Introducing: New No-Code CSS Editor

We’re delighted to announce a significant improvement to our widgets: the transition from the traditional CSS customization system to a new, user-friendly No-Code CSS Editor. 

This upgrade is designed to make customization a breeze, even for those with no coding background. With its intuitive interface, you can now easily tweak color schemes, adjust element sizes, and reposition components without dealing with complex codes. 

It’s a step towards making technology more accessible, empowering you to transform your creative ideas into reality, effortlessly. 

Introducing: New CSS Snippets

In addition to the new no-code CSS editor, we’ve also added another enhancement to our widgets — the “CSS Snippets” option! 

This powerful feature is geared toward making widget customization a breeze. With our CSS snippets, you can now quickly add pre-designed, reusable pieces of CSS code directly into your widget setup, saving you precious time and effort. 

Whether you’re a novice or a seasoned coder, this new tool is a game-changer. It not only streamlines the styling process but also allows you to maintain consistency across your widgets with a few simple clicks.
