  1. Provide "proxy mode" option for Banned IPs

    When Kentico runs behind a load balancer, the Banned IP application is unable to react to the visitor's IP because the requests carry the IP of the load balancer. Microsoft provides a proxy mode in IIS to address this problem. A similar solution in Kentico would be helpful.

    • Custom table description

      It would be nice if you there could be a text description for a custom table. This could be displayed at the top of the table data list to describe the purpose of the table, or to give instructions for data entry.

      I'm thinking this could be either an additional field under a custom table's "General" settings, or an alternative form (with a custom layout containing only text) using a reserved keyword (like 'filter','insert','update' or 'newculture')

      • Support for OpenID Connect

        Support for OpenID Connect.
        Although OpenID 2.0 is supported on Kentico, it seems that the newer OpenId Connect is not supported yet. I am sure that in future there will be more clients wanting to implement Connect instead so it would be great if they benefit a native support instead of handling custom external authentications.

        • The ability to see what webparts are using particular transformations

          It would be a welcome addition to the kentico interface to be able to see where a certain transformation is being used. This could be implemented the same way as in pages were you can see what documents are using a particular page type. This would aid in the changing of transformations so we can track of what those changes might be affecting.

          • CSS List Menu - Additional Class Property for <ul>

            As you know, you can add css selectors to first, last, hover, mouseout, mouseover, and even add an id to the <ul>, within the web part properties.

            But why do you not allow css selectors to be added to the <ul>? jQuery is the only option to add classes to the <ul>.

            Just a suggestion, since you already have so many places to add css classes. Why not on the <ul> too? Also, because of better css techniques, you don’t really need many of the other options for adding css classes, if you have a class at the top level…

            • Search the entire Media Library and all sub-folders

              Is there a way to do a Global search in Media Library?
              I.e. when at the root folder, do a search that will find all the images in all subfolders?
              e.g. If I want to find all the "achill" images that are in the Media Library and I go to the root folder and search for "achill" -> no images are found
              I need to search each folder individually, so if I go to the sub-folder and search for "achill" => I find all the "achill" images in the folder
              Searching the entire Media Library and all subfolders

              • Allow Editor Stylesheet to link to an external file

                The Css editor for stylesheets is very limited as an editor. As a result, we keep our editor-styles.less with our other .less files and compile it ourselves.

                Then, I need to open the Kentico CMS and copy the contents of editor-styles.css into the Kentico Editor and save there. Then go back and check the changes.

                It would be great if we could link to an existing file like we can for webpart files for example.

                • Add a field within the Form tab for a 'Review Date' and extend Outdated Pages app

                  Within regulated markets our clients are requesting the ability to trigger notifications / workflows for content which needs to be reviewed rather than unpublish. Currently the only way to achieve this is to use the Outdated Pages app or develop a custom scheduled task. This could be extended with content for review and also trigger a notification email. This would be great to build into the core of the project given the enterprise reach of the product now.

                  • Allow multiple category selection in listing and datasource webparts

                    When using a repeater webpart for instance you can only select 1 category. Same is true if you use a documents datasource or a hierarchical viewer webpart. The API allows you to pass in multiple categories when doing a document or object query but we do not have this same ability to do so with any of the out of the box controls.

                    I come across this use case in roughly every other site build. Unfortunately, it isn't available so we end up performing a no-so-fantastic work around by using the API to get what is needed vs. using OOTB…

                    • Add a culture setting for pre-computing week analytics data

                      Currently the web analytics of Kentico use the en-US culture to store week analytics data. Which means a week starts on Sunday and ends on Saturday by default.

                      If a customer uses a different culture such as nl-NL, the graph period selector uses the international standard of Monday as the start day and Sunday as the last day of the week.

                      Selecting this will however result in a period of 2 weeks, since the weeks are rounded, which can be very confusing for the customer.

                      Preferably there would be an option to select the culture in which the week analytics…

                      • Ability to customize facebook og and twitter card metadata within the existing Metadata section of the Properties tab

                        There is already a functioning area to hold and edit metadata information with good inheritance rules. Can the functionality be expanded to include metadata for common social networks such as facebook and twitter? This is a widely requested feature by clients and the Metadata section in the Properties tab seems like a natural fit.

                        • Add "reset to default" button to widget properties pop-up

                          When setting default values to widget properties that are hidden, there is no way to reset the property value if the widget default values are changed.

                          For example, when adding 10 instances of a widget, they will have the hidden field values set as defined in the widget properties.
                          If the default values are then changed, all 10 instances of the widget need to be removed and re-added to the pages.

                          By introducing a "reset to default" button, the hidden field values (or all field values) could be "refreshed", without the need to re-add the widget.

                            • search input search term

                              Smart Search webpart should populate with the search term, if present. This makes it easily recognized that a search was performed, and if there was a typo, the user would see it within the webpart. This has become a standard in searches.

                              • Improve widget display in rich text editor

                                Editors have difficulty differentiating widgets in the rich text editor / CKEditor, especially in large amounts of content. For example, the BlogPostBody field may contain multiple instances of our "Article Image" widget, but they all appear as only an icon.

                                I don't know what the limitations are, and realize there may be efficiency issues since the lifecycle of the widget and web part have to run for the widget to display, but I'll put forward a couple solution ideas:

                                Option 1) Have "Show preview in editor" checkbox and preview dimension fields in widget instance properties. Instead of the widget thumbnail,…

                                • Include attachments in site analytics

                                  Currently there is no record of document attachment navigation. As these files are not located in a library or a file type, they are not recorded as a navigation. This metric is important to our business as we have implemented automated PDF document production for our pages and would like to understand how often these attachments are downloaded.

                                  • Create culture aliases with slash (/) e.g. ca/fr (French - Canada)

                                    I would like the ability to add culture aliases to be used as the prefix for the URL with a slash in the alias. The format would be CountryCode/LanguageCode. Currently the system allows you to save the culture alias in that format but visiting the URL will produce a 404 error.

                                      • Enable copying of the content of the widgets

                                        Unfortunatelly, if the widget is copied and placed in the content page, it lose its content. The copy has only the settings, but the content is lost.
                                        Can you change this behavior?

                                        • Forms - Ability to use a form without the page context

                                          I would like to be able to use the forms sometimes without the page context. Also a direct preview (URL) would be appreciated.
