  3. View webpart properties without checking out the template

    When using versioning and checkout/checkin for templates I have to checkout a template not only yo modify webparts on the template but also to view the properties of a webpart.
    I often need to just view the properties of webparts and this is not possible if another developer has the template checkedout.

    I'd like to be able to open the properties window of a webpart in read-only mode when the template is not checkedout by me.

  4. Add a "User must change password on next login" checkbox to the User module

    Seems pretty straightforward. The part that might not be straightforward is that we have a group of users we manage externally and we need to have that group of users change password but the password isn't stored in Kentico but I can manage that part as long as there's a flag to check that I can reset. Yes, I could add it myself but this is a standard feature in any system that manages users.

  5. Improve predictive smart search performance

    Improve predictive smart search webpart to use a webservice http GET call instead of POST, the latter also returns viewstate on the response header which is a waste of resources. Make keypress time delay configurable too. we have to go inside the predictive js to decrease the response time which by default set to 500ms.

  7. Update integrated Captcha(s) to be state-of-the-art

    The built-in Captchas are very simple and for years now easily broken by the bots.

    In V8 there was added the "old" recaptcha - but it has a bad usability, often even human users are not able to give the correct answer.

    The only solution is to use a newer captcha from the Kentico marketplace.

    But it is usable only on forms.
    To use it as a "core captcha", you have to modify the core-code of MessageBoard Webparts, Blog Post Comment-Webpart and so on.
    This is not that easy and breaks any way the possibility to install updates/bug fixes...

    So,…

  8. Enable Kentico Admins to preview without publishing page

    It would be really useful if there could be a 'preview to draft' mode so that admins can preview their changes before publishing to live. The existing preview mode shows you how the page will look on the front end, but the content is published at this stage. This often confuses users.

    I understand we can do this with workflow but this would be great as a basic function.

    Thanks!

    Kelly

  9. Emails in queue with time to send them

    Emails in queue could have a time to be sent. It should work similar way as scheduled tasks do. Without time provided they would be sent ASAP.

  10. Adding unique key constraints in custom tables

    I don't believe there's a way to specify that a certain column in a custom table should be unique, beyond writing a custom insert event that tries to detect other items with the same field.
    This would ideally be implemented using the SQL unique key constraint properties, and in the custom table Fields UI it could simply show as another "Validation Rule" dropdown option, or as a checkbox similar to "Required".

  11. Add additional "DataItemLevelIndex" and "DataItemLevelCount" attributes to Hierarchical Viewers/Transformations

    When using Hierarchical Transformations we need to know how many items are in the current level being transformed as well as the current items index on that level. We can this already in repeater transformations with the DataItemIndex and DataItemCount attributes, but these don't help when you are using a hierarchical transformation because they just tell you how many items are being transformed in the whole dataset, not in relation to the current level.

    This blog post gives an example of the problem and a workaround:

  12. Azure retry logic

    It would be great if Kentico implemented a retry logic for queries and calls. This would be especially beneficial when running on Azure because transient errors occur quite often in this kind of environment and it is strongly recommended that you should never rely on a successful finish of any operation and rather implement a retry logic instead.

  14. body class

    Need way to add custom class names to body tag.

    Customizing via CMSContext.CurrentBodyClass isn't sufficient -- it's clumsy and subject to deprecation.

  16. 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)

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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!

    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…
