Modern Content Editor Web Part
It would be nice to have the option to place a web part on a modern page and add HTML to it. We don't always want to jump to SPFx for something simple. It would help add some flexibility to the modern pages.

I will not be using modern pages until CEWP or other OOB method for implementing HTML/CSS/JS is made available.
Yes we need this

Pleeeeese! It's the most common, practical, useful and logical component found in any noteworthy CMS... we are all beholden to shape of the cookie you've cut, now let us add a few sprinkles!

Please bring back CEWP!
Gabor Nemes commented
Don't make SP users' life harder and give back our CEWP! :)
It can't be said enough, and everyone has said it...add the SEWP and CEWP capabilities back! I need the autonomy to brand and funtionalize my site collection.

It was nice to be able to add a Content Editor Webpart to a list or library to add information about this. Why was this taken away? It doesn't appear to be available anywhere even on a Wiki Page.
This is just awful. Microsoft released a new update that is causing a problem for our user and I cannot fix it thanks to this being disabled.
I used to go to the link - <site>/_catalogs/wp/Forms/AllItems.aspx and add the CEWP or Chart webpart but now despite having SCA access, it says access denied when using modern site.

This is an essential feature. Please replace the original content editor Web part with either something similar or superior. This is a breaking issue for migration to modern sites and pages.
Totally agree. This MUST become an available feature. To run EVERYTHING through the SPFx dev pipeline is an unwarranted burden.
This is such a hindrance. I cannot believe there are only 100 votes!!! *cries in jQuery*
I realize this when my current organization disable the feature and CEWP no more available .
CEWP should available by default in classic /modern page for O365 .
Without a way to customize a page, SharePoint is just a document repository. The webpages that can be built as Modern pages are laughably useless except to show that there is some type of customizable functions available. A good web page has 'pop', but the modern page, as currently designed, is very boring and limited as to what can be displayed. The Content web part and the Script Editor web part provide the required capabilities to fully customize SharePoint as a viable web platform and will provide the 'pop' webpages need to be user friendly.
As far as providing power users the ability to mess things up, well, there should be consequences for trashing a site and the offender should be reprimanded or fired. Power user permissions shouldn't given to everyone. Only a few trusted individuals, like site administrators or developers should be allowed to edit pages. Locking down SharePoint is not difficult. Saying no for some is. One bad apple shouldn't spoil it for the rest of the users.

I work for the DOD, and currently using SPFx is not going to be a possibility for us. It just requires too many admin permissions in the tool chain.

The drawbacks to allow this to CONTENT AUTHORS is far to much and the risks to break standard functionality is too hight.

@Sean...that is a really nice solution, but I need a web part to read query strings taken from the URL so that I can have a single page that is dynamic.
There are a couple of options that may help you out here.
