Welcome to Stackable

One of the biggest changes to WordPress is the introduction of Gutenberg or the new WordPress editor for a fresh publishing experience. This new editor takes the page building experience to a new level by using a more visual approach – featuring a clean and simple layout and using a new system to simplify the building process with the introduction of “blocks”.

What is Stackable and What Does It Have to Offer?

Stackable is a plugin that works to supplement and supercharge the new WordPress Editor. It adds essential blocks to Gutenberg’s arsenal and gives you an even easier design experience. It is the ultimate Gutenberg add-on with a growing number of kick-ass blocks and allows you to present messages and start an action with ease.

With modern designs, Stackable blocks are highly versatile and are meant to be usable in all kinds of webpages – be it business sites, personal blogs, portfolios and more. We also give you the freedom to customize the designs to fit your own vision.

Our intuitive and user-friendly interface allows you to showcase your content and beautifully design webpages without needing to learn a line of code. Ease-of-use is our specialty and we built Stackable to make sure that building your dream site would be a sweat-free and enjoyable experience.

To complete our package, we also built the Stackable theme – specially made for Gutenberg – that you can use to jump start your page building journey with the new WordPress editor.

How Did It All Start?

As early as the release of the new WordPress editor as a beta plugin, it became apparent that Gutenberg would be the future of page building. With our experience in creating and enhancing page building tools, our team, GΛMBIT, wanted to help and contribute in making the most out of this change in the page building game.

Stackable started out as one of Gambit team’s side projects. We initially developed some blocks that we thought would enhance the capabilities of the new WordPress editor. Our initial release included basic blocks like header, call to action, testimonials and pricing box.

Given the warm reception from users and the growing importance and popularity of Gutenberg, we’ve put some serious effort in making Stackable the all-in-one companion for the new WordPress editor. What was once a side project became a full fledged product. So far, we’ve designed and developed more than 20 blocks that you can enjoy absolutely for free!

Our Next Steps

We’re not yet done making things better for you. We’re currently cooking up something big to make Stackable even more useful and handy – more blocks, professional design and customization options, animations and other interesting effects are all coming your way soon so make sure that you stay tuned.

  1. Hi
    Interesting to hear.
    Does this mean that u see the future of WP page builders as “if they cant add to Gutemberg, they cant add at all….” In other words; your own PBS and the coming Fr….y – will be obsolete (and a lot of others as well) ?
    I use PBS and am very fond of it, but waiting (invane ?) for Fr….y ?
    So if yes to above – have u in wpstackable, continued the “goodies” from PBS (speed, min. impact on existing site, min. dB calls, ease of functionality..) ???
    And should I abandon the 2 others and go solely for your new “baby” 🙂

    (just ran at test of a 3 diff. installs: 1. default WP site w/ GP premium, 2. the former + PBS, 3. the former, no PBS but + Elementor – and hurraa; PBS was almost as fast as the default installation, and with only a fraction more calls)

    Hi From Claus, Denmark

    1. Hi Claus,

      Can’t say with certainty how page builders will be in the future. However, Page Builder Sandwich will still work with WordPress 5. You don’t have to re-build your site.

  2. Hi. Some of your blocks are not working properly. The button block extends too far to the right (and so goes out of the box of the other blocks, and in the block settings I set it to be in the middle). Block the harmonic correctly, each block that I put under that block loses its functionality (if I put a button below your acording block, then unplug the click url button).

  3. I have subscribed but did not receive the stackable theme by email. Could you please send it to me? Love the stackable plugin. It has replaced 7 old plugins and helped speed up our website significantly. Great job and thanks for developing it. I would like to test the theme also.

  4. Thanks for this great plugin. It works fine with gutenberg editor. Could you please tell me how I can make some customization? I want to change some options for some specific requirements in one of our wordpress site. Please do let me know how can I do that.

    Thanks in advance

  5. Hi, I put some blocks in a container, but how do I stack them horizontally? Three in a row on widescreen, three under each other on mobile?
    Hope you can help me.

    1. You cannot stack blocks horizontally, as of the moment this can only be done in the Block Editor by using the built-in Columns block.

      The way we address this though is to provide blocks that can span multiple columns, and each block has their own mechanism for collapsing in smaller screens.

  6. Every time I exit the page editor I get “this block contains unexpected or invalid block” when reopen the editor, on all your blocks only, converting to HTML or to Block results only in blanck elements in the front-end.

  7. Hi there. I just found this while searching for one-column WordPress theme (featured). This looks super simple and easy to use. I’m wondering if this could replace Elementor, which is what I currently use. They also have some cool blocks, but I’m looking for something light-weight and not as code heavy (specifically for search engine optimization). Do you have any thoughts on how this theme and stackable blocks perform from an SEO perspective? Do you think I can use this instead of Elementor? Thank you and great work on this! 🙂

    1. Hi William,

      Stackable should work across any theme. For best results, make sure that the theme you are using is Gutenberg-ready.

      We don’t have any video tutorials though 🙂

  8. Please tell me about the upgrade option. What do I get for upgrading from free? One problem I already have: I don’t find an option to create a full width banner like in your example section.

  9. What theme do you recommend using your plugin with? I am looking at GeneratePress or Twenty Seventeen.

    I want to put up a serious of full width background image blocks, but I couldn’t seem to get that to work. It seemed like there was some additional constraint around the container. Is there a general wordpress setting I need to remove to allow full width images?

    1. Hi Jason,

      GeneratePress and Twenty Seventeen should work with Stackable. For best results, make sure that any theme you use is Gutenberg-ready.

      About the constraint with containers, the block editor leaves the implementation of full-width with the theme. It’s possible that there’s a setting with the theme that needs to be changed – such as a page template.

  10. Hey, Benjamin,
    I love the plugin and it just keeps getting better. I would love to download the theme as well. How about a link?
