Creating websites can be at times a repetitive task. After all, many pages are often laid out with the same structure: just about every website has a header, a footer, and probably a number of sections.
This is one of the things we wanted to tackle with Forge, and we are finally ready for a new update. Today, we are releasing version 1.3, which is focused on helping you create fully-featured pages with as little as 2 clicks.
Premade layouts that you can use on your website
The biggest feature of this update is the new Premade Layouts section. You can now navigate to the options dropdown in the page builder, and access a collection of readily-available layouts.
If you hover over each one of these layouts, you will be able to see a preview of an entire page. And if you select a layout, all of its content will be automatically imported into your page.
That’s right: with two clicks you can create a professional-looking layout on any WordPress site.
For now, there are 5 different premade layouts, but this is just the beginning. We plan to create many more for various purposes, depending on the type of site you are trying to develop:
- Landing Pages
- Contact sections
- About pages
Create fully functional navigation menus
The other big highlight of this update is the navigation menu element. With it, you can now create a working list of menu items, just like the main header of your site.
We wanted to add anvigation menus for a long time since they are an eseential part of WordPress. You can comfortably manage them from the admin area, and build your pages only once.
This way, you can create any kind of website from scratch.
