  1. Improve the Text Block Editor

    This is a request to consolidate all the piecemeal requests for a real text editor in Text Blocks. I just finished building a Page-heavy site, and was surprised to discover that nearly every block of text needed to be built in HTML. Even simple formatting such as bulleted lists and mail-to links cannot be accommodated in a Text Block. I've seen first-hand how this deters new subscribers. See:

    • Text Box Editor: Add Background Color and Enhace Editor Options

      I have two requests to enhance flexibility of Content Boxes, and Text Boxes in particular.

      1) Add the option to have a background color and opacity slider specific to an individual content box. This would be especially handy for text boxes, where background images can interfere with the legibility of the text.

      2) Add a few more text options similar to what is available with Google docs, such as options to choose fonts, color, bullets, numbering, indentation and tabs...

      • Carousel without horizontal scrollbar

        Providers like Squarespace offer a carousel without the horizontal scrollbar at the bottom of it. It's much cleaner and consistent with modern UI trends not to have a scroll bar in the carousel. Having the scrollbar in our SmugMug carousel makes our sites look very dated.

        An example of a carousel without the horizontal scroll bar:

        • Content blocks stretchy vs fixed

          Content blocks should be able to be stretchy or fixed individually so titles don't shrink when adjusting window size.

          • Add Limits For "Recent Gallery" Options

            For "Recent Gallery" Options, you should Limits the numbers of Galleries and Limit the date.

            Now It works great but it stretches to the infinite of the page if you just uploaded 100 galleries.

            Add a "limit" First 2, 4,6,8,10 Galleries you uploaded.

            • Automatically expand accordion sub menu items

              It would be nice that SmugMug "remembers" after a page load which submenu item was selected and automatically opens the top-level menus and highlight it.

              It applies to accordion.

              At the moment, I had to apply a CSS hack to make it work:

              CSS code:

              /* expand if sub menu-item selected */
              .sm-accordion-item-has-children.sm-page-widget-nav-hasactivepage:not(.sm-accordion-item-open) ul.sm-accordion-children {
              display: block;
              }
              .sm-accordion-item-has-children.sm-page-widget-nav-hasactivepage.sm-accordion-item-open ul.sm-accordion-children {
              display: none;
              }
              .sm-accordion-item-has-children:not(.sm-accordion-item-open) > .sm-accordion-item-action > .sm-fonticon:before {
              content: '\E034' !important;
              }
              .sm-accordion-item-has-children.sm-page-widget-nav-hasactivepage > .sm-accordion-item-action > .sm-fonticon:before {
              content: '\E035' !important;
              }
              .sm-accordion-item-has-children.sm-page-widget-nav-hasactivepage.sm-accordion-item-open .sm-accordion-item-action > .sm-fonticon:before {
              content: '\E034' !important;
              }

                • Add Social Media Icon when using Custom URL

                  Allow upload and selection of social media icon(s) --> I've been exploring the social media site Ello (https://ello.co/) lately because of their focus on photographers and other artist. There is no Ello option in the Social Icon tool choices for customized pages. SmugMug has a Custom URL field as a catch all. It displays a generic web link icon. Suggest we’re allowed to add and select of our own icon when Custom URL is used.

                  • Rearrange photos in "Multiple Photos" Content

                    I have a "Multiple Photos" content in my main page, and I use the "Photo|Choose" as my Select Form. The photos appear in the order that I have selected them. With time, I want to change the photos in this block, and they appear at the end of the list. I would like to be able to rearrange the photos at any time, without the need to add the photos in the correct order all the time.
                    It would be easy if we could alter the order in the "Select one or More Photos" panel when the selected photos are…

                      Currently the maps block can only show 1000 geo-tagged photos, please can you extend the numbers to at least 5-digit or unlimited?

                      • Change Map Pin Color

                        On the current map content block, the map pin icons and the number of photo circle icons are light grey. The SAME light grey that the map is! You can't see the pins! Why aren't they red - the default color for pins on every web-based map that has ever been created? Ugh... maddening. My visitors look at the map and have no idea what to do with it because they don't notice the camouflaged pins.

                        • Let us add a border around text content blocks.

                          Without a border, some text looks out of place. It would be great to have an option to have a border around the text content block, just makes it look a lot more appealing.

                          The only other way we can do this is in Photoshop but it is quite time-consuming.

                          • Page Keywords and Keyword Cloud

                            Please can we have the Keyword Cloud link to Page Keywords.

                            Add an option to the Keyword Cloud of: -

                            Galleries (on by default so we don't break any current use)
                            Pages (just keywords used by Pages)
                            All (all keywords from Galleries and Pages)

                            This will help when using pages for page content in the site; and (to me) should be a fairly simple change.

                            please

                            Thanks

                              Make carousel blocks available in any size. 100% causes the scroll bar to overflow from page, 66% is just too small. Being able to have a carousel at any page % size would really free the design potential

                                • Allow us to freely place content on to a page

                                  The current way of placing content, such as text, on to a page is very frustrating. It would be nice to freely place content anywhere on a page.

                                  • Create Anchor or direct links to sections in the page

                                    it would be great if i could anchor the content blocks to give a direct access to a segment of a page or a direct link to an argument in the blog instead of browsing it all to the end to find the argument.

                                    It would be also great if the content blocks in html could be indexed to create a fast menu inside the page.

                                    • Galleries Content Block - Have the option to display unlisted galleries

                                      Let's say I want to create an unlisted page to share with some specific friends and family members on which I want to share some of my unlisted galleries that I don't want to be seen in public through the Smugmug Browser.
                                      Currently, there is no easy way for me to give them an easy way to browse through them.
                                      The only way I've found so far is by using the Single Photo content block and setting the Action On Click to "Go to Gallery". Unfortunately, not only it opens the gallery AND the selected photo in Lightbox, which is…

                                      • Carousel content block height adjustment

                                        I would really like if Carousel content block can have 75% as an option for the height, or even better if a custom percentage can be added. Right now for me, 66% is too small and 100% is too large.

                                        Many thanks.

                                        • Address video content block sizing inconsistencies

                                          Hi,

                                          When adding video to my site via a content block, I would like to be able to adjust the size of the video so it matches the size of videos added via the youtube and vimeo content block. At the moment it is impossible to expand the video content block to be the perfect size.

                                          Emma
