Joomla Tutorials, info, Discussions and much more...

Took us more time than expected to reach RC stage. Well, we were not all that pleased with the structure of the blocks and so we rewrote them, improved workflow and features based on member's feedback. There is still a lot to do but it would be at a much much faster pace and the foundation now is rock solid. JA Joomla Page Builder release candidate version is now available for everyone to try their hands on. Some of the important features are as below:

  • New content block structure
  • Improved editor tool
  • Page import & export
  • Revision history
  • Popular Framework templates and 3rd Party extensions compatibility

4. Revision ready

Amazing new feature - "revisions" is now available, where one can revert to old changes with ease. The new feature will auto save the changes while editing the page (for now, each revision includes 10 changes). Meaning, after 10 changes, it will be saved as a revision. You can revert to previous revision to revert the content, pretty handy feature.
