Custom HTML Block

Lego my blocks

This is a feature request. I want every future post on this network to have the title "HTML Block". Who's with me?

I'm sure you get the point and I can't imagine this has not been brought up before. Again, ease of use for the admin of site running a site is the focus here because they are the primary customer.

Imagine having the menu editor where each of the menus were called "menu" and only after clicking edit you could see the related information. Some would bear with it but I am sure would welcome individual naming of these elements. No developer would want to work with a program that would not allow you to name certain elements for easy categorization if they had the choice. Naming items saves time and avoids confusion.

Another key benefit in naming items

Another benefit of naming items is the possibility that these items once uniquely named could find a storage area in available blocks allowing for their reuse. In other words, they could become "custom blocks". If I wanted to use an "HTML Block" with custom htlml currently I would have to copy the code create another "html block" and paste it and save it in a similarly named "HTML Block"

Only Social Engine benefits from being able to have their custom named boxes used over and over. This limits an admins creativity and innovation in being able to customize their site with their own custom uniquely named "HTML blocks"

    Garfield I spelled Custom wrong in the heading. Just acknowledging that. Also the first line in this post is not serious. It was meant to make a point about the inability to name the HTML Blocks. I would edit all this but my editing time expired on this post.
