  1. Add the ability for CSS stylesheets and Page templates to be global instead of site-specific.

    I've run into an issue where a client may want to create numerous sites on the same Kentico installation, and want all sites to have access to common CSS and Page templates. I think this currently requires updating each CSS stylesheet and Page template's list of sites that has access to it.

    It would be nice if there was an option to make a CSS stylesheet or Page template "global", so that individual sites wouldn't need to be assigned to them.

  2. Add support for Canonical Link Element

    In addition to "Redirect document aliases to main URL," (formerly a web.config appSettings directive), I'd like to see an option for "Use Canonical Link Element."

    With that option, the URL alias would be honored and persist in the address bar, but an indication of the actual URL would be made as a canonical link element in the <head>:

    <link rel="canonical" href=" http://www.example.com/Actual-Url "/>

  3. JavaScript Source Map

    When you minify a JavaScript file, you can generate a "Source Map", which allows browsers' dev tools to display and debug against the unminified symbols, even though the actual running code is using the minified version.
    I propose that when Kentico creates a minified GetResource object, it should also generate this map and include it.

  4. Adding feature to filter when contact group assigned

    When contact assigned to group in contact group, there are no field in database to identified when this contact assigned to the group. As a result, we do not know when contact assigned and as a result reporting to show how many contact assigned to group by this month, week, day not able to generate.

  5. Proper AWS and S3 support

    For example you cannot control what gets mapped to S3 (like you can with Azure). 2nd it clearly does not page the contents of the bucket when listing the media content which causes it to crash after around 100 items in the folder.

  6. Display Repeater webpart where condition errors in event log in Kentico CMS 10

    Hi Team,

    When we are using wrong statement in Repeater where condition then it should be display "Select statement" with detail query in event log. It was in Kentico CMS 9 and Kentico CMS 8 as well but not available in Kentico CMS 10.

  7. transformations and SQL Queries Apps

    the way transformations and SQL Queries are tied to a page type is inconvenient.

    1. you can't just search for a transformation and SQL Query in CMS, unless you remember to which page type you tied them.

    2. when you move a page type to production via staging, all recently modified/new transformations and SQL Queries will be moved, but it's not necessarily required, especially when working on multiple projects and not everything should go to prod at the same time.

    3. sometimes i would delete a page type, but then i lose the tied transformations and SQL Queries, which is…

  9. ability to post an HTTP webhook for a Bizform form submission

    I would like to propose a new Bizform feature: the ability to configure an HTTP URL with each Bizform. Once configured, any form submission to this form, would trigger an HTTP Webhook POST to the specified URL. The payload of the HTTP POST would be – ideally in JSON – the form submission data.

    One of the best Wordpress form plugins – GravityForms – does this already. See https://gravityflow.io/gravity-forms-webhooks/. The UI screenshot in the article is helpful in understanding what configuration options there might be. Ideally the implementation would use a queue, much like the mail queue, to allow…

  10. 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.

  12. Media gallery list view option (rather than folder tree)

    Right now, the only way to navigate through folders in a Media Gallery web part is to show the folder tree and have users navigate with the tree.

    It would be nice to have an alternate "list view" option where folders and files are listed like they are in Windows Explorer, SharePoint, and other file management tools. In other words, folders and files all appear in a single list, and users can simply click the folder name to navigate down a level.

  13. 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.

  14. Dynamic Score in Scoring Engine

    It would be awesome to have variable scoring in the Scoring engine. It's flexible on when you can determine a score should be applied, but the amount is fixed.

    For example, say a person is filling out a retirement form, i want to award more points the older they are (maybe Contact.Age/10), so someone who is 20 gets 2 points, someone who is 80 gets 8 points.

  15. add a macro rule that allows you create a contact group based on a checkbox in a form. E.g. enter a competeiton and sign up for newsletter

    Currently the macro for contact groups that are conditional on answers on a form is string based.
    However, many forms have "sign up to newsletter/marketing" type checkboxes on them and it would be useful to have a default macro rule allowing a contact group based on this checkbox

  16. Responsive Images Attachment GUID Selector

    In K10 we started with responsive images. Kentico uses Attachment Variants to get this working.

    I would like to have a media selector, which returns the attachment GUID. Currently only the attachment URL is selected.
    But I need the GUID for almost every attachment helper method in the CMS code.

    It would be very cool to have an attachment selector, where the user could upload a new file as cms.file (content) or as document attachment (attachment) but not to the media library.
    The selector stores the GUID, so we could get all attachments (with variants) to create our responsive images…

  17. Wrap checkbox/radio input and label inside HTML element to control line-break issues

    Creating a Kentico form with a checkbox/radio button list with the "Repeat direction:" set to horizontal renders a series of checkbox/radio form controls and labels with no <br> tags. However, because there is no HTMl element that groups each control/label pair, the label will drop to a new line while the checkbox stays.

    By wrapping control/label pair inside an HTML element, such as span (even with no CSS class applied), gives us the ability to control this line-break issue with CSS.

    Current output example (stripping all id, values and for attributes):

    <span iclass="radio radio-list-horizontal">
    <input type="radio" value="Phone"><label>Phone</label>
    <input type="radio" value="Email"><label>Email</label> …

  18. Use the Service model for SKUAvailableItems

    I would like to see the SKUAvailableItems implemented using the Service model similar to the way Pricing and Calculations have been implemented in Kentico 11.

    Ideally the service would have the SKUID, ShippingAddress and UserID. This will allow lookups to get the SKUAvailableItems based on the users location or the shipping address and hence we would be able to check the quantity in the nearest Warehouse / Distribution point.

  20. Better page selection when using translation functionality

    The current single path selector in the translation app leaves much to be desired. You have to create two exports to do a section of the site (one for the parent page, and then one for its children).

    Adding the ability to select a node and its children, or specify multiple paths, or even choose multiple ad-hoc pages would make it less cumbersome.
