  1. Access to global modules for non global administrators

    Can you please allow application of UI Permissions to global modules so they can be accessed by non global administrator users? A typical use case - an editor periodically creates a new website (there is an unlimited website licence) from pre developed website templates. They need access to the Sites App, but they cannot get it unless they are made global administrators, which is against security practices.

    • Better error message for invalid license in MVC sites

      When creating an MVC project and using an invalid or expired license, the mvc application is showing a 503.0 error. There should be a friendly message to guide you to look at the Event Log application. Also, the message in the log should be in Error state instead of Warning to really catch your eyes. An invalid or expired license is preventing the application from running, so for example, if we have cron jobs that look for error types and send emails, we won't catch that error in production if the filter is for Error only.

      • Media Library search of file title and file description

        When keyword searching a media library, the search only searches the file name. It would be very helpful to have the search also look at the file title and file description fields that can be set on the file.

        • Automatically generate MVC View/Controller/Repository boilerplate

          Currently, Kentico will allow automatic generation of the Model based on page types.
          However, in order to match Kentico's existing structure, you also have to add a View, a Controller, and an Interface and implementation class for the Repository (The latter not strictly necessary, but it is if you want to match Kentico's internal classes' structure.)
          Obviously the View and Controller will need to be customized, but a lot of it (the files themselves, the class definitions and using statements, the constructors for the Controller, etc) are going to be boilerplate.
          Ideally, this would be via something like a zip…

          • Preview in New Tab

            Preview mode shows the site in a smaller window. I generally like to open a new tab to see the rendered page. Editors with limited exposure to Kentico don't always know that they can do this.
            I thought it would be a good option to add the extra option to open a page in a new tab (via a rollover option that appears under the Preview button perhaps?).
            This accomplishes 2 things: It provides a full site view of a page, and secondly, it provides the full display of the url that can be copied. I would find it useful…

            • Don't set height via style in image editor

              When resizing an image in the image editor set the height and width properties as attributes not with the style tag. when you set the height and width it makes it difficult to make the image resize automatically with the browser.

              • Image Attachment Variant Selector

                Would be very cool if I could select a specific variant generated for an image attachment in the editable image component.

                Currently only the root attachment (no variants) are selectable.

                Content editors often can't add a simple "&variant=myvariant" to the image link, because they are not doing "programming" :-)

                • Add Progress on Continuous Integration Restore

                  If you are processing a very large set of CI items, the CI restore looks like it's just sitting there, taking upwards of an hour depending on how large your data set it. It would be great to have a % progresses indication so we don't think it's just frozen and cancel it.

                  As it stands, can't use CI for sites with 10's of thousands of data objects.

                  • Media Selector For Multiple Assets

                    For example: I have PDFs/Images for a product that I need to pick multiple items to show in a side bar or carousel. I could use multiple attachments but doing so will require constantly uploading and items may become outdated which becomes an issue if there is multple pages that have these resources.

                    Frank N

                    • Fix hyperlink bug & inability to add a photo caption in CKEditor

                      The university I work at uses recently updated to v10 and shortly after we noticed that after about 5 minutes of working in kentico, you can no longer add in hyperlinks. The window either loads forever or it loads a blank page making it impossible to add the link without using a silly work around - links should be a straightforward process.

                      Lukas from Kentico told us "I discussed this with our Product Owner - unfortunately CKEditor will not be upgraded in Kentico 12 and currently there are no plans for upgrading it in any feature version. I am really…

                      • Repeater/Viewers Having Generic filters apply to datasource not just path

                        When a repeater or a Viewer is given a path you can add filters like where, order by, class names. You should be able to do that even if a datasource was provided. All the filters can easily be applied to a data source. It would also allow generic Datasources to be made for a page and then used for several items. This way it would help reduce calls to the DB.

                        • Digital Asset Management

                          Upload assets in bulk, assign them multiple metadata and then have them displayed quickly/easily through out the site using repeaters which specifically target the list of metadata.

                          Example:
                          Upload a photo of a tree.

                          Meta data on characteristics of image: Tree, Apple, In Bloom, Backyard, Sunset Tree

                          Meta data on photograph: rights managed, photographer, date, price, limitations.

                          Meta data on access/sites/access: Allowed on intranet, not allowed on external.

                          Just standard DAM functionality. Seems like a popular module. It would make managing images in the Media Library a whole lot easier to manage too.

                            • 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…

                              • Storing Cache Data in Redis instead of Server Memory

                                It would be nice if you could have the cache stored in Redis cache. IT would help prevent the server memory from getting large similar to file storage. Also, if using a Web Farm it would provide a way to store the cache in a centralized location.

                                    • Form list view - add timestamp for latest submission

                                      When you look at the list of your forms the only information you are given is the Form Name and the number of Entries. As our forms rarely have an expiration, I would also like to see a timestamp for the last submission to each form (the column labelled "Form inserted" in the Recorded data view). This means at a glance I would be able to tell which forms had recent activity and which ones haven't.

                                      • 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).

                                        • Add functionality to use Shift to select multiple items in a list

                                          On a page like Staging, when I want to select 10 items out of a 20 item list, I can't click the first item and then use the Shift button on my keyboard and click the last item to select them all at once.

                                          Instead I have to click 10 times to individually select each one.

                                          You do have the option of clicking the box to select the entire list, but if I want to highlight one chunk out of a big list, I can't do it quickly or efficiently without clicking every single individual item.

                                          This is a very…
