The Widgets extension allows the creation of raw HTML pages that can be embedded (similarly to templates) in normal wiki pages. You do this by creating pages in the Widget namespace.

They avoid the security problems of raw HTML in editable wiki pages because the privilege to edit in the Widget namespace is managed.

Many pre-written Widgets are available.
