  1. ACL - Grant access by role

    Currently I can't grant access to a page for users in one specific role using ACL settings.
    I was told to use a "deny" role instead - which is not a solution for me.

    It would be great if it is possible to grant read access to a page for users in one specific role. This is not possible at the moment.

    Current behaviour example:
    If I set "Requires Authentication", any user who is logged in gets access, regardless of the user's roles.
    If I do not set "Requires Authentication", even anonymous users can read it.
    If I use the…

  3. Macros in Mass Email

    There have been several times when a general but personalized email needed to be sent to a group of site users. The email would need to have a personalized greeting, or some other user-specific data inserted in the body. Ideally I would be able to use the 'Mass Email' feature to select multiple users and create an email body that contains user-context macros, but this is not an option right now. These instances are pretty simple standalone cases where it would be overkill to use the online marketing messaging features.

  4. Please allow salesforce sandbox conncection to be used for integration testing.

    Right now the compiled code for Salesforce authentication has "login.salesforce.com" hardcode for Oauth. Please change that to something can be changed via web.config or settings key, so developers can switch that to "test.salesforce.com" to test integration with sandbox.

  5. Autoresponder template

    It is very frustrating having to post common template elements for Auto responders and email notifications in Forms.
    There needs to be an option for both to choose an email template. When you have chosen the email template. In that template you specify the content render region.
    The WYSIWYG area then will render content in replace of that.

    If there is a change in logo or head design for an email for a company you currently have to go through every auto responder, notification for all forms and a few other places to update them. It is a bit silly…

  7. Inherit Search fields settings in inherited Page Type

    We always use custom Base Page type for any our custom Page Types. When we set any field in Base Type as Searchable it is not updated in any child Page type. So if we add new field to base type we have to go to every child type and set this manually. This would be great if we could automate this.

  8. Upgrade installation automated rollback on failure

    Please add a feature into the upgrade program to rollback to the previous version if the upgrade fails. It can use the site and database backups already created earlier in the upgrade process. For the complexity and cost of this CMS system, it should have an automated rollback feature that handles a failed upgrade attempt for you.

    Thank you.

  10. Place <meta charset=""> tag above <title> tag

    We've found a few references that indicate the <meta charset> declaration should precede the <title> declaration in the <head> element. Seems like it's preferable to have it immediately after the opening <head> tag.

  11. Introduce sort order for Related pages

    Allow editors to change the order of the related pages under the "Related pages" tab.

    Also, separate out Left-Right, Right-Left relationships into their own lists to sorting.

  12. Automatically generate MVC View/Controller/Repository boilerplate

    Currently, Kentico will allow automatic generation of the Model based on page types.
    However, in order to match Kentico's existing structure, you also have to add a View, a Controller, and an Interface and implementation class for the Repository (The latter not strictly necessary, but it is if you want to match Kentico's internal classes' structure.)
    Obviously the View and Controller will need to be customized, but a lot of it (the files themselves, the class definitions and using statements, the constructors for the Controller, etc) are going to be boilerplate.
    Ideally, this would be via something like a zip…

  14. Implement support for SAML 2.0

    Officially Kentico only supports SAML 1.0/1.1. Needs to also support SAML 2.0.

  15. eDM Send page

    It would be great if on the Send page there is an at-a-glance table showing all the pertinent information needed before hitting Send. It should show the main information required for sending (eg filename, subject line, sender, sender address, reply to address, contact groups and numbers, opt-out groups etc. This isn’t provided in Kentico, so I need to go through different tabs and pages to double-check information (eg an eDM was sent this week with an incorrect subject line).

    The ‘make sure’ list in Kentico Send page is more of a checklist than information.

    The file attached provides an example…

  16. Select language when adding a link to our newsletter.

    Fix this situation

    Description:
    Situation: a multi-language website (FR - EN - NL) and communication that is sent in both French and Dutch through the Kentico EMS.

    In our pages application we mostly set our culture to NL (default).
    When turning to the email marketing application and setting up a new email campaign in French, I come across this inconvenience: when I try to insert a link to one of our pages, I see only the pages in Dutch. Quit inconvenient while completing a French email.

    The only way I can solve this write now is by opening the pages…

  17. Copy product document together with SKU data and product option categories cross multiple sites

    I would like to copy a product document together with it's connected SKU data and all applied product categories across multiple sites.

    Currently this is not possible (maybe it is now in 12)...

    In Kentico 11 I can only copy the product. The SKU data is missing after coping the document. This requires to edit almost anything in the new document again - which makes it senseless to copy...

  18. Don't set height via style in image editor

    When resizing an image in the image editor set the height and width properties as attributes not with the style tag. when you set the height and width it makes it difficult to make the image resize automatically with the browser.

  19. Storing Cache Data in Redis instead of Server Memory

    It would be nice if you could have the cache stored in Redis cache. IT would help prevent the server memory from getting large similar to file storage. Also, if using a Web Farm it would provide a way to store the cache in a centralized location.
