This time, the main focus is put on improving the user experience and adding more customization options. So, let’s check new features one by one and see whether there is something you always wanted!

Better UX

Lots of MotoPress Content Editor users can now see the following changes in the plugin:

Text editing panel on top – your text polishing tool is now always located at the same place! It was moved on top to be instantly visible no matter which content element you are editing.

Add images easier – add images to the text editing area with one click right from the text editing toolbar.

“Quote” element accessible quicker – you don’t have to go to the whole list of elements to add quotes – it’s now logically placed onto the text editing panel.

Optionally sticky settings block and style builder  – when editing the styles of any content element, you can make a style builder sticky to that exact content element, so it’s much easier to navigate in the editing area and not lose your focus. Alternatively, you can put it from the right.

Duplicate rows and columns

Have you already got used to more visually noticeable rows (green icons) and columns (blue icons)? We hope it really simplified the overall understanding of how the ‘’site architecture’’ system works. Additionally, from now on you may use following features:

Duplicate or remove columns or rows in clicks – in the updated WordPress Page Builder you may see 2 buttons, which are responsible for duplication and removing your rows and columns (just like you are doing with content elements), so you are provided with more editing flexibility.

Duplicate rows and columns keeping their styles – you may also create rows and columns, customize them with your own styles and simply duplicate them keeping your own custom styles. No repetition work at all!

Image Editing toolbar

Default WordPress image editing toolbar inside the text element of MotoPress Content Editor is another great improvement! Using native WordPress functionality integrated with the builder, you may get more out of your text/images balance. You’ll enjoy familiar and professional WordPress interface for inline image editing.

Remember, these are just small enhancements! Our lead developers are currently working on the extensive roadmap of the most essential and awaited features! It will take time as with any serious work, but we are sure it will give you reasons to fall in love with MotoPress Page Builder again!

  • Geoff Griffiths

    I assume that you have not seen Elementor then…

    • Hello Geoff! Thanks for stopping by. We are keenly aware of what our competitors are doing 🙂 As it was mentioned in the post, these are just small improvements. The huge ones are coming soon – and you are gonna be pleasantly surprised!

      • Geoff Griffiths

        I do not like the fact that having purchased MotoPress I will now need to renew my licence and pay more to receive updates…No thanks.

        • Sorry, but looks like you misunderstood something!

          1. You are not obligated to renew your license – the Page Builder will work as usually, but you won’t receive support and updates.

          2. If you decide to renew you license, you pay 50% LESS for the next year and on (for any license). So, if you are on a personal plan, for example, which is $29, your
          recurring payment will be just a half of this price.

          3. There is an absolutely free version of the plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/motopress-content-editor-lite/

          What’s more, MotoPress Page Builder offers the most affordable pricing plans on the market. Compare with Elementor Pro, for example – they charge $49 as a recurring yearly payment for 1 site, with a bit ambiguous explanation of renewal discounts – “we offer a 50% discount for active customers. After the license has expired the discount is gone.”

          We hope we helped you solve this puzzle.

          • Geoff Griffiths

            No puzzle…It will cost me $15 for Updates…No thanks.

          • It’s up to you, definitely. We’re just trying to explain things which may seem not that clear to you (we made this conclusion based of your wrong statement “I will now need to renew my licence and pay more to receive updates”.)

            And of course, all people on personal plans will need to pay $15 yearly if they want to receive updates and support. This is what is explained on the product’s page.This is what all other page builder providers do (and not only they) – charge a recurring payment. But there are few who charge such a small fee as we do.

            For example, for Elementor Pro you’ll need to pay $49 or $25 yearly, for Visual Composer – $49 now and then $59 after the launch, etc. So we are pretty sure that purchasing MotoPress Page Builder people don’t leave money on the table.

          • Geoff Griffiths

            If “I will now need to renew my licence and pay more to receive updates” is the wrong statement does that mean that “I will ‘ not ‘ have to renew my licence and pay $15 for updates” is the correct statement?

          • No, we are only emphasizing the ‘more’ part 🙂 You don’t have to pay more, you pay less (as we offer 50% discount on recurring payments.)

    Can you add static css file generation feature like your competitor? Static CSS files speed up your site by reducing your page’s document size, allowing CSS files to be cached and enhancing the delivery of those CSS styles.

    • Hi Paul,
      Thank you for your feedback. We’ve added it to our features’ list for further updates. We appreciate your attention.

  • Paul Budiman

    This is a great news, but how this content editor will compete with the upcoming Gutenberg in WP 5.0?

    • Hi Paul,
      Thank you for a good question. One of main advantages of our builder is grid – columns and true drag and drop functionality. We’ll simply do our best to make our Visual Builder as useful and handy as possible))
