    The Sitefinity team has to take a lot of feature requests, complaints and other stuff from me. Sometimes I might forget that there are people working on Sitefinity trying to do a good job. Sometimes things don't turn out as planned or might even not work at all.

    BUT, very often good work is done and nobody seems to notice and appreciate them. Some might argue that they are bugfixes and we deserve them. You are right. But the fire fighter and doctor get paid for their work as well and we still say thank you an appreciate their work.

    So this is my (and if you want your) Sitefinity thank you thread. Whenever I am real happy about a fix or new feature in a release (like the pdf/doc search function) I plan to thank you here.
    -
    As for 5.2 SP 1 -> I am really happy that image libraries are now sorted alphabetically.

    5 days and 14 hours with no other "thank yous" from anyone else. that is a bad sign. anyway, here is a thank you for revising the price on the NLB add-on. was $2000 now is $1000. much better. THANK YOU!!!
    ------
    Just noticed that the NLB will be $1000 only until 31st Dec, so I will have half of that THANK YOU back please.

    Dear Team

    I just used the sorting of images in a gallery again and thats a very nice feature. Also the ability to create thumbnail images is nice.

    Markus

    Things to improve
    Show images in image library the way they are sorted
    Image widget -> Show original size should be lightbox

    Yesterday I used the sorting of documents to have an order in a download table. Nice.

    Really is a treat.

    Markus

    Improvement ideas

    Have the documens shown in content - documents the way they are ordered
    And let me defina aditional wiget templates as I can do on other widgets. Not only change the existing one.

    Here comes another thanks you

    Did a course module today with module builder related course dates. Very nice. First time I did really use Thunder to fix the widget templates in VS. Just having 1920 pixel to work with is worth thunder.

    Markus

    PS: I know module builder will be multilingual in 5.3. Will we also be able to change stuff once the fields are created. Typo in description for example.

    Another great feature I discovered today.

    You can very easily get an thumb from a video you uploaded for the gallery.

    I did see the change thumb so went to photoshop to create them. Only to find out you can take it easy online.

    Markus

    + easy

    Improvements
    - Well the whole HTML5 Silverlight discussion
    - Some might to have their own thumbs. Did not see a way to upload/use own thumbs.

    Suppose I should also thank them for all the things they have helped us with in the last year:

    1. Hierarchical libraries!
    2. Fixing document indexing (I think, still gotta test it...).
    3. Helping to develop custom field types for images, docs, and videos for types besides custom modules.
    4. Helping to get automatic publishing between systems working, as well as automatic newsletter creation on item publish working.
    5. Helping to integrate a third party SSO solution into our implementation by helping navigate the authentication APIs.
    6. Providing implementations to automatically make all new pages have RequireSSL checked.
    7. Helping create a custom search widget that allows for filtering of items by tags.
    8. Providing help with getting an HTML5 JWPlayer based video widget together and running.
    9. Providing information and insight in getting a continuous integration solution in place that would work with deployment for Sitefinity.
    10. Listening to all of our requests and providing support without question, even when we might get snippy due to pressure from deadlines, etc., and being more understanding than the vast majority of support teams I have ever dealt with.

    Thanks again guys, and keep up the good work.

    Dear Telerik team

    Another big thank you. I have been using forms again for the first time since some weeks and it has improved so much.

    - Captcha
    - e-mails that can be defined
    - and more.

    So a big thanks for the improvments here.

    Dear Telerik Team

    Changing an image title no longer adjusts the url automaitcally. This is a huge thing since clients used to get multiple images with same url. This has been a request for change since 4.0.

    Thanks for making this happen.

    Dear Telerik Team

    I just want to tell you that I have noticed a huge improvement in bug fixing since you went the Internal Hotfix Build road. I reported two errors that were both fixed within two weeks. It used to take month to get a fix on stuff.

    Great if you keep it that way Support will be back were it is supposed to be and were it is with the rest of the Telerik products.

    Markus

    PS: If I get the one request of my many feature request done for 7.0 I will be smiling for 3 weeks :-)

    Dear Sitefinity Team

    Once again I want to thanks you for some stuff you make possible in 7.0

    - Selecting a thumb image that can be opened in original size (new browser tab) - my clients have been waiting for this a long time.. 
    - Naming Layout elements 
    - Allow site search to index this page  (exclude from SF search)
    - Related content for pages 

     These are just some of the great new features for me and my clients.

    Thanks

    Markus
