During a few last months we slowed down our work on MotoPress Visual Builder to focus on our new products – Responsive Slider for WordPress and MotoPress addons. But we haven’t stop it at all and now want to show you new improvements which were added to the Content Editor plugin in the updated version 1.6.1.
So what can you use in our updated WordPress drag and drop editor to edit your pages and posts visually? There are really many new features which were added to this release, we’ll stop on the most significant only:
Highly Customizable Service Box Widget
When we state that it’s a highly customizable we mean really very multi-functional service box tool.
After adding the widget to the stage, in the Service box settings you can:
- decide whether to make your content centered or align it to the right side
- choose the media type of the service box by setting the font icon, image icon or wide image
- set the size of the icon, its color, effect and background settings which could be without changes, square, rounded or circle.
- write the title and assign its style: from H1 till H6. Note: this parameter is very important for SEO
- fill the service box with content or leave only an icon and a button
- decide whether to display the button or not
- select button text, link, alignment and even color
You can see all manipulations with icons, text an buttons on the examples below where we’ve adjusted each service box as we prefer.
The example below features full width image which can be also used in the service box widget.
Updated Post Grid Widget
In the previous versions of MotoPress page builder it’ll be possible to display only recent posts and custom post types, now by using the Post Grid widget you are able to display any kind of posts: blog post, forum, topic, reply, documentation and download. We are sure, you’ll appreciate a new feature to show posts with the Custom Query option as you are allowed to choose the number of columns, style of the post, image size and title style. It’s also possible to show the date and comments of the post or vice versa hide them. If you need you can add ‘Read more’ text or ‘Load more’ button, so users do not miss any important information.
The example of the Post Grid widget below shows the title, short description of the article, read more and load more text buttons.
Improved Button widget
Button is a really significant element in each post or page. In most cases it plays a ‘call to action’ role and should be very noticeable. Considering this fact we’ve added the ability to set an icon for the Button and the opportunity to stretch it to the full width of the page.
- added the ability to set Instagram link in Social Buttons widget
- added the opportunity to use shortcodes in Members Content widget
- added the possibility to show caption of the image in Image widget
- added the ability to add addons settings in the MotoPress settings section
- made minor bug fixes and improvements
We’ve worked hard to bring all these new features to you and hope you are going to enjoy and use them. We are looking forward to see your feedback in comments.
