    • Ability to seperate email based on type to different SMTP servers

      Sending all mail generated from Kentico through the same (set of) SMTP server(s) is a bad idea. Why? If marketing emails result in service being throttled by the SMTP service (it happens), it also slows down delivery of transactional email.

      Perhaps this could be set up to send to different sub-domains e.g. mktg.example.com & store.example.com.

      Or email templates have a tag that is used for determining which service they get forward to.

      Either way, this can help to seperate not only issues when they arise, but also reporting etc.

      If Kentico is serious about email marketing, I think this is…

      • External Form Post

        Allow for HTTP POST of a form that just goes to an external site. I don't want to have to write any C# or bypass everything with JQUERY or other library. I just want to put method="POST" and an action="externalurl" to send my form data to.

        e.g. Salesforce Web-to-Case, Web-to-Lead other third party widget that I want to embed in my site that has nothing to do with Kentico at all.

        Sometimes, you just don't want to Forms from Kentico as the information is going to SurveyGizmo or something else. Just a simple post to a 3rd party URL where…

        • Make it possible to use an existing Resource String in the form builder

          If you want to use an existing resource string in for example a label in the form builder, the option is disabled. There is no setting or option to enable it for any role. This looks like a bug, since the option is build in there, but disabled. This is weird and should be fixed a.s.a.p.

          • Web part Visibility Where Condition

            Allow a Where condition inside of a Web Part's Visibility so we can set up rules other than page types or roles. It would be nice to have the web part hide if a certain field isn't entered or set up other custom criteria there.

            • Get On fly Resized image from AWS S3 storage into Kentico

              Kentico default Media library supports " URLs of resized images in media libraries" like below
              Permanent URL*
              (e.g., /Kentico/getmedia/ed0be744-9e70-4056-8c7d-91fc5087813c/Panda.jpg.aspx?width=100&height=66)

              We lost the above feature when we will integrate Media Library with third party storage location like AWS S3 and Azure blob

              Can you provide this default feature when images stored images in S3 and Azure blob?

              • Sort smart search by document name

                Did you know that DocumentName and Document title are not currently allowed as sorting options by default on smart search? Kentico Support's official recommendation is to go into the Modules and set the Pages module as customizable, to save document name and title as fields outside of _content (thus letting them be sortable)

                Title should be able to be one of the default sortable items without having to customize the site.

                • Translations correction

                  Our customers are reporting wrong core translations.
                  Would it be possible to make some corrections given that we would provide the list.
                  See example from German culture (incorrect BREITE instead of correct JA)

                      • Redirect URLs/Aliases When Archiving a Page

                        When I delete a page, I have the option to "Redirect old URLs to another page", which is great because one does not want to create broken links or 404 errors on your site for UX and SEO purposes.

                        However when I archive a page, I don't have this option and have to manually follow these steps:

                        - change original page alias
                        - copy all aliases individually from original page
                        - archive original page
                        - past all aliases to redirected page

                        When I archive a microsite with 10 pages and each page has 5-10 aliases, this becomes very time consuming…

                        • HTML editable text input window in the form tab should be resizeable and responsive

                          There is not the possibility to make the input field for the HTML editable text resizeable. It looks out-of-date on the new screens with high resolution.

                          • Improve user role permission settings

                            I think the current way Kentico is handling the permissions is not the way to go. I am very surprised that a Role is applied to the Kentico tree (pages) even if I don’t add the role in the tree. We have a large site with multiple editors. Some editors are only allowed to work in one part of the Kentico Tree. Now I have to create a lot of ‘denies’ and when there is a user that has more than one role (for example a website part and a intranet part) I need to create a new role for…

                            • Disable selected users all at one time

                              Add the ability to disable multiple users at once in the Users app. Currently when you select multiple users you can 'Delete' selected items. I'm looking to just disable them.
                              The use case is where you want your editors disabled in your production environment but they become re-enabled through the staging of objects and data from stage environment to production environment.

                              • Allow import/export of XLIFF translation files for custom resource strings in the Localization app

                                Kentico allows you to define custom, translatable resource strings via the Localization application, under the Resource strings tab.

                                However, it doesn't look like there's a built-in method to export those resource strings to XLIFF file(s) for translation to other cultures.

                                It would be beneficial to have the ability to send XLIFF files to a translation company to translate into a new culture, and import the updated XLIFF files directly into the site, as we can currently do with pages.

                                • "Save and Add Another" button in Modules

                                  It would be great if we could add a button for "Save and Add Another" to screens built in in the Module section, just like you can for Custom Tables. Without that button it is a clumsy process to save, then go back a screen to click the button to add new.

                                  • Kentico MVC - More control over URL Pattern for Content Only Page Types

                                    Currently, Content Only Page Types have a single URL Pattern field that is intended to somewhat connect the URL route of a page to the content tree. However, it seems to be limited to just a few simple macros like NodeAliasPath and DocumentCulture for simple URL paths this works. However for advanced URLs it does not cut it.

                                    I would love it if, at the very least, we could execute custom Macros in this property to craft more complex URLs (they currently don't work here based on my testing K10). Or maybe there needs to be some other mechanism to…

                                    • Add WebP support to the ImageHelper class

                                      When creating image variants, it would be great if we could also convert images to WebP.

                                      While WebP isn't universally supported, the <picture> tag could be used to offer it as an option to browsers that do support it, reducing page load.

                                      • Automatically generate scheduled tasks for web farms

                                        When you are using web farms, a few scheduled tasks need to be configured to execute on every server. When new servers are created by a rolling update or during auto-scaling, these tasks need to be created manually, or by writing a custom handler to generate them. It would be great if they could be flagged for automatic creation.

                                        The custom handler solution is described here:

                                        • Ability to insert webparts/widgets in between other webparts/widgets (Not only on the bottom)

                                          Hello, I'd love to see a way to add a widget above/below an already existing widget when in a widget zone on the Page tab or add a webpart above/below an already existing webpart in the Design tab. Currently, when adding a new widget or webpart to their respective zones, it is automatically placed at the end of the list. This is a hassle when a page is created with many widgets/webparts and then a click and drag is needed to place the item where it needs to go.

                                          Thank you,
