FAQ

Will Blockons work with my theme?

Blockons should work with ALL themes! But as themes and plugins add their own CSS or Javascript which might affect any plugin from working perfectly… We’re here to help… Let us know if something doesn’t work and we’ll help you fix it.

Where are the Blockons settings?

The Blockons manager settings and Site Add-Ons are found in the WordPress Dashboard under Dashboard -> Settings -> Blockons Settings.

Blocks Settings – As you add each block you will be able to edit the block live within the WordPress editor. Some of the settings also have help links or hints on how to use them.

I don’t see the WooCommerce blocks?

For the WooCommerce blocks (Account Icon, Featured Products & Mini Cart) you need to have the WooCommerce plugin activated.

Will Blockons work with other block plugins?

We’ve tested with lots of different gutenberg blocks plugins like CoBlocks, Ultimate Blocks, Spectra, GenerateBlocks, Otter page builder blocks & Gutenverse gutenberg blocks to name a few… Blockons should not affect or be affected by other blocks plugins or page builders.

I don’t see the same amount of blocks?

When we add new blocks, by default they are turned off… This is encase you’ve manually turned blocks off for site speed and loading.

We don’t want to auto-turn them on, so you’ll need to go to Dashboard -> Settings -> Blockons Settings -> Blocks and turn on the new blocks that you want to use.

You should receive a ‘We’ve added new blocks’ notice (which is dismissable) when we add new blocks.

This block contains unexpected or invalid content

This is most likely from a latest update adding new settings to the block, and so WordPress displays this warning because the blocks editor version looks slightly different to the saved frontend version of the block.

Clicking “Attempt Block Recovery” should fix the block.

I found a bug… What do I do?

Please contact us so we can post a fix and get it working for you.

Something doesn’t look right or is slightly out in the design?

This could be from the theme you’re using, or another plugin. Again, please contact us so we can post a fix or give you custom CSS to fix it.
