What are the requirements to use the AinoBlocks blocks plugin?

You only need to have the latest version of WordPress on your website, to begin with. We do not recommend to use the Gutenberg plugin or WooCommerce blocks plugin on your live websites.

What WordPress themes work with AinoBlocks blocks?

Any Gutenberg-ready WordPress theme will work with the AinoBlocks plugin. Since we created the free FSE block Aino theme specifically to work in combination with our block collection we recommend you to use our Aino theme with AinoBlocks.

How do I get started using AinoBlocks?

After the AinoBlocks plugin is installed, you will see the AinoBlocks blocks collection in your blocks library on any page and post. You can now choose a block and insert it into your editor.

Does AinoBlocks come with patterns?

Yes, you can find the patterns inside the pattern library once you install one of our FSE block themes.

I am mostly using the grid block, because this block is great. I love it, am doing everything with it. Great work!

I bought a license for the Makoney Theme. In connection with AionoBlocks there are some errors that do not occur with a standard theme and make it impossible to use my website. Although my support request was marked as “read” at Elmastudio, I have not received an answer to my request for three weeks, not even by e-mail. For me, this is not an appropriate way of dealing with premium users who pay for it.

This is an extremely powerful plugin—it’s very advanced at how much it can do. It will enable you to do complex layouts within your block theme akin to what you currently see on Squarespace homepage (as of Dec ’22). This plugin will take you into the present and future of web design. It’s almost shocking :-O

Tried and loved it. A great solution if you don’t care about performance, but it loads 100s of KBs of extra CSS without even adding a single block. That should be taken care of.

The documentation pages are mostly empty. Tried the flexbox block, but it doesn’t show anything and I can’t figure out how to use it.
