Extensions (also called add-ons or plugins) are components which enhance the functionality of WYSIWYG Web Builder. Extensions can be accessed through the Toolbox or via the Insert menu just like the standard objects.
The Online Gallery page displays all extensions available for download and installation. If a new version of an extension that you already have is available online, then you have the choice to update it. Each time you open this window, Web Builder will ask if you wish to download the most recent list from the website. Normally you will have to do this only once a week.
This section will display a list of the available updates for the extensions you have installed.
The Manual Install page allows you to manually install extensions.
Click the 'Install' button to select an extension file (*.wbx) or zip file.
You can also drag & drop one or more extensions from Windows Explorer on this window!
You can also manually install extensions by copying the .wbx or .uwbx file to the extensions folder:
C:\Users\Your Name\Documents\WYSIWYG Web Builder\system\extensions
where 'Your Name' is the name of your personal folder on the computer.
Note: the actual location of the extensions folder is controlled by the 'system folder' configuration in Tools -> Options -> Files & Folders
Extensions are made available as an extra service for registered users. Extensions do not work in the trial version because they are not an official part of the software!
There is no official support on (free) extensions. ll extensions are provided "AS IS" for users who find them useful. But of course we will do our best to make sure they work properly. We would not have shared them if they did not work. So, please read the documentation if something does not work.
There is already a long list of official extensions and in the we continue release new of extensions to make WYSIWYG Web Builder even more powerful than it already is. Some extensions are simply components with few parameters while other are almost complete applications by themselves!
