If you read our previous blog post about Gridbox "The Gridbox is coming soon", you should know, the Gridbox is a component that combines the Page Builder and Joomla Template Framework.

Today we're going to talk about Gridbox Page Builder.The process of creation the page by using Gridbox website builder woulds be in two simple steps:

  • Creating a page layout;
  • Filling the layout.

We tried very hard to make page creation as simple as possible.

Build a Flexible Page Layouts.

If you have experience with our Forms component, hold that you have already created a page layout in Gridbox.

A page layout of Gridbox created by sections which in turn contains rows and columns. The section can contain unlimited number of rows.

Gridox Page Builder - Section Structure

For adding a new section you have just click the button "New Section". In dialog box you can choose 10 variations of sections with different number of columns. We selected the most commonly used layouts in web design, making Gridbox at most flexible.
Also by drag and drop, you can change the order of sections and rows inside the section.

Every object of the page layout: section, row, column has a lot of options, that allows you to customize the page layout including your needs. For example, you can easily set the background picture or video, add animation, set margins etc.

All options of Gridbox are arranged in the editor very exactly and consequently. In the process of Gridbox creation we don't forget for a moment about slogan of our company "It's easier than ever".

The most detailed review of options for sections, rows and column, you can read in the Gridbox documentation over which we are working now.

Gridbox Page Plugins.

After that you have created your page layout, added background images, animations, margins, etc. you need to fill the page layout of the content. To add page plugins you have click the icon "Plus" on the column.

At this moment Gridbox includes six plugins:

  • Text;
  • Button;
  • Image;
  • Joomla Module;
  • Forms;
  • Gallery.

Each of the plugin have especial options, most detailed description of the plugin options will be able in the documentation.

In the future we’ll upgrade the list of plugins, to make Gridbox more universal and ready to meet any challenges.
