    Hello!

    We are currently trying to come up with the best model for enabling Content editors and Marketers to compose parts of pages using widgets also on MVC websites.

    What do you think about the following:

    1. The most important part is to enable business users (Content editors, Marketers) to add and configure components (widgets) in within specific areas (zones) on a page

    2. MVC developers know how to create layoyuts/templates and can do that on their onw, only need to be able to mark part of the layout as a widget area/zone

    3. MVC developers know how to implement reusable components. If there is a unified way to register such components with Kentico to be used in widget areas, there is no need to develop hundreds of out-of-the-box widgets.

    4. The biggest wish for Content editors and Marketersis to be able to influence a section of a specific page,…

    I would agree with the comments so far on this.

    Being able to personalise the widgets is really important for us to have with the macros.

    It would also be important to know that if or should the layout/zones be changed on the MVC side, the widgets should not be lost.

    Are we okay to assume the default behavior we see in Kentico for widgets, e.g. copying and pasting will still be possible?

    Also if possible the ability to move widget up or down within a zone would be good to have, like we have for web parts.

    Hello!

    We are currently exploring the possibility to cover this idea. There are few questions related to Canonical links I’d like to ask:

    Do you prefer this feature to automatically cover most used scenarios (such as redirections) or do you prefer manual control of Canonical links?

    Automatically:

    If automatically, what would be the top required scenarios for your projects?

    Is the primary concern the variant of the URL (like http vs https, trailing slash vs non-trailing slash?

    How do you want to specify the format of the canonical link globally?

    Manually:

    If manually, then do you consider the Content editor to specify the canonical link using a selector or URL manually?

    Is the primary concern a page alias created for a page?

    Both:

    Is it ok just to handle links within a single site or there is also a need for links to external sites?

    Is the scenario covered by…

    Hi David

    I agree with Leigh, as we would like it to be automatic, but there will always be points when you want to override it manually.
    To add to this, it would be good to have some Kentico API to manipulate it via code, just in case we need to add some conditions around it and potentially change it according to what's displayed on the page e.g. Search Results is a good example.

    Thanks

    Hello supporters!

    We are currently exploring this idea and looking for the best solution.

    To better understand all the related needs, I would like to ask you a few things:

    1. Can you list the most typical changes you need to make to the page template and its head section?

    2. Is it ok for you just to be able to modify the Master page or do you need to be able to somehow modify also common pages and their head sections – via their templates?

    3. Do you prefer to be able to see and modify some markup directly or do think specific web parts with properties that are then injected into the markup are a better solution?

    4. Who and how often is going to do these changes? The developer suring development phase or a content editor during content authoring process?

    5. If we only talk about being…

    Hello

    For me the HTML tag is really important to amend for Accessibility reasons when using the Portal Engine approach.

    We need to be able to set the HTML Language, which we can't set without amending the PortalTemplate.aspx file.

    Thanks

    Hi Radek

    Sure no worries, I will try to explain here.

    The ordering of JS is really important. Basically we all know JS should be placed at the bottom in the Master page, on a Portal Template approach. So we can add this to the bottom just before the closing Body tag. So imagine I did this.

    Now for page templates, different pages etc... I want to run some JS code, but this code would run before the code we placed in the Master page. Due to JS requiring things to run in an order, this would mean we would need to try and do something different to make our code run.

    This is why I was suggesting to have a field/zone/area (not sure exactly what yet), but this would appear on all Templates/Pages, so then you can say Page 1 will run this Code A, Page 2 can run Code B.

    I am hoping this is all making sense.

    That is so far for pages, but there is no reason why we can't also have it for Page Templates. So if you add a web part of some sort then it knows to sit at the bottom, under everything else. Just like the Head HTML web part works, you can add this to any zone, but it know exactly where to put the content!

    We should look to create two things...
    1) Create a Form Controls field, that if added as a field in Document Types, it would allow someone to put some JS to be inserted to the bottom of the page.
    2) Create a Footer web part, that would allow people to add JS to the web part to be included at the bottom of the page below the items in the Master Page. This would be exactly the same as the Head HTML web part, but be for the footer instead. This would be my preferred option.

    I would be really happy to help progress this with you and really believe we need to find a solution to JS ordering. I think this is pretty urgent and would save us amending the PortalTemplate.aspx file and other Kentico core files for this.

    Thanks

    Hi Dominik

    Sorry, no the JS may just be for certain page templates, not for all. However should be available for all templates.

    Hi Ilesh, I agree with you that within Forms module there can be a lot of UX improvements. Path or URL selector is definitely nice improvement for Redirect to URL field. Waiting for more votes. Thank you!
