Do you have a Sections feature planned for this – similar to Ultimate Blocks Sections facility?March 30, 2020 at 7:40 am #1219509DavidStaffCustomer Support
the Container Block:
For full width simply set the GP Page Builder container to Full WidthMarch 31, 2020 at 9:31 am #1221080Stevie
Thanks David. I’ll check this outApril 1, 2020 at 2:27 am #1221829DavidStaffCustomer SupportApril 2, 2020 at 3:21 am #1223154Stevie
Love the plugin.
Is there a way of overriding the site wide typography color settings for the headings
in a container section?
When I add a hyperlink to a Heading ( within the container block) , the typography colors switch to the site default colors ( in my case – dark colors)
As I’m using background images within the sections, ideally I would like to use a white text color
on headings too.April 2, 2020 at 4:56 am #1223251DavidStaffCustomer Support
Glad to hear that 🙂
Not yet – Defaults and Global Settings is something we are looking at for the future Pro version.
You can set Text / Link colors in the Container Block – these will cascade down and override any default theme colors of any blocks in the container.
In the Toolbar 3 dot ( kebab ) Menu you can create a Re-usable block. You can use this to create a template that you can import each time you need that layout and then simply convert it to a standard block.April 2, 2020 at 5:41 am #1223286Stevie
On the plus side it is very user friendly – more so than Ultimate blocks.
And glad to see the reusable function also included.
A few points:
1.I note the absence of typography settings for either headings or text within container.
2. The Button feature to be honest seems a bit clunky too. I can’t center either the GB button or the default button, at least I can’t find the options.
I’ve added a generateblocks container below ones created with Ultimate blocks to give you an idea.
You’re almost there !
When you say pro version? Will this be a premium plugin or a free plugin, or is it
to be included in GP premium?
When do you see it being rolled out?April 2, 2020 at 5:59 am #1223298DavidStaffCustomer Support
Thanks for feeding back:
1. Use the Headline Block – this is a GB block that has all the typography and color controls you could need.
2. the GB Buttons Block has alignment options. Including centre align. Be careful – the block adds a Button Container around the buttons.
Pro version will be a premium plugin – it will add more convenience to the existing free plugin.
We’ll be focusing on Pro after the Free version is released and GP Premium 1.11 is released.April 2, 2020 at 7:15 am #1223394Stevie
Sorted. Thanks. Looks sweet now. I especially like the Grid block.
It has loads of fun little options.
Will the GBlocks free version and GP Premium 1.11 be released soon?
I was hoping to do my big switch in next couple of days.April 2, 2020 at 7:19 am #1223402DavidStaffCustomer SupportApril 2, 2020 at 7:22 am #1223405Stevie
that’s grand. Many thanks for your help today David.
The support here is amazing.April 2, 2020 at 7:26 am #1223411DavidStaffCustomer SupportApril 2, 2020 at 7:49 am #1223638Stevie
Thought I was done, but more questions. Sorry.
How do I convert reusable to a standard block?
I created a reusable as suggested but encountering a few issues.
I added the reusable block to test page, made some changes, and the original was changed too.
They’re also – well -stuck together.
I intend to create quite a few sections so what is the best procedure?April 2, 2020 at 4:27 pm #1224224TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
The block options (three little dots in the block toolbar) will have a “Convert to Regular Block” option if it’s a re-usable block.
Re-usable blocks will change site-wide if one is changed.
Let us know if you need more info 🙂April 3, 2020 at 7:21 am #1224864Stevie
Thanks Tom, found it.
Basically I had hoped to create a ‘page section template’. So I could use it as a starting place to create new page containers.
I had a couple of points.
1. Can I only save one container section template?
2. Button text aligns to left.
3. The padding doesn’t seem to work. I see default at 40 for desktop but
doesn’t show. Below example has four sections by Ultimate blocks followed by made
