Directual web-pages builder supports subpages (second level, third, etc., no limits). That feature is great when you deal with a list of objects and each object should have a sophisticated view (e.g. with forms or tables on it). Now you can arrange a Cards component, or a Table and pick “open object on a subpage”.
The new component Link button allows you to navigate between pages and subpages. You can simply “go back” or “go to next object”, where the ID of the next object is taken from your API-endpoint.
Just have a look at how it works in this new app from the showcase.

HTML and Markdown components become really powerful as soon as you can leverage displaying real data in them. You can connect an endpoint and configure HTML or Markdown enriched with your real data. Moreover, you can use advanced features of the Directual templating engine like dealing with arrays of objects or conditional content rendering.
Form component has always been a powerful tool for data collecting. Now you can apply it for displaying the data — add the fields available for reading only. That is an essential feature for using Forms on subpages!
Have a look at the read-only Form here.

You may pick the colouring scheme for your app from the default list, or set it up as you like. Moreover, the colouring scheme may be exported or imported as a JSON-data.
You can now place your main menu on the top or on the left side of the app. Find that setting in portal settings.
Page access&security settings now include new options: displaying for not-authorised users only and hiding the page from the main menu.
Sections in the page layout now could be hidden for some users —from authorised or not-authorised, or from those who don't have a certain role. Also, you can set up margins and max-width of each section.
You may choose one of the six languages for your Directual-based app:

The Directual web-page builder now supports subpages and parameters. This means you can now create second-level, third-level, and beyond subpages with no limits! Plus, they've added a new Link button component that allows you to easily navigate between pages and subpages. And if that's not enough, they've even added the ability to use data in HTML/Markdown web-components, so you can display real data in your web pages and take advantage of advanced templating engine features.
A ton of new layout and design options, including custom color schemes that you can import or export as JSON data. Plus, you can now choose whether to place your main menu on the top or left side of the app. And if you need to customize your page's visibility settings or layout, you can do that too. There is also the ability to set up margins and max-width for each section, as well as the option to hide sections from authorized or non-authorized users.
Directual supports six languages for apps, including English, German, Spanish, French, Russian, and Japanese.
