It gets the job done, but in my opinion it’s not ideal, and it’s not intuitive. If you choose to use this, you need to spend a lot more time familiarizing yourself with documentation than something like Elementor. When clicking around in the builder, there are a lot of clicks that you’re unsure as to what you’re doing. Sometimes you’re using on the column, sometimes the entire block, but it’s unclear what click leads to which selection.

I was looking for something that will allow me to insert creative page dividers…there’s plenty out there, but the simplicity of this plugin force me to have a closer look. After playing around with the dividers (worked fantastically) I started using the other blocks: layouts, icons, hero…and seriously, withing a couple of hours (mostly me tweaking) I have something that looks great. The blocks’ options are very well layed out and organized. This means that the properties you tweak on one block are very similar to the other block, so learning curve is not steep at all. I don’t like Page Builders at all, this is the closest I will get to one. Give it a shot, I really think it’s a superb product!

I’ve tried many, maybe all, Gutenberg Blocks plugins, but I find this very useful and well done. Try it yourself. Very useful! Congratulations.

I appreciate the cutting-edgeness of this plugin. CSS grids? I almost couldn’t believe my eyes. the balls! It’s such a nice alternative for all the other “page builders” out there, trying to take care of each single medieval browser, while bloating like a flipping exploding red giant from all the patches and scripts and elements and they throw in there meanwhile absolutely positioning everything with nails and glue to … sorry I’m rambling. Great plugin!
