July was a big month here at Carrot — we have some exciting updates to share that will make creating and editing your pages even easier
The Visual Editor - Smoother Than Ever
Over the last many months we've put the new Visual Editor in all of your hands to make creating, editing, and adding content to your posts and pages simpler. Everyone now has the powerful drag-and-drop tools, pre-built block patterns, and real-time previews. Well we have more exciting news to share!
This month the team has been hard at work to uplevel our interface and offer a smoother and more efficient visual editing experience. Here’s how:
- Block Patterns have a new home: Now when you add a Block, you can select a Block or Block Pattern from the same menu. You also have the ability to search for a block and can view a preview of the block before you add it to your page.
- More Cover Block design possibilities: New cover block options including content alignment, video positioning, and padding unlock more design possibilities.
- Smoother editing experience: A lot of additional fixes and features have been added to make an all-around smoother Visual Editor experience:
- Improved scroll and ordering features for a better drag and drop experience
- Easy in-line upload of external images
- New image editing options (think: crop images on the fly!)
- Modify many block attributes at once
- New inline text formatting options
- Plus an improved interface to make all of your editing easier and more enjoyable 😁
- The sidebar will default to hidden when creating new pages 🙌🏼
- We’ve been working on the new account creation process for our new Onboarding flow we mentioned in our June update to get it ready for internal testing 🔬
- The new Membership Editor UI is now functional, so now we’re working on a few back-end items to get it ready for prime time 🎉
- Some of our oldest, most cherished sites are getting an uplift! If you've been with Carrot for a while now you may get contacted by someone on our support team to discuss getting you empowered with all our latest site building tools. 💖
