A Free Business Block Theme For WordPress – WP Tavern
WPZOOM is coming strong with its first block theme approved for the WordPress theme directory. UniBlock is a beautifully designed theme that works well for businesses and freelancers. The company also plans to adopt the concept of full site editing in other WPZOOM themes, after the release of UniBlock.
UniBlock’s default look sports a darker color scheme in the navigation and above the fold, with a lighter background for the rest of the website. The video on the sample homepage uses the free WPZOOM Video Popup Block plugin, which supports Vimeo and YouTube. It is a simple and lightweight block that allows users to customize play button and play icon.
After activating the theme, clicking ‘Customize’ will prompt the user to install the video plugin. It can also be converted to a custom HTML block or removed entirely at the user’s discretion.
UniBlock’s 19 custom block templates include everything you’d expect from a business theme, but even more impressively, it comes with five full page templates:
- cover page
Alternatively, users can assign the page template in post settings to achieve the same effect.
These full-page templates are handy for quick page creation. They make it possible to create a basic professional website in minutes. Here is an example of the Services full-page template that will instantly embed when selected. Users can remove any sections they don’t need, add more blocks and templates, and quickly fill in all their own information.
Separately, there are templates for a footer with text, links, multiple featured box arrangements with text and buttons, multiple designs for call-to-action sections, pricing tables, team members with social icons, testimonials, header cover, sidebar, 404 page, and more.
Users can further deepen template customization with Site Editor, as UniBlock comes with nearly two dozen templates and template components. Here they can also modify the menu and adjust the global styles.
WPZOOM is developing a Pro version of the theme which will be released in a few weeks with support for importing the entire demo, multiple color schemes, multiple demos, premium block templates and header layouts and additional footers.
Check out the demo on the WPZOOM website to see the theme in action. WPZOOM has also written documentation for UniBlock, which covers general topics such as using block templates, setting up home and blog pages, and creating a menu in the site editor. Since the company’s most popular themes are what would be considered classic themes, UniBlock is new territory for most of their customers. It is so far the only block theme among WPZOOM’s collection of 31 themes.
Adoption of block themes is slowly creeping into major WordPress theme stores and the official directory now hosts 160 tagged themes for full site editing. As more and more long-standing theme companies make their debut in block themes and develop a foundation for future themes, WordPress users may begin to see a rapid acceleration in the number and variety of themes. blocks available. UniBlock is so far one of the few block themes in the directory to focus only on business websites. It is available for free download at WordPress.org or through the admin themes panel.
