  1. Always store dates/times in UTC (in the database)

    Currently dates and times are stored in the database using the time zone specified by the "Server time zone" setting. This is dangerous and hugely problematic, especially for any site that wishes to use or display times in more than one time zone. And it makes determining durations between times practically impossible. This is because local times can have "gaps" because of daylight savings time.

    The benefit to always using UTC times is HUGE:

    1. There is absolutely no ambiguity (that, in itself, should be enough).

    2. Calculating durations is extremely simple. The time span from 1:30AM UTC to 2:30AM…

  2. Allow recurring payment option for payment using existing gateway

    The payment gateway options available in Kentico do not have the capability to make a particular transaction as recurring.
    We have membership as a product, and want to give option to user to auto-renew it on completion. At the moment, we have an alert mail that can be sent X number of days prior to completion of membership, and ask user to make another payment.
    Authorize.Net have this option.
    Authorize.Net is available as a payment option with Kentico. It would be nice if one order can have the option to make the payment recurring.

    Hello

    How do you currently implement recurring donations or membership renewal?

    Is there a common scenario for the membership renewal? e.g. Purchaser will buy a membership/donate, and after a year an email will be sent to this Purchaser with new billing info and payment link or confirmation that a recurring payment was made?

    Kind Regards

  3. SASS Support for Editor

    The text editor in Kentico 8 supports a lot of different languages and markup, but it'd be nice if it supported SASS.

    Everything I've read points to SASS being more prominent than LESS, and with the ability to create a CSS Preprocesser the most limiting part is that the editor makes a mess of the colors when trying to use SASS syntax.

  4. Get files url with native extensions (image.jpg and not image.aspx)

    We need to be able to get the files url with native extensions example ****/image.jpg and not .aspx.
    we need this to be used with third party sites, for example we are not able to share an image using Facebook as it sees it as a webpage and not an image, so it doesn't generate preview for it.
    In the other hand we are facing the same issue with a 3rd party pdf viewer that we are using.

    So allowing the developer to access the url with the native extension will be a great help.

    thank you

  5. Infinite scrolling

    Instead of a ordinary pager, provide an option to asynchronously load more items when a user scrolls to the bottom of the page - aka. infitine scrolling. I would also like an option to limit how many times it should load the data(make it finite). It would be also helpful If the URL address changes during the async load(HTML5 History API), so a I can send the address to somebody and he/she views the same content as I.

  6. Tax calculations per ZIP code

    In some situations the only way to charge the correct tax on a sale is to look at the purchasers ZIP code. Taxes can vary per state, city and ZIP. It would be great to have the option to control it at that level.

    Hello,

    We are currently in the middle of implementing several customization points. One of those is a “Tax Service” which should be used as a bridge between tax calculation in Kentico and external system or custom logic.

    This Tax service is a single point of customization, so it should be easy to extend with a custom logic like taxing per ZIP.

    It’s a code block with an input and output where the input is:
    - SKU
    - Quantity
    - Price
    - Customer
    - Currency
    - Date
    - Shipping address
    - Billing address
    and output:
    - calculated tax

    With this new Tax Service should be easy to implement this functionality as customization as the ZIP is available in the address object.

    What do you think about it? I’m sorry if it’s too technical, old habits.

    thank you

    Kind Regards

  7. 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.

  8. Importing of licence file

    On the client portal we can upgrade and export all our licences to a text file. However, you don't provide a facility to import that text file in CMSSiteManager. Please add a button under Licences to import and replace existing licences with the new ones.

  10. Select which culture of a document to sync

    On multi-cultural sites, almost all of the time you only want to stage / sync one culture version of a document to the live site.

    Currently this is not possible, and all culture versions of the document are staged across.

    I would like to see either:

    a) each culture change shown as a separate staging item in the queue
    b) ability to define which cultures to stage when performing a sync
    c) or both?

    Open to suggestions on implementation.

  11. Allow Javascript Files from the CMSSiteManager -> Development -> Javascript Files to be Content Staged

    Right now there are no staging tasks logged when you edit a Javascript file in CMSSiteManager in Kentico 7. It would sure be nice to content stage these files just like the rest of the objects in CMSSiteManager.

  13. timezone display on admin site

    Administration site does not display correct time (as set in timezone settings) except few places like Pages and Reports.

    This must work across the board.
    For example EventLog and Users last login timestamps are useless without being converted to site's timezone.

  14. Media Library, set and remember 'Items per page' for Pagination

    1. Set and Remember 'Items per page' preferences (in Media Library / per User).

    Currently when we change the items per page settings in Media Library, we can go to other folders in the Media Library and the # of items is remembered correctly.
    When exiting and re-entering the Media Library, it defaults back to 10.

    We would like to have a persistent setting of 100, possibly per user.

    2. Respect the cms.config AppSettings CMSDefaultListingPageSize everywhere in pages/pop-ups that have pagination.

    Currently, it seems to affect the Paging application and the amount of results there, yet the pagination in e.g.…

  15. Media Library search of file title and file description

    When keyword searching a media library, the search only searches the file name. It would be very helpful to have the search also look at the file title and file description fields that can be set on the file.

  16. Exclude email tracking stats like open rate, click rate, etc from certain IP's or email domains.

    Today we see open rate, click rate, etc for the entire list that the email was sent to. Our entire company is on our email lists so we can get a clear picture of the effectiveness of our various email marketing tactics. The results are being skewed by our internal recipients.

  19. Add 'non-Binary' to User Gender

    Currently Kentico uses an Integer to store the User Gender with the values 0 / 1 / 2 (Unknown / Male / Female / Other). Given the way things have changed can this be updated to 0 / 1 / 2 / 3 (Unknown / Male / Female / Non-Binary)

    Perhaps you can also add a UserGenderName field, so that non-binary options can be stored as text within that field. For out-of-the-box this can be left null and developers would need to implement based on their requirements.

    As an example Facebook allows at least 56 different string entries for Gender…

  20. Provide 'where used' and link checking functionality

    For users it is extremely hard to keep track of links, pages and images.
    Especially when the content tree or medialibrary needs to be restructured.

    I know there is already funtionality which creates aliasses automatically, but in the end that is not a real solution.

    So it would be great if you could see where a specific document or medialibrary-item is used.
    This could be done by analyzing the html which comes from the fckeditor.

    It would also be great if some kind of periodically link checking would be done, so the users get notified if there are any broken…
