We've revamped our entire library of styles and this Canvas update comes with more than 300 new Bubble styles! Most page elements now have access to at least three different styles with support for different font weights (regular, semibold, and bold).
We've made some minor design updates to the log in page to better align with the design of the marketing and index pages.
Page Flair Group This page-level group includes a collapsible image banner, title, description, and toggle tabs. This group should be used when you want to further customize a page.
Block Title Group Most blocks will now come with a title group that includes a title, dropdown, toggle tabs, description text, sort dropdown, filters, and a new button. This group should be used when you need to add a title group above a section of content.
Along with the new styles, we have added a brand new design library of all the Canvas pages and blocks. These elements will be used for all new Canvas templates.
If your app is on a version previous to v3.4.0 you can continue to add new pages & blocks from the extension and the elements added will be add with the style version your app is based on.
However, if you would like to take advantage of the new styles and elements, you will see a banner prompting you to import the new styles (003). Once you've imported the new styles you are able to toggle between the new design library and and the old design library to add new elements.
This Canvas update comes with host of new features as well as a full redesign of the admin portal. Be sure to check out the admin portal overview in the Getting Started section.
You can now create beautiful HTML marketing pages directly within the admin portal using the new Canvas Page Builder!
We have changed the way you add new Bubble pages to your application. You can now use the new Canvas Extension to add new Bubble pages & blocks directly within your editor.
We have made a couple key changes to the Pages option set.
The Pages option set has been renamed to Bubble Pages to differentiate it from the new Marketing pages feature
Previously we stored a list of Bubble Pages on the Role option set to define the pages a user was allowed to view. To simplify this, the Bubble Pages option now stores the list of Roles that can view that page enabling you to set a page's privacy status and define the roles that are allowed to view that page from the same place.
We realize in the past that Canvas blocks contained a lot of extra groups nested within other groups. As of this release, we have rebuilt all the Canvas blocks to minimize the number of groups that are used while still maintaining a fully responsive template!
With a brand new Sendgrid plugin we have moved the default email functionality to the front end instead of the using backend workflows. This means you can now send emails through Sendgrid with our beautiful HTML template without being on a paid Bubble plan.
The backend email functionality is still available for more robust email setups and scheduling.
