Stackable is a newly released WordPress plugin by Gambit Technologies Inc with the ambition to improve the already powerful Gutenberg Editor. But, the question is, does it improve it?
Let’s find out.
What is Stackable?
Stackable is a WordPress plugin that adds a beautiful collection of ready-to-use blocks for the Gutenberg Editor.
What does this mean? Well, if you know Gutenberg Editor, you should know that the editor makes use of blocks to add contents. For example, if you want to add an image, then, you will need to make use of the Image Block and if you want to add a text paragraph, then, you will need to make use of the Paragraph Block. And it goes on.
Stackable adds more blocks on top of the already existing blocks in Gutenberg.
Is it a good thing? Of course it is.
What type of blocks does it add?
Installing and activating Stackable to your WordPress website will immediately give you access to 23 blocks. All the 23 blocks are free to use.
The following are the list of blocks it adds:
- Container Block
- Posts Block
- Feature Grid Block
- Accordion Block
- Image Box Block
- Feature Block
- Icon List Block
- Call to Action Block
- Card Block
- Header Block
- Count Up Block
- Video Popup Block
- Pricing Box Block
- Testimonial Block
- Team Members Block
- Notification Block
- Number Box Block
- Expand / Show More Block
- Button Block
- Blockquote Block
- Divider Block
- Spacer Block
- Separator Block
Stackable certainly extends the use of Gutenberg Editor with the add-on blocks. These blocks not only helps create better contents, but it also helps improve the design of the contents.
What do I mean by help improve the design of the contents? Each and every block can be customized in terms of appearance to match the theme’s overall appearance. For example, if you use the Icon List Block, you can change the icon type, icon shape, icon color, icon size and so on.
And if you are not interested in using any of the 23 blocks, you can easily disable it from the plugin configuration area.
In short, I think that Stackable is a plugin that is worth having. It will come in handy for avid content creators and designers.
The plugin also comes with a premium version. The premium version adds more layouts to certain blocks. For example, the normal Feature Block only has two layout options; Basic and Plain.
The premium version adds more layouts; Basic, Plain, Half, Overlap, Overlap 2 and Overlap 3.
On top of that, it adds premium effects to certain blocks.
