I. New updates on key extensions

1. Magezon Page Builder

Previously, when you want to add a link into some elements, you get only 1 choice. It’s to enter the exact URL into the link field.

Like this

Call to Action - Old link builder
Call to Action – Old link builder

Thus, the old Link section gets the following disadvantages:

  • It’s inconvenient to update if the links are changed
  • Takes time to copy custom links
  • High risk of wrong URLs

Deeply understand the circumstance, we decided to update the link section to be more convenient and user-friendly. Here below are the link builders in some certain elements as examples.

Link builder update - Call to action
Link builder update – Call to action
Link builder update - Heading
Link builder update – Heading
Link builder update - slider
Link builder update – slider

List of 10 elements with link builder updated:

So, after hitting the Select Url button, a pop-up will appear to configure the links. There are 4 types of links supported:

4 Link types supported
4 Link types supported

a. Custom link

Using this link type means you can add custom URL from other sites. And, you have to paste the exact URL address in the Url field (required field).

Then, define the Title for the link and decide whether to Open the link in a new tab or Add no-follow option to link or not.

Link builder - Custom type
Link builder – Custom type

Try setting a Call to Action element like below with the Custom link configured:

Call to Action - Custom link backend
Call to Action – Custom link backend

The result:

Call to Action - Custom link frontend
Call to Action – Custom link frontend

Note: If the original link changed, you still need to update the URL to match with the target site.

b. Category link

This type of link allows you to select links of Category Pages in the whole website. The categories are organized with default Magento system. Entering the keyword to search helps find your desired category page even faster.

Link builder - Category type
Link builder – Category type

Similarly, try adding Training page link into the Heading element like this:

Heading - Category Page Link backend
Heading – Category Page Link backend

And the result:

Heading - Category link frontend
Heading – Category link frontend

Note: The target Category site will be directed even if its URL is changed. As a result, URL is automatically updated and no need to fix the link from the backend anymore.

c. Product link

Navigate visitors to the Product page directly with this type of link. All you need to do is to search the product by name and click on a certain one. Plus, no matter how its URL will change, the link assigned by link builder still leads visitors to the desired product page, exactly.

Link builder - Product link
Link builder – Product link

For example, let’s configure the below setting:

Heading - Product link backend
Heading – Product link backend

And, how it works on the front:

Heading - Product link frontend
Heading – Product link frontend

d. Page link

Last, if you want to lead your visitors to some of your pages in the default system, link builder can also help. Like Category and Product Page links, no matter how its URL will change, the link assigned still lead to the desired page, exactly.

Link builder - Page link
Link builder – Page link

Now, try adding page link for our Heading:

Heading - Page link backend
Heading – Page link backend

And the result:

Heading - Page link frontend
Heading – Page link frontend

2. Ninja Menus 2.0.1

Ninja Menus 2.0.1 comes with brand new user interface and more helpful functions. Not all, we added some more Styling fields inside the General section.

Ninja Menus - New styling fields

The configuration includes:

(1) Main Font Size: Set the font size for the text of the main menu

(2) Main Font Weight: Set the font weight for the text of the main menu

(3) Main Color: Allows configure the main menu text’s color

(4)  Main Background Color: Allows configure main menu background’s color

(5)  Main Hover Color: Set the color of the main menu’s text while hovering

(6)  Main Hover Background Color: Set the color of the main menu’s background while hovering

(7)  Secondary Color: Allows set the submenu text’s color

(8)  Secondary Background Color: Allow set the submenu background’s color

(9)  Secondary Hover Color: Set the color of the submenu’s text while hovering

(10)  Secondary Hover Background Color: Set the color of the submenu’s background while hovering

With this section, you can configure the overall look of the navigation menu more quickly and conveniently. No need to configure single parts and elements of the menu again and again.

Let’s take an example to see:
