Great, there is a 6.0 roadmap. Thanks for that!
Thumbs up for the Canonical URL Service! It sounds promising, although the details are not clear to me yet. Does this mean that Sitefinity can now easily generate an XML Sitemap for SEO?
Regarding SEO: Will this public issue be solved by any chance?
Most importantly: what about the long list of bugs, missing obvious features and missing documentation? Will 6.0 solve this as well?
I hope that more details on the 6.0 release will be posted soon. Thanks!
As usually I have a long list of wishes :-)
I guess I am repeating myself.
Hierachical libraries are great to have
- also http://www.sitefinity.com/developer-network/forums/bugs-issues-/5-0-se---permissions-on-image-libraries-and-manage-image-libraries
- make sure that we are able to pick them properly. Some stuff is still not sorted alphabetically
File upload move from Silverlight
- Great news
- While you are at it
Image-Widget still has a lot of improvemnts
- How about finaly having the ability to select thumb and large images and have the large ones open in lightbox style). That's a very very common szenario
Prevent restricted documents from beeing index in search (and extract displayed!!!!)
Did I ever mention that I dont need to have my clients see the 3.7 migration after 2 years.
Disable the migration module by default (dev should know where to enable) and hide the 3.7 migration stuff when module is disabled.
Simply let me start with pages if the dashboard does not get any 3.7 functionality
And of course there are a ton of PITS issues and bug/feature request that would make SF 6.0 simply more userfriendly.
This is also an old request. Please fix all the existing problems before bringing new stuff with new problems.
That's a fine list and I hope Telerik will respond to it soon. I agree 100% with your statement "Please fix all the existing problems before bringing new stuff with new problems." It's crucial for the future of Sitefinity to get back to the quality level I think it once was.
Don't get me wrong. It's a wish list :-) Like x-mas you not always get what you want. And like in the past I have been happy what you provided.
Have I been asked to take the poll. And did your customers say they did not want it or just that they would like other stuff more ;-)
As for the Dashboard request. I am not asking for much. Simply being able to start with pages would be great :-) And thats much easier to do then adding sharepoint connection.
Also fixing everything is broad you are right. So whatever gets fixed I take :-)
Again - I am just posting my wishes, because when you never tell your mom you want a puppy you might end up with a cat.
Waiting for 6.0 happily because it will come out sooner the x-mas.
Is there a general dashboard PITS item? If so, I cannot find it.
The closest I could find was creating a customizable dashboard, which would be great, but for now I think a simple count of items and links to draft/pending content would be great and a quick win for the Sitefinity team.
This is heavily requested from my customers and something they're used to seeing in every other CMS they've tested.
Thanks for your reply Ivan. I really appreciate that you will fix the issue I linked to. That's an important improvement to the product.
As for "fixing all existing problems": that's a matter of how one defines "problems". I would like to define it as "bugs confirmed by Telerik", not as "everything customers have asked for". Getting rid of confirmed bugs results in a better product and a happy user base.
Also I feel that complete documentation is very important. I know that's a lot of work, but it would save the customer and your support staff so much time if there was more information and examples available.
I'm looking forward to 6.0!
We cannot guarantee support for platforms that were released after a particular version of Sitefinity. The requirements you see are for the latest version of Sitefinity.
However, I use Sitefinity personally for my blog and it runs on Windows 2012 with SQL 2012 through Arvixe and I have no problems. I also haven't upgraded it from 5.1 yet.
I hope this helps.
