My Favorite WordPress Blocks?
That is a great question. There are so many plugins with different uses, it’s hard to choose.
I am mainly focusing on three plugins in particular: Kadence Blocks, Jetpack & Ultimate Blocks.
Why did I pick these three?
I put them on a spreadsheet & weeded out the duplicates. I tested all os the plugins to see which ones I liked the most.
the best Block plugins
In my opinion are, in the following order:
- Kadence Blocks – These are some of the best quality blocks available. There are many useful items, including; accordion, countdown, dividers, forms, sliders, testimonials & templates.
- Ultimate Blocks – They deserve a #2 spot for quality & usefulness, including; call to action, howto, social share, sliders & star ratings.
- Jetpack – This one is so much more than plugins, it is a full suite of tools for your site. It also includes some great plugins, like; forms, payments, podcasts, posts, instagram, pinterest & lots of business & payment plugins.
- CoBlocks is another great option with a lot of useful things, including; carousel, tweets, hero, icons, logos, social, galleries & much more.
- Getwid is an excellent choice & the only one that has an anchor block, also; count down/up, instagram, image stack, toggle & templates.
- Spectra has a lot of useful blocks, like; testimonials, FAQ, CTA, howto’s, timelines, lottie animations, price lists, teams & taxonamies.
- Essential has many unique blocks, such as; flip box, image compare, NFT’s, parallax slider & typing text. As well as many more.
- Rank Math is not really a block plugin but it is a great SEO & does have a couple of nice blocks; FAQ, howto & table of contents.
So this is only a top 8,
but these are the good ones. If I had to recommend only one it would be Kadence, followed by Ultimate. Jetpack is great for the sheer amount of other things it does.
I am currently using: Jetpack, Kadence, Ultimate as well as Rank Math.
Just remember that once you start using one you will need to keep using it, or it could break your site.
