  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  4. 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…

  5. Whitelist IP's through CMSSiteManager

    Ability to Whitelist IPs for CMSDesk/CMSSiteManager access.  Possibly even extend Whitelist to User Roles.

  6. Have a setting to require content editors to enter alternate text for all images.

    All images on a site should have their alternate text property set for accessibility reasons. There should be a setting that requires editors to set the alternate text property for all images.

  7. Add a path selector for Media Libraries

    When creating web parts that rely on the Media Library content, it would be helpful to have a Media Library path selector control, instead of manually typing in the path, which can be problematic.

  8. Rewrite web parts and widgets with responsive design in mind

    Many of the standard web parts that require width and height entries only accept fixed pixel entries (eg. image and text web parts, Google maps, etc.). It would be great if one could enter percentages as well.

  9. Support ZURB's Foundation Front End Framework

    ZURB's Foundation front end framework is in the same class as Twitter Bootstrap and makes it easier for developers to prototype and implement mobile first designs that work cross platform.

    Currently the Kentico CSS and Foundation clash making editing in CMSDesk or in-page editing impossible (see here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/17055672/using-zurb-foundation-in-kentico-cms-portal-engine).

    It would be great if this were not the case as deliverables from outside agencies or existing migration products may be based on this popular framework.

  10. create more realistic usable booking system

    Booking should not be tied only to a calendar. If you have just couple of events the calendar is worthless – you need a list of bookable events grouped by locations or months. Having a booking system is a great idea but it needs to be more usable in real world.

  11. Events (Booking System) enhancements

    The following enhancements to the event booking module would be very useful.

    1) Ability to add users to events in bulk (in the admin section) via a selector. e.g. perhaps in a similar way that you would add users to a membership or role etc

    2) Ability to resend the Event Invitation email to ALL users in bulk. Currently you're only able to resend to individual users.. this leads me on to suggestion #3

    3) Ability to specify/apply a pre-defined email template for the "Mass Email" tab. This would satisfy #2 above. Currently, when using the mass emailer you're forced…

  12. most viewed

    I would great to have a webpart where you can see the top N most viewed pages/products/blogposts or any documenttype in a repeater style.

    It's a very common "widget" on a lot of websites.

    Thank you.

  13. Forms - Redirect to url field

    Hello

    For the Forms area, it would be nice to make the Redirect to url field, a URL Selector form control and not be a text box. This way we can point to a page in the CMS Tree without problems, but also be able to put Macro's in the URL path.

    Thanks

    Hi Ilesh, I agree with you that within Forms module there can be a lot of UX improvements. Path or URL selector is definitely nice improvement for Redirect to URL field. Waiting for more votes. Thank you!

  14. Detecting soft vs. hard bounces

    Is it possible for Kentico to include or to look at the smtp reply codes when looking at the bounced emails, instead of only using the special key. This will mean that the task will look in the specified mailbox and look at the SMTP code and determine the type of bounce. Using these codes we can identify between a soft bounce and a hard bounce and most probably unsubscribe an email with a hard bounce. http://www.greenend.org.uk/rjk/tech/smtpreplies.html

  15. Outlook connector for Intranet Portal Package

    One of the most compelling features of Sharepoint is the ability to view and edit shared online calendars directly in Outlook.
    This sort of functionality would be a great addition to the document management features that come with the new intranet portal package!

  16. Tie booking system in with user accounts

    The booking system doesn't store a user's id, only their email address. This makes it difficult to determine what events the user has attended if they ever change their email address.

  17. Scroll click breadcrumbs to open new tab

    Simple as the title, currently (I am using K12) the breadcrumbs can't be opened in a new tab.
