Blocksy & Crocoblock: Building Dynamic Websites

Following the latest Toolset and Blocksy integration, we couldn’t help but announce another one. This time, Blocksy partnered with Crocoblock, allowing website developers to build dynamic websites more fluently.

Blocksy is now able to detect the Crocoblock-added custom post types and provides options for their further customization:

  • Change the page/post tiles and archive cards’ appearance from Customizer;
  • Assign custom meta fields in the Post Meta section and output them on the frontend;
  • Adjust every tiny nuance in terms of page layouts.

Indeed, let’s know what Crocoblock collaboration can bring you.

What exactly does this collaboration mean for you?

  • Personalized settings. Our theme allows the Crocoblock developers to control the way their projects look. There are many custom stylization options one can apply to a single post page.
  • WooCommerce compatibility. JetEngine allows creating a CPT dubbed Product whose attributes can be further displayed using our dynamic blocks.
  • Featured image display. Thanks to the Dynamic Image block, it is possible to output a featured image for JetEngine-built CPT, category, or taxonomy.
  • Repeater blocks display. JetEngine repeaters for taxonomies and CPTs blend nicely with our lightweight theme, preserving the listing’s structure.

Blocksy and Crocoblock – a perfect fit

It’s time to find out what makes Crocoblock helpful for Blocksy clients.

Crocoblock is a toolkit that lets you create highly customizable WordPress websites using Elementor or Gutenberg. You can create everything you want, be it a blog, corporate website, landing page, WooCommerce shop, or WordPress directory website. However, the driving power behind Crocoblock is JetEngine, a dynamic content plugin. It allows you to create and configure:

  • Custom Post Types and Custom Content Types;
  • custom fields, meta boxes, taxonomies, relations between posts, and options pages;
  • Dynamic Listings showcasing posts, products, reviews, etc.;
  • frontend forms and User Profile pages;
  • personalized Data Stores and Glossaries;
  • custom queries and REST API connections.

We are proud to announce that JetEngine is now compatible with the Post Types Extra extension. It means that it’s possible to add JetEngine custom fields to the CPT’s archive and page/post title layers. Learn more about this cool feature from the video below:
