JA Page Builder RC Released - more powerful than ever

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

Revisions now available in JA Joomla Page Builder

We are pretty close to saying bye to beta version of JA Builder and release an RC version next week, which comes with some major changes and features.

One of the features is "revisions", which are stored for restoration at any later time. This feature can be tested on the JA Builder demo and would be part of the release next week.

The new feature will auto save the changes you did when editing the page (for now, each revision includes 10 changes). Meaning, after you do 10 changes, it will be saved as a revision. You can revert to previous revision to revert the content, pretty handy feature.

We chose later and here we are with our first sneak peak into the builder we have been working on for months.
