Flex Grid

Post by Pablo » Fri Apr 20, 2018 5:15 pm

Flex Grid
The Flex Grid introduces a new way for creating flexible layouts based on CSS Grid Layout (https://www.w3schools.com/css/css_grid.asp).
The CSS grid layout allows web developers to create complex responsive web layouts more easily and consistently across browsers.
'CSS Grid Layout' is a two-dimensional grid system that is native to CSS. It does not rely on floats or other hacks.

The idea behind the Flex Grid is to divide a web page into columns and rows. The columns and rows have named areas where you can drag & drop object in. The layout can be different in breakpoints. Each grid area supports its own padding, (flexbox) alignment, border and background styling.

Image

The Flex Grid object has a grid editor so you can visually define the layout (grid areas) and behavior of the grid.

Image

The size for each column/row can be set in pixels, percentages or the ‘fr’ unit.

‘fr’ stands for ‘fraction of available space’. You can think of this as percentages for available space after you've taken off fixed-sized and content-based columns/rows. This allows you to create layout that previously were not possible with standard HTML/CSS!

Google Fonts Manager

Post by Pablo » Fri Apr 20, 2018 5:18 pm

Google Fonts Manager
Adding Google Fonts to your website has never been easier. Google Fonts no longer have to be manually downloaded/installed from the Google website, the Google Font Manager takes care of this!
Fonts that are installed via the Font Manager will be added to the ‘web safe' fonts list and the necessary CSS code will be generated automatically when you preview or publish the website.
Font can have different variants, like light, medium, bold, regular etc. The available variants can be enabled per font.

Cards

Post by Pablo » Fri Apr 20, 2018 5:20 pm

Cards
A Card is a lightweight, flexible content container. It includes options for headers and footers, a wide variety of content, styling, and powerful display options. The Card object was inspired by Bootstrap's v4 Card component.

Image

Popover
Cards can also be used as Popovers, this basically uses the Card as an advanced tooltip/pop-up box that appears when the user clicks or hovers on an element. Popovers can be placed at the top, right, bottom of left of the container object and can be activated via click, hover or focus.

Twitter Cards

Post by Pablo » Fri Apr 20, 2018 5:28 pm

Twitter Cards
With Twitter Cards, you can attach rich photos, videos and media experiences to Tweets, helping to drive traffic to your website. If you add Twitter Card meta tags to your webpage, users who Tweet links to your content will have a “Card” added to the Tweet that’s visible to their followers. This is very similar to sharing a link on Facebook which automatically displays a preview with title, summary, and thumbnail of your page content when using Open Graph Meta Tags.

More information:
https://developer.twitter.com/en/docs/t ... outs-cards

The following Cards types are supported:
• Summary
• Summary with large image
• Player

Twitter specific meta tags can be configured in the Meta Tags section of the Page Properties.

Tab Menu
Added responsive mode. When the viewport gets smaller than the specified breakpoint value, the Tab Menu will switch to stacked (vertical) mode so it can also be used on smaller screens.

Image

Added responsive mode. This works in combination with Layout->Type->Responsive. When the viewport gets smaller than the specified breakpoint value, the Text Menu will switch from horizontal to vertical.

Image

Border styles of the main menu now support for individual sides.

Image


Panel Menu
Added responsive mode. When the viewport gets smaller than the specified breakpoint value, the Panel Menu will switch to full screen mode (with close button).

Master Page

Post by Pablo » Sun Apr 22, 2018 1:06 pm

Master Page

Added a new (easier) way to implement master pages. In addition to Master Frame you can now also use another page as background template. This does not require a content place holder.
Basically, the master page will be used as 'background' of the content page and you place all other objects on top of this. If the master page includes a footer then it will automatically be moved based on the content.

Image


Demo of the master page:
