Version 1.2.0

Hello there!

It’s been a productive, busy and fun month since I wrote last time and today I am back to share some exciting news with you. We’re releasing the UABB 1.2.0 with many improvements and some really awesome features you’ll love. Let’s get to it!

White Label UABB

This much requested feature is finally out. If you use UABB to build websites for your clients, you can now white label the plugin and brand it as per your project needs. Many had requested white label option who strive to provide a seamless experience to their customers and keep the information in the WordPress backend uniformed.

Should you wish to learn more about this, check article in our knowledge-base here. Adam Preiser from WPCrafter.com has even made a video about this.

Revamped License Registration Process

The earlier process had many drawbacks and it was one of the most discussed topics in our Facebook group. So we’ve completely revamped the previous license registration process from the grounds up. Here are some of the highlights of the new process –

  • License registration form is in the plugin admin setting page itself
  • No more email sign up required before you register the license
  • The license key would be hidden after registration
  • Updates are checked with standard WordPress APIs
  • Many other behind the scene improvements

If you have already registered the license in our existing process, it would be maintained and you don’t need to do anything after the update. In case, you are curious how does this work on new sites, you can read about it here.

Live Preview

If you find yourself often publishing the page just to take a preview, we have a good news for you! We’ve added a Live Preview button that would temporarily disable the Page Builder controls with just a click. This video will give you a better idea –

You can learn more about it here.

Blog Posts Module Became Advanced

Since our Beta program, blog posts module was a hit. It added many new options that Beaver Builder did not provide. In 1.2.0 release, we’re taking this module even further with many new options and possibilities. Let me share a few highlights –

  • The module works on posts, pages as well as custom post types
  • You can display your products in a grid or carousel as well
  • Optional pagination for grid layout
  • Masonry Grid layout with sortable filters
  • Extensive meta and date format selection options

Take a look at the demos here to see this live.

Finding sections becomes much much easier

UABB comes with 150+ professionally designed row templates and we call them sections. These templates offer you a great jumpstart as we demonstrated in the previous update and you can literally build custom pages in minutes.

In this update, we’ve enhanced the search functionality so you can find the section you need faster.

New Modules

We’ve been working on many custom modules that will make your site stand out. And in this release, we are releasing couple of them.

Info Circle

“This look REALLY, REALLY great. Good stuff.” The first comment we received on our Facebook page when the info-circles were introduced! With many more comments and suggestions that followed, the info-circle has emerged to become a well-designed complete module that will leave you thrilled.

Take a look at it’s demo.

MailChimp Subscriber Form

Even though paid versions of Beaver Builder already offer an advanced Subscriber Form module, we had to create one for those who are still on the lite version. Furthermore this module adds nice stylings option so your optin forms making them look better. Demo here.

Version 1.1.0

Sawasdee Krab!

Well, I’m just back from Thailand and thought I’d say hi in Thai 😉

It’s only been 3 weeks since we launched UABB and today I have some exciting news to share with you. But first I wanted to share with you that the UABB soft launch was a huge success with over 300 new customers. Thank you!

We are dedicated to making UABB even more amazing than it currently is; and that leads me to the next big announcement, version 1.1.0 is now live. Let’s see what we have for you in this:

New Row Sections –

Sections

Making your workflow faster is the sole reason for creating this plugin. Right now, you probably start everything from scratch. You spend a most of your time looking for design inspirations for the content and then try to build it on your site.

To eliminate this hassle – we have made “Sections” which are ready to use, professionally designed Row Templates. Just look for a section that would suit your content, drag it on your page and change the content. Boom, you have a 100% custom page ready in just a few minutes!

With this update, we have now 150+ sections for you to start with! All of these are sections –

  • Responsive (of course)
  • Professionally Designed
  • Pixel Perfect
  • Designed to take values from the theme (headings, colors) so they instantly match on your site.
  • Coupled with UABB Global Settings

I made a quick video for you to get an idea how fast you can build your custom pages with sections!

Give this a try on your site! I’m sure you would love them as we do 🙂

New Templates Manager Admin Setting

As we’re adding more templates with every update, it was essential that we provide you controls to choose which modules you need active on your site. So check this screenshot of new admin setting page we’ve added in this update. On this screen, you can choose the category of templates that you want to enable or disable on your site.

Introducing New Module: Price Box.

Pricing-Table

A powerful and flexible yet elegant price box module is finally here! Checkout its demos and take a glimpse of just a few of the amazing design possibilities. Some of the noteworthy features of UABB price box module –

  • Possibility to Highlight a particular pricing box
  • Add Legend Box (kind of comparison table)
  • Better Management of Responsive Sizes

Tip – If you would like to disable any module that you don’t plan using, you may disable them in modules setting.

UABB Now Supports the Core Beaver Builder Color Picker.

We have integrated a different color picker in UABB modules (Iris) as we find it more intuitive. Furthermore it supports RGBA values. However, we found many still prefer the core Beaver Builder color picker as it allows to save them color presets.

So here is a setting that would let you choose the color picker that you want.

We have integrated these two color pickers closely so they can speak to each others! Take a look at this video or refer this article for more information.

Important Change in the Row Separator –

With the earlier version of the UABB, it was possible to add a row separator to either the top, bottom or both top and bottom parts of the row. However, in this release, we have introduced two separate settings which would allow you to set row separators to the top, bottom or both ends of a row individually. More flexibility and freedom!

This change (although unlikely) may not be backwards compatible. So if you have used row separators on your live sites with the earlier version of UABB, we recommend you take a look after your update the plugin to latest version. This may sound a bit concerning, but we decided to make this change is UABB is still very new and we haven’t seen many using row separators yet.

Other Changes –

  • Improvement: Advanced Separator – Introduced responsive image size option
  • Improvement: Blog Posts – Introduced post count checks for carousel
  • Improvement: Blog Posts – Improved custom excerpt logic
  • Improvement: Contact Form – Introduced input field padding options
  • Improvement: Creative Link – Introduced stack option for mobile devices
