I would be very interested in ...

True and plain CSS and HTML customization.

Let me upload CSS and HTML template files.
Just give us the place-holder syntax you use and enable uploading of real files. No limits. No crappy, weird online customizer.
Heck I don't like borders around everything and I don't want to deal with a thousand options for different borders you used in the template...

Custom pages are available for HMTL and coding, and we are working on improving those options to give even more flexibility.

    I flagged this on accident, didn't mean to. I definitely support this one, i've used a lot of html and css on my own page lol.

    I've already used CSS/HTML on my custom pages, it'd be great to have them on gallery pages as well.
    My biggest issue with my website is how little customization I can do to it. I've been able to add graphics to my footer as promotional "widgets" but i'd love to have an entire sidebar to work with! things seem very restrictive unless i want to create my own template, and i've done a fair amount web design and coding, but I'd love to just work with the template I have and mess with things as i go.

    I would definitely like a programmer to be able to customize my Zenfolio site to what I want it to be. I like the Zenfolio platform and it's a good foundation, but we should be able to customize it like just about any other site. Really just the main informational pages is all I would need to customize. That's the face of my business. The galleries and ordering are already good, but we need more flexibility with customizing other pages that represent our business. The limited page width doesn't make a lot of sense because with just about every other photographer's site I look at they're maximizing more space on a page and incorporating custom elements, and they're probably on WordPress or some other custom platform, but we need more flexibility with Zenfolio. We need the option to have a programmer come in and make it our own.

    Really? You are actually planning on this? Wow. Such a no brainer to offer this. Especially considering how terribly clunky your customization area has been for several years.

    Honestly...I really wish you'd give your software the same attention you give those Facebook marketing ads.

    We need more options for the header menu like for example to be able to adjust the spacing between menu items, which is now too big, and looks odd; there should be just one space between the menu text and the separator, and as it stands now there are at least 2, or 3 spaces, that makes the menu extend passed the page border itself, and looks weird.

    Why is the custom page width restricted (fixed) to 944 pixels? It seems such an arbitary and outdated limit (especially as the height is unrestricted, so why restrict the width?). Can this please be fixed - a switch on the custom design page to allow the user to choose content width to be set to "dynamic" Or a "defined amount" (defaulted, with 944px as default amount to avoid messing up existing custom pages)

    Just a simple folder we could store css and small amounts of java script in would be a vast improvement and take very little development time. I've used the api to create custom java layouts/slideshows/etc, but having to host them on another site is a real pain.

    I've made my theme was clean as I can with the theme settings, but it's not quite enough. In it's current state, it's pretty cluttered looking. With a little css, I could really clean it up. Being able to work with the template itself would be amazing since you could remove unused elements within the html rather than just hiding them with css.

    Tumblr and Blogger are great examples of sites with full template access.

    My subscription is up in September. If I don't have the capability to utilize CSS/HTML I plan to take my business elsewhere. I like the shopping cart features but I want to make my site more dynamic.

    I have a hard time believing we don't have the ability to edit CSS except on custom pages and the blog. I'd really like to do better things with my galleries.
