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.
|Custom 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 custom blocks from the Home page.
|Custom 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.
|Custom blocks background color
|The background color to use for the custom blocks section.
|Custom blocks heading
|The optional heading text to display above the custom blocks.
|Custom block number
|The number of custom blocks to display (between 1 and 4).
|Custom block columns
|The number of columns to display the blocks in (between 1 and 4).
|Custom block alignment
|The alignment of each custom block (left or center).
|Custom block image height
|The height of each custom block image. If the setting is blank, images will not be displayed.
You can then configure the following properties for each custom block:
|The title of the custom block.
|The description of the custom block.
|The URL of the custom block that users will sent to.
|The image of the custom block.
The images for each of the 4 supported custom blocks are configured in the Images setting group, whereas the other settings are in the Custom blocks setting group.
Each theme comes with a number of built-in custom block patterns that you can choose from using the Custom blocks style theme setting, but you can add additional custom block styles to your theme by:
Editing the micro-template of your chosen custom block style on the
Copying a custom block style across from another theme if you purchased our Complete Package.
Copying a custom block style from our Pattern Library.
All custom block micro-templates build upon the same set of theme settings but can differ significantly in terms of their look-and-feel and behavior. You can also add more than 4 custom blocks to the theme, if desired, with some simple template changes.
Custom blocks are built to be customized, so the only limit is your imagination.
