  1. Payment fee

    I can set up fee for delivery method. But sometimes I need set up fee for payment method (for example: additional fee for paying by credit card).

    • Google Analytics event tracking on bizforms

      I'm having trouble with passing the referral source to Google analytics. It would be nice to have the ability for bizform submissions to trigger an event on Google analytics upon successful submission (After validation)

      • Repeatable Elements

        In certain other CMS-es it is possible to implement a repeatable field within a smartform, this way for exampel contents such as articles do not need to have a predefined number of fields/elements but can provide the flexibility to add as many as the user wishes.

        • HTML Minified

          Now only CSS and JavaScript files can control to minified.

          Kentico Should add one more feature so that the hrml also can be minified.

          Thanks.

          • Exporting a part of the tree

            It would be great to export a sub set of the tree.
            As an example export the documents from "~/e-commerce/shoppingcartsteps/%"

            This way you can easily create an export containing the shoppingcart templates and the documents, so you don't have to create those documents by hand.

            Would make releases easier in my opinion.

            Best regards!

            • Allow recurring payment option for payment using existing gateway

              The payment gateway options available in Kentico do not have the capability to make a particular transaction as recurring.
              We have membership as a product, and want to give option to user to auto-renew it on completion. At the moment, we have an alert mail that can be sent X number of days prior to completion of membership, and ask user to make another payment.
              Authorize.Net have this option.
              Authorize.Net is available as a payment option with Kentico. It would be nice if one order can have the option to make the payment recurring.

                Hello

                How do you currently implement recurring donations or membership renewal?

                Is there a common scenario for the membership renewal? e.g. Purchaser will buy a membership/donate, and after a year an email will be sent to this Purchaser with new billing info and payment link or confirmation that a recurring payment was made?

                Kind Regards

                  Hello supporters!

                  We are currently exploring this idea and looking for the best solution.

                  To better understand all the related needs, I would like to ask you a few things:

                  1. Can you list the most typical changes you need to make to the page template and its head section?

                  2. Is it ok for you just to be able to modify the Master page or do you need to be able to somehow modify also common pages and their head sections – via their templates?

                  3. Do you prefer to be able to see and modify some markup directly or do think specific web parts with properties that are then injected into the markup are a better solution?

                  4. Who and how often is going to do these changes? The developer suring development phase or a content editor during content authoring process?

                  5. If we only talk about being…

                • Select which culture of a document to sync

                  On multi-cultural sites, almost all of the time you only want to stage / sync one culture version of a document to the live site.

                  Currently this is not possible, and all culture versions of the document are staged across.

                  I would like to see either:

                  a) each culture change shown as a separate staging item in the queue
                  b) ability to define which cultures to stage when performing a sync
                  c) or both?

                  Open to suggestions on implementation.

                    Hello!

                    We are currently exploring this idea and we would like to hear your comments on the following technical proposal:

                    When a staging task for a page is logged, culture code of the culture version will be loggged as a separate database field. This information will be used to filter the staging tasks for a specific culture version. There will be a dropdown list filter availbale in the Staging application on Pages tab as well as a column in the listing to identify the culture.

                    This way administrator can synchronize only pages in selected culture. Please note that dependencies such as missing parent node for a selected culture version will be handled the very same way as any other dependencies – system ends with an error complaining about missing dependency. You need to make sure that all dependent objects are synchronized in correct order.

                    Thanks for your comments!

                  • Save & Publish button

                    When editing content in CMSdesk there is a Save button and a Publish button. It would be useful to add a button that combines both of these, e.g. "Save & Publish".

                    • Create "pre-configured web parts"

                      It would be nice to have an area of the CMSDesk where we could create "pre-configured" web parts. I find that I need to show the same data on multiple pages... and I have to configure the same web part multiple times.

                      Page inheritance does not always work. Nor does cloning a web part and setting default values (as suggested in the documentation).

                      Let me explain: I have a web part being used in 15 different page templates. I needed to change the OrderBy value and had to do so for all 15 web parts individually.

                      It would be nice…

                      • Infinite scrolling

                        Instead of a ordinary pager, provide an option to asynchronously load more items when a user scrolls to the bottom of the page - aka. infitine scrolling. I would also like an option to limit how many times it should load the data(make it finite). It would be also helpful If the URL address changes during the async load(HTML5 History API), so a I can send the address to somebody and he/she views the same content as I.

                          • Tax calculations per ZIP code

                            In some situations the only way to charge the correct tax on a sale is to look at the purchasers ZIP code. Taxes can vary per state, city and ZIP. It would be great to have the option to control it at that level.

                              Hello,

                              We are currently in the middle of implementing several customization points. One of those is a “Tax Service” which should be used as a bridge between tax calculation in Kentico and external system or custom logic.

                              This Tax service is a single point of customization, so it should be easy to extend with a custom logic like taxing per ZIP.

                              It’s a code block with an input and output where the input is:
                              - SKU
                              - Quantity
                              - Price
                              - Customer
                              - Currency
                              - Date
                              - Shipping address
                              - Billing address
                              and output:
                              - calculated tax

                              With this new Tax Service should be easy to implement this functionality as customization as the ZIP is available in the address object.

                              What do you think about it? I’m sorry if it’s too technical, old habits.

                              thank you

                              Kind Regards

                            • Use the HTML5 placeholder attribute for watermark text across all webparts/controls

                              The HTML5 placeholder attribute is well supported in modern browsers and easy to polyfill for older browsers.

                              I would suggest that a polyfill should be implemented by the website developers rather than Kentico.

                              • Provide better tag managment

                                Given how tags are an important part of content strategy these days, Kentico CMS needs a better way to centrally manage tags so they can be easily updated, deleted, and added to documents, images, and files. The system does list all the tags and provides a way to see all the documents with a given tag, but there is no edit capability.

                                The API does provide a way to manage the tags, but a nice UI is needed for administrators.

                                • 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 "/>

                                  More information:

                                    Hello!

                                    We are currently exploring the possibility to cover this idea. There are few questions related to Canonical links I’d like to ask:

                                    Do you prefer this feature to automatically cover most used scenarios (such as redirections) or do you prefer manual control of Canonical links?

                                    Automatically:

                                    If automatically, what would be the top required scenarios for your projects?

                                    Is the primary concern the variant of the URL (like http vs https, trailing slash vs non-trailing slash?

                                    How do you want to specify the format of the canonical link globally?

                                    Manually:

                                    If manually, then do you consider the Content editor to specify the canonical link using a selector or URL manually?

                                    Is the primary concern a page alias created for a page?

                                    Both:

                                    Is it ok just to handle links within a single site or there is also a need for links to external sites?

                                    Is the scenario covered by…

                                    Allow me to rollback of objects which were staged in a staging task

                                    • Automatically add semantics

                                      Allow built in semantics (RDF, Open Graph) for documents, which can be configured easily. So for example a "product" document would automatically output semantic meta data (name, descriptions, photo, price, promotion, localisation information etc) without the CMS editor needing to fill in extra fields. Smart search could also use the meta data to help prioritise the search results. Perhaps there could be a choice in compliance too; facebook open graph, twitter cards, standard open graph etc. Semantics are becoming increasingly important for Web apps and e-commerce - it would be great to see it easily achievable in Kentico without the…
