  1. Allow Sitecore to be configured to use an out of process caching tool for it's internal caching (data caching, item caching, etc)

    I would like to see the current internal caching mechanisms to be refactored to one that uses a "provider" based approach. This would allow Sitecore to be configured to cache some or all of it's data using Memcached, Redis, or a custom hybrid in-memory/out of process implementation.

    • Copy and Duplicate should update datasources and links to copied items

      One common way of structuring data in the content tree is to put the component datasources in a folder directly beneath the item (e.g. in a /pagedata folder).

      When copying or duplicating an item the new copy of the item still has the datasource point back to the original item. This is confusing for content editors, who go ahead and edit the content only to find it has changed on the original page as well.

      At best, the editors have to open the new copy and change all the components on the page to point to the new datasources, which…

      • Additional Include File location for user defined overrides

        The Includes folder is getting cluttered with all the additional Sitecore configs, and now with the addition of Z.SwitchToMaster we are having to prepend more and more Z's to our own folder.

        I propose the addition of a new folder location, /App_Config/Overrides, which will patch in last and allow for project defined patches to be placed, keeping default Sitecore configurations separate. This is a simple one line addition to LoadAutoIncludeFiles() located in Sitecore.Configuration.Factory class.

        • Dynamic Placeholders

          Most of the time components(such as a tabbed view) would require to have the same type of placeholders set in it for multiple times. Most of the time we create custom functionality to programmatically connect a single Placeholder Setting Item to all instances of the named Dynamic Placeholder that appear on any page, regardless of quantity.

          • Always save standard values rendering field as a delta of its base template rendering field

            By default, Sitecore doesn't support rendering inheritance for templates standard value items.

            Scenario: TemplateA has a standard values items with presentation details defined ("__renderings" field defined). I create a templateB inheriting templateA. By default, templateB "__renderings" field is empty, so its inheriting templateA rendering. If I change templateB presentation details, Sitecore copies templateA "__rendetings" field value, apply changes to it, and saves the result in templateB "__renderings" field. By doing so, Sitecore is breaking the rendering inheritance. From now on, any change to templateA presentation details won't be reflected in templateB.

            A simple solution exists and is already used at…

            • Datasource Location and Datasource Template fields should be stored as GUID types

              The Datasource Location and Datasource Template fields on View Renderings, Controllers and Sublayouts are currently "Datasource" and "Internal Link" type fields currently, which is stored a string path and not a GUID.

              This leads to issues if the folders are moved around or templates are re-organised after having set these values. It breaks functionality in the Experience Editor when adding a component and the Select Datasource wizard throws an error/does not open.

              It's a lot of work to go through all the components and change these manually to the new location rather than these fields following best practice and using…

              • Sitecore.Logging: Update the Log4Net code or use official Log4Net releases

                Sitecore took the Log4Net code at some point in the distant past. Many new features have been added to Log4Net since then
                There is a more compelling reason for updating, and that is there are many third party Logging Providers (e.g. Raygun) that have out of the box appenders for Log4Net

                • Re-Index Tree for Single index

                  The developer tab in Content Editor allows you to 'Re-Index Tree'. that's good, but it applies to all indexes. I'd like the ability to re-index the tree for a single index.

                  • returnUrl=%2Fsitecore%2Flogin

                    Hi Team,

                    You would have gone through this but worth asking this now

                    Even with valid authentication, user would end up in same login page when you hit the below URL.

                    http://<yoursite>/sitecore/login?returnUrl=%2Fsitecore%2Flogin

                    I can understand the querystring which is being executed after the valid authentication but as an user i would expect to login once my authentication was successful at first instance.

                    Can we have a mechanism to stop this behavior by any means ?
                    i.e. stop redirecting to login when user is authenticated + ReturnURL is login

                    • Mass Item Manipulation

                      Many editors have the hard job to manipulate lots of content items and usually copy them, delete them or move them around. As this is usually a "item-by-item" thing, it is not possible to automate the job with a script and everything needs to be sorted out manually. An option to select more items at once and perform on them the move/delete/copy operations would solve the problem (e.g. by adding checkboxes or allowing to ctrl select the items).

                      • Images Optimization

                        I would like to have in the media library some builtin functionality for Image optimization (Jpg, png compression etc) In regard Jpg, would be great if you can transform the jpeg as a progressive jpeg in case it is not. It would also great to have some functionalities to resize the images in case the images are too big. There are already modules that do these, but it would be great to have it as part of the product
