Positioning Elements in Gridbox

Joomla website builder Gridbox 2.12.5 comes with new feature Positioning. This means that the grid no longer limits the implementation of your design ideas. Want to move the plugin around the page? Or maybe you want to move it a little to the left? Now it's easier than you think! Move page elements without any margin settings.

Position Default

The new feature Positioning comes with three types of position: Default, Absolute, Fixed. Initially, all plugins have a default position where, as before, you need to use the margin and padding settings to move elements.

Positioning you'll find in the tab Layout in the settings of any plugin. To change the position type, open the plugin settings, go to the tab Layout and select the element position you need.

Position Absolute

Position Absolute is a brand new Gridbox website-building experience that will add freshness to your designs. With the new option, you're free to implement your most unusual ideas. All you need to do is change the settings and put the element anywhere on the page. Position Absolute will not only save time but also create an enjoyable Gridbox Editor experience.

We would like to pay special attention to the process of moving elements. Position Absolute in Gridbox is a heaven of delight because it's done with a simple drag and drop, smoothly, and most importantly without freezing. Just give it a try, and be sure that the absolute positioning of elements will not leave you indifferent!

Position Fixed

By setting a fixed position, you can place a plugin anywhere on the page, just like with the Absolute Position. The only difference is that you can freeze the element when scrolling the page. Use the fixed plugin position to pin an important element to the visible area of the screen. For example, it could be a call-to-action button, a live chat, or absolutely any other element. So don't be afraid to experiment!

Z-Index. Set Layer Order

What to do in a situation where elements intersect and overlap? The solution is very simple: use the option Z-Index. Control the position of an element in the stacking order by setting the Z-Index. You can set the Z-Index in the plugin settings in the tab Layout.
