Uberflip has created Front End V2 to help customers meet web accessibility requirements. The new version supports all the functionality you know and love with Uberflip (CTAs, Uberflip Site Engager, recommendation panel, and more). As well, our team used the opportunity to make a number of under-the-hood improvements that will increase performance and enhance the user experience overall.
Key benefits of Front End V2
- Accessible: Meets WCAG 2.0 Level AAA accessibility requirements out of the box
- Faster: Significantly improved page speeds and performance
- Better SEO: Implements modern SEO best practices to help pages rank higher in search engine results
- Easier to customize: Simplified coding structure for more user-friendly customization
Performance of Front End V2
We ran a Google Chrome audit of the new Front End V2 and the results speak for themselves!
Moving to Front End V2
Any Uberflip customer with an existing Front End V1 hub can choose to transition it to a Front End V2 hub to take advantage of the improvements. In addition, if you are legally required to make your web properties accessible, you can make your Uberflip hubs compliant by moving them to Front End V2.
Uberflip offers two options to accomplish this.
Option 1: Let Uberflip take care of everything
We have the technical skills and human resources to help you move to Front End V2. This paid solution includes one-on-one consultation, project scoping, design, review, quality assurance, and delivery.
We recommend this option for customers who don’t have access to web development resources and want to take a hands-off approach.
Option 2 - DIY
We’ve prepared a handbook to help your team understand the Uberflip Hub Front End, how to customize it, and the steps involved in moving to Front End V2.
Hub Front End V2 is very different from its predecessor, so a simple one-to-one migration is not possible. It requires rewriting all styles and customizations according to the new framework. This means that the transition is not an immediate or "one-click" process. We recommend planning and resourcing this accordingly.
Here are a few things to keep in mind with the DIY option:
Skill level required
Prior experience developing website front ends
Strong understanding of HTML and CSS
Choosing the DIY option will limit our ability to support you
We will not be able to troubleshoot your code because it won’t be accessible to us. Our awesome support team can only do so much!
To explore which option is right for you, please speak with your Uberflip CSM.
