SEO

Post by Pablo » Sun Sep 12, 2021 7:22 am

- New feature: Added “Include width and height attributes in images to prevent Cumulative Layout Shifts” option in Tools -> Options -> HTML.
This specifies whether to include width and height attributes (width="800" height="600") in <img> tags in addition to CSS. This helps the browser to allocate the correct amount of space in the document while the image is loading. This may be useful to improve Google's lighthouse 'Best Practice' scores.

Image


- New feature: Added “Include structured data in navigation objects for improved SEO ranking” option in Tools -> Options -> HTML.
Specifies whether to include structure data (https://schema.org/SiteNavigationElement) in navigation items. This may help search engines to better understand the structure of the menus on the page.

Table Of Contents

Post by Pablo » Sun Sep 12, 2021 1:10 pm

Table Of Contents
- New feature: A Table Of Contents is a list of links that lead to different sections on a page.

Every time you preview or publish the page, WYSIWYG Web builder will scan the page for heading objects (H1, H2 etc.) and update the list. You can also configure the list manually.

Image Hotspots

Post by Pablo » Tue Sep 14, 2021 7:09 am

Image Hotspots
Renamed ‘Image Map’ to ‘Image Hotspots’. The 'Image Hotspots' object is now responsive.
Hotspot coordinates will automatically be recalculated when the size of the image changes in a layout grid or breakpoints.

- New feature: Added the ability to show tooltips for hotspots.

Image

Image


- New feature: Added new 'icon' hotspot. This makes it possible to use icons on the image map. Each hotspot can have its own icon, size, text color and background color. It also possible to add a pulsate animation to the icon to grab the attention of the visitor.

Image


- New feature: Added the ability to import hotspots from SVG files. This can be useful for importing SVG maps, so you do not have to enter the coordinates manually.

Image

Image


- New feature: Sometimes the number of imported points may be too much for a hotspot. In that case, you can use the ‘Simply Path’ option. This will reduce the number of points in the list based on the Ramer–Douglas–Peucker algorithm:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ramer%E2% ... _algorithm

The epsilon parameter defines level of "simplicity".

Image


- Improved: Hotspots now have their own ID. This can be used (for example) to show a Popover Card or a Tooltip object.

Responsive Web Design

Post by Pablo » Tue Sep 14, 2021 5:17 pm

Responsive Web Design
- New feature: Added 'needs review' functionality. When using breakpoints, modifications in one view may also affect the layout in other breakpoints. For example, if you have added a new object then you may need to change the size or position in another breakpoint. WYSIWYG Web Builder now shows a 'needs review' icon for those breakpoints to remind you about this. As soon as you switch the breakpoint, the 'needs review' state will be cleared.
