    Is it possible to hire you to make changes to how boldgrid page editor works? Like if I needed to hide every block type except “block library”, is that something you could do or is that something that can be done, but I’d need to hire someone else to do it? Curious how things like that work with your software.

    Hi @chenz2, thanks for your question! We don’t offer any paid services at this time, but I can reach out to the developers to find out if there’s a way to do what you want, and if not, to at least get some ideas from there.

    I needed to hide every block type except “block library”

    To confirm, when a user is trying to add blocks, that’s when you want to limit what they see?

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the quick reply! Basically I want to white label your builder with my own creations in the block manager (ONLY my creations). I have no way to do this though and I am stuck with my clients seeing all the blocks your company created too. Can I hire someone to edit this functionality? I think you have a great page builder but the designs leave a lot to be desired unfortunately, so I’d like to just show my own in there instead. Can you let me know what can be done or who I can talk to about this?

    Thanks!

    Hello @chenz2,

    I’ve created a plugin for you which hides the other block categories and selections while adding new blocks. It uses css to hide the other options, and some javascript to change the initial type.

    You can view the code here: https://github.com/BoldGrid/ppb-library-block-only/blob/master/ppb-library-block-only.php

    And here is the plugin zip: https://github.com/BoldGrid/ppb-library-block-only/archive/master.zip

    The drawback to this approach is that when opening the blocks screen, no blocks are visible until the user changes the selected block type. Hope it helps!

    Thanks,
    Rafael

    Thanks so much! This will work just fine even if they have to select a dropdown first to see them. Is there a way to put a note in that empty white area to tell people that they have to do that to see the blocks I made?

    Also, do you know why when you add a new section, whether in the editor itself or in the block popup, it always goes to top? No one builds sites from bottom to top and it’s really frustrating to have to keep moving each section down to the bottom when you add one. Is this something that can be changed?

    I want to get a license to use this on all my sites (the white label version) but before I do, I want to make sure I can make it as easy as possible to use. So that’s why I ask this.

    Really appreciate your help! Mike

    Hello @chenz2,

    I updated the code for that plugin to include an area to direct users to the drop down to get started.

    Blocks are added to the top of the page so that new users can easily find them. When the pages are long we found that users were confused if they were added to the bottom of the page. I understand how that is undesirable for more experienced users. This behavior is not currently customizable. I will submit a request to allow control of this behavior as a Setting, so that you can choose the behavior.

    Thanks,
    Rafael

    Thanks! I’ll give it a test.

    Are you guys not able to make it so that when you insert a new block, it goes to the bottom and it also brings that portion of the page into view, much like a ‘go to top’ button would in a page? It’s so frustrating to build a page and have to keep going to the top to get new blocks and drag them down. Or if i want to insert a new layout column, it always goes to top too.

    I’m wondering if maybe at the least, when you choose a layout column, that can go wherever the cursor is in the editor instead of default to top? Or yeah, maybe a setting somewhere where people can choose the default action.

    Thanks for considering this! Just trying to wrap up all the loose ends before I make the purchase.

    Hello @chenz2,

    Here’s the issue I created for this request: https://github.com/BoldGrid/post-and-page-builder/issues/132

    Scrolling after the user inserts is a good suggestion. We’ve experimented with several different approaches in the past including inserting with autoscrolling or inserting at the user’s cursor position. We’ll need to go through the use cases and do some thorough testing before we can settle on a solution. However, we should be able to implement the feature as you suggested.

    Thanks,
    Rafael

    I really dislike Gutenberg so I’m hoping something like this can be done because I’d rather use your builder over theirs. I love that yours integrates into the existing classic editor that has all the functionality I need.

    I think the cursor option would probably make most sense to the most people. That way I get to choose where these things go rather than it defaulting to the bottom (or top) always. This is in regards to when using the wysiwyg editor (When clicking on the BLOCKS button that opens up that special blocks screen, just having those block designs insert at the bottom instead of top is fine, as long as it scrolls to that section on the left where it shows the preview.)

    I’d be happy to test out anything you try! I love stuff like this.
