I found a problem that the countdown block doesn't show style in the frontend, but looks fine at the backend. The support team answer my mail and help me out immediately. The change from HTTP to HTTPS solves the problem. And the team show me the solution by a video which super clean and high-efficient.

I just installed this plugin without any hassle. It contains some blocks you will only find here (compared to other plugins of the same kind I tried) such as dual button, toggle content, image comparison. Customization is easy and very intuitive, all is fast and easy. Thanks to the developpers, a great job !

Essential blocks is the only plugin that has a flip box with the exact features I was looking for. Support is excellent and very responsive!

First of All Thanks for providing such variety of options in one plugin, especially for free! I liked the idea generally but there were many bugs that I hope to fix ASAP: 1- in many blocks (Testimonial, Call to action) text wrapping didn't follow English rules with hyphens, it breaks lines at any letter! 2- Icons sometimes didn't work with Testimonial block and replaced by weird square 3- When having a link inside "info box" whether hyperlink for a word or the whole box (option inside the block) both lead to duplicate the block itself on the front-end page! 4- Sequential Info boxes on mobile view are showing adjusting without spaces between them, even if there is padding in the desktop view, to fix I've to increase padding manually. 5- Accordion block is amazing in customization options, but there is a bug Title Align didn't work in Accordion block I hope my comments will be helpful to you, I wish to give you 5 star for your efforts and generosity in options, but let's keep it 3 stars for now and I'm sure you will do a great job in near future. PS: I'm not technical/coding guy
