Form Builder Addon With Limitations on Character Counts

Character Limitation for Textarea

Form Builder addon now comes with a separate option to limit the character counts for the users. This feature will come in handy if you want to restrict the number of characters your users can enter in the text area. To access the new option, simply navigate to the General settings of the Form Builder addon and choose to edit a form item. Choose ‘Textarea’ for the ‘Choose Field Type’ option. This will display the Maximum Character and Minimum Character options from which you can set the range of the character counts according to your preference. 

Person Addon Now Lets You Link the Person's Name

Link Option for Person Name

Now the Person addon comes with a separate Link option to let you make the person’s name hyperlinked. Simply choose the Link option from your addon’s inline editor and insert the link in the given field. As simple as that!

Fixes and Improvements

With this update, you will also get the fix for some annoying glitches reported by our users following the previous release. Let's see some of the noticeable ones:

Drop Multiple Div Addons Smoothly

Previously, users were facing difficulties while adding multiple Div addons within the same column. This issue has now been fixed and adding multiple Div addons should be simpler after this update!

Responsive Issues in Multiple Addons Fixed

Many users encountered difficulties with the responsiveness of addons such as Contact Form, Carousel Pro, and Article Scroller. We have now resolved these known issues, and they should be functioning correctly with this latest release.

Also, other bothersome known bugs in the Image addon, Alert addon, and Articles addon have also been taken care of. Check out the changelog to know more about other fixes that come packed with this version.

As far as I know, from version 4 onwards it will not have a backend editor. Or when they said yes?

eCommerce is delayed because of the backend editor's development.

You need to improve the editor so that the sections recover the desktop paddings on mobile if these are not set. This is important for sites migrated from version 3.x, because in that version there was only no option for phones.

The other important thing to improve is that the sections should not have the default padding of 75px for all devices, maybe for XL or LG, because in most of the times the space is the same for all devices and set the same for each one just generates css crap, plus it's a waste of time changing those 75px on each of the 6 breakpoints, and having to do that on every section you add really is a waste of time.

I hope you consider it and thank you for solving the cases reported by me.

So you haven't even fixed the major issue, when the SPPB open up with the Laptop view (while I am on desktop) ? What about the missing Font size (when editing the text) ? What about changing Headers in the editor not responding ? What about the problem with Pages suddenly disappearing when copied ? So far I do not see one issue I reported fixed, then for me this is'n really great news.
On top of that I looked up SPPB v3+ and the interface is way much better, so I do not understand why you guys do not ask users first (just a simple survey) before you implement something that most users do not like ???
Floating menus, and front end editing being an example,...
