Version 1.8 brought you the Container block and the Accordion block – two of the most-used blocks in the amazing Stackable block collection.
The Container Block is a very versatile block that you can use to create lots of different layouts. You can create headers, call to action areas, and many more.
You can place different blocks inside a container block and then you can customize the blocks’ location and background.
A typical example would be to create a header area by adding in a title, a button, then setting the container to be full-height and full-width.
Container blocks also have the ability to restrict the content to only half of the block, allowing you to create more elaborate layouts. You can align the contents to the left side, centered or on the right side. There’s also an option to vertically align the contents.
The text color of the blocks inside the container can also be overridden in order to add backgrounds to blocks which normally don’t support one. For example, we’ve used a blog posts block inside a container and changed the text colors to white.
There are so many possibilities with the Container block. The best part is it’s so easy to use, just drop in blocks in it, then pick your backgrounds. Here’s the list of features for the Container block:
Next we have the new Accordion block. It’s a title that when clicked, expands or collapses some information. It’s kinda like the Expand Block, except that this block is designed to be used for FAQs or for accordions, and this block animates!
Here’s An Accordion Block, Click Me
This content shows up when you click on the title above. You can use multiple Accordion blocks one after the other for FAQs or to display a large amount of text in a clean manner.
You can customize the title’s background color and text color to easily catch the attention of your visitors:
