If you liked the product package, you might be probably interested in what’s inside! Even more multipurpose content elements with huge customization possibilities.

1 – Text Blocks

The “Text” block allows you to add paragraphs, titles, quotes, icons, lists, and member content. Once any of the content blocks are added, you are free to customize each with a set of user-friendly tools. Here I’ve added a couple of the mentioned elements:

2 – Image Sliders & Grid Gallery

It’s hard to make any post/website/blog interesting and engaging without images. The plugin allows you to add images, slider, or grid gallery. Again, each element is supplied with a range of settings to apply the most optimal sizes, colors and styles for all needed elements. I also added a couple to the test post:

3 – Buttons for Social Sharing and Downloads

Additionally, you can add various types of buttons and customize their styles (colors, sizes, button text, links). Social and Social share buttons are also at your hand. Just drag and drop the needed element:

4 – Video and Audio Blocks

You are free to embed your Youtube or Vimeo video into the page or set it as a background on any page or post. The plugin supports various formats of a background video – WEBM, MP4, OGV. You can also select a specific image to cover your video and apply more settings (e.g repeat, mute, etc.).

5 – Features Block

Additionally, you can use a variety of elements for more specific niches: Posts grid, Accordion, Call to action, Space, Service box, Table, Google map, charts, tabs, Splash screen, Countdown timer, etc. Some of them are a necessity, others, like a call-to-action, can become a great conversion-boosting tool:

To create the following example, I changed the theme and dragged the Services boxes along with the images. They are very useful for a variety of business niches as help quickly visualize your main services and key ideas:

If you need more instruments to show your data, you should be able to find it in the list of the elements. To show more possibilities, I put a bit more content modules such as a chart, tabs, Google map, and a countdown timer:

Motopress content editor also lets you add WordPress widgets to your pages and posts with a simple drag and drop. This block is very useful where you might want to manually insert recent posts widgets and tag cloud.
