and Marketersis to be able to influence a section of a specific page,…
