      • Drag and Drop ordering for images, lists, documents

        Sitefinity severely needs a way to allow users intuitively manage an image/ document library. I just downloaded RC and read some forum post and was shocked to find that it is not in the 4.0 release!

        It is not realistic and userfriendly to ask the users to edit each item and change the ordinal! I hope telerik seriously consider this as it is one of the features that will dramatically increase productivity.

            4.0 will not include an e-commerce module. However, this module is high priority on our list. E-commerce functionality is tentatively planned for Sitefinity 4.2. Specific features or an ETA is not yet available.

          • Add more powerful Forums

            It would be great to have more powerful Forums module with features as: moving threads, paging, subscriptions, RSS for single forum and single thread, avatars, etc

            • Prevent used files from being removed

              In my previous CMS, I couldn't delete an image or file or media until I removed a reference from a page where it has been used. This was really good feature as no one could just remove the file or image from the library unless they removed the reference.

              • Subdomain handling capability

                This might be a cracy idea. But sometimes you have a lot of additional domains (let's say for products) that you want to be pointing to your site.

                Like www.mydomain.com is main domain
                www.product1.com, product2.com

                Would it be an idea to have sitefinity ready to map an domain to a certain page? So the homepage for this Domain would be product 1 for example.

                Kind of like when you give an extra url in 3.n you could assign an extra domain?

                Hope you get the idea - even if it might be carzy.

                • Link to internal Pages

                  Many times end-users want to link from multiple parts of the navigation to one site. In 3.7 you can use (external pages) with ~/pagename.aspx.

                  This is of course

                  a) not a usable workaround for endusers (find the ~ on a mac keyboard)
                  b) if the page gets renamed it will break

                  So there must be a "link to internal page" that would work the same way as in the Editor.

                  • Specify <head> where sitefinity css will be added to better control order of css

                    It should be simpler to get a clean site-wide css and conditional loading of stylesheets (for ie fixes or mobile support for example). Having the Sitefinity style sheets load earlier so that minor changes could be easily made to selected styles only would be great. Using !important everywhere as a way to get around the order in which styles load is painful. Some sitewide CSS should probably load before themes and sitefinity css, and those like IE fixes usually are conditionally loaded last. For the most flexibility, options to turn off all the sitefinity style sheets would also be great.

                    • In-Line Editing

                      Not sure why the other post was removed for In-line editing, but I think this would be a very useful and helpful to writters and editors... Specially if you could add a permission to a edit box.

                          Planned for Sitefinity 4.0 or 4.1. This feature will not be delivered with the upcoming BETA. This feature will provide power users with the ability to update their CSS in the administration interface They will be able to preview the changes and apply them. Access to this feature can be restricted using permissions.

                        • Implement SharePoint features like Outlook integration

                          As soon as Sitefinity could demonstrate even a subset of SharePoint features, like Outlook integration, we would likely never look at SharePoint again. Where's the Intranet-friendly options?

                          • Add customizable meta fields to pages

                            Currently, you can easily add meta fields (such as Events.Contact_Name) to any of Sitefinity's modules but there's no easy way to do this for a regular page.
                            Similarly, it'd be great if tags, categories, and/or comments could be easily applied to pages as well as modules

                              The API currently supports adding customizable meta fields for content and pages. We will offer the ability to do this via the interface after the BETA release.

                                Today in order to have syles in Site, Editor and Header Styles you need to change stuff at three different pages. There should be a simple way that you can control the syles. If you set <h1> in your .css for the site I don't want to have to set it for RadEditor (some css file) and the dropdown in tools (toolsfile.xml)

                                • micro-sites

                                  It would be nice to have one Sitefinity instance serve multiple sub site instances (micro-sites). This would help the upgrade process so that all sub sites are using the same core files but need the ability to have their own templates (you only see templates assigned to the micro site), their own themes (you only see their own themes), and their own generic editor instance (different micro sites may have their own styles).

                                  • printed ready version. master page / theme parameter

                                    It is difficult to create a printed ready version of the same page. It will be much easier if theme name can be passed as a query string parameter for the CMS engine to render the page with the appropriate master page and them. It will make creating a single page (content) for used with difficult master page / theme so much simpler.

                                    • Session timeout counter.

                                      Much like many online bank sites, I would like to see a reminder to pop up, asking the user to keep the Admin session alive when the session is about the expire.

                                      • Allow dialog box to close using the ESC button, instead of pressing the X icon.

                                        It would be great if we could close the dialogs using the ESC button.

                                        • Ability to Pin Image or Document Libraries at the Top of the List

                                          On many of our sites, we normally have one or two document libraries that are the most popular for cms users to manage. Rather than having to search or sort for the ones these users manage the most it wouldn't be a bad idea to have the ability to pin or unpin the most used libraries/galleries to the top of the list.
