  1. navigation

    Redirecting Navigation:
    When choosing the "URL redirection" option under Properties -> Navigation, it would be nice if the code was smart enough to recognize if the redirection is navigating to a page on the existing site or to an external domain, and then build a href accordingly. Ideally, if my page was on abc.com/test and I wanted to redirect to xyz.com/test1, I would like my link to reflect xyz.com/test1. There isn't a good reason in my mind that the link should reflect abc.com/test. In addition, we should have the option to open this redirected link in a new window.

  2. Single admin application for multiple MVC sites

    Right now, if you have multiple production MVC sites, you are forced to also have multiple instances of the CMS admin application, even if the sites share a single database. This appears to be a legacy carryover of the implementation where the customer-facing production site and the admin interface were a single site sharing a hostname (the awful WordPress model.) This creates a lot of management overhead. Imagine a scenario with 10 sites. They are likely to have many overlapping users, roles and objects. Kentico is already designed to handle this scenario, except that it also requires 10 CMS instances…

  3. Add site(s) assigned to column under Users

    If you have more than one site on a Kentico instance, it would nice to see what site or sites a user was assigned to in the list of users in the Users Application.

  4. After changing site selector do not allow content changes - modal window?

    When you switch the site selector, the change APPEARS to have taken place (site dropdown displays the ‘new’ site), but if you watch the status bar, you can see that the request is still waiting for a response. Some of our users don’t realize this, and if they’re really quick with whatever they’re doing, they might be changing settings on the original site. Then, all of a sudden, the page switches with the correct site now showing, and them wonder the heck just happened. We're running into this more and more as users are becoming more familiar with making changes…

  5. More fine-grained control options for MVC Page Builder section configuration

    MVC Page Builder section properties in the K12 Service Pack were an extremely welcome addition. Good job on that, y'all!

    Unfortunately, it seems like section properties are really only set up with two options for editing:

    1.) Form Components in the stock configuration dialog - Super limited, with no lifecycle management. Need to manage a little bit of state, then safely release that resource for garbage collection when the configuration dialog closes? Whoops, just going to have to live with that memory leak!

    2.) Modal Dialogs - Heavy handed, one-size fits all solution that inhibit ease of feature discovery (opening…

  6. Default Country setting

    One of the most annoying things is during checkout when a user is completeing an address, when it comes to the country, as we are a UK based provider, the users has to scroll down the list to find the county.

    Ideally in e-commerce settings the default country should be a selection, so when the user visitis the page, its the 1st in the list.

  8. Allow unpublished page versions to be synchronized

    Currently, only published page versions (i.e. a major version, such as v1.0, v2.0, etc.) can be synchronized to a target server. When the current working version is a minor version (such as v0.7 or v1.3) and the content is synchronized, only the last major version is synchronized, which means that no changes made since the content was last published will be synchronized. If the content has not yet reached v1.0, the original version (v0.1) is published. Also, setting a Publish From date to some point in the future and clicking the Publish button does not promote the content to a…

  9. Add back button on all the wizards that have multiple steps(e.g. new custom table wizard)

    as title says. for example if you go to step 2 after completing step 1 in new custom table wizard and you go back, to continue to step 2 you then have to go to custom tables and then edit the table because you can't click next - it gives an error that the code name already exists. So a back button that remembers the state would be a good idea in my opinion.

  10. Add an option to have MVC widget property dialogs open automatically when placing on page

    When placing a MVC widget into a section, and the widget has a properties dialog with required fields, it would be sensible to open the widget configuration dialog automatically.

    Currently, it does not open and a content editor will see incomplete results on the page, or could save the page without adding these properties in. If the widget has properties, especially required properties, open the widget dialog by default. Or, add a WidgetController property/setting to designate whether this behavior should occur.

  12. Add the capability to add links/icons to the dashboard that take the user to a page created outside of the CMS.

    I have users who need to be able to add content to the CMS from a mobile platform. I would like to see you add the capability to add a shortcut presented as a links or icons to the dashboard. The link/icon shortcut would take the user to a page created outside of the CMS. This allows us to provide a custom view to users for mobile and improves the mobile experience.

  13. MVC Section default Widget

    At the moment, only "default section" can be declared globally.

    I would like to set "default widget" to any section in addition.

    With this, I would be able to add a inline editor text widget to concerned section elements by default. The editors would not need to add the text widget before they can edit the text.

  14. Enhance Google Recaptcha v2 language option

    Currently the code force to use 2 iso language code to form the Google Recaptcha API instead of referring to https://developers.google.com/recaptcha/docs/language for actual code. I could not change it due to the fact that I did not purchase a source code license. Need the flexibility to bypass that hardcoded incorrect method.

  17. Make links more accessible with aria-label attribute field

    Would be awesome if you'd add a new field under the Advanced tab of the Insert link dialog for descriptive text that would get rendered as an arial-label attribute on the link being inserted. This would allow content editors to create accessible "read more" links without having to switch to source mode.

  18. Customization of Widget / Inline Editor asset bundling

    Mvc widgets are great because they give both developers and content managers flexibility in features, design, and content.

    I envision developers creating Widget libraries to enable re-use of common widget patterns across sites or sharing them with the community.

    Currently the bundling process for widgets when the Mvc site is in edit-mode when configuring widgets in the CMS is very restrictive.

    I have to copy javascript/css that I copy from Github into files in my Mvc project and then commit them. This goes against the best practices of not committing build artifacts to source control.

    The javascript community has already…

  19. Share preview link without context of editor

    When an editor shares a preview link, the user receiving that link will be signed in as the editor sharing the link.

    This is not desired because navigating to for instance profile pages would share personal details.

    An easy fix would be adding a "preview-user", which could be selected in the settings.

    Since K12 it is not possible anymore to simply remove the user from the preview url.

  20. Reporting on the Value of an Abandoned Cart/Basket

    Allow admin users to be able to report on the value of baskets recovered. This would allow users to recognise the revenue generated by the abandoned basket marketing automation process.
