What’s New in SP Page Builder v4.0.6?

This week's update shines a light on a few new additions to the existing addons that will come in handy for many of you. Let's check out in detail what these additions are about.

Alt Text Field for Image in Feature Box Addon

Image Alt Text Field

With this latest version of SPPB, you can now add ALT text for your image in the Feature Box addon for creating a better user experience for your visitors.

Last Modified Date Option Added in the Articles Addon

Show Last Modified Date

After this update, you can add the time your article was last modified. Simply choose the Articles addon and go to the Articles Settings > Options and scroll down to enable Show Last Modified Date. Upon enabling the option you can also input the latest modified date text in the given field.

Video Title Field Added in Video Addon for Better Accessibility

Video Title Field

Previously, our Video addon didn’t have a separate field to add alternative text to your videos. In this new update, a new separate field has been added to let you add your alternative video text to improve video accessibility. You can access this new field from the Video Addon’s Video Settings, just below the Video URL field.

Check-out Option Added to the Bulk Action Dropdown List

Check Out Option

The Bulk Action dropdown list now also comes with a Check-out option. Go to your SP Page Builder Dashboard > Pages, simply choose the pages that you wish to check out from the list of your pages, and from the Bulk Action dropdown list choose Check-out. Hit Apply and your chosen item will be checked in immediately. You will also notice a Success message at the bottom of your page.

Effortlessly Add Youtube Shorts Through the Video Addon

Enable YouTube Shorts Option

Adding YouTube Shorts to your webpage has never been easier. After this update, you can now add your YouTube Shorts video simply by going to your Video addon’s video settings and enabling Add YouTube Shorts. Choose your Aspect Ratio from the 3 given options and add your YouTube Shorts link in the Video URL field. You are all good to go!

Sort Columns Within the Same Row With the Drag Indicator Icon

This update also brings you a Drag Indicator Icon to easily let you drag and sort rows within the same column. Upon hovering over each of your columns you should notice a small gray rectangle icon at the top left corner of your columns. Click on that and drag the columns and sort them out to fit your need.

Expanded Text Editor’s Area Size for Better Experience

Previously, some of you have had issues with the minimal space of the SP Page Builder’s text editor. After this update, you can now enjoy a broader and better text editor area to give you a better experience while writing long content for your webpage. For convenience, you can also find the editor adjusting itself when you resize your browser screen.

Miscellaneous Improvements

In the Opt-in form addon, the ‘Add SendGrid List IDs’ option has also been added for the Sendgrid option in this update. Also, any problems you might have had creating your custom addon should be sorted now as it also comes with improved Custom Addon support using Joomla Plugin.

This new version also comprises important fixes along with new features and improvements. The issues related to the Image Addon showing demo image in the preview, DIV Addon global CSS working issue as well as the Google Recaptcha Issue In Contact Form Addon has now been sorted out. Previously, the Hover Box Shadow in Feature Box Addon worked in the editor but didn’t show in the preview mode. This issue has also been taken care of. 

To know more about more fixes that come packed with this version, check out the changelog.

I have reported many errors, with videos, images and where the error is, they are important errors and none have been solved, one of them is that the Slideshow continues to use bootsrap 3 breakpoints, slow loading, etc, etc. I congratulate you for your work, but I am also disappointed because errors that I have reported since version 4.0.0, others since the RC, are not solved.

The issue with the media folder is again not fixed. When inserting an image from the media folder, the page builder freezes. This issue was already reported in the first version 4.0.0. It is still not fixed. When will you finally solve such unpleasant issues. For me the page builder is not usable until this issue is solved, because I save my pictures there.

I have tried it in Firefox, Chrome, Edge, same result. As you can see it happens in the article integration
Watch the screencast. You should be able to reproduce this on your side.
