We just pushed six new pre-built product templates and configuration improvements for the Easy Content Builder. You now have more page variations and content blocks when building a product detail page on Shopify.
After months of hard work, we are excited to release Easy Content Builder (V2) with a complete overhaul of the code base, UI, new features, and improvements.
Let's take a closer look at what's new in the Easy Content Builder (V2).
Overhaul the whole code base
Our team did go the extra mile and re-wrote the whole Easy Content Builder's code base to optimize the app further and made sure our new UI blends in nicely.
Easy Content Builder now allows you to add custom data and content by using metaobjects as a dynamic source. Metaobjects help you define and create custom structured, reusable data to enrich your Shopify pages that standard features can't match - such as size charts, product FAQs, ingredient lists, collection banners, recipes, specifications, etc.
Currently, the Easy Content Builder app helps you create and connect metaobjects to your Shopify online store through dynamic sources for 3 types of content:
- Icons with text
- Tabs - coming soon
- Accordions - coming soon
