They come in a variety of shapes and sizes and, like everything else in our themes, can be easily customized to your specific requirements.
Each theme has a slightly different set of custom block styles, but they’re all built upon the same set of configurable properties.
|Content blocks style
|The block style to use, which can be one that’s built-in or copied from our Pattern Library. Selecting “None” will hide the content blocks from the Home page.
|Content blocks color
|The color palette to use, which reference colors defined in your theme. Each block style uses color palettes a little differently and you can use any color you like by modifying the custom micro-template.
|Content blocks background color
|The background color to use for the content blocks section.
|Content blocks heading
|The optional heading text to display above the content blocks.
|Content block number
|The number of content blocks to display (between 1 and 4).
|Content block columns
|The number of columns to display the blocks in (between 1 and 4).
|Content block alignment
|The alignment of each content block (left or center).
|Content block image height
|The height of each content block image. If the setting is blank, images will not be displayed.
You can then configure the following properties for each content block:
|The image of the content block.
The images for each of the 8 supported content blocks are configured in the Images setting group, whereas the other settings are in the Content blocks setting group. If you have more than 8 categories or sections to display you can add additional icons.
Each theme comes with a number of built-in custom block patterns that you can choose from using the Content blocks style theme setting, but you can add additional content block styles to your theme by:
Editing the micro-template of your chosen content block style.
Copying a content block style across from another theme if you purchased our Complete Package.
Copying a content block style from our Pattern Library.
All content block micro-templates build upon the same set of theme settings but can differ significantly in terms of their look-and-feel and behavior. Content blocks are built to be customized, so the only limit is your imagination.
