What Is GenerateBlocks?
GenerateBlocks is a plugin developed to work seamlessly with Gutenberg Block Editor as well as, WordPress. With these 4 GenerateBlocks, you can easily integrate with Block Editor, for the purpose of designing a layout for any website. Not to mention, this plugin is light and will not weigh down your website. Obviously, no bloating!
GenerateBlocks were created to work with any theme, but it works extremely well with Tom’s GeneratePress Theme. With this in mind, GenerateBlocks may be the answer to replace heavy bloating page builders.
The Benefit of GenerateBlocks
Consequently, with the free version of GenerateBlocks, you can use the containers and the grids. At the same time, you can integrate them with the blocks in the block editor.
