I understand that Smugmug templates uses content widgets to create and arrange site content (gallery, text, image, menu, etc)
However, there are times when I need to display content in something other than a block of text. A table for price lists is one such example.
It would be nice to have shortcodes available to be able to format text within a text widget. Kind of what Wordpress uses for formating content on a page. Do you want a table? Add the appropriate shortcodes and your content and the back end formats the appropriate HTML code. Need collapsible sections? Add a shortcode and content. Need an inline graphic? (something not doable now) add a shortcode.
By making shortcodes available you can still control the HTML parsing while giving your customers additional customizations.
Thank you for your consideration.
