Quix AMP

​Before implementing Quix AMP, you need to know what is AMP and why you really need AMP in your website. So, let me explain what exactly AMP is and how it will make you beneficial. 

What is AMP?



At first, you need to know what is AMP & how it works. Accelerated Mobile Pages(AMP) is an open-source initiative aimed at helping publishers improve the speed and readability of their mobile content pages. 

It is an application that provides a user the functionality to create mobile-optimized content instantly loaded everywhere.

​Why AMP is Important for Your Website?


AMP is important because it helps web pages load faster which potentially improves usability and convinces visitors to stay longer on your site engaging with your content.

  1. Lightning Speed: The one thing that AMP is known for is its lightning speed. It encourages websites to load quickly. It acts as a boon for mobile lovers to open heaviest of the websites to load instantly. People who are generally mobile phone users prefer to lightning speed sites to browse. It is creating a good online impression, particularly for news portals.
  2. Reduce Bounce Rate: Slow-loading websites are one of the primary culprits for the high mobile bounce rate. AMP pages significantly lower bounce rates by rapidly rendering the website, thus enhancing the rank of the website. Fast loading websites offer better user experience and can improve your traffic.
  3. Improve User Experience: Faster mobile pages + readable content = better user experience. Your user will get a much faster load process if you use AMP on your site. Moreover, they're going to have less of the things that they don't need because AMP cut down unnecessary contexts that reader will need or care about.
  4. High Ranking: Page Loading speed & mobile friendliness are the significant factors for SEO and AMP both. By this factor, AMP content is ranked higher than the sluggish and unresponsive websites.
  5. Optimization for Bloggers: Websites which are going to be benefited by this are Blogging sites, News Portals and Publishing sites. These sites produce bundles of content and update it more frequently. The owner of that kind of sites, don't need to optimize the whole site to AMP. Just convert blog section or updates section to AMP to witness mind-boggling results.

What Is Quix AMP?


After long time research, test and tons of bug fix today we have released Quix AMP. Our developer team tested Quix AMP in multiple sites, including our official website too. We are quite happy with the output. Therefore, finally, we have integrated AMP with our revolutionary Joomla page builder - Quix. Our target is to make any Joomla website blazing fast on Mobile.

Features of Quix AMP

Quix AMP comes with lot's of notable and unique features. Most important features are:

  1. AMP in Page Builder: Before we implemented AMP in Joomla page builder, it was a dream for every Joomla users who wanted to have AMP in page builder. However, this is not a dream now as we made it real. For the very first time, we have brought AMP as a core feature of Joomla page builder - Quix. 
  2. Page Level Control: Page level control means you will have the authority to decide either you want to enable AMP on your particular content or you want to disable it. You are the decision holder so that AMP won't be a hassle for you. 
  3. Super Easy to Control: It is really easy to use Quix AMP as it doesn't require your coding or any extra technical skill to access on your site. All you need to do is "enable or disable" it, and it is ready to serve you. 
  4. Handy Global Configuration: Another easiest part of Quix AMP is its configuration phase. It will take your few moments to configure it as your demands. You can follow our configuration procedures that are described below to get a better sense. 
  5. Interactive AMP: Our Quix AMP is not only deal with your images or texts but also it deals with all the Quix elements (35) including column, form, heading, gallery, and so on.

How to Configure Quix AMP?

Quix AMP is not only enabled or disabled it but also you can configure it so that it becomes more appealing to your visitors. Either you can modify the styling settings of Quix AMP, or you can use it without modifying it, the decision is yours. However, if you want to configure it, then follow the strategies stated below.

  • Step 02: The first one is the Header Background. It will allow you to set any colored background by choosing the color code that is already given there.
  • Step 03: The second one is the Header Color. In the same way just like Header Background, you can change your Header Color.

Real Life Experiences after Implementing AMP Using Quix 

We implemented AMP using Joomla page builder - Quix on our site. Guess what? You won't believe me how many positive changes we have observed after implementing AMP on our site. The changes influenced us to believe that it will make our users' website blazing fast, better-ranked, and at the same time more profitable. 

I'm going to share with you guys some of the important cases that I've enjoyed on my site. So, let's explore it in details. 

Page speed

As I mentioned before, the one thing that AMP is known for is its lightning speed. So, no compromise with speed, right? Yeah! It will take you less than a second to display the content. As a result, it boosts up your site speed. I can give you an example of how fast it is! Carefully notice the images below.

First one is before applying AMP on your ThemeXpert site. The second one is after applying AMP on our site. You can clearly detect the difference in the speed between two pages. This is how Quix AMP will make your site blazing fast without costing your extra money or extra effort.

Better Mobile Pageview

​Quix AMP will provide you a better mobile pageview than others. For instance, search Joomla SEO on your browser. You will get several search results. Among them, click the link that contains AMP sign. Now, observe the view of that page. 

It is absolutely eye-catching, perfectly fit with your phone layout and moreover, you don't need to scroll left and right to get the full view as it is already balanced with your screen width. Just scroll up-down and see your content.

Better for SEO

Undoubtedly Quix AMP is responsible for better SEO result. How? Okay, let me clarify you. Search Quix rank on your browser. It will provide a link with AMP sign that means Google automatically detects your content or page. 

I have mentioned "automatically" because you don't need to do extra modification or coding or something else to get the AMP sign beside your Google result. The only thing you need to do is that just enable Quix AMP from your Quix pro core settings as I have shown before.

Repeatable Item Sorting

​Another simple but very effective new feature is multiple items sorting on Form, Slider, and on other elements. It will enable you to move any of the items to any position you want. To access this feature follow the below screenshot. Click on the boxed icon and place it where you need to have that.

Repeatable Items Sorting

Page Save Validation Layer to Prevent Page Crash

It sometimes happens that after saving your page, it won't appear in the front end. After dealing deep with this problem, we have found adding some custom elements or data; you may face a page crash. Then our developer team decided to add an extra prevention layer to solve this problem. 

As a result, they have added an extra layer with our new Quix as a builtin feature so that it will inform you if any error occurred during saving your page. Sometimes, page crash due to sending data or something else. But not to be informed while error occurring is something really unwanted. But from today, our new Quix will inform you if you have any error inside your page builder.

Builder Performance Improved to More Than 400%

Joomla page builder - Quix performance is much more improved than ever before. It will amaze you with its response time and page loading time. You can't even imagine how less time now it consumes to insert an element or template on your page. Quix not only reduced its element inserting time but it also diminishes its response time.

Design and redesign your page in such a way that you want as Quix style changing becomes smoother than before. Changing background color, heading, text, slider image, repeatable items, etc. is no longer a hassle now. It responses you in a very smoother way. Moreover, drag and drop is more matured now. Section copy-pasting needs just a click to be done. 

Quix cut off its response time and page loading time in a significant number. Now, our revolutionary Joomla page builder - Quix 2.6.0 is 4x faster than before. The most amazing part is that it won't demand your extra effort or skills to get these features. So, download our updated Quix and enjoy the blazing fast speed and competes with your contemporary by having a super-fast website.

Add New Section from Section Settings

​Add new section option has been introduced with our updated Quix 2.6 that means you will be able to add any section to any where on your page you want. It will make your work more flexible and time saving at the same time hassle free. Designing flexibility is just one click away from you. 

Suppose, you want to add a section inside any template or block or any where on your current page, you just need to do is click on the right button, it will show you a "+ add" option, click on that option. Then add a section that you want to have on your page. That's all. 

Effective Updates

  1. ​Drag and Drop Support on Firefox Browser: Quix didn't have drag and drop support on Firefox browser. But that limitation is disappeared now. Today we are proudly announcing that our latest version of Quix is very much capable of providing you the drag and drop support on the Firefox browser. We are happy to add this support as we always pay heed to our beloved user demands. Now, it will allow you to use Quix drag and drop support on your Firefox browser.
  2. Undo-Redo improved: ​Now, Quix Undo-Redo option is more matured than previous version. In our Quix previous version, undo-redo option took a bit longer time to perform, but this time it acts like magical.
