πŸ“±πŸ’»πŸŒ Ucraft V2 updates worth knowing about

If you're using Ucraft, you've probably been anticipating some new features. Well, wait no longer - your wish is our command.
Introducing the revamped Ucraft version 0.2. Try it out ASAP! 

 

This version includes the following:

  • Mobile editor - separate control over your site’s mobile, tablet and desktop versions

  • Improved multilingual support - your pages and their layouts will now be synced across all languages, allowing you to have improved localized versions of your website 

  • Language visibility - hide or display specific content for selected languages on your website

  • Performance improvements - websites are now even faster

  • Updated URL for edit mode - edit mode of your updated website will be available under {{currentsitename}}.ucraft.site/design

πŸ“Œ But before this..

In order to access Ucraft v2.0, all you need to do is go to the Edit mode of your website, and a badge will appear on the bottom of your screen offering you to try out v2.0. 

If you don't see the badge yet, don't worry, you will see it soon 😎

Click on the button now and follow the instructions provided. Since then, you will be taken through a short migration process and eventually a new website under yoursitename.ucraft.site URL will be deployed.

* Please note that these changes will not have any effect on your existing sites. 

Mobile editor πŸ“±πŸ’»

Approximately 66% of the world’s population is now on mobile devices. Keeping your site mobile friendly ensures faster loading time, which means the better the mobile experience - the more conversions.

As you know, Ucraft automatically gives you a mobile-optimized version of the template that you are using, so you don’t really have to do much to get your website optimized on a mobile device. All you need to do is play with visibility options for each element and block, and you are set.

But we decided not to stop there, rolling out our brand new Mobile Editor to give you separate design control over your site’s mobile, tablet and desktop versions.

 

Click the Switch to Mobile icon on your left panel of the editor to access the mobile and tablet versions of your site. You can now make changes like page layout, colors, background images and much more with no need of duplicating the existing block or element for different devices. Cool, right?

Since Ucraft transfers all your content directly to the tablet and mobile versions of your site, you can also hide certain things, giving you control over what to show and what to hide.
If there's an item you'd like to hide from other views, select it and go to Visibility Settings β†’ Device Visibility.

Desktop, tablet, and mobile view

When creating publications, check the different view modes regularly to make sure your publication is showing properly in different screen sizes. 

Bear in mind that the view modes are an indication of what your publication will look like on desktop, tablet, and mobile devices. 

The end view will still vary based on your visitors’ specific screen size.

When a change is done, for example a new block, color or an effect is added, all 3 views will be affected.
However, changes in other things like the elements, image updates, block arrangements, etc. follow a hierarchy:

  • Desktop: changes to your desktop affect your tablet and mobile views.

  • Tablet: changes to your tablet affect mobile and tablet, but not desktop view.

  • Mobile: changes that affect mobile, don’t affect desktop or tablet view

 

With Ucraft, you have the freedom to make your website look exactly the way you want.

Multilingual feature πŸŒπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡―πŸ‡΅πŸ‡©πŸ‡ͺ

We’ve taken our multilingual functionality to the next level. 

After adding multiple languages to your website, the layout and design remain regardless of the language you are using.

However, with Ucraft Multilingual, you can create different versions of the same site (e.g. an English version, a German version, etc.) and customize the content (text, images, layout etc.) according to language.
Please note that edits made in the default language version of your site will be applied to your other language versions as well.
But that’s not all. You can also hide or display specific content for selected languages on your website with the help of our new Language Visibility settings. 

πŸ“Œ Important to know

You can not apply Language Visibility to a specific Element. To set visibility rules, either move the Element to a specific Block or set the rules on the current Block Settings.

 

Ucraft Multilingual comes with a Switch Languages panel to make it easy to switch from one language to the next while working on your site.

It’s been a busy month here at Ucraft, and we have even more new and amazing tools and features coming your way. Stay tuned to keep up with all of the ways you can make your edits awesome!  ✌🏼
