I share your vision but did not try blocksy yet.
It looks like all of their templates are free, that is uncommon as many times, builders will release a bunch as Premium only.
I don’t know if their number of starter sites is sufficient though, for me to install yet another theme when FSE and Cwicly seems more than enough if Cwicly’s community would create more template blocks.
If someone knows of designers on that mission to create Cwicly cool blocks including possibly ACF, please tell me as I am new here and wish to create a library if I find time to get on this project.
I have looked into Blocksy and their starter sites are good. I then saw Qubely and Spectra which too have a good collection of start sites. Did you try them?
Seems like you have a good experience in block editors (I am new to this - I was using WPBakery and then Elementor Pro). What do you think is the best blocks builder which can replace Elementor Pro for me including starter sites? And what’s the best blocks builder excluding starter sites?
Hi, I have created some blocks for Cwicly but for some unknown reason they have not been approved for the library and I can’t share them with others. The creators for community creation are here, but I can’t share the creation with everyone yet.
@Louis hello, is this something that is expected at the moment ?
Is there a link for me to study about this or expected release of template blocks from community ? Right now I can only see a dozen of blocks from the community which is very small amount (I understand this feature is new).
Sorry if this has already been posted elsewhere.
I think this one is missing in Gutenberg / FSE itself. They do have “blocks” and “Patterns”, and of course the traditional “WordPress theme” but with FSE and global styles a theme, in the traditional way, is obsolete.
A new style of theme would be a combination of the other Gutenberg and FSE elements. See these issues:
NOTE: I’m now not a custom dev, priority for me are well-designed starter-sites that work, are lightweight and come with a reliable platform, gutenberg, et al.
Price differences - if your &/or client time is of value to you, should not be a consideration (all the quality Theme-library options are pretty close in price anyway, I’ve never considered paying for 1-off themes).
I have no idea re: the best, but Blocksy, with it’s plugin and integration with Stackable def gets the job done (tho I think stackable is overrated).
Yet note that my priority is building from an existing starter site, and not doing custom dev.
I too am exploring different options, and I think there are def better options than Stackable for custom dev (I.e. GenerateBlocks & GeneratePress - but that’s better for custom dev, and while their support and team are the best in the biz IMHO [and cannot overstate how valuable this is] I am no longer a designer/dev, do not love their designs and don’t want to build from scratch [I’ve actually got into extended debates with them about prioritising/changing designs, how the existing aren’t great - tho they ARE well-built, light and clean, yet design is not their wheelhouse and cannot see it changing]).
I’ve had way too many problems with Astra/Spectra/“Starter Templates”, have tested Pro in detail a couple of years ago, ended up getting refund, and just thought I’d check out again a week ago. They are a big company now with a mature stack and there still exist fundamental problems! They do not deserve the high reviews they get IMHO, and the designs are generic template gallery fare.
Also Spectra is NOT compatible with Blocksy-theme
I’ve had no related issues with Blocksy and their support is solid (tho not at GP levels).
