Update: SP Page Builder 3.2 comes with major security fix and performance improvements

You know we update your favorite Joomla drag and drop design system SP Page Builder on a regular basis. And this instance is not any different. Our continuous effort to make your web developing life easier with SP Page Builder will never rest. This May, we’re releasing one of the most significant updates in SP Page Builder’s history. Today, the version 3.2 brings you the most number of improvements & fixes among all updates with some cool new features.

Let’s take a quick look at what’s new in SP Page Builder 3.2.

  • Important security update
  • Improved page and article searching
  • Performance enhancements
  • More stable Falang support

Let's see what do they actually mean for you and the end users.

Critical security bug fixed (Pro)

We are committed to protect you from internet threats and provide with necessary security updates as many times as needed. The users using SP Page Builder Pro 3.x are strongly recommended to install this update for security enhancements ASAP because we’ve fixed a critical security issue with the previous version of the tool.

Content search & page search improved

This update (v3.2) brings an improved content search experience for multilingual sites. Up until now, if a search query was performed, it would return search results for all the languages. Now the issue has been fixed and the users will get the search results of the specific language that is selected.

Previously if any article or page was added using SP Page Builder, it was not discoverable using in-site searching. This update (v.3.2) solves this issue completely. So overall we can say, the searching functionality is far better than ever! It's advised to reinstall Joomla Article Integration for a smoother experience. In order to do so, navigate to 'Integrations' from SP Page Builder left menu bar, find "Joomla Article" and click on 'Uninstall'.

Update: SP Page Builder 3.2

Now to install it again, click on "Install".

Update: SP Page Builder 3.2

The only thing left to do is, you need to enable "Joomla Article". Click on "Enable", it's done. 

Update: SP Page Builder 3.2

Performance enhancement

We have improved SP Page Builder’s frontend view performance in this update and reduced site loading time as well. We did it by dropping duplicated SQL queries and removing unnecessary language loading. We believe this will give you a smoother frontend editing experience.

Better Falang compatibility

We all know that Falang is a very popular content translation component for multilingual sites. For that reason, since the early days of SP Page Builder (v1.x), we’ve made it compatible with Falang. But in 3.x later versions, we’ve been getting error reports regarding compatibility issues. This update (v.3.2) fixes those bugs and improves Falang compatibility.

And a lot more

We didn’t stop there, SP Page Builder v3.2 brings you a lot more other cool features as well. We’ve added responsiveness functionality to the Gallery addon. New features including image/icon showing option, image width and margin option, content padding and background option have been added to the Feature Box addon. To Testimonial Pro, we’ve added icon styling and image positioning features.

Please note: All the users of SP Page Builder Pro 3.x are strongly advised to install this update since it comes with a major security improvement.

I'm still using SP PB Lite 2.5.4.
When I upgraded to SP PB Lite 3.x all the pages cannot be edited. When I try to edit an existing page, that don't show up on editor.
Today I installed SP PB Lite 3.2 and the problem is still worst! After I upgraded, when I try to edit one page, Joomla displays nothing!

Please, advice me.

It can be a template issue, please update to SPPB 3.2 Lite
Beside open new forum topic, comment section is not good place to solve deeper problems. Please check also our documentation section - v2.x and 3.x have FAQ

Hi guys. Now you have installed in the gallery of the default value for miniatures - the height and width of 200. Thumbnails of that obtained flattened. The user will have to check their sites to fix this.
Do not you think that such things can not be done? :o

That is improbable. Should be fixed if that happened and create another issue for existing page/site.

Hi,

Did you checked it in existing template or site? I have checked in existing template there is no problem at all. Also height and width: 200 was from the beginning as default value.

Thanks.

Yes really like the SP Pagebuilder progress and also maybe take up something from the WP themebuilder "rules" like exclusion rules, location rules and user rules etc but the Joomla way ?

Hello there,

[b]Google Font[/b]s for all Addons are not working anymore (SPPB 3.2 Pro)! Did you notice that? I've tested Text Block, Headings, Feature Box, and others (not templates overrides, but native SPPB addons).

Hi I noticed horizontally squeezed images on gallery preview for small screens after update to 3.2.1. Not sure if it was caused by some of my css or by the update. Anyway, fixed it in custom.css with:

/* for SPPB 3.2.1. gallery preview */
img {
height: auto !important;
}
/* end for SPPB 3.2.1. gallery preview */

Best

Hi!

I tried to follow your advice for immediately updating to 3.2 (I have 3.1.2) but I couldn't. I have no other explanation but this is because my subscription has expired.

In this case, since you say there is a major security problem, I think you should provide a patch that removes this threat.

Otherwise it all sounds like "Your site is in danger, the problem was generated by us but you MUST pay for a new subscription if you want it removed!".

I really hope I'm doing something wrong and things are not like this.

Please provide a solution.

Regards,

Catalin

I can make an exception for you, but do you get updates to the anti-virus after the subscription has expired ?

Paul,

First of all I wanted to thank you for making this exception and upgrading the SPPB for me.

Now I saw your comment and frankly I am disappointed to read this. Indeed I don't get free upgrades to the antivirus after the subscription expires BUT I don't get messages either saying that there was a major security problem in the previous release that I paid for and I should upgrade in order to remain protected! Really I am sorry to read your above comment because I appreciated your help.
