Structuring Gridbox Apps

Structuring Content Apps in Joomla Website Builder Gridbox

Today we want to add even more Christmas mood to the Balbooa Community. Therefore we decided to please you with another small but very cool and useful update this year - apps organization improvements. Improvements that will allow you not only to manage your Gridbox Apps in the admin panel but also to structure them. Scroll down for details!


Improvements in Structuring Gridbox Apps


Keeping your workplace tidy is part of your success. Any project needs a plan and a clear structure. The orderliness helps you save time and focus on work rather than finding tools. Joomla website builder Gridbox has a cool dashboard, but its functionality is not enough to create a large project. Therefore, we have developed improvements that will allow you to arrange installed apps and create a clean and understandable structure yourself. So let's see how it works!


Creating and Managing Content Apps


Especially for large projects, we have developed groups that will allow you to quickly organize your apps.


Organize Your Apps in Groups


Group creation is a very simple process that doesn't require many clicks. First, add a few apps. By dragging one of the apps to another, you will get an app group, that's all.

Change Group Title


Want to rename your group? It's even easier than creating it. To do this, just click on the group name and start typing a new title.

Rearrange Groups and Apps


Place frequently used groups at the beginning of the dashboard to quickly navigate to the app what you need. To sort the groups in the order you need, click on the group and drag it to the desired place on the panel.

How about reordering apps within a group? And this is also possible. Just drag your app to the desired position within the group.

But what if the group contains too many apps? How, then, can you sort apps within a group? We have foreseen this too. Use the group window by clicking the icon View. Then, in the opened window, change the app order.

Move Apps Out From Groups


Change your mind? Or maybe you added the wrong app to the group? Don't worry! Just open the group window by clicking on the icon View. Then pull the app out of the group and drop it.

Gridbox Tools


We've divided the Gridbox tools from the content apps and moved them down the Apps dashboard. Tools are not duplicated, renamed or dragged. There is absolutely no need, so all the tools have moved down, giving more space to content apps and making them easier to find visually.

One more thing, by sorting groups and apps in the Apps dashboard, you're also adjusting the display of groups and apps in the left sidebar. Cool, isn't it? Oh, this is an excellent opportunity to structure your left sidebar and organize the whole mess. Also, you can navigate to any content app without additional clicks using the dropdown menu.


Let's get into the New Year 2022 with order and structured apps in the Gridbox. Enjoy! The next update awaits you already in the new year.
