I assume the reason Esri switched to the new home page editor was to make it easy to create a home page and to ensure that all home pages are responsive. Which makes some sense. However, the existing editor is so limiting, it's difficult to create something that's really functional for our users or helpful to the public. Why do we have to use a gallery as a workaround to add buttons? It's difficult to create anything close to what we were able to create when we could adjust the HTML & CSS. I'm not suggesting Esri goes back to that. That seems problematic as well. My suggestion is to add more widgets to the editor: a button widget, a column & row widgets, a photo widget, a card widget, a carousel widget, a more customizable header widget, etc. And let us add links in the existing text block widget and choose our own colors. It doesn't have to be as robust as the Experience Builder. Create something like a pared-down Hub site builder, or the new Story Maps builder, but tailored it for a home page. Limit the widgets and customizability to allow for responsive design. That's what most of the new app builders do. But give us more flexibility to meet agency branding standards and the needs of our users.
