    I know that it would be great if we could add some more components to the plugin. But as explained here https://wordpress.org/support/topic/jumbotron-2/ we would like to stick to the Bootstrap grid. We still don’t have enough time to implement and maintain further components.
    Sorry that I can’t give you a better answer. We’re of course always open to new contributors since this plugin is completely open source (see: https://github.com/liip/bootstrap-blocks-wordpress-plugin).

    Hello guys!

    Congratulations for your great work!

    I have the same request with @rdallas4pm as I would like to base my work in creating blocks for Metronic using your work.

    For example I would like to create an add-on to your plugin to host Metronic specific objects such as this:

    <div class="card shadow-sm">
        <div class="card-header">
            <h3 class="card-title">Title</h3>
            <div class="card-toolbar">
                <button type="button" class="btn btn-sm btn-light">
                    Action
                </button>
            </div>
        </div>
        <div class="card-body">
            Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text...
        </div>
        <div class="card-footer">
            Footer
        </div>
    </div>

    Since you do not have the time, but we do 🙂 can you suggest a suitable architecture so that our own custom modules will not get overwritten with the plugin’s updates? What is your take on that?

    I will be more than happy to share the block I created in your effort.

    @dimitrisv this depends a little bit on how you would like to create this add-on. Did you think about forking the plugin repository and extending it? If yes I would recommend that you prefix your own blocks (eg. wp-bootstrap-blocks/metronic-card). Like this if we ever create a card component it wouldn’t conflict with yours.
    Otherwise if you thought about creating standard Bootstrap blocks, there is of course always the possibility to contribute to the plugin here https://github.com/liip/bootstrap-blocks-wordpress-plugin/.
    Right now there is sadly no possibility to extend the plugin with your own blocks using a filter or something like this.

    Thank you for your response.

    Yes I will be happy to contribute to the main plugin, provided that will be free/open to anyone 🙂

    It will be great if you first create a common library for the colour options/statuses (see my previous response) so that thereafter any new block will be adding will inherit this from the plugin’s options.

    I understand that this is a major re-engineering, but it is well worth your time, it will save us tons of time in the future.
