SP Page Builder 3.6.2 Pro Update: Joomla Caching Support, Addon Improvements, and Fixes

Developing a website should be as relaxing as listening to a music where you’ll enjoy every moment. SP Page Builder offers this experience. Crafting a website is fun with this Joomla site building tool. To make SP Page Builder more user-friendly, we update the extension regularly. After introducing Interactions in v3.6, today we’re back with another remarkable update. Presenting SP Page Builder 3.6.2.

I understand you’re now super-curious to know what’s hot inside this update. So here you get a handy version of the changelog for SP Page Builder 3.6.2. 

  • New: Joomla caching system support added
  • Update: Relative position option added to addons
  • Update: font-display: swap; added for Google Fonts
  • Update: Articles addon now removes HTML tags form introtext
  • Fix: 10 known issues fixed (details followed)

Joomla Caching System Support Added

SP Page Builder already implements a number of site speed boost techniques like CSS compression and Production Mode. Today we’re taking this game to a whole new level by adding native Joomla caching support to SP Page Builder. If you use Joomla’s caching option, now the pages built with SP Page Builder will also be cached. Long story short, a speed boost is ahead of just clicks away!  

SP Page Builder 3.6.2 Pro Update: Joomla Caching Support, Addon Improvements, and Fixes

How to enable: Go to your Joomla control panel > System > Global Configuration. Under the System tab, you’ll find Cache Settings section where you can turn caching on or off. To know more about Joomla caching, visit this tutorial.

Relative Position Option for Addons

With SP Page Builder 3.6.0 we introduced custom positioning for addons in their advanced settings. Initially, there were only absolute and fixed position options. But many of you asked for relative positioning option as well. So today we’ve added the Relative position option to the custom position dropdown. Besides other good stuff, this will help you solve any Z-index issue between multiple addons.  

Google Fonts font-display: swap; Functionality

The font-display: swap; CSS property support has been added to SP Page Builder to offer a better visitor experience. The texts of a web page built with SP Page Builder will be rendered using the default fallback font (system font of the device) until loading the Google Font that you’ve used on that page. Glitch.me demonstrates something like this in a convenient demo.

This will provide a more user friendly experience by preventing blank sections for texts while the font loading is still in progress. 

Articles Addon: No HTML Tag in Introtext

The intro text rendered in the Articles addon sometimes found to get broken due to HTML tags with the text. Not anymore, because we’ve fixed the issue and now the HTML tags in intro texts get removed. So, no ugly broken intro text any longer. 

One More Thing: 10 Known Issues Fixed

Every issue you report regarding any of our products is taken care with high priority. Plus, our R&D team always explores to keep things glitchless. Here are the fixes arrive in SP Page Builder 3.6.2.

  • Fix: Article ID and module ID overriding each other issue
  • Fix: The left editing panel’s broken issue after placing a saved section having long content
  • Fix: The left editing panel’s broken issue after placing a saved addon having long content
  • Fix: Contact addon not working in inner row issue

So if we had Joomla cache enabled before, it was not caching SP PB pages at all?

Not fully. Now Pages and SPPB module view can be cached.

What if we are using different caching systems? I usually have difficulties with Joomla's caching, but when I need a cache, I use the hosting company's version (for example SiteGround's SGCache). How would SPPB perform with one of those caching systems?

Caching from server script/option works regardless of the Joomla system. It works at a different level, more details can give you hosting support.

It also means that all Pages, Articles and Modules would be cached anyway by server script.

Probably Jot Cache uses it's own rules for content to cache, talk with its developer (V.Kanich). Only he can add support for SPPB Pro, not we.

1. Jotcache should indeed support SPPB pro. Very important.

2. Is srcset being added soon to have different images per breakpoint?

src and srcset
The srcset attribute is used to define a list of image source files, along with sizing information, so that the browser can select the most appropriate option.

When the srcset attribute is set, the src files will be used as a “fallback” or “default” image. If the srcset image fails to load, or if the browser doesn't support srcset, the src file will be selected instead. So it is very important to always include the src attribute in your images.

Good afternoon. I also use the standard system Cache plugin (page cache) on some projects with caching. This reduces the number of requests to the database when users access the site page again. Will it work correctly? Especially the addon sending email?

If SPPB Pro 3.6.2 is from legal source - yes. But spend 60sec on testing on your site to be sure, each website is different.
