  1. Bring page navigation properties back to MVC

    Sorely missing properties like:

    - Document Menu Caption
    - Show/Hide In Navigation
    - Redirection Url
    - really all of them

    Please bring them back!

    • 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…

      • Restrict currencies by country

        Can we have the ability to limit currencies by the customers country?

        For example a customer in the UK should be restricted to ordering in GBP whilst those in a different EU country can order in Euro's or US Dollars.

        • Workflow Emails

          It would be helpful to be able to flag specific roles or users to receive workflow notifications rather than all users with the "Manage Workflow" permission.

          Use case - we have certain content that must be reviewed and approved by legal. By including specific roles / users in workflow steps, legal will only get notice of page to approve that are applicable to them.

          • Using direct uploader form control in forms

            Enable usage of direct uploader form control in forms and not only page types - it can be usable to prevent lose the selected file when page has postback.

            • generated code class inheritance

              Introduce class inheritance in generated page type model classes. Right now a page type can inherit from a base page type which is very handy. However when c# classes are generated (in code tab of the Page Types app) they both inherit from TreeNode which is very inconvenient as it denies access to base properties across all derived classes. The derived class should inherit from the base class instead of TreeNode.

              • Persist widget based content personalization when copying the page, or creating a new cultured version

                Widget based content personalization should be persisted when you copy a page, or create a new culture version and opt to copy for an existing version, or when using the translate functionality. Currently we have to do a lot of manual work to recreate the content personalization across all the languages our site supports.

                • When setting security on pages it would be better to be able to select multiple users/roles and change permissions for those selected.

                  When setting security on pages it would be so much better to be able to select multiple users/roles and change permissions for those selected as it is in many other systems. This alone would make me reconsider a product.
                  As we have lots of roles for security control on our intranet currently we have to set page permissions one by one, this is very time consuming and laborious.
                  Thanks,
                  Andy

                  • Add macro rule containing score

                    Hi, there is no rule using contact score which we can use for personalization.

                    For example you want to show some content only for users with score between 20 and 50, but there is no rule for that. So we try to work around that with Contact Statuses and Marketing automation because there is trigger based on Contact score.

                    First we set up scoring (rules, etc.), then create 3 contact statuses - Cold lead, Warm lead, Hot lead
                    For each contact status (lead phase) we create a marketing automation plan - Cold lead MA, Warm lead MA, Hot lead MA …

                      • Warning displayed when deleting media library item that is referenced somewhere

                        When deleting an item in the media library it would be great for kentico to warn the use of where the image is used. So these references can be changed before deleting the item.

                        • Addition of Responsive Image Management to Media Libraries

                          It would be great to have Responsive Image Management added to Media Libraries. It is a really nice feature for page attachments and would be a great addition to Media Libraries.

                          Thanks!

                          • Create versioning in Staging Task Groups

                            As much as the task group lists are useful. We feel that if they could be further developed so that it includes versioning of pages/templates for non-technical website editors.

                            This would mean that website editors could work on the same template and stage only their changes rather than all of the changes that have been made on that page/template.

                              Hello,

                              I think you’re trying to achieve a cooperation process. However, staging of version history is not a good solution for that.

                              Let’s say the staging will support version history changes, but after a successful staging, the new version history will overwrite the old versions as there’s no merge.

                              We are solving this with our CI functionality. Which may be difficult for non-technical users, however, there are User-Friendly merge/repository tools that may be useful in this case.

                              Please let me know what you think about this.

                              Kind Regards
                              Michal Kadak

                                  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.

                                  • 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.

                                    • Built-in localization support for System.Web.Mvc.RemoteAttribute on data models

                                      Most data annotation attributes are supported and localized automatically when a call to builder.UseDataAnnotationsLocalization(); is added in the ApplicationConfig file, which is great and we've adopted this across the board, however the RemoteAttribute does not appear to be supported.

                                      It is used for real-time remote validation, such as checking if an email address is in use.

                                      • 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).

                                        • Multi-lingual sites - dont change current site language if default culture page is loaded.

                                          If we have a multi-lingual site, and set the Combine with default culture Setting option, if a page is not available or translated, then it loads the page in the default culture. However, it also then changes the selected language for the site to the default culture.
                                          This is confusing for the site visitor, since not only is the page in a different language, but also the header, footer, menus and all surrounding content.
                                          It would be preferable if the default culture page was loaded inside the existing language, without changing the site language.
