Language Management System

SP Page Builder is multilingual. Currently, the tool is translated into 12 languages so you can use it in other languages besides English instantly. If you want to use the page builder in your own language (which is not listed in the currently available 12 languages), please contribute to our translation project, and we will add your language as single-click-installable in SP Page Builder. Then all other users of your language will also get your language ready-to-use inside SP Page Builder.

With the new language management system, you get a single-click method in the component to install new languages. Then the page builder will be displayed in the languages accordingly with your site’s default language. It’s that much simple.

Display External Images via Links

In the previous versions of SP Page Builder, the Image addon only worked with uploaded images. That means, you could use merely your on-site images. From now on, with the page builder 2.4.7, the Image addon supports external images placed via links. So you can simply place the image link to the Image addon and display that image on your site.

Slide Interval and Speed Added

In SP Page Builder Testimonial Pro, Carousel and Carousel Pro addons, the v2.4.7 update brings two new amazing features that will wow your visitors. In the sliding elements created using the above mentioned addons, now you can add sliding interval and speed. The slide interval will define the time break between two sliding actions. And the slide speed will determine the speed of a single sliding action, that means how fast a slider frame will run from one direction to another.

We wholeheartedly believe this update will significantly improve your Joomla site building experience. So try SP Page Builder 2.4.7 now, and share your feedback with us. Thank you for choosing JoomShaper!
