Two weeks passed since the latest release PageFly Shopify page builder app version 1.0.5. Finally PageFly 1.0.6 is shipped successfully after the massive testing and overtime work at the last weekend. With this release, we focused on rebuilding the PageFly core code base with React V16.0 and UI refinement to make the app easier to use. Besides, some page elements have been added, so let’s move forward with details…
To work with PageFly without bugs, please make sure that you cleared the cache of web browser and used Google Chrome. PageFly pages work on most popular web browsers, but the get the best PageFly editing experience it’s recommended to use Chrome.
PageFly Welcome Dashboard has a new UI
In the brand new PageFly dashboard, we designed the space area with 05 information sections:
- Getting started area. The onboarding process was awful, and we understand that Shopify merchants find hard to use the product. So since this version, you can watch the video tutorial how to create the PageFly page. There is also the text CTA (Call To Action) directing you to submit a support ticket if you need help.
- Manage Pages. The idea of this section came from our own needs when we want to get access to the pages built with PageFly App. You can easily continue the work with latest pages created with PageFly.
- Page analytics. Quick access to important numbers of your store data. The data is synced automatically from your Google Analytics account.
- Notification Area - Latest Blog posts. At least 1 - 2 blog posts per week with tips and tricks for using PageFly and related to increasing your store sales.
- Notification Area - FAQ. Weekly update tutorials related to the product usage. You’ll learn how to maximize PageFly usage and get benefits from it.
Manage Pages is redesigned a little bit
As you can see the new version, PageFly has the new area with two buttons: Settings and Support. The block section containing buttons “Create a new page”, “Use your product page” and “View page analytics” has been moved to the left part of the list of your PageFly pages. We also renamed content page creation for the product page as “Use your product page.” During past, we have noticed that PageFly users misunderstand the purpose of that button. It’s you create the additional content and assign it to the existing product page. It’s not about the building the new product page with the PageFly app.
The newly designed Account page
This is the first step of preparation for the PageFly PAID subscription plan. Right after this version release, you can expect to see the next version of the premium plan. This page contains the basic information about the subscription plan of the PageFly app. If you want to be notified about the release PageFly PRO plan, just sign up to our newsletter.
Refined PageFly Editing UI Dashboard
The PageFly page builder editing dashboard has been redesigned a little bit. With moving the section "landing page template picker" from left column to the top bar (1), re-ordered the page elements (2) to make it easier to work with, added the element search box feature (3) and other stuff.
The landing page template picker has a new home
We’ve moved the icon to choose the landing page template to a new place. Why have we done that? Well… the feature of getting started with the pre-designed landing page is used only 01 or maybe few times during the session. So we thought that there was no serious demand.
Say hi to “Sections”. Page Elements has reorganized a little bit.
In the page element list, you can see new changes. When you click on the page element icon on the left column, you’d see 02 sections consisting of Page Elements and Sections. The section contains ready to use page elements compacted into the section. It’d save your time for page building and speed up the whole process.
In addition, when building the landing page we have noticed that some page elements are frequently used, some of them are not. So we putted the most frequently used elements to the top of list starting from “Layout”, continue with “Heading”, “Paragraph” and other elements.
