Adding custom blocks to your theme

In this post we explore how to add custom blocks to the Home page of your theme.

All of our themes now come with a set of configurable blocks for presenting categories, sections, custom links and contact options. This post was originally concerned with how to add custom blocks to your Zendesk theme, but it’s no longer necessary to modify the theme’s code in order take advantage of this powerful functionality.

You can learn more about custom blocks, content blocks and contact blocks, as well as other Home page elements like notifications and the call-to-action section, in our documentation.
