Pagecloud got a lot more powerful in 2020

Mark Stephenson, March 2, 2021

Despite COVID-19, we’ve kept busy at Pagecloud and thought we might brighten up your day with a roll-up of Pagecloud updates that have come your way over the last year. Some of which you may have noticed and others you may have missed.

A modern way to build

The most significant update from 2020 is the ability to build responsive Sections and content in Pagecloud using the same drag-and-drop ease you’ve come to expect. Create designs and content that resize and reflow across different screen sizes making mobile updates a breeze.

These new features are incredibly powerful but require a bit of knowledge to master. Learn all about it, Speed, structure, and design flexibility: Meet the new Pagecloud.


Expanded our Section library to include responsive sections

Full width Sections that span the full width of your visitor’s browser.

Full height Sections that span the full height of your visitor’s browser, great for impactful hero sections.

Manual and Auto columns. Sections now have columns, up to 3, that automatically stack in mobile. These Columns can support either a manual or auto layout. Get to know Columns

Padding can be added to Sections and Columns allowing you to create space between your content and the edge of the Section or Column.

Auto groups, like auto Columns, apply a structured layout to the contents of the group. Content is organized horizontally or vertically within the group in a way that allows it to act responsively. We’re quite excited about auto groups, updates to add backgrounds and padding to these groups are just around the corner! Learn about Auto groups 

Editing improvements

We’re constantly improving the editor based on your feedback. Here are some highlights from the last year:

Text editing. You edit text a lot! So we overhauled text editing to address issues and improve your workflow. Read all about it, Feature Update Alert! Text Editing

Handy Presets. We've added some presets to help you quickly apply consistent settings. Look for these on section and column padding, color tinting and shadows. Want more? let us know.

Gradients. You can now apply gradients to section and column backgrounds, shapes and buttons. Learn more about gradients 

New position options for Headers. Position your header the way you want, you can choose from the following options with more to come. Learn more about headers
