    It could have gone to sugestions as well.

    Dokuments

    You can give two documents the same name which results in the same probleme we had with images. Two documents, one is gone!!

    You should be warned that you can not have two images with the same URL. The size still shows differntly but off course the URL points to one and the same document.

    When editin properties and click on open file you get the right document even though the url is the same as the others you gave the same title.

    Download List

    a) you can not choose more then one Library in a download list - its either all or one.
    b) The icon has red x on it ? Why - See image
    c) you can not choose your own templates only modify existing - if this would be true then you can only have one download list style
    d) There seems to be no way to sort documents like you can sort images That would defenitely be a big plus.


    Download Link
    a) you can not choose a template so you are left with an ugly link with the doc name or title if you filled it in.
    b) you can not change the name of the link.
    It would be nice if you could like you would enter a normal document link in content block give the link a different text. _blank (on/off) would be nice if you want to go XHMLT 1.1
    c) not sure if you can turn icon on/off for download link

    Hello Markus,

    Thank you for the suggestion. We have this logged for some time now - we will at least provide a warnirng message.

    Download List

    a) you can not choose more then one Library in a download list - its either all or one
    This is by design. If we allow documents from more than one library to be added the UI will become really complicated. You can organize your documents in libraries in a way you want them to be displayed on the website.

    b) The icon has red x on it ? Why - See image
    This is probably a bug. I will investigate a little bit more and if I reproduce it successfully will log it in our system.

    c) you can not choose your own templates only modify existing - if this would be true then you can only have one download list style.
    We have ideas to add this in the future but this is not planned or scheduled yet.

    d) There seems to be no way to sort documents like you can sort images That would defenitely be a big plus.
    Good suggestion, thank you. Will be logged for future discussions.

    Download Link
    a) you can not choose a template so you are left with an ugly link with the doc name or title if you filled it in.
    You can use a css class to change the appearance of the link.

    b) you can not change the name of the link.
    It would be nice if you could like you would enter a normal document link in content block give the link a different text. _blank (on/off) would be nice if you want to go XHMLT 1.1
    Will forward this to the team for furhter discussion.

    c) not sure if you can turn icon on/off for download link
    There is no UI for this.

    Your Telerik points are updated.

    The idea is not documents from various libraries but 1-n libraries.

    c) you can not choose your own templates only modify existing - if this would be true then you can only have one download list style.
    We have ideas to add this in the future but this is not planned or scheduled yet.

    To me this c) is important because it will give you an option to have different download list

    Download Link
    a) you can not choose a template so you are left with an ugly link with the doc name or title if you filled it in.
    You can use a css class to change the appearance of the link.

    Please keep the end-users in mind who would have to have a list of css styles to apply. This is not really handy

    Thanks for listening to our feedback.

    Hi,

    I can suggest another small thing. On Sitefinity we can create ours classications, but we can't use it to filter documents in Download List.

    If we have this it'll become possible to display documents from various libraries or not multiply libraries.

    Regards,
    Nicolas

    You can set categories to documents in a library

    Let's say you have created

    Library1

    with

    mydoc1.doc
    mydoc2.doc
    mydoc3.doc
    mydoc4.doc

    you can now create two categories (even/odd)

    give mydoc1.doc and mydoc3.doc hte categorie odd
    give mydoc2.doc and mydoc4.doc hte categorie even

    When you now create a download list and select the Library1 you can add a filter by categorie for example odd and only give mydoc1.doc and mydoc3.doc will be shown in the list.

    Yes but only if you create your categories into existing classification Categories.

    If you create a hierarchical type classification named myTheme and create category into it. You can't use it into the widget.

    All widgets take only classification Categories and Tags.

    @Nicolas

    I think hierachrical categories works as well in the download list.

    If I remember correct you have to douple click either the parent categories or the checkbox in front of it.

    Then you get the subcategories.

    I would consider this a bug or at least not very user friendly.

    Give it a try

    I probably make a bad explanation. I joins picture to illustrate.

    I create a hierarchical type classification (classifications.png) named 'Legal Categories'. In widget edition (downloadList.png) it's impossible to select a category who is in 'Legal Categories'.

    If you really structure your site and strongly typified contents of this one, you can't only use default one 'Categories' and 'Tags'.

    Nicolas

    Dear Nicolas

    Have a look at this screencast if this is what you are looking for www.marktold.com/screencast/categories.swf

    If you see your 'Legal Categories' then you have to double click it to open it up to see the subcategories.

    If you do not see your 'Legal Categories' then it's another story and I am not able to help you.

    Doesn't see my 'Legal Categories' and it's the real problem.

    It's not a problem of subcategories, the problem is on a step above. It's a classification problem, all widgets are hard code to get categories into default classification named 'Categories'. You can't use another one.

    Regards,
    Nicolas

    Hello Nicolas,

    Thank you for the detailed explanation. That is correct, the widgets are hardcoded for the default classification "Categories", which we realize is a limitation.

    I will log a feature request for this to be changed.

    Your Telerik points have been updated.
