I’m a first-year IT student and my university recently began a 6-month WordPress course. In this course, I’ve learnt about WordPress themes and plugins like MaxiBlocks, [redacted], [redacted], [redacted] and more. In the next few months, we need to create a website for a library as practice. We can pick any website builder we want to use for this project. I’ve checked out a bunch of WordPress builders and seen many how-to videos.

_I think MaxiBlocks tops them all. It’s super fast and adaptable. I tried MaxiBlocks for a week and I can say it’s better than other builders. …

WooW! I'm really impressed with the capabilities of this plugin…I know this category of plugins very well - I have probably tested all Gutenberg add-ons available on the market and I must admit that MaxiBlocks is really top shelf and top league!Just install the plugin to see the amazing possibilities of website personalization this plugin offers.Additionally, it is worth mentioning that the free version and the Pro version differ in the number of available templates and not in the number of functions - this is incredible! Big congratulations to the developer for his amazing work!This is truly a top plugin!

There are more tools that have templates or patterns or whatever you can call them. But the problem with them is that either they aren't styled nicely and it is cumbersome to change them to your exact wished. Maxi Blocks has a nicely designed Template library and you can easily style the templates by using one of the predefined style cards. And you can edit the style card like changing colours and fonts and then you can activate them accross all the templates on your page. I've just started playing with it. It seems extremely powerfull too. A small wish would be that the style cards would work cross site instead of on per page basis. You can however easily select a style card you set on another page though. I did a small test and it didn't really affect the pagespeed.

Whatever your needs are, this plugin will meet them. It's well-documented and supports plenty of features that make it an ideal choice for WordPress users. This plugin is an incredible find for those who are looking for something that offers a lot of options and is easy to use. It's a brilliant choice for beginners and experienced developers alike, and I highly recommend it. I was able to beta test it so I'm excited to see how people use it.
