add a feature that allows one to design one's own modules!
This is probably a long shot, but it would be ideal for me if there was additional functionality to be able to design one's own modules into one's own portal.
For example, I'm a designer/programmer and I'm designing a page to feature new products that ideally should be updatable by my client. Each product is going to be wrapped in a div, and within the div are areas designed for the product logo & other images, slogan, price, category, a short paragraph description, and a link to more information. The look is standardized, but the images, text, url of the link, and background color of the div will change per product, as well there will be a variable number of products.
Is this too much to ask?? I'm a bit spoiled from working with developers in the past who have custom built a CMS around my design specifications, but really it would be a fantastic feature if HubSpot users were able to code custom modules that less advanced users could easily update their own website.
Hope you'll give this some serious consideration!
Custom modules are available on our COS platform – more detail here! http://designers.hubspot.com/docs/cos/custom-modules
Couldn't agree more!

This should be a must. It's currently a nightmare to have complex content layout and nice and clean editing within COS. Custom Modules would make my life a whole lot easier!

Hi, would it be possible to be included in the Beta group for this as we are currently rebuilding our site and this would be useful to have access to.
Upvoting.... while many Hubspotters are not tech savvy and might never use such functionality, there are doubtless MANY of us who would happily design our own components if we could :)
Wow! this is a well thought out request.
I think, because the CSS in a Hubspot generated page is so obfuscated and not articulated well, this one may be a bit of a challenge. My assessment is that there may need to be a rearchitecture to their 3rd-party extensions capability to allow for the current: content modules and your custom content modules, the 3rd-party functionality extension, custom templates, CSS and HTML5, common JS api libraries (e.g., jQuery).
I hope that my vote helps to accelerate this effort.
