Thank you for your suggestions. Let me give you some feedback:
Get rid of master pages, they suck!
We do not have any other complaints about them so far. This is standard ASP.NET practice since .NET2.0. Sitefinity as a ASP.NET CMS should support them.
Build in CSS
editing so all css files can be easily modified without the need to dig
into the site structure - this goes for all modules and plugins too
We do not have such an editor because we assume that the project is developed in Visual Studio, which have an excellent CSS editor.
Can the CSS for
the site be pulled into the editor as im already getting questions
about why its a different layout and colour etc
This is probably a question of nested CSS files. We should change the CSSes location though, in order to make the editing more easy.
When adding a
link you have to click ok twice, once to select the link and once on
the link properties panel ... why? this is a pain.
We have plans to rework all custom dialogs to become more useful and usable. What if you want to set some custom properties to that link? If you could elaborate on this, we would really appreciate it.
Remove all modules etc that drop in inline css into the site, thats just lame
I believe you mean that if you drop user controls, which take content from the modules, they drop a CSS statements, is that correct? If this is so, you can change every CSS or class of these tags. There is a CssClass property in the advanced options of the controls.
menus are implimented and make them more customiseable, for example i
want a simple horizontal menu or vertical menu without all the extra
spans and classes.
You can always built your user controls in the way you want. If you are using some of the RadControls in them for your navigation, we suggest you taking a look at Modifying built-in skins
independent css theming for modules, its just too hard to work with and
the idea is that CSS cascades, which causes problems when trying ti
impliment custom designs.
This is something that we should think for, as I stated above. Still we are open for any constructive feedback on where and how the Css files should be located and structured.
Sitemap generator - all sites need a sitemap (you could also auto generate/update a sitemap for google!)
There is such a implementation showed in our Forums
. We already implemented such a feature, which will be delivered with next major version of Sitefinity. It is a Web Service which will instantly present the structure to Google, when requested.
