Full Height Row
With Parallax background already available out of the box the next obvious step was introduction of full height row option allowing easily divide your WordPress site into logic structure and focus customer attention. Such behaviour makes full height row very demanding feature for Landing Pages and sites where business is seeking to grab user attention without giving any chance.

Taking into account high demand and many feature requests there is an easy to use control for adding YouTube video to any row background by simply copy/paste link to any YouTube video. Even better news is that you can combine this option with Parallax or Full Height options of WPBakery Page Builder.
Tabs, Tours, Accordions
With the higher expectations from our side and continues requests from our customers we came to conclusion that previous jQuery UI based tabs, tours and accordions are no longer able to satisfy the needs of top page builder in both – visual and technical side. Having this in our minds we began to work on a new complex element for complete rebuild of tabs, tours and accordions. The main goals was to offer our customers so necessary styling options backed up with technical features like hash navigation which allows introduction of direct linking.
Multiple tabs, tour and accordion styles aligns perfectly with other WPBakery Page Builder content elements to complete any WordPress theme and offers wide range of styling like icons, color schemas and so on. Such options like content part fill, gaps and spacing allows quickly create perfect element for your site.
Representation of data as charts can significantly improve UI/UX of your site by offering your customers alternative and visually appealing way of viewing complex data. Properly placed charts can drag attention to the information you want to communicate most and become important part of your site design.
With different types and data sets it is often crucial to have different chart types that suits best for this case. WPBakery Page Builder 4.6 offers 4 completely new JS based charts which allows representing data in doughnut, pie, line and bar styles. While you may want to use doughnut and pie charts for simple data – some other cases may require line and bar charts so you can choose from. And the very good news are that you can easily animate any type of charts.
