  2. Add a gender neutral avatar to the standard Kentico build as the default

    Currently in a standard build the default avatar for all users is a male. This will be incorrect for 50% of the users and obviously doesn't make sense.

    It should be a gender neutral avatar and would be a really quick change to implement.

  3. The Kentico installer should do server environmental tests for compatabilty

    The Kentico installer should do basic OS, .NET, SQL Server, and IIS version testing and refuse (or at the very least, sternly warn) to complete an install of Kentico CMS.

    Recently, were were bitten by "dbo" and "db_owner" default owner differences between different versions of MS-SQL Server, which caused Kentico to fail in the most horrible ways over custom tables created by new Page Types. Much head scratching could have been avoided with a SQL Server test at install time.

  5. Support custom properties in SearchContext.CurrentSearchResults

    When developing a custom index you currently are limited in what you can store in the index. Only the default search fields are supported, but you cannot add your own custom columns to the DataRow object in SearchContext.CurrentSearchResults.

    Adding custom columns to the DataRow would be a welcome feature that is in line with way Kentico wants to approach MVC. Sometimes a simple 'Pages' index is just not enough to display data and you want to avoid doing database queries to gather more information about the search results.

    Currently for custom indexes, the DataRow is being created hardcoded (see attached…

  7. Add "Notes" field to Localization app

    Add a simple text field in the Localization app for notes about each resource string. We have a team of publishers and it would benefit them to have a place to store their notes about where each resource string is displayed.

  8. 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.

  9. Smart Search Improvements

    A code that handles populating values from "Value" field or reading from Query can be merged in the way that it reads Value first, then populate from Query. That way You can use macro to localize first dropdown option for example!
    Smart search results : access to the count of the items option would be nice.
    Implementation of the smart search filter to work over Query string would also be nice. (Not reloading, but pushing the state to the url for example, so speed is not lost...and values are checked on first load only).

  10. Exclude from search: more flexible (no index, follow, etc.)

    I can exlude a page from being indexed by search engines by selecting 'Exclude from search'. I actually sends 'two signals' to seatch engine: do not index and do not follow links on this page as well.

    I would like to see that the two are seperately selectable:
    - No index
    - No follow

  11. CSS Editor Expand/Collapse Regions

    It would be nice to have the ability to collapse regions of code in the editor to make it easier to focus on certain areas of code, and to make it easier to navigate around.

  13. Add a "User must change password on next login" checkbox to the User module

    Seems pretty straightforward. The part that might not be straightforward is that we have a group of users we manage externally and we need to have that group of users change password but the password isn't stored in Kentico but I can manage that part as long as there's a flag to check that I can reset. Yes, I could add it myself but this is a standard feature in any system that manages users.

  14. Improve predictive smart search performance

    Improve predictive smart search webpart to use a webservice http GET call instead of POST, the latter also returns viewstate on the response header which is a waste of resources. Make keypress time delay configurable too. we have to go inside the predictive js to decrease the response time which by default set to 500ms.

  16. Update integrated Captcha(s) to be state-of-the-art

    The built-in Captchas are very simple and for years now easily broken by the bots.

    In V8 there was added the "old" recaptcha - but it has a bad usability, often even human users are not able to give the correct answer.

    The only solution is to use a newer captcha from the Kentico marketplace.

    But it is usable only on forms.
    To use it as a "core captcha", you have to modify the core-code of MessageBoard Webparts, Blog Post Comment-Webpart and so on.
    This is not that easy and breaks any way the possibility to install updates/bug fixes...

    So,…

  17. Azure retry logic

    It would be great if Kentico implemented a retry logic for queries and calls. This would be especially beneficial when running on Azure because transient errors occur quite often in this kind of environment and it is strongly recommended that you should never rely on a successful finish of any operation and rather implement a retry logic instead.
