Gridbox 1.0.3 Has Arrived. Grinding for Perfection!

Hello everybody. Today we have a new blog post, and we want to talk about the new version of our Joomla Page Builder - Gridbox.

Many of you have noticed that we aren't striving for the amounts of options and plugins. The quality and convenience of the work are more important for us. That isn't to say that we're not planning to add something new. We strive to ensure that every detail of the Gridbox Page Builder was perfect.

That's why, the new version of Gridbox generally includes a service pack, that focused on upgrading the current functionality.

So, let's consider in some detail what we have prepared for you. Here we go!...

Inline Text Editor

Probably, you think what is new can be in Text plugin?! So as to bring to perfection, we have to move on.

Let's remember how it was before. You add a text plugin in the column, click the edit icon, and the modal window opens, in the dialog box you edit your text.

Such manner of editing the content of website can't give you a possibility to see the actual text, because the modal window overlap the page.

With upgraded Text plugin, you can edit your content in real time, without modal window, it's unbelievably cool…

Sure enough, you can edit not only the actual text, but you can also edit their style. With text highlighting, the format toolbar appears and permits to add a link, italic type etc.

Imagine the situation when you have downloaded the slides in a slideshow, added titles, descriptions, icons and the immense desire to change some slides are coming to you, certain problem will turn on the way. You can change the picture without deleting the slide, then you have to fill in all over again.
