# Uikit Assets (optional)

Starting from Extra add-ons 1.1.7, we created an Uikit assets plugin for Joomla, if your templates don't support Uikit 3 framework, you can install this plugin and use our Extra add-ons with Sp Pagebuilder 🙂

Download Extra Uikit Assets

This plugin load Ukit css/js libraries for WarpTheme Extra Add-Ons and all modules that require Uikit front-end framework. RTL Support automatically by default :). The plugin load Ukit css/js for pages built with SP Page Builder only so it does not affect your website performance!

Download the Extra Uikit Assets plugin plg_uikitassets.zip and install it by following the official Installing an extension instructions.

List WarpTheme templates already included Uikit 3 Framework: Tixo II, Factory II, Minima II, Blank II, BusinessX, Cleaner, Bold, Edu II, Mida II, Construction II, Rachel II, Nitro II, Finadvisor II, Enterprise II, Nova II, MMA, Fixnox, Lemo, Alisa, Trendi, Vhost, Mini.
If you are using one of these templates, you don't need to install the Uikit Assets plugin for Extra Add-ons.

Custom Add-ons Package

The plugin file contains 50+ extra addons, the compiled CSS and JavaScript files. You can create your custom add-ons installation package and remove unused add-ons to improve the performance while working in SP Page builder editing mode.

Unzip the plg_sppagebuilder_extra.zip package then navigate to addons folder, here you can see all extra add-ons, you can remove any addon that you not plan to use, e.g: uialert, uitext, uivideo, uitoogle, uitotop, uisvg and so on.

Next, zip the package then install it via Joomla Extension Manager.

Note: You can remove/delete existing addons at joomla-root/plugins/sppagebuilder/extra/addons

Override Output

Add, override or extend anything without the risk of losing your customizations when updating the plugin.

If you want to override the default looks and feel for any addon, you can override the output for the add-on using override method. Navigate to joomla-root/plugins/sppagebuilder/extra/addons then copy the add-on you wish to change, e.g uicard

Next place the addon to joomla/templates/template_name/sppagebuilder/addons/

Create a new sppagebuilder folder and addons folders inside your template folder if it does not exist

Performance Editing (Pro only)

If you use SP Page Builder Pro and face the issue with the response time (slowly) when editing add-ons content (back-end), the solution is that remove any extra add-ons that you aren't planning to use to improved speed when editing content or working with add-ons in editing mode. See our custom add-ons package section above to learn more.

Problem: With large numbers of add-ons, SP pro add-ons and Extra add-ons (Over 100+), it takes time to load add-ons list on the back-end panel.
