Hello.

I started testing June 2018 Update of Nicepage and have some questions from first steps.

Logo

Logo Control not support SVG? Nicepage not ready for high dpi? :)
How can I set max-width: 100%; and height: auto; for logo?

Colors

There is Theme color pallete and I can customize it with own hex code. But if I need specific color for one heading on page - how can I set hex code to this heading text without modification of Theme colors?

Preview

How can I preview result in browser to test in some browsers and inspect elements? Or it's possible only after export?

Units and position

Can I set for section 100% or 100vh?
Can I set relative position for some controls? Or all of elements in Nicepage based on absolute position?

Text editing

How can I use paragraphs? In some case only double enter can create "paragraph" but in some cases only single enter will create "paragraph". But in both cases this is not paragraph (p), just break (br) - right? Nicepage not support paragraphs?

Look on screenshot - what is in Nicepage editor and what is in preview: https://s22.postimg.cc/v8539qkgh/np-text-editing.png - big space after first text line in preview, but all ok in editor.

UPD 1. When I back to editing my text - in Nicepage editor now I see this big space between paragraphs, but now I can edit only first line of text. I try to click on text below and it not editable (no Text tab, only Contaner).

Very strange and unpredictable behavior when formatting the text. Impossible to work.

UPD 2. I tested again and recorded two videos (I merge them in one): https://streamable.com/izw3p

Images (Gallery)

I need gallery with many own photos. So I put new Section in Nicepage and select Gallery mode. The question is: how on this step I can upload own 30 photos? Or it's possible to change images only after I put section? One by one 30 images manualy? If I have 100 images - only manualy I need to click on each image in Gallery and replace it by my own?

BTW how can I create gallery with 30+ images without duplication of section with 3x6 grid? For 100 images I need 6 sections? Or somewhere I can add more rows in grid?

Multilanguage support

Many of websites in Europe have two or more languages. Is Nicepage ready for multilanguage? How can I create multilanguage website in Desktop app? How can I add language switcher control for Joomla?

Unuseful controls

Some controls just to fill an empty space - very limited.

  • Google Maps: impossible to create color scheme or add own marker icon
  • Video: impossible to create fullscreen bacground video (black line will be at sides)
  • Form: impossible to add custom fields

And very limited quantity of controls.
Missed: accordion, popup, flip box, table, tabs, progress bar etc.

Errors and stop working

Sometimes Nicepage just stop working: https://streamable.com/q08ak

enter image description here

When I try to refresh Nicepage (F5) I get a JS error.

enter image description here

And many small bugs everywhere... for example: if I click on Wide option in Section tab - 'check' flag will not be active (https://streamable.com/oec3d). Very hard to move controls between the Sections.. sometime it's almost impossible to drag control from one section to another, big lags.

...

I stop testing on this stage. Come on guys, it's impossible to create or edit something custom in Nicepage. It's not Beta, it's like Alpha. All looks good (I mean UI) and awesome video tutorial but problems with UX and simple bugs.

Maybe you need to create free open beta test? Is there some one who want to pay for subscription to test beta (that like alpha) product? Or Nicepage in current condition is ready for production websites? :)

...

And... it's strange to talk about it... but Themler looks more simple for creating and editing. It is certainly subjective, I understand that Nicepage is new for me so need more time to learn it, nevertheless Nicepage with last update bring new options and it's more deeper now. On the other hand there are still many things missing. Strange feeling. I expected more and more simple.

I'm on your side, just want to help create stable Nicepage with one reason: in order to developers come back to more simple and powerful Themler.

Hello,

Thank you for your feedback.

Logo SVG

We will consider this possibility. The current Logo control has all necessary max-width and max-height parameters. More over, they can be customized in theme options.

Custom Color

We are working at this. It will be included into the next update.

Preview

Preview in different browser will be included into one of the next updates.

Units and position

All positioning is set in px and %. % appear only in special cases, when an element is put outside the sheet (in dynamic section fields).
In 95% cases relative and margins are used. 5% can be switched to an absolute for some elements, for example, a video fully stretched by the section or a turned line.
That is why it is not needed to manage position type and units. Nicepage will do it for you.

As for the section height, there is no point in setting 100% (relating what are these 100% by height?). Most popular values are in the height magnet: 100vh and 50vw. They can be resized and the tooltips will appear.

Text editing

At the moment Nicepage is more focused on design. And as in other similar programs like Sketch and Adobe XD for adding a new paragraph one more Text control should be added. And Enter will set namely line break, i.e.
. We consider the possibility to add a special Reach text control or improve the existing one, so that there is a possibility to add paragraphs by Enter and set styles like h1, h2,.. for the selected line.
What happens on the video is an issue to be fixed.

Gallery

There is such control in our backlog.

Multilanguage support

HTML export doesn't support it. Themes in CMS's are ready for this. The control is in the backlog.

Unuseful controls

ОК, we see what tou mean. We can work at this, but most probably not in the first version.

Once again thank you for your feedback and for reporting issues, we are working at fixing them.

Sincerely,
Nicepage Team
