  1. Official support for "Feature Folders" pattern in Kentico 12 Mvc

    When ASP.NET Mvc was first launched it was a significant change in project and framework design compared to Web Forms. Microsoft needed to place the Framework changes front and center for help developers understand the new pattern.

    Now Mvc has been around for 10 years in the ASP.NET world and other patterns, especially in front-end javascript developemt but also in ASP.NET Core, have shown to be more scalable and maintainable.

    Feature Folders is a pattern that supports focusing on business feature requirements in naming and file path conventions.

    Developers rarely work on "Models" or "Controllers" or "Views". Instead they are…

    • Official support for Attribute Routing in Kentico 12 Mvc projects

      Attribute Routing for Mvc has been official supported by Microsoft since October 2013.

      https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/webdev/2013/10/17/attribute-routing-in-asp-net-mvc-5/

      Some developers in the .NET web community recognize it as a superior routing solution to Convention Routing, which is what Kentico 12 Mvc currently uses.

      It can be shown that Attribute Routing scales much better in terms of maintenance and flexibility with large projects compared to Convention Routing. These large projects are exactly the type that benefit from using Mvc instead of Web Forms.

      Sometimes a combination of Convention and Attribute Routing can lead to the best results for a site.

      If Kentico wants to empower…

      • Add Properties to MVC Widget Sections

        Kentico 12 introduces MVC Portal, which uses Widget Sections to add structure to your widget placement.

        These structures do not allow for properties to be passed to them to configure the section. This is important because on mobile-responsive sites, you could have a 2 column (50-50) layout that on desktop is 50-50, mobile 75-25, or you could have a 2 column layout that on large is 80-20, medium 50-50, small 100 and 100, etc.

        Along with this many times you want to add a wrapping class to a section to style the elements within it.

        We want the ability to…

        • ACL - Grant access by role

          Currently I can't grant access to a page for users in one specific role using ACL settings.
          I was told to use a "deny" role instead - which is not a solution for me.

          It would be great if it is possible to grant read access to a page for users in one specific role. This is not possible at the moment.

          Current behaviour example:
          If I set "Requires Authentication", any user who is logged in gets access, regardless of the user's roles.
          If I do not set "Requires Authentication", even anonymous users can read it.
          If I use the…

          • Create Page / URL and Media picker's for MVC Widget Properties window

            Create Page / URL picker for MVC Widget Properties window.
            It would be useful to be able to have a Page or URL Picker for when working with MVC Widgets..

            It would also be useful to have a Media Picker, instead of having to upload a new image each time.

            Right now, there are very limited controls that can be used here..

            • Please allow salesforce sandbox conncection to be used for integration testing.

              Right now the compiled code for Salesforce authentication has "login.salesforce.com" hardcode for Oauth. Please change that to something can be changed via web.config or settings key, so developers can switch that to "test.salesforce.com" to test integration with sandbox.

              • Introduce sort order for Related pages

                Allow editors to change the order of the related pages under the "Related pages" tab.

                Also, separate out Left-Right, Right-Left relationships into their own lists to sorting.

                  For instance, be able to change a picture or page title across all country versions at once, rather than having to do it manually on each country version

                  • Add support for Webp

                    Firefox now also supports webp images. Edge will also when it starts to use the Chrome engine. It will only be a matter of time before all browsers support webp images

                      • eDM Send page

                        It would be great if on the Send page there is an at-a-glance table showing all the pertinent information needed before hitting Send. It should show the main information required for sending (eg filename, subject line, sender, sender address, reply to address, contact groups and numbers, opt-out groups etc. This isn’t provided in Kentico, so I need to go through different tabs and pages to double-check information (eg an eDM was sent this week with an incorrect subject line).

                        The ‘make sure’ list in Kentico Send page is more of a checklist than information.

                        The file attached provides an example…

                        • 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…

                              Situation: a multi-language website (FR - EN - NL) and communication that is sent in both French and Dutch through the Kentico EMS.

                              In our pages application we mostly set our culture to NL (default).
                              When turning to the email marketing application and setting up a new email campaign in French, I come across this inconvenience: when I try to insert a link to one of our pages, I see only the pages in Dutch. Quit inconvenient while completing a French email.

                              The only way I can solve this write now is by opening the pages…

                              • Copy product document together with SKU data and product option categories cross multiple sites

                                I would like to copy a product document together with it's connected SKU data and all applied product categories across multiple sites.

                                Currently this is not possible (maybe it is now in 12)...

                                In Kentico 11 I can only copy the product. The SKU data is missing after coping the document. This requires to edit almost anything in the new document again - which makes it senseless to copy...

                                • 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.

                                    Form fields could use a flexible "additional attributes" field, which would allow users to add whatever attributes they'd like. Following a syntax like the style attribute, a user could add this, for example: "placeholder:Email Address;", and then your server-side code could split and parse the name/value pair into the input field.

                                    • email priority

                                      Kentico adds to email from email marketing this properties:
                                      X-Priority: 5
                                      Priority: non-urgent
                                      Importance: low

                                      But I can not influence it. Please, add settings for it.

                                      • Ability to seperate email based on type to different SMTP servers

                                        Sending all mail generated from Kentico through the same (set of) SMTP server(s) is a bad idea. Why? If marketing emails result in service being throttled by the SMTP service (it happens), it also slows down delivery of transactional email.

                                        Perhaps this could be set up to send to different sub-domains e.g. mktg.example.com & store.example.com.

                                        Or email templates have a tag that is used for determining which service they get forward to.

                                        Either way, this can help to seperate not only issues when they arise, but also reporting etc.

                                        If Kentico is serious about email marketing, I think this is…

                                        • Search the entire Media Library and all sub-folders

                                          Is there a way to do a Global search in Media Library?
                                          I.e. when at the root folder, do a search that will find all the images in all subfolders?
                                          e.g. If I want to find all the "achill" images that are in the Media Library and I go to the root folder and search for "achill" -> no images are found
                                          I need to search each folder individually, so if I go to the sub-folder and search for "achill" => I find all the "achill" images in the folder
                                          Searching the entire Media Library and all subfolders
