  1. Language configuration for SXA

    SXA should (optional) know the intent languages of the site, for improving the experience for editors with Language warnings like https://github.com/jbluemink/Sitecore-Language-Editor-Warning know the intent languages can also help for SEO meta data, sitemap.xml, language switches and things like that.

    • Allow a developer to extend SXA by reference the SXA nuget packages

      • Provide free production licence for partners to use for their corporate website

        Allow Sitecore partners to use Sitecore to run their corporate websites, at no cost. This would encourage experimentation and provide good internal training opportunities for partners and allow staff "on the bench" to develop new features. AKA eating our own dogfood.

        • Manage redirects in Sitecore

          Managing redirects is a task any public site requires, but there is no method out of the box with Sitecore to do this.

          Instead modules like IIS URL rewrite modules can be used, but this requires developer involvement to deploy config files containing the redirects. This isn't particularly practical when a content edited wants to unpublish a page and create a redirect at the same time.

          As the number of redirects on a site can now typically go into the thousands, any solution would also require the ability to upload a CSV. Due to the number of redirects they should…

          • Add "uploadMediaStream" pipeline

            The "getMediaStream" pipeline is usefull only when you request media from sitecore.
            There should be pipeline where you can manipulate stream that is uploaded to sitecore, like resize image or compress image.
            I created something like that for my own needs but I think that it should be part of the platform.

              • Change field Source Calculation to use Pipelines for fields that support "Source"

                If developers were able to tap into and potentially customize the logic for setting the source of an image field, reference field, multi-list field, link field, etc. then much more powerful site-resolving field source logic could be written, as well as other customizations. This is especially important for media/image fields.

                The most common use-case I can think of is for multi-site or multi-tenant solutions. The number of templates for these solutions typically increases when fields are given specific sources. This issue is typically mitigated by either making non-specific sources (reducing the quality of the UX in the Sitecore Client), using…

                  • 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.

                      • 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

                        • 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

                          • MVC 'Areas' split-up under APP_Config/include

                            can expect MVC 'Areas' split-up under APP_Config/include rather than having module level split up to manage config changes much easier.
                            EX:
                            App_Config
                            Include
                            Sitecore/*.config
                            TenantA/*.config
                            TenantB/*.config
                            Global/*.config

                                  • 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.

                                    • 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…

                                      • 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).

                                        • 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.
