Minimalist Library 1.4 for Blocs 5 is Available
The new version of the Minimalist Library brings 30 beautifully designed footer sections, 16 pre-assembled page templates, and more. It is available to all users for free.
I am thrilled to announce the release of the latest version of my best product for Blocs app - The Minimalist Library for Blocs 5. This update brings a plethora of significant and subtle improvements, including 30 brand-new footer sections and 16 pre-built page templates.
30 New Footer Sections
Version 1.4 of the Library introduces 30 new footer sections, each boasting a beautiful and distinctive design. To create these, I conducted thorough research on the best-looking footer sections in 2023 and recreated them for this update.
This brings the total number of stunning sections available to Minimalist Library users to an impressive 1100! And there's more to come. I will continue updating the existing ones and adding new sections on a monthly basis.
16 New Pre-Built Page Templates - OPTIONAL
The new version also includes 16 pre-built page templates, making website creation even more accessible for beginners. You can preview the new pages here.
Some of you requested this feature, but it's important to note that the Page Template format in Blocs 5 is not perfect. While the Page Templates are handy, they may have certain irregularities such as missing styles, incorrect margins, and padding, among other issues. For the best results, I still recommend using the regular custom sections to build your own pages.
New Product Template
Personally, I am sold on the idea of using the Minimalist Library for all my website projects. Its non-intrusive minimalist style makes it incredibly easy to customize the design to your liking with just a little effort, ensuring your website stands out with a truly unique look.
But, at the same time, now that the Blocs Library is out of beta, I am excited to announce that I'll be reinventing my older templates with fresh, stunning designs. I already have several almost-finished templates, and I plan to release the Agency and Product (in the screenshot above) templates in the coming weeks.
Blocs 5 Course - Blogging Update
I have been diligently working on planning and scripting the new Blogging course for the Blocs 5 Course.
I'm a big fan of Volt CMS, which I believe is the best 3rd party extension for Blocs 5. By the way, you can save up to 20% on Volt CMS until the end of July by using the discount coupon code SUMMERSALE23 at checkout.
That being said, I understand that some users prefer using only Blocs 5 and nothing else. So, for you, I'll be releasing an advanced module for the Blocs 5 Course, covering blogging without relying on any external tools.
Admittedly, this approach will involve more manual copy-pasting, duplicating, and moving of posts and other items, but I have a pleasant surprise update for the Minimalist Library that will make this process much easier and enjoyable.
I plan to launch the new module (or mini-course) next month. Stay tuned for updates!
