I wanted to take a moment to express my sincere gratitude for the incredible work you've been doing with SP Page Builder.

As a webmaster and SEO specialist, I've had the pleasure of using SP Page Builder extensively and appreciate its versatility and user-friendly interface. It's tools like yours that empower us to create beautiful, functional websites with ease.

I'm reaching out not only to thank you but also to share an idea for a new plugin that I believe could significantly benefit the SP Page Builder community. While the current "Gallery" plugin offers great functionality, there's a growing need for an even more simplified solution that caters to the less experienced website owners – something that maintains the sophistication of SP Page Builder while being exceptionally user-friendly.

The concept revolves around an automated photo gallery plugin. Unlike the existing Gallery plugin, where the photo list is manually compiled within the plugin settings, this new plugin would automatically populate the gallery either from a designated FTP folder or through a direct upload feature reminiscent of uploading photos to Facebook.

For the FTP folder option, users could simply specify the folder path in the plugin settings, and the plugin would then display the images contained within that folder. Alternatively, the direct upload feature would allow users to select photos from their computer, which the plugin would then store in a predefined location on the FTP server. This approach would streamline the process of creating and updating photo galleries, making it accessible to users regardless of their technical expertise.

I believe this addition would not only enhance the functionality of SP Page Builder but also greatly improve user satisfaction by offering a more intuitive and hassle-free way to manage photo galleries.

Thank you once again for your dedication to improving the web design experience. I look forward to seeing the continued evolution of SP Page Builder and hope you will consider this suggestion for a future update.

Warm regards,

Thank you so much for your kind words. We are delighted that you have faith in us.

Now, thank you so much for your generous idea. We would love to know a little bit more. What are the possible use cases of this extension, if you may allow me to ask? Apart from the auto-uploading options, what complications do you have using SP Easy Image Gallery now?

Love the code editor size option!

If I could wish for two more things to see, it would be the same ability to show a larger normal editor, and for any addon that uses an image, have the ability to set the alt tag for that image.

That should be something for row and column backgrounds etc. too - anywhere an image can be chosen, the alt tag should be an option to set :)

It is indeed a useful feature to ask for an alt tag, I must say. Thank you for sharing your idea, Chris.

I informed the Support about that missing feature in all image related addons 3 month ago here: https://www.joomshaper.com/forum/question/28445

If it is still not possible to add an alt tag to EVERY image related addon then this is very SEO unfriendly.
And as i wrote its so easy: Copy the Source Code from the Addon "Image" -> adapt it -> test it -> roll it out -> Happy customer ;-)

Excellent work on the new features and fixes (some of them reported by me even in version 4 of SPPB), I congratulate you for it.

But they have to listen better to those of us who report bugs and failures.
2 weeks ago report of a Feture Box bug, well detailed, including the solution, ready to check and integrate, and integrating it would not take more than 5 minutes.

Nested row’s settings option added in the frontend editor:
Finally!!! Thx to the Joomshaper team. This missing feature was annoying.

Added Expand Editor option in the code editor (Raw HTML addon and Custom CSS editor):
I added a new RAW HTML addon but i cannot increase the window size.
How to do it?

Please write more detailed changelogs because often its not possible to find or identify what has been changed or what you mean!

Raw HTML addon and Custom CSS editor have now an Expandible Code Editor, well well.
But what about the much more important System editor that nearly all people use?
I reported 2 month ago that the window is way too small for 2k Screen users here https://www.joomshaper.com/forum/question/29072 but nothing happend. Still the half screen is unused and the window is not expandable.
