You have the potential to build something incredible. But without the right tool, you won’t be able to execute that. When developing a website in Joomla, SP Page Builder is that invaluable tool. The ultimate page composer tool has been in the market for a while and it has already proven its worth.

But you and I both know, if something stays the same, it becomes obsolete. New things are coming everyday, technology is changing on a regular basis. So, to keep you up to date with the trend, today we’re releasing an updated version of SP Page Builder (v3.2.7).

Let's have a quick look at what the new version has to offer.

  • New addon introduced
  • New features to the Video addon
  • Improved accessibility for multiple addons
  • Multiple locations introduced for Google Map addon

New addon: Article Scroller

The new Article Scroller is a great addon to display your site's articles . The unique style of this addon lets you present your articles elegantly. You can control which article to show, the layout, the design, the typography, and the color of the News Ticker or News Scroller. Basically, every single detail of the addon can be controlled from the addon settings. Judging by its design and functionality, I think this addon is going to be my favorite one.

Multiple locations in Google Map addon

Previously, SP Page Builder’s Google Map addon is used to allow only one location sharing option on the map. Starting with today’s update, you can add multiple locations to a single Google Maps frame. All the previous settings are there, no changes were made to them. You can still customize your map the way you used to.

Notice! Effective from June 2018, Google changed its policy for accessing API keys. You will be needing a valid API key and a Google Cloud Platform billing account to access the core Google Maps APIs. Otherwise, you may see a watermarked map with "For development purposes only" text on it. We plan to offer an alternative map based on OpenStreets in the near future.

New features in the Video addon

Until now, you could only share videos from YouTube or Vimeo with the SP Page Builder Video addon. You still had the control over the videos but you were only able to share the link from those sites. This update brings you the functionality to upload MP4 videos to your website server giving you the complete control over the clips. Currently, MP4 and OGV formats are supported.
