Introducing Quix ACL - Control Access in Every Level of Quix

quix_access_control Quix2_quixacl

Our mission is to provide you a full-fledged Joomla page builder that will help you to develop your site in a faster and easier way. Therefore we are implementing new technologies and coming up with new features like QuixOptimize and Quix Rank. Today we are introducing ACL, one of the biggest feature that takes your site access control to the next level.

We always pay heed to our clients and due to the request of one of our client, we brought ACL feature in Quix 2.4.3.

This is a very unique and one of the wanted features that we need in regular life, therefore we implemented it in Quix 2.4.3. From the beginning, we tried to build Quix 2 unique and fulfill all your needs. You will not find features like, ACL, Optimize, and Rank anywhere else except Quix 2.

Let's dig out deep.

What's New in Quix 2.4.3?

ACL

Joomla ACL is also known as 'Joomla Access Control Lists' and it is one of the most powerful & popular features of Joomla. It mainly controls two things - 1. What a user can see on your website, 2. What a user can do on your website. You can place individual users into user groups, which are assigned with access control levels and assigned permissions. 

You can create tiered levels of access and control every user.

Why Do You Need ACL in Quix?

At this point, your curious mind might want to know, ACL is already available in Joomla by default then why I need it in Quix 2? You know the power of ACL and how it lets you control your user groups. Now you can control the user groups for specific sections, pages, rows, columns, and elements. Only specific people will be able to access or see the specified item.
More specifically Quix ACL allows you to-

1. To Show Specific Content to Specific People

Guess you have a big shop with lots of registered customers and want to give a special discount to your registered users. How do you do it?
Well, you can do it with Quix ACL very easily without any hassle. Just create the User Group that you want to show a special discount section from Joomla> Users> Groups. For example, I have created a user group named 'Gold'.

After creating a group set its viewing access levels. Set the title of access level and select, which group of users can access the data of 'Gold' users group. I have selected Registered, Gold, Superusers and administrator. So now only these groups of people will be able to access the data of Gold users group. In this way create your own user group and viewing access level on your own terms.

 Now goto Quix and open your preferred page. Select the section you want to apply ACL and go to Section Settings > Advanced. Click on Acl and select the specified user group. You are done, now only that group will see that specific section.

2. To Give Access to Specific People for a Specific Content 

When you specify user groups in a section with Quix ACL, only that specified groups of users will be able to see and access that section. For others, that specified section doesn't even exist. In this way, you can control users easily.

That's all for acl. Now let's check other new changes that comes with Quix 2.4.3.

GIF and MOV Support Added to Media Manager 

Moving images always works better than still images. You might be thinking of videos, but videos take a lot of space. Therefore we have brought gif support to Quix Media manager. Now you will be able to use gif images to your site directly.

Along with gif, we have also provided support for .mov video files. Mov video files are very much popular for its lossless compressed quality. You will be able to use Mov videos directly to your site without any sort of trouble.

Video Pro 

With Quix 2.4.3 we have come with Video Pro element. With this element, you have more control over your video and users. Video pro element gives you different options by which you can enhance the video watching experience of your user. 


There are four new options in the video pro element - Controls, AutoPlay, Mute, and Loop. If you want your users to only watch the videos without any control, turn the control off and there will control option in your video for users. 

Similarly, if you want to play the video automatically turn autoplay on, for no sound turn mute on and if you want your video will run continuously turn loop on.

Video Pro element makes it easier for you to show your video contents in the way you like.

Smooth Scroll 

If you are looking for a button that will move you directly to bottom or up, then this option will help you. Smooth Scroll option enables you to move directly to the specific page without any sort of scrolling. Only one simple click is enough to move all way long.

What's Improved in Quix 2.4.3? 

In this version, we have brought several improvements. These are-

Image width Control: Previously there was no control for image width in person element but now we have added it. You can control your image in the way you want.

Animated Header: In the animated header element, grid, alignment and position style improved.

Default Width Added: We have added a default image width for Blurb, Call2Action, and an Image element.

ImprovedStyless & Options for IE: We have improved behavior of Quix on internet explorer a lot. In earlier, version, some styles were broken and not working properly. Now everything is working fine and improved.

Core CSS Improvement: Core CSS has been added to improve some output.

We call it Quix Optimize because it will optimize the images of your site and boost the performance. Last month we have released a devastating feature called 'Quix Rank', which helps you to optimize the SEO of your website by yourself.

Let's see what Quix Optimize has brought for you. 

Image Compression & Re-optimization

A large page usually becomes a burden for your site and the size may increase due to large images. It will slow down the loading on the end of your client's browser. This will hamper a lot in your web business and therefore image compression is very much important.

The optimize feature will compress all of your big images in a balanced way. With just one click and all of your images will be optimized. If you want you can control the quality of compression. Consider decreasing the value of quality from Global Settings > Quix Configuration, if the size is big. Then just get back to your page and click on 'Re-Optimize' and your images will be re optimized according to your preference. 

Image srcset with Image Resize & Regeneration for Each Device

Optimizing images along with resizing for different devices and then placing them all over your site is very much tough. This will not only kill your valuable time but also take hard work from you. The srcset of Quix optimize will help you to resize your images automatically for different sizes of display.

Currently it resizes for 5 type of display width sizes - 

  • Large Desktop(1900) 
  • Desktop(1400)
  • Tablet(1024)
  • Mobile(786)
  • Mini Screen(400). 

You don't need to do anything manually at all. One more benefit of srcset is, you can set different images for the same place in different devices.

For example, you can set an image of a house for desktop size display, an image of a tree for the tablet size display and an image of a bird for mobile size display. You have the freedom to set any image for any devices at anywhere. 

Generate WebP Format Image For Mobile

WebP is a very popular lossless image format used in a website. This format allows you to optimize your images at a hence that it will look exactly the same but the size will be extremely small. With Quix optimize you can easily generate webP format image.

LazyLoading

 Waiting is something that we all hate, in fact, a huge percent of your traffic might drop due to waiting while your site loads. This load time may increase for different reasons, one of the reason is loading every image at once. This problem can be solved with lazy loading as it loads the images as your visitor scrolls down the page.

It will improve your page load time a lot. Facebook, Youtube, and a lot other major websites are using lazyload and now you can use it with lazy load.

New Dashboard

A brand new dashboard has been added with this version of Quix. In this dashboard, you can see the status of total optimization in one place. It will let you know how much space you save with QuixOptimize feature.

SERPs Preview

 30+ Assessment Checks

 Combined with 30+ assessment rules, Quix will make sure that your page is properly optimized for search engine ranking. Quix utilizes Yoast assessment checker that is, proven, powerful and up-to-date. Some of the major assessments are:

Internal Links 

Internal linking is very important for your site. Both search engines and users use links to navigate through your site and search the content they want to find.

This assessment will give you score for internal links within your content. Moreover, adding internal links will allow search engines to find out the type and value of your content. The more links your page has the more important it will be to search engines.

Outbound Links 

Outbound links are those links which refer to another site from yours. This assessment will check if you have any outbound links in your content.

Outbound links help one site to relate with other and helps to found easily by users & search engines. By helping each other a little we will be able to connect the dots of the web. This will allow Google to increase the authority of your site.

Length of Focus Keyword 

This assessment checks whether your page has focus keyword and whether it is too short or long. Google likes long tail keywords rather than short ones. Posit, "page builder" is a small keyword with two words and "best free page builders" is a keyword(longtail) with 4 words.

As the first keyword is already available in the second keyword and it's a long tail keyword, Google will give more value to the second one. It will help you to boost your SEO. It is wise to use long tail keyword but if it doesn't go with your content then you can use short ones.

Length of Meta Description 

The meta description is very much important for two reasons - 1. Increasing ranking, 2. Increasing click-through rate. The more good meta description you have, the more your traffic increase.

In meta description, you can put as much as the character you want. Then what is the need to maintain the length?

Actually, if you put more than 140-155 characters, extra characters will be cut up automatically. If you put less than 140 characters, your meta description might not attract any users.

Therefore it is important to maintain the ideal length of the meta description.

The Length of SEO Title 

The length of your post's SEO title is checked with this assessment. When people search in any search engine they see the results with a matched title and description. This title is called SEO title.

This title needs to be ideal(60-70 characters) in width and contain the focus keyword. The more optimized the title the more quickly this post will rank higher in the specific search term. Title catches the eyesight of the users and when they are attracted they will click through your page.

Function Words in Keyphrase 

Function words in keyphrase assessment checks, whether your text consists of keyphrase and warns you if there is not. For example, you might get distracted while typing your keyphrase and you only entered "the" instead of "the best page builder". Quix SEO option will warn you that, the keyphrase choice of yours is suboptimal.

Including Focus Keyword in Introduction 

The first paragraph of your content is the key location for both your search engines and users. It grabs the attention of your users and Google also considers this as an important one. The focus keyword in the first paragraph gives specific clues about your article to search engines.

Sometimes Google uses the first paragraph of your content as the meta description of your page. This assessment makes sure to use the focus keyword in the introduction. Make sure your content introduction reflects accurately what's it about and include the focus keyword there.

Balancing Keyword Distribution 

You have heard about the focus keyword. The ranking of your post depends pretty much on it. Google uses focus keyword to understand about your post, you have to put the keyword throughout the text in a balanced way. This will help you to rank your page for a specific term.

Quix SEO's this assessment will tell you whether the keyword is distributed throughout the text. Green signal means, distributed correctly and read signal for wrong distribution. You will be able to see all your specific keyword with a single click in this assessment. Then you can increase or decrease the density of the keyword.

Image Alt Attribute 

The image alt attribute is also known as alt tag or alt text. It shows the description text of the image. Probably you have heard a saying "a picture is worth a thousand words", your article will become a lot more attractive to viewers with images.

But how google will read it? If you add an alt text to the image just describing in a few words, any search engine will be able to easily read it. It will improve the ranking of your image search. That's why it is important to add an alt tag to images.

Text Length 

To rank well in the search engines, a blog post should contain at least 300 words. Long posts will get easily ranked rather than short posts. From posts more than 1000 words, search engines get more clues to determine what the text is about.

This assessment will make sure that you write the minimum words and will give you a green, yellow or red signal.

Add Knowledge Graph Metadata

Knowledge graph fetches the necessary information from your webpage and presents them in a beautiful way. With Quix's enhanced SEO plugin, you can provide all information in one place so your website rank for more keywords and command a larger area in the search result page.

Conclusion 

 We hope that this brand new feature will ease your workflow and save your money. In future updates, we will enhance this feature much more. Don't forget to tell about your experience and thoughts, just express it all in the comment box.

'Slider', what do you think of it when you read it?

In the field of web development, slider means to slide an object. This object can be image, video, text etc. Saving up space and dynamically changing of images or texts, makes a slider more desirable element.

The best way to build a bridge between you and your visitor is an awesome content. Write the post in a manner that your audience will ingest it and will keep coming back for more. But what about those visitors who find the post boring and rush to the ending of the post? How to keep them stuck to the post and drive them crazy to take a closer look?

Well, decorate the content with some exclusive designing option like slider, media carousel, testimonial carousel, form element etc . A slider holds multiple posts but displays one at a time, transitioning from one post to the next automatically or at the click of a button. This makes the site look more interesting.

Quix page builder has complete padding control over each and every section, column and element. You can easily increase or decrease space between each of them. But helix framework might not work properly while decreasing the space from the header to the main body and main body to footer with Quix.

To get rid of this problem in one stroke you can change the setting of Helix ultimate. Once you set the padding value in Helix Ultimate template option, it will be applied over all the pages. You can set the complete page on full width without padding. This will make the page look more dynamic.

Full width control of Quix Page

By default, Helix framework comes with its container class. So while creating a page in quix within this framework, you might not be able to expand your contents to full width. No matter what settings you alter in Quix, it will be of no use unless you enable full-width option from helix.

To do this go to template panel of helix > Layout builder > Main Body settings. Now enable fluid width and you are done. It gives the page a dynamic look.
