Multiple Units

CSS units determine the measurement of an element along with specific background field. These units include pixel(px), percentage(%), viewport height(vh) etc that defines the measurement of screen.

Quix 2.0 was released with 2 units only. But now it has more units in different elements. These elements will help you to fix the area of an element. You can choose the measuring unit and set the element just the way you want.

Quix 2.0 RC Is Here - Joomla Visual Builder Got Huge New Features and Improvements

quix2-rc

Day to day we are improving Quix page builder, making it better. Better in structure and performance. Now we are ready to launch our Release Candidate of QUIX.

It is far much better than the first version of Quix Joomla page builder, as we brought some significant changes. Not only the outlook is changed, but also the inner section is much improvised and sorted.

During Alpha and Beta release, a few issues appeared which are now solved. Our experienced developers are working day & night to improve it more and take it to the next level to reduce your workload, and the result of your hard work for building a site seem flawless.

Without delaying further, let's check out the improvements.

New Installer

Everything starts with an installations process. We took our time to give you a good installer and tried to make the first impression look good. We have enhanced the installer of Quix. It is now easier and more reliable than ever.

We have given rollback support to Quix installer so that after installing new version if your site breaks or you face any kind of trouble, you will be able to rollback to the previous version. Nothing will be lost, and you will not face any kinds of trouble. 

The installation process is kept simple so you can easily install Quix. Everything needed to set up will be done automatically. You just chill for a moment while Quix installs. We have added a requirement checklist, if it matches with your system the installation process will move further.

If your system doesn't matches the minimum requirement consider altering the system settings. Still, if you find any trouble, just let us know. Our support team will be right next to you in a minute.

[New] Icon Picker and SVG Editor

Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) is an XML based vector image format for two-dimensional graphics with support for interactivity and animation. SVG images are composed of fixed set of shapes.

The main benefit of SVG is, you can make it smaller or bigger any size you want and you can add any color you want. In one sentence you can customize the SVG as you want which is only just a dream for general images.

With the new version of Quix, you will be able to upload any images and SVG images to the media manager. But if you like you can also use SVG icons which comes by default with Quix.

We want our client to have the best of Quix page builder. So we added the SVG icons with the new Quix to make it look more flawless. In this version, we are providing you 1000+ awesome SVG icons which are located locally in media manager, and we are going to increase that number as we release an update.

You can upload your own svg files update it on the fly. Whenever you select an SVG file you will see 2 new additional controls right after the media picker. You can resize the SVG and give it to any color you want. Isn't it awesome ? 

[New] Copy/Paste Section, Row & Element

Copy-paste are the two most older keywords on the internet. The copy command creates a duplicate of the original text/image and stores in a temporary storage tool called clipboard. Later the data in the clipboard is inserted in the position where the paste command is issued.

Earlier in the previous version of Quix, there was cloning option. It was great, but it would create a little bit trouble if the page length is very long. You had to drag the item entire way to the very end.

To reduce your trouble, we've upgraded the copy-paste techniques. Now you can command copy-paste your elements, row, and even section.

When you want to copy a section, just click on the copy icon of that item and after finding a suitable place, click the paste icon. There is no more trouble of dragging all the way down. You can create the duplication of them and reuse. But if you like to drag and make clone, don't worry we have kept this option for you.

[Improved] Drag & Drop Interface

Quix is the ultimate Joomla drag and drop page builder. It was built that way. But now, to make the drag and drop option more smooth and clear, we have brought a slight change. We've upgraded it a bit.

Now while dragging a column or row or even a section, an icon will appear, and once you drop the icon in the destination, content will be moved. You don't have to get confused if your content is big enough to move. Just click the drag icon situated in the mini-toolbox and drop it wherever you want.

Huge Core Improvements Makes Quix More Fast

Quix was made fast. But in our everyday routine, fast is turning a boring word. Nowadays, everyone loves supersonic speed. The circling of buffering has turned annoying for everyone. Now everyone loves the instant result.

So, we made some core improvements and made Quix super fast. Now all the changes you bring to your site will appear without any delay & buffering. Now the changes will appear instantly. Don't believe us? In the stable release, you'll get the proof.

[New] Page Settings

Page setting or document setting is the parameters defined by the users that help to determine how the page will appear. To be specific, you can control some basic and useful settings of an entire page.

To find the page settings element all you have to do is, click the 'settings' written button situated in the toolbar. Inside the page settings, you'll find some additional settings like status, language, color preset, CSS, etc to set the basics of a page. 

[New] Link Quix Page to Menu From Visual Builder

Linking a page is not tough anymore in Joomla page builder. Now you can add a new page to your menu bar with more flexibility and trouble-free.

Right after creating a page and saving it, you can set it to your menu bar of the site. In the center of the top toolbar, you'll find the setting options. Click it, and it will offer you four more options. From there select 'Link Page To Menu'. A popup box will appear with some more additional settings. Just set the name and position and other thing and click the 'save' button. And you're done here. 

[New] Customizable Section/Row Height & Flex

Quix comes with some default settings. Like section height, background, padding, etc. But now, you can change most of the default settings. One of them is the height of the section.

You do not need to calculate margin-padding for your section anymore, as you can directly customize it. Just go to the section setting and customize according to your will.

You have two options, - fit to screen and custom height.

Fit to screen will automatically detect the size of your screen. With one click on it, section height will be adapted perfectly according to your display size.

And if you need to customize the section height in our own way, just select custom height. In this option, you get to increase the value of section height by the slider. You might have gotten used by pixels, so we haven't forgotten it. As you modify section height with the slider, you will be able to see its pixel value as well.

After modifying the section height, you can set the alignment of column position directly to top bottom or center as you wish. You do not need to set it by pixels; you will be able to set it with just one click.

You can also increase of decrease custom height for row and column also.

As you increase or decrease the height, it will be instantly updating in real time. You don't have to go for a preview button. It's up to you now, how you want to change the height of the section and give a new, different look.

[New] Disable Mode

One of your very important features is "Disable Mode". You can disable any section, any column, any element at any time you want. You might be thinking "what is the necessity?"

Consider you are developing a section on you live site, and you are just in between completing it. Would you like to show the incomplete section to your viewer? Definitely not.

With the help of disabled mode, you will be able to hide the incomplete section until its completed.

You can also disable any section or element, device wise. Disabled section or element will not be visible for the selected device until you enable it. A disabled unit will not be able to customize until you enable it. So make sure you enable it before editing. 

[New] Custom CSS For Every Element (PRO)

With all the ready-made options, we've also kept an option for custom CSS. Now, why is that? In case, if you want to include any different options other than ours, you can do it.

Custom CSS allows you to add raw code in any field you want and it won't conflict with other elements. You can your own style to it give your site a new look. Every developer has their own taste, so you can decorate your site with your own taste.

Conclusion

It's never-ending for Quix page builder as we are improving it every day and in every possible way making it the best free Joomla page builder. With the final stable release, we'll unleash all the hidden tracks and solve the unsolved mysteries cause 'the good one comes at the end'.

Stay connected and let us know how you wish to see this Joomla, page builder. We always look forward to your suggestions and advice.

Inside Quix - Flexible Layout System Powered By Bootstrap 4

Blog-Cove_20180406-094542_1

Quix Joomla Page Builder is much more upgraded and sorted than it was ever before. Cause now Bootstrap 4 has been included in Quix making Quix page builder unstoppable.

Today I'll talk about the Layout System of Quix. Earlier, we used Bootstrap 3 for layout system. It consists the basics of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. The preprocessor of Bootstrap 3 is LESS which is written in JavaScript. The popularity of LESS among developers is 13.4%. It uses 4 grid tiers and they are xs(phones), sm(tablets), md(desktops) and lg(larger desktops). And many more things.

You might have got a question, "What's the need of moving to Bootstrap 4?" Right?

Why lack behind when you can work with latest features of Bootstrap. Latest version of Bootstrap is Bootstrap 4. It has new components, more flexibility, and more responsiveness. It supports the latest, stable release of all major browsers and platform except Internet Explorer 9.

Bootstrap 4 offers many new flexible features and it appeared to be the better than the best. So, not delaying further we used Bootstrap 4 for Quix 2.0 page builder.

Reason behind migration to BS4

As you know, bootstrap is the world's most popular framework for building responsive, mobile-first sites, and applications. It has high quality HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to make any project easier than ever.

Bootstrap includes a powerful mobile-first flexbox grid system for building layouts of all shapes and sizes. It is based on a 12 column layout and has 5 tiers i.e. xs (extra small), sm (small), md (medium), lg (large) & xl (extra large) breakpoints. Now, these breakpoints are fixed as the pixels are specified. These breakpoints make sure not to break the websites as the changes appear in different devices. Now you don't have to worry about fitting to the screen. It will adjust by default.

Moreover, we choose Bootstrap 4 over Bootstrap 3 for these reasons:

  1. Popularity
  2. Flexibility
  3. Responsiveness

Let's get into a little bit deep. Shall we?

1) Popularity

Bootstrap 4 got its popularity just after arrival. A Bootstrap team made a survey in Tweeter about Bootstrap 4 and they got a very high response. Most of the developers loved it because of its exclusive features.

Around 3.5% of the entire internet uses Bootstrap. Because of its flexbox, form control, appearance & look, mobile-first, and most importantly, the migration from BS3 to BS4 is really very simple.

2) Flexibility

Bootstrap 4 is way more flexible than ever.

The Grid System consists of 3 main parts. Container, Row, and Columns. A fixed container is set by default. Inside the container, rows are set and all you need to do is set the column. And moreover, you can change the size of columns just the way you want.

3) Responsiveness

When it comes to BS4 nothing can beat its responsiveness.

The Grid system consists of 5 grid tiers. The 12 column layout is developed with percentage which makes the drag and drop more easy and smooth. The 12 columns are not a must. You can use 2,3,4,6, and max 12. You can set different column numbers for different devices and make the websites more flexible in display screen of any device. It can adjust from extra small to extra large device screens.

Now that's what I call a revolution…

In the meantime we'll work on with our next release. Together we'll make Quix 2.0 the best Joomla Page Builder one's ever known.

Array of Pre-Made Column

Quix Layout system is crafted with the array of Pre-Made column and now it is more easier, more flexible and much more powerful than before.
Right after entering in the world of Quix you'll find the Add New Section Button. Just click it and you'll find 11 Predefined layouts which are designed just for your website. Use the layout which suits perfectly with your need.

Add Column On-The-Fly

Once you've selected the layouts and while working on them, you feel like you need to include one more column, at that moment you have to go through all over the working process again.
Well, now you don't have to do it. Right on the top-left of the column you'll find an Add Column button. Just click it and a brand new column will appear just right next to the selected column.

Duplicate Column

A creative mind creates a masterpiece once. And if you wanna make another one similar to it, you've gotta go through the hard works all over again. Why repeat the troubles when you can do it by clicking a button.
Just click on the Duplicate Button situated in the top-left mini toolbox of the designed column. The clone of the column is ready. Now all you need to do is, just change the contents.

Column Resizing

​Column Resizing means to resize the the default column layout. Quix page builder gives you the ultimate power to resize the column to your desire. It was never so much easier as now. The new version of Quix offers pixel perfect layouts and now you can resize them easily and smoothly.

The columns are built on percentages. Just drag the side of your column and expand or shrink it just the way you want and we promise, it won't break the row. Don't believe us? Why not try by yourself and test it.

Column Setting

​Quix 2.0 has transformed completely as the settings are much more easy and flexible. After the section selection and column selection, you'll be able to edit the column settings.

Nested Columns

Quix Joomla page builder makes easy to create beautiful responsive page layouts with the fast drag-&-drop gesture.

But most people get stuck while creating complex layouts. To be more precise, we can say nested layouts. Like- if you want to create multiple rows of different numbers of columns, but all within the same section, you can do it. This new feature will allow you to create new columns inside of an existing column. You can build the websites both simple and complex at the same time and of course all in the same section.

Responsive Columns At Its Best

Controlling the column layouts for responsive different size screen was not so much easy and promising. Some obscure settings would make it more hard to find and set, still not great.
But not with Quix 2.0 Joomla Page Builder. We've redesigned the responsive function to a new extent. Now Quix 2.0 will be responsive to 5 different types of screen as we've extended it to Bootstrap 4 which supports 5 tiers: xs (extra small screen), Sm (small screen), Md (medium screen), lg (large screen) and XL (extra large screen).

Right after the selection of column, red circle naming 'Add Elements' will appear which will allow you to select the elements from the list 'Element List'. These elements are sorted and you can modify each element in details. These elements are:

The column element is present to help you to create a new column inside the existing column. Which means you can give your website a creative look with various numbers of columns in one section.

Button Element

A form cannot be submitted without a button. It not only links to other sites but also enables to store the data in database. So, we customized the button settings with ready-made buttons with editable functions. You can change the style, font, size, shape etc as it comes with 3 different settings- General, Styles and Advanced.

General setting has all the primary settings including types, outline styles etc. Style setting offers different types of styling like- typography, background, text color, border & spacing. And Advanced setting has background, element style etc

Heading Element

Headings always attract the viewers. If the header is not attractive then you might have less than average traffic in your site.

Quix 2.0 is designed holding each and every element in details. The heading element has all the functions to make a header bold and attractive. It has styling, linking, color, typography, element style, background etc. Make the full use of it and let us know.

Image Element

Image is a necessary element for any website. It is proven that images works better than texts. Your explanation directly hits viewers mind faster with images rather than texts.

With quix you can insert an image directly or generate it form any external link, that's totally up to you. Besides we know everyone like it a bit unique, so we have provided elegant customization's along it. Hope you like to use our new element.

Text Element

Text element is very much important. It helps to get more traffic via SEO. Text helps to describe anything in details. If the text is not appropriate and attractive then it does not increase viewers interest.

We know how much text element is important for you so we tried our best to make it better. Our text element comes with advanced typography, so that you can customize text in your way.

Cache System Updated

"Faster and quick response" is the first expectation a user expects from a website. And a site can be made blazing fast by improving the cache system. Cache shows the web pages without pulling them from database every time a user asks for them.

Quix Joomla page builder is 3X, faster as we updated the cache system. Now the buffering won't bother you and keep you waiting as the pages will load in seconds.

An Interview With Joe Sonne Founder & CEO of JoeJoomla.com

blog_cover

Joe Sonne living in Canada , is one of the most popular person who joined Joomla! from its initial position when Joomla was a project named Mambo. He got involved with Joomla in 2005. And from there, his journey with Joomla started. From a user to volunteer to board member to fundraiser, he has done a lot for Joomla from behind the scenes. He is the owner of JoeJoomla and Joe Sonne Marketing.

Moreover, he was the former Secretary of Open Source Matters (OSM) and currently he serves the project as the Capital Committee Chairperson and also a team member of the Marketing Member Group. He's a trainer, speaker, and writer about all the things related to Joomla.

Luckily, we got a chance to know him more closely and he shared his Joomla journey with us. We are going to share his journey and some of his untold story too.

Tell us something about yourself

"I studied commercial art and advertising in school. I spent some time in the advertising department of a large national mass merchandiser but not as an artist. I went to the production side of the things and really loved being the guy that could communicate well with the art directors and production suppliers. 

My next big move was to sales. I worked for one of the largest graphic art companies in Canada. I was one of the first salesman in Canada specializing in digital marketing.

After this period I transitioned to management and was the Director of Communications for a national non profit organization. This is when I discovered Joomla and became involved in the project. I went full time with my own Joomla based business in 2009. 

I've been privileged to serve on the board of Joomla(Open Source Matters) and today I'm still a volunteer with the project serving as a Team Leader."


Products and services of your company

JoeJoomla produces great and award winning websites. They provide website content management solutions, web hosting, Joomla training services etc.

In Joe's word, "My digital brand is JoeJoomla. We specialize in Joomla"

What do you think about the future of Joomla?

"Joomla is a leader in open source content management website systems(CMS). Joomla is the first open source CMS to adopt php7. This tells you a lot about the project. It's been the best and will stay so because of forward thinking. 

There's opportunities for bright and innovative developers to make a name for themselves in this project since anyone can volunteer their time and skills to make Joomla better."

How our product and services was helpful to you

"I use a ThemeXpert template and Quix Pro for my client project site. The people at ThemeXpert are friendly and willing to jump in and help when needed. I Like That! "

If you  recommend ThemeXpert to others what you'll say ?

"ThemeXpert will help you to create great looking websites that work well"

Your experience with Quix

"Quix is fun to use. To improve Quix is to simply keep it working well with Joomla and continue to add things that today's modern websites need and want."
