Love the Gutenberg editor but want to go beyond the basics? Getwid might just be the plugin you need to enhance the WordPress editor experience and create unique designs.
Created by MotoPress (the company famous for its WordPress hotel booking plugin), Getwid is a Gutenberg blocks plugin that offers a set of unique blocks that you won’t find in the default editor’s library.
Some of them are post-related, while others are for things like testimonials, icon boxes, and button groups. The customization features of these blocks are super simple yet highly flexible.
But is Getwid the right choice for your website? Does it give you enough control over your site’s content?
In this blog post, we’re going to take a detailed look into what Getwid – Gutenberg Blocks offers, what you should expect, and how it can increase your website’s appeal.
Getwid is built to help WordPress site owners create dynamic content pages using the Gutenberg editor.
This plugin includes 40+ blocks that you can use in your pages and 35+ templates that you can customize to suit your preferences.
Some of the most notable blocks include:
- Post carousel – display posts and pages in a stunning carousel with a custom layout.
- Banner – create banners featuring a background image and text.
- Section – create custom page layout sections that feature other blocks. The plugin lets you set alignments, change foregrounds, use animation, etc.
- Image hotspot – insert hotspots to images that display a tooltip when a visitor hovers or clicks on them. This one is unique in that it has no analogues among blocks.
- Content timeline – display custom content in a stylish timeline.
You can use Getwid to add pricing tables, testimonials, post lists, and button groups to your pages, among other things. MotoPress has a full list and description of all its new blocks here. 35+ section templates are also available, with many of them containing new blocks like the Section block.
