Moonfruit 8 months ago in Responsive pages (beta) • updated 2 months ago 12

Let us know if you think this is an important option to have.

responsive pages

Right now, responsive pages show a lot of potencial but need several tweaks in order to be able to be used as final solution. This is one of the main tweaks it needs for header footers become usable in any website more complex then a few similar pages.

Please can you give an idea of when this will be added. It is becoming frustrating having to wait for this important feature, as it will make both pc and mobile versions look the same, as having a V6 editor enter/splash page really makes a website look unprofessional on a mobile, when it looks like 2 different websites!

Any timescale on when this will be done. This thread seems to have been forgotten about with updates!

We don't understand why this is not done yet. It is essential for header and footers to be usable in a website bigger the just one page...

This is something we would expect to be done along time a go :((.

Is there any update on this feature, or is it like all the others that we have asked for, now not happening? Lets have some honest transparency as to what is going on.Monnfruit. You are starting to look like the bad old days again, and this is something you need to sort out ASAP. Just be totally honest and tell everyone in a newsletter what is really going on. Also don't leave this on Moderation, so nobody can read this. That stinks of hiding something!

At the moment, this work is still planned but is not in progress. We are still working on other parts of the editor that have been requested more and are currently a higher priority than this. However, I will see if we can bump this and fit it in any sooner. I'll let you know with an update this week.

Not good enough. this was asked for 5 months ago and has more votes than some of the features you have done. So it seems you are just picking the ones you can do. This needs to be done ASAP!!!

I think the editor was becoming great, but it is still unusable in many aspects because instead of correcting features that are core and essential to make it useful, Moonfruit keeps adding extra features just because they are voted. I confess I lost a bit of interest in Moonfruit a couple of months ago and .I am not surprised my last comment was done 1 month ago. 

Capital features such as navigation menus, header/footer visibility or copy/paste ability between pages are structural and should not be left dependent to voting. On the other hand, things such as more templates are probably voted a lot but are not essential.

Thanks for your comments. I want to stress that although votes and requests are taken into consideration, ultimately they do not determine what we work on. We take a lot of things into account when planning what we will work on next.

It’s a shame to hear that you lost interest in what we were doing, but I can understand your reasons why. Some of the core features we have been working on have taken some time to be developed, and I can appreciate that can be a bit disheartening but comments like this are welcomed.

Improved navigation is a big priority for us to sort out and I agree that copy and pasting to other pages is also important to many users. We had not been getting much feedback on header/footer visibility control. This is why we had not considered this as a high priority compared to other things for the majority of users, so although it was definitely planned, it was delayed so we could work on other things. Regarding your point about templates, we felt it was important to offer more section templates as editing them can help users get to grips with how you can use the features and build responsive pages.

Following these comments, though, I am finding out if we can address the header/footer visibility sooner. As promised, I will update this thread before the end of the week.


We have just finished off some changes to how responsive pages get saved/published (I have previously spoken about this). This work still needs to be tested (testing may bring up issues that need to be fixed). Once this work is released, we believe it should be relatively simple to add an option to hide the header/footer from specific pages. It would be more complicated if we tried to do it before this other work was released, so we cannot look into it before then.

The release date for the save/publish work does depend on how testing goes and whether we find issues with it, but we hope it should be either next week or the week after. I'll be able to give you more information about the header and footer visiblity then.

Thanks and enjoy your weekends.

Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet?😰

There have been some issues with the save/publish work that are currently being addressed. We believe there is a couple more days of testing for this before we can move onto the header/footer work but fingers crossed we are nearly there :)
