SP Page Builder v4.0.5 Brings FaLang & 4SEF Compatibility and More

Hola SP Page Builder users! It’s about time you have something new in your favorite page-building tool. That’s why, in this update of SP Page Builder v4.0.5, we’re bringing you the much-awaited FaLang and 4SEF compatibility and so much more. 

Stay tuned to find out what this update is all about.

SP Page Builder v4.0.5 Changelog: 

  • New: Added FaLang extension compatibility
  • New: Added 4SEF extension compatibility
  • Fix: Removed Old Column Responsive Options
  • Fix: Row style not applied correctly on copy/duplicate (Pro Only)
  • Fix: Old Accordion add-on compatibility issue
  • Fix: Image drag & drop upload issue in Media Manager
  • Fix: Page access issue after upgrading from 3.x to 4.x
  • Fix: Layout JSON import issue

Get FaLang Compatibility

If you were waiting for the FaLang extension’s compatibility with SP Page Builder 4.x, then today’s your day! SP Page Builder v4.0.5 is now fully compatible with FaLang.

The compatibility was already present in SP Page Builder 3.x and now with today’s update, you can use FaLang with SP Page Builder 4.x to translate the addons and make your site multi-lingual.

4SEF Compatibility For SEF URLs 

4SEF is an integrated solution for generating SEO-oriented SEF URLs for your Joomla website. It uses the same modern user interface that powers 4SEO and retains the same SEF URLs that sh404SEF produces but is re-packaged for some improved features. 

And the good news is SP Page Builder 4.x is now fully compatible with 4SEF. Now, you can use the extension with SP Page Builder to generate SEF URLs for pages of your site. 

Set Column Size Without Using Class

Previously in SP Page Builder 3.x, you could control the Mobile and Tablet view for columns and set the column size using class. 

Column Resize in SP Page Builder 3.x

But in SP Page Builder 4.x, you can easily specify the column size for every viewport and don’t need to set the class for columns. The options Tablet Layout and Mobile Layout still existed in SP Page Builder 4.x which created a lot of confusion among the users. 

Therefore in this update, we’ve removed these two options for clarity. You don’t need to set any class for tablets or mobile layouts. For each viewport, the width of a Column can be adjusted by clicking and dragging on the Column boundary. Or you can specify the width by entering a percentage number into the input field that appears above. But first, you have to disable the "Fill Columns" option from the row settings. Please have a look at the video below to see how to do that. 

Update your SP Page Builder to enjoy the latest features and fixes. Let us know your feedback in the comments. We’re all ears and your kind words inspire us to make SP Page Builder the best of its kind. Good day!

You can use SPPB module inside the popup window made by Engage Box. Or have you thought about something different?

They have removed the only column options that were useful, the current one does not work as it should, it needs more flexibility. for example in SPPB3 pordias add 4 columns (3+3+3+3) and in tablet turn it into 2 rows (6+6+6+6 or other combinations according to the content) the same in mobiles.

Now in SPPB4 if you add 4 columns in desktop you can't convert to 2 rows of 2 columns in tablet landscape or tablet portrait until in Phone Lasdscape all columns become full width and it gives you the ability to drag to create column widths a will created 1 row of 4 columns or 2 rows (1 of 100 and 3 of 33.3) This same feature needs to be available for all devices or at least up to Tablet Landscape.

Another important point is that the Media Manager when you access the Joomla IMAGES folder, disappears with the whole editor, please fix this.

Excellent does the job, but the option is hidden, it takes 3 clicks and even so you don't know what it is for.
If you put a lock icon next to the percentages of the columns, I think that people would have more options to discover this feature and how it works that from what I see this great works independently for each device.

Yes, you can move rows using the Layers tab, hover on a row inside to see [:] icon that allows you to move up / down

Good to see that things are moving forward.
Unfortunately the error in article.php is still there.

Only empty has to be changed to is_array.

This was reported by several users a month/weeks ago and Toufiq responded with a fix.
Why the problem was not fixed, although only one function name was changed, is unfortunately completely unclear.

See: 16859, 16988, 16995

For all with the same problem.
> syntax to use near '2) ORDER BY `lft` ASC' at line 3

Here is what you need to change:

- open the file components/com_sppagebuilder/helpers/article.php
- changed the line 53 from !empty to !is_array

That solves the problem.

I've been an admirer of Joomshaper for years but I have to admit that the new SPPB 4 version practically made website development unfeasible. Whether in Chrome or Firefox, I can't use SPPB 4 without it crashing. Some of the problems presented: out of memory, saving does not work, crashes, slowness, properties of add-ons does not load, browser degradation and other flaws that make using SPPB 4 unfeasible. I am very disappointed with the paid version. I hope Joomshaper is aware of this and all the complaints I read on the forum. I pray they reverse this as soon as possible and that it doesn't trigger the end of Helix and SP Page Builder.

I don't know your level in site building, but I'm already making a fourth site on SPB 4 and everything works fine. Yes, there are shortcomings, but they are not critical. I am especially pleased with the new functionality of layers, it is very convenient to work than it was before in the admin panel.

I don't take anything. Well, what should I write if everything suits me and everything I do works?

There are problems and I write about them on the forum. But not everything is so bad.

My Dear Dmitry, there are some very serious errors... very serious. Even you can't deny that.

To ask others here about their "level in site building", I find very daring, at least Pagebuilder is just made for newbies and should not be of use to any real professional.
The many posts in the forum show that only too well.

Be that as it may. This should not be ours to evaluate others according to their skills, but to get this "Pagebuilder" finally again from the twilight sleep. And that is unfortunately only possible if you report the many extreme errors.

The "Support" and also the "Development" seem to be hopelessly overstrained. They can't cope with the many requests... and that means my best, the system is just about to destroy itself through ignorance and arrogance.

Many had complained... and nobody wanted to listen.

I doubt that someone who uses ready-made elements here should call himself a graphic designer, or even a web designer. Keep your feet on the carpet. This is a modular system. You are just using a virtual Lego and trumpeting here how experienced you are?

Happy building and a nice day.
