Current HTML Editor doesn't allow for addition/editing of source code e.g. adding link tags to custom pages doesn't work anymore

Feedback from Crowdmap deployer

Hello support!

Palestine Crisis Map (crowdmap) and Stay Human (standalone) deployments desperately need an upgraded html editor.
At minimum, we need to be able to edit Pages with images, without losing the Page upon Edit>Save. Our current editing workaround is recreating Pages we need to edit from scratch, using as baseline copies of current Page code we've saved externally.

Ideally, in addition to an editable Pages, we'd like to be able to embed widgets such as Google Earth kml viewer, and mp3 audio Flash player. (Google Earth KML viewer was displayable in Ushahidi Crowdmap page, via <script> tags, a year ago.)
I noticed that Ushahidi harassmap.org uses Wordpress external site ( blog.harassmap.org ) for Ushahidi home "About" link. Its a workaround, which only shows how much an upgraded editor is needed!

Then another thought came to me, if Wordpress can handle Google Earth embed, and other "advanced" code, why, in principle at least, cant Ushahidi? Are the security considerations these platforms have to take into account so very different?
All best,

The html editor should allow for adding/inserting of images to the pages.
