Is it possible to place an embedded template within a snippet? Reason is I have a client that wants to be able to use the Allow More EE Code plugin http://devot-ee.com/add-ons/allow-more-ee-code to insert certain items into the WYGWAM editor in normal (non-source). Since this plugin does not parse snippet dynamic data, I tried just placing the code [code]{embed="includes/.calendar"}[/code] into the snippet and to my surprise the dynamic data was parsed! Is it OK to setup a few snippets in this manner to allow the client to insert them were needed or is there a big drawback?
