All built-in layouts are completely redesigned and updated

Meet new built-in layouts! We can call them new for their code has been completely rewritten. Now they all have a modern design and use the latest programming approaches to become even more responsive and mobile friendly.

  • Layouts now share a common internal structure with standardized CSS class names. It is now easier to compare layouts and find the parts of code you need. In the future, this will allow us to quickly implement new features, since all built-in layouts a unified now.
  • The layouts have been redesigned to reflect current web presentation methods and trends. We've increased headings and text size, and added more visual space through clever use of padding and margins. After that, the layouts became more similar to each other, which allows you to use them together on the pages of your sites.
  • We paid much attention to how the layouts work and look on various devices with different screen sizes. So you can expect much more flexible and responsive behavior.
  • No more strict font-family assignment for text and headings, which greatly simplifies the way built-in layouts adapt to your site design. Now the fonts that are defined in your site template are automatically used in RAXO module layouts.

Update Note

As this version contains a huge number of changes, we strongly recommend that you make a backup before updating.
