Over 1,000,000 User Blocks

Form

Voting Results for Form Submit

We have conducted the voting to identify what is the most appropriate to implement the Form Submit.

Should Nicepage team create own service to store Form Submits on nicepage.com?

Link to Input Field Style

We have added a link to go to the Input Style Settings in the Property Panel.

New Colors in User Interface

During the usability tests, some designers stated that the User Interface of Nicepage looked a bit outdated. The general recommendation was to try dark and add more contrast. Now the Top Bar is dark, and we have removed the extra borders.

Back-To-Top

We have changed the default style of the Back-To-Top control. Now the style has the Fill with transparency. The Back-To-Top is also available in the Add List.

Elements in Blocks

Many users look for Elements in the Blocks. Therefore, to help them, we have added the row of Elements into the Blocks Tab.

Menu

Link Settings in the Menu Dialog

We have simplified the Address edition in the Link Settings in the Menu Dialog.

Separate Fill and Border for Menu States

Now you can specify the Fill and Border separately for the Menu States. For example, you can have the Fill for the Default State, and not have it on Hover.

Button

Separate Fill and Border for Button States

Similarly to the Menu, you can specify the Fill and Border separately for the Button States.

Grid

Add Grid Quick Help

New users think of Nicepage's Grids as gridlines. To explain the concept, we have added the Quick Help with the illustration into the Grid list.

One Column in Grids

Many users try to create a Block Layout with one cell using the Grid. We have added the One Cell Style into the Grids list.

Icon

New Filters in Icon Dialog

We have added three new filters, which include Icon Only, Icon with Background, and Icon with Shape into the Icon Dialog. It should help to filter and find Icons faster.

Add Icon With Background or Border

You can add an Icon with the Background or Border in the Add Element - Shape List.

Shape Fill in Icon Toolbar

We have added the Icon Shape Fill into the Icon Toolbar.

Editor

Container Display

If you move an Element in the Block, you can see Containers for a better structure view.

Drop Positions

If you change the Element order in the Container or Block, you can see the preset positions for dropping.

Text Uppercase in Toolbar and Property Panel

Best Practices

Move Menu into First Block

Ofter users try to pull the Menu into the First Block after the Header, and we recommend to use the Overlap Next Block option instead.

Expanding Image in Block

Many uses pull the image markers to expand the image. However, they do not snap to the block edges correctly. Therefore, we recommend using the Expand to Background option.

Edit Menu in CMS

In WordPress or Joomla, you can use the Menu Editor ONLY to stylize the Menu. Please edit your Menu Items in the Appearance -> Menu in WordPress, and the Menus in Joomla.
