    It would be great if we had the capability to zoom in to a specific location in an ArcGIS.com application, click the "Embed in Website" option, and the current extent would be preserved when the map is viewed in a website. I have an ArcGIS.com "Trails" application that is saved at the full extent of all the trails. There are ten trails, each trail having its own webpage with a description of the trail. I want to embed a small map window on each of the ten different Trails pages to show a  zoomed in view of that particular trail... without having to create 10 different ArcGIS.com maps, each saved at a different extent.

    Would it be possible to add the current extent to the html code so that  maps can be embedded at different scales, but all reference the same ArcGIS.com application?
