New Builder Features

Highlighting the Builder's new updates and features

Adjustable Builder Sidebar

In Joomla, you can now adjust the width of the sidebar. This is really useful for textareas where you write more text or code. You can also completely close and open the sidebar with just 1-click which makes working on small screens more easier.

Prevent Overwriting Layouts

Working in a team on the same page has never been easier. Now, if your layout has been updated by a different user, you will receive a notification and an option to reload the page. You can close it and resume working, but if you try to save the layout that was previously updated by another user, a modal dialog will appear. You will have to either save your layout overwriting the changes of another user, or discard your changes and reload the page.

Add Multiple Items

You can now choose multiple items from the media library. You can even select all items in the folder. This is a real time-saver if you have a huge gallery. Image galleries, photos, videos and more can be be added all at once.


As most of you probably know, WordPress is planning to release WordPress 5.0 with their new editor called Gutenberg on November 19th. This is the first step to integrate the Builder with the new Gutenberg editor and prepare it for the big WordPress 5.0 update.

Other new features include a re-organized settings tab, new max-width settings for grid items, a sticky save button in the Builder, and sticky Nav options for mobile devices. As always, feel free to call or email with any questions about new or upcoming features.
