      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.

    • 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.

        This feature is planned and will exist in the official release of 4.0. It will not, however, exist in the upcoming BETA release of 4.0. Concepts or wireframes for this feature have not yet been finalized. After the BETA release we will release information about this feature.

      • 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.

          • 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.

                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.

              • Styles for Editor

                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)

                • Provide Training: How To Extend OpenAccess within Sitefinity 4.0 for Developing Custom RIAs

                  It's my understanding that Sitefinity 4.0 is using OpenAccess for its database transactions. Being relatively new to Sitefinity and knowing very little about OpenAccess, I would love to find out how I would go about extending Sitefinity 4.0 and/or OpenAccess to take advantage of this built-in ORM for developing my own RIAs using Sitefinity 4.0. (I'm assuming this is all possible - I hope so.) Is this process different when working with Sitefinity 4.0 than it would have been using OpenAccess by itself? If so, how is it different? Even just a basic development example with a couple of new…

                  • Up-to-date Documents, Resources and regular maintenance please

                    At the moment, when I want to do so anything "new" and not out of the box, it is often a uphill struggle. I don't want to post a "ticket" each time, as I understand you are all very busy people with the new version. However, I find that I am forced to create tickets as I am unable to find (working) answers in the resources we have been provided with.

                    1. Forums: Searching the forums is great sometimes but I am sure alot of people share the same pain as I have to often endure. Finding posts that say…

                    • 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.

                            • Mobile version - would be good to have something like WPTouch.

                              Would be handy to cater for mobile devices without having to create another site.

                              • 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.

                                  Whilst http://stylebuilder.telerik.com/ it lacks many of the Sitefinity components and the files it generates often leave 'gaps' that you end up having to style yourself.

                                  • Add 'auto-admin' for meta fields, modules and content types

                                    See CCK module for Drupal as an example. This would save so much time when building modules and adding meta fields to existing modules and pages.

                                        • Create smarter page editing

                                          Right now, Sitefinity renders the edit div toolbars and edit controls in the page body. This is dumb. It breaks the CSS of pages (what if people use child selectors?), doesn't properly anticipate z-index ordering, and unexpectedly applies styles to the toolbars, breaking the edit controls.

                                          The page should render untarnished in an <iframe> and the editor controls should creatively position edit frames over content in order to provide editing support. This, of course, supports the In-Line editing modes that have been proposed.

                                          Also, can someone please tell me why, Why, WHY OH GOD WHY a WYSIWYG dialog box is…
