FAQ

How many sites can I build?

There’s no limit to the number of sites you can build with MaxiBlocks. The plugin, blocks and all features are free to use for any purpose, personal or commercial.

Do I need to pay for advanced blocks?

No, all page builder features and blocks are free for everyone. You can build anything you want with MaxiBlocks without restrictions. To help you work faster we offer a pro template library subscription that gives you thousands more templates built with Maxi. Our in-house template creators have years of experience working with Maxi. You can benefit from their skills and save a ton of time by using the templates we create and maintain just for you.

How can you offer unlimited domains? Is it sustainable?

Absolutely. Our strategy is to offer unlimited domains to attract a broad user base, which in turn boosts our sales of premium templates. This model is sustainable because our revenue comes from these template sales rather than limiting the number of domains, ensuring creators have free access to all essential features, while we thrive through template upgrades. It’s a win-win!

Is MaxiBlocks compatible with my theme?

MaxiBlocks is designed to be compatible with most WordPress themes. However, some themes may have unique styling or functionality that could affect compatibility. We recommend testing MaxiBlocks with your theme for the best experience. Talk to us if you have any issues. Happy to help where possible. Look out for the MaxiBlocks Theme coming soon too.

Does MaxiBlocks work with Gutenberg?

Yes, MaxiBlocks is fully integrated with the Gutenberg editor, providing custom Gutenberg blocks and full compatibility with WordPress’s native editor.

What is a Pro access account?

A Pro access account gives access to your my.maxiblocks.com account, the pro library and priority support

Who should use a Pro access account?

Website owners, designers and developers who need access to our Pro template library.

Is the Pro access account for my end client?

No, it’s intended for website owner, designers and developers. End clients don’t need an account to use the website or pro patterns you downloaded or created for them.

What’s the difference between a Pro access account and handing over a completed website?

A Pro access account is for creating and downloading from our library. Once a site is completed, it can be handed over to a anyone who can use it fully without any special account.

What are some usage scenarios?

Scenario A: Designer Jane, with a Pro access account, accesses the library, crafts five distinct websites, and hands these sites over to five separate clients. These clients can fully operate their websites without any need for a Pro access account.

Scenario B: Individual Alex uses his account to build several personal projects, all without needing separate accounts.

Why don’t you need licence keys with the pro library?

We’re on a mission to make licence keys and domain restrictions go extinct, just like dinosaurs (except without the cool bones). Plus, we refuse to follow the crowd and hold basic features hostage just to sell the “full-version.” With Maxi, your pro templates always stay functional and receive updates indefinitely.

How do sites built with Pro templates stay updated?

Each Pro access account allows you to create unlimited sites. Sites crafted with Pro templates always auto-update, even without Pro access.

Can I access the pro library on multiple devices?

Yes. One authenticated Pro account can be signed in from multiples devices and/or browsers at the same time.

How does copyright work?

MaxiBlocks believes in the spirit of open collaboration. All our templates, patterns, and icons carry the CC0 1.0 license meaning you can freely use them for personal or commercial projects.

I have been working a while with MaxiBlocks site builder and can’t more highlight their extraordinary support. Solved topics in a remote session and via email. I have received more help for challenges to solve than expected. There are many tools out there, but if you are searching for a trustworthy partner, check MaxiBlocks for your next site project.

WooW! I’m really impressed with the capabilities of this plugin…I know this category of plugins very well – I have probably tested all Gutenberg add-ons available on the market and I must admit that MaxiBlocks is really top shelf and top league!Just install the plugin to see the amazing possibilities of website personalization this plugin offers.Additionally, it is worth mentioning that the free version and the Pro version differ in the number of available templates and not in the number of functions – this is incredible! Big congratulations to the developer for his amazing work!This is truly a top plugin!

Change log

Updates 24 May 2024

Updates 23 May 2024
MaxiBlocks v1.8.6
* Update: Added support for using empty Group and Column Maxi blocks. This allows for more flexibility when creating layouts.
* Fix: Resolved an issue with broken icons hiding content in Pure Footer Pro 103/104/105 patterns. The footer content should now display properly.

Updates 16 May 2024
MaxiBlocks v1.8.5
* Fix: Resolved an issue where links were being duplicated on the frontend when using the Text block with lists. This ensures that links within list items are rendered correctly without any unintended repetition, providing a cleaner and more accurate representation of the content.

MaxiBlocks v1.8.4
* Update: Implemented a feature to hide repeated Context Loop content during pagination, providing a cleaner and more intuitive user experience.

* Update: Introduced aria label support in the Advanced settings tab, improving accessibility for users relying on assistive technologies.
* Update: Added an option to use Static value in Dynamic Content for Text, Button, and Divider blocks inside a Context Loop for Advanced Custom Fields and Custom Post Types.
* Update: Enhanced Dynamic Content performance on the frontend when using pagination with a large number of posts (exceeding 100). The optimization significantly improves loading speed and reduces resource consumption, resulting in a smoother browsing experience for users.
* Fix: Resolved an issue with rendering HTML content for Dynamic Content on the frontend, ensuring proper display of page elements.

* Fix: Resolved an issue with the rendering of previews when swapping templates in the Editor experience, improving editor speed during template selection.
* Fix: Addressed Firefox console errors related to pattern previews, enhancing browser compatibility and user experience.
* Fix: Removed legacy code that caused Dynamic Content options to freeze when a pattern contained links in child blocks, improving overall stability and usability.
* Fix: Resolved an issue with incorrect bottom spacing for the Group Maxi block on the frontend, ensuring consistent layout and design.
* Fix: Corrected the link title behaviour when using the URL as the title in combination with pagination. The title now accurately reflects the intended Dynamic Content value, ensuring proper accessibility and user experience.
