Blocs v4 - wish list

Thank you @Jannis for the explanation. :slight_smile:

Do you maybe know if the browser Google Fonts use cookies?
I’m really trying to avoid Google Fonts but ran into tricky questions… Adding LOCAL Fonts instead of browser Google Fonts - tricky questions: speed? SEO? different „historic versions“ of fonts problematic?

Is it enough to have just this notice as a cookie banner when using NO tracking cookies, but only functional cookies? :face_with_monocle:

Screenshot everything… also I wonder if the defendant in this case could have used the “Wayback Machine” to search for Unsplash around the time he downloaded the original image.

You can export to image from within the app - that gives a good full web page image that can be used for proofing. Alternatively, preview in Safari and then export to PDF. This latter option also allows you to create PDF output at different breakpoints.

One thing I’ve always missed, when I open and edit a class in the Class Editor, Blocs should let me use my created colors from the Global Swatches window.


@Ghost I agree 100%. It is a hassle having to copy hex codes inside custom classes on a regular basis.

@Flashman Yes, and what also would be great, you only would have to change the color once (in the Global Swatches window) if you want to try different colors for your project.

Yeah thats the hard part, Global swatches are old, from Blocs V1 and they are completely separate from the classes as they pre date them. Pushing changes made in the global swatches to classes would take a bit of work to make it function, and even more to make it work well (perfomance wise).

Maybe something for the future roadmap of Blocs v4 when it ships later this year :slight_smile:


Oow so excited, any idea when Norm? Just a hint, go on, you know you want too…


I just skimmed through the responses. Did I miss someone mentioning CSS Grid support as an alternative to Bootstrap? :grin: Or will Blocs remain Bootstrap only?

And if I may add one more… I’d love to see adding and editing custom stylesheets improved. Maybe some sort of built in editor, that let us create and edit a css file from within blocs? Needless to say, Bloc should be able to reflect the changes without the need to restart the app.

Ah well, I can dream, can I?

I wish for Blocs 4…:

  • The app to have more options like Photoshop, Ai , well…MUSE…hear me out… I understand that Muse’s code and workflow were a mess, but actually from the designer’s point of view it was pretty good. Really easy to use with tons of options like if were using PS or Ai or inDesign, very design oriented. I like Blocs because is much more robust and also is easy but I think it lacks of more options that can help designers to do beautiful websites without coding. Yes you can do nice looking websites but, IDK maybe there is some limitations with BS 4… is html5 better ? don’t know. What I know is that many times i design the website’s UI as I wanted but it’s not possible for a none coder to do it in a more DESIGN way…hope you know what I mean.

  • Also idk…adding more brics and blocs and cool stuff to make cool UIs that would be nice…

I guess in conclusion what I mean is that I wish Blocs to be more DESIGN oriented and add more options to make it more powerful…juust to named a sample: more fonts options…etc…

thanks :slight_smile:

The ability to create Mega Menus would be great as well. Currently have a time getting one setup on a client site in a ‘friendly’ non-coding way.

Mega menus are super simple to create. Just add a normal structure bloc under your navigation bloc. In my example illustrated below, I used a 4 column structure bloc. I then added my text links and added a background image (optional). I then made the bloc invisible with the visibility options on the appearance section of the right sidebar. You would then select one of your normal navigation links and set it to Toggle Visibility and then select the mega-menu bloc as the target. Here is what it looks like in normal mode:

When the Recipes link is clicked, the mega menu appears like so:

You can see it in action on the development site HERE


This is a pretty close way to get there.

Blocs 4 has a bunch of new features that let you create an even better mega menu experience.

Not much longer…


Uh … oh … sneak peek? Beta testing? :grin:

Perhaps you can be more specific?
