  1. 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.

  2. 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" :-)

  3. URLs in Newsletter

    DESCRIPTION:

    Settings / URLs and SEO / Redirect invalid case URLs to their correct versions

    There is an option "Redirect all requests to lower case URLs"

    This is the best setting for SEO and it is fine until now.

    PROBLEM is with newsletters. It would be fine to create an exception for them. E.g. checkbox DO NOT USE THIS RULE IN NEWSLETTERS

    If you put the link (e.g. Google Sheet, that uses lower and upper cases) into newsletter´s body, all characters in the link are redirect to lower case.

    All is fine in Draft, but if you send it to…

  4. 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.

  5. 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 I could use multiple attachments but doing so will require constantly uploading and items may become outdated which becomes an issue if there is multple pages that have these resources.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

  6. Increase the size of the "Position" and "Title" contact fields in the Contact database

    We capture these fields from fields in registration but they tend to be way longer than the current definitions in the Contact Management system. When we pass this information from registration to the contact database it gets lost if it exceeds the length. We have to manually add it back in and let it get truncated. Would be good if both were 255 that way we can not lose good data on our users and their activities.

  7. 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…

  8. setting to default macro to not be signed

    The setting would have the macros not be signed so they would run as the Public user. This could be an issue if working with work flows or unpublished content, as a public user would not have access to that. But for the majority of macros I think the public user would have access and it would be better security as it is being all ran as a public user.

  10. Implementation of Swagger UI in REST API to approach the need for documentation and easier integration

    I would love to see swagger being implemented in the REST API, as it is a quick and effective way of documenting the REST API and make it easier to test the calls with less trial and error on the user side.

    Its also enables clients to consume the rest api easier and integrate it with Visual Studio 2017 as it has a feature to add a "Rest API Client" which builds all the required models and classes for the calls and also builds a service to easily make the calls from any .net project.

    Please look below at the…

  11. Resign macros by user/select user or identity to assign macro to

    During an upgrade you have to resign macros. It would be nice if you could resign all macros by a specific user or Identity. This way it would help prevent security issues. If there are macros that are bad from specific users you can look at them individually.

    If you are resigning macros and can select only specific macros from a user, it would be nice if you could then resign them back to that user or to a specific identity.

  12. Page Temple Type Limitation

    Give the ability to limit page types based on a page template to reduce error from editors.

    When adding a new page template, developers can set specific page types to be used as children. - not only as scope. So when a new instance of this page is created anywhere, this limitation holds and not only where a scope is set up.

  13. Preview mode in the Email builder - no "Go back" button

    When using the Preview mode in the Email builder, there's no possibility to quickly go back to editing the email. The only way is to go back to Email marketing feature, filter the Newsletter and open the email issue again.
    Can you please change the flow? It's kinda annoying...

  14. 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.

  16. 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…

  17. auto-select the uploaded package

    When i update a new package to import, it would be nice if the new package will be selected automatically instead of having to selected it manually. (So many time i click « next » with the wrong package)

  18. Allow to Reject and Approve Workflows without Modify Permissions

    We have a use case that requires a person to review edits and then accept or reject those edits as part of a workflow step. This doesn’t necessarily mean they should be able to modify the page. They should just have the read permission.

    For example, someone in the Legal and Compliance department should be able to review the page and decide whether it is complicit with the law. They are not part of the creative team that comes up with the design and copy. They provide guidance, but do not dictate exactly how the page should look. It is…

  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
