Support » Plugin: Gutenberg Blocks by Kadence Blocks – Page Builder Features » Many best-in-class blocks but two annoying quirks

  • I’ve been all-Gutenberg all the time since the beginning of 2019, and I’ve tried a lot of block libraries. There are several Kadence blocks that continue to be better than the rest and better than the equivalent core blocks. A few favorites:

    • Row Layout, because it’s possible to set margin, padding, and max content width in multiple units and you can do gradient overlays.
    • Accordion, because you can control the tags for the headings and put any kind of blocks within the accordion. Great for things like FAQ and long job descriptions
    • Advanced Button, because I like to be able to set the hover/focus color as well as the background color, and having the option to add icons is nice
    • Advanced Heading, because it’s still not possible to control font size in core headings

    There are two things that prevent me from giving the plugin a 5-star review:

    • There’s no way to clear color settings if you decide you don’t want a background color or overlay after all
    • Colors are applied via inline styles instead of using the color classes. This is really annoying, because it means that CSS that works fine on core blocks is useless for customizing Kadence blocks. If a theme defines colors in the color palette, the plugin should pick those up and add the .has-colorslug-color or .has-colorslug-background-color classes.

  • Hey,
    Thanks for your feedback! I am going to fix those two things on your list 🙂 I’ll push an update out soon.

    I will do a happy dance then, because it will make the plugin pretty much perfect.

    I’ve been working on todays update and you wrote:

    Is there a specific block where you were not seeing the clear icon next to the color picker?
