Why SP Page Builder 2.0?

SP Page Builder 2.0 is a complete solution of building a stunning Joomla website in no time. With the brand new front end visual editing ability, now you can develop or re-design your Joomla site faster than ever. There is no need to save edits separately and switch between tabs to preview changes. It works in the blink of an eye.

Visual Site Building with Frontend Editor

With SP Page Builder 2.0, you can design/craft your website on the fly. Simply browse a page and edit any element directly on the frontend. There are lots of advantages of the frontend editing feature. For an example, while browsing your business site, suddenly you felt that a particular page element’s text could be look prettier if the font color is changed. You can just login to your admin account and edit the color without leaving the frontend area. It’s that much simple.

SP Page Builder 2.0 is faster than any tool of its kind you’ve ever used. Just open a page in its frontend or backend editing mode and start crafting. Everything happens in place. It’s unbelievably speedy and astonishingly easy. You must be a big fan of SP Page Builder 2.

While building a web page using SP Page Builder 2.0, you can see the output live. There is no need of refreshing or opening a new tab to see the preview. Actually the age of preview is past. With the frontend editing functionality, you see the result of every action instantly. No need to switch between tabs.




Your old good friend, the drag-and-drop feature of SP Page Builder comes with lot more power in the version 2.0. Now you can enjoy this feature on our brand new frontend editing functionality. It empowers you to organize and reorganize a Joomla site on the fly. Play with the page elements like never before.



Unlimited Undo/Redo Changes

Experiment is what innovation comes from. You must try a number of design tweaks in order to get the best one. But if you had to save and preview every time, that would be a mess. To abate this tedious situation, we’ve introduced the undo/redo functionality. Using this feature, you can instantly undo or redo changes while editing a page using the SP Page Builder 2.0. It’s a hugely useful capability that you will find life-saving.



Enable/Disable Page Elements

Now you can enable or disable page elements such as rows, columns and addons. That means, you can keep an element on the backend, but users will not see them on the live site. It helps you perform experiments and also add contents in advance on pages to publish them later in just a click.



Device Specific Responsive Controls

Currently, responsiveness is a global standard. People like responsive website designs because these are fit for any device whatever the screen size is. Still, on a mobile screen, you cannot display the whole contents of a desktop targeted web page. That could result in a longer page load time, which is a bad UX. That’s why we’ve added responsive options to the SP Page Builder 2.0. Using this functionality, you can control which column/row/addon should be shown/hidden on a particular device (desktop/mobile/tablet etc.).



Better Row/Column Management

While building a website, you are actually playing with some rows and columns. You are inserting contents on rows, dividing rows into columns and adding stuff to them. For making this workflow more intuitive, we’ve introduced a set of clever tools to dramatically boost the productivity in development. The tool lets you set the paddings, margins, remove/keep gutters and more.



Copy, Paste, Delete & Duplicate Everything

With the SP Page Builder 2.0, you can copy-paste rows, duplicate them in a single click, delete individual columns, add unlimited columns and do much more. It can help you save time and build a website even faster.



Access Control List Support

To strengthen your driving seat and administrative capabilities, we’ve introduced Access Control List (ACL) support on the SP Page Builder 2.0. Using this handy functionality, you can control which content will be available to which user (or user group). Utilizing the ACL feature, you can control the visibility of a page, row, column or addon. That means you can show/hide a specific page or element for specific types of users. This can play a crucial role in a better site management.



All New Media Manager

The SP Page Builder 2.0 gets an all new Media Manager integrated inside the component. You will find it extremely fast and incredibly user-friendly. The Media Manager supports a lot of file types and attachments such as:

  • Image: jpg, jpeg, png, gif, svg

  • Audio: mp3, m4a, ogg, wav
  • Attachment: pdf, doc, docx, key, ppt, pptx, pps, ppsx, odt, xls, xlsx, zip
