Added the block to my site and after I saved the page, it resulting in a critical error on the page. I removed the plugin and deleted the block from the page manually and it still would not load the page. Had to go find the revisions of the home page manually inside the database, delete those, and then my home page was accessible again. Sad because this has all the features I need, but doesn’t work reliably. This is not the first time I’ve run into critical errors with this plugin
