  1. Get files url with native extensions (image.jpg and not image.aspx)

    We need to be able to get the files url with native extensions example ****/image.jpg and not .aspx.
    we need this to be used with third party sites, for example we are not able to share an image using Facebook as it sees it as a webpage and not an image, so it doesn't generate preview for it.
    In the other hand we are facing the same issue with a 3rd party pdf viewer that we are using.

    So allowing the developer to access the url with the native extension will be a great help.

    thank you

    Hello to all supporters!

    We are currently looking for a way how to move forward with this idea.

    Currently, Kentico should generate correct extensions (.jpg, .png, …) when you turn on extensionless URLs and use the runAllManagedModulesForAllRequests.

    https://docs.kentico.com/display/K9/Extensionless+and+custom+URLs

    1. Did you run into scenarios, where this setup did not work for you? Could you help us by providing examples?

    2. Is setting the runAllManagedModulesForAllRequests web.config key fine for your solutions? If not, can you share some comments?

    Thanks a lot in advance!

  2. 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,…

  3. Neutral cultures and a default fallback culture

    Currently you have only one default culture available in Kentico. This option isn't usually sufficient for global web portals, containing content for multiple different languages. Here is the scenario. Let’s have the neutral cultures DE (German), English (EN) and Spanish (ES). Now, these languages can have country (region) specific translations:
    Neutral language EN:
    EN-US
    EN-UK
    EN-AU
    Neutral language DE:
    DE-DE
    DE-AT
    DE-LU
    Neutral language ES:
    ES-AR
    ES-CO
    ES-CR
    If you now create some content section, which looks like this, with the content translated into languages in the brackets:

    News folder
    -News1 (de-de, en-uk)
    -News2 (de-lu, es-ar)
    -News3 (de-de, de-at, en-us) …

  4. Media Library, set and remember 'Items per page' for Pagination

    1. Set and Remember 'Items per page' preferences (in Media Library / per User).

    Currently when we change the items per page settings in Media Library, we can go to other folders in the Media Library and the # of items is remembered correctly.
    When exiting and re-entering the Media Library, it defaults back to 10.

    We would like to have a persistent setting of 100, possibly per user.

    2. Respect the cms.config AppSettings CMSDefaultListingPageSize everywhere in pages/pop-ups that have pagination.

    Currently, it seems to affect the Paging application and the amount of results there, yet the pagination in e.g.…

  5. 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.

  7. Provide 'where used' and link checking functionality

    For users it is extremely hard to keep track of links, pages and images.
    Especially when the content tree or medialibrary needs to be restructured.

    I know there is already funtionality which creates aliasses automatically, but in the end that is not a real solution.

    So it would be great if you could see where a specific document or medialibrary-item is used.
    This could be done by analyzing the html which comes from the fckeditor.

    It would also be great if some kind of periodically link checking would be done, so the users get notified if there are any broken…

  8. 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.

  9. Have the Banners module updated to make sure it stages all of its fields

    The Banner Module currently does not stage correctly and does not stage 2 fields that are essential to a banners function.
    "BannerHitsLeft", "BannerClicksLeft"
    Without these fields, the banners do not function correctly

  10. 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…

  11. 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.

  12. 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" :-)

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

    Regards,
    Frank N

  15. 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…

  16. 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.

  18. 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…

  20. Live URL visible in Properties/URL

    During the changes with the field Path or pattern (Properties/URL) it would be nice to see LiveURL immediately in the same window. There is necessary to have another browser tab (with Properties/General) or anonymous window (with the page) open
