Shine block guide

Our themes feature a built-in page builder to help you to easily customise your pages. The page builder is based on blocks. Each page builder features different blocks, and each block has a different role.

If you aren’t familiar with the page builder and how to use it, we recommend checking out this tutorial.

Here are the blocks that are included with the Shine theme:

Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

The FAQ block can be used to display frequently asked questions. The answers are hidden but when the user clicks on the question, the answer is revealed.

This is what it looks like on the front end of the website:

To add an FAQ click the Add Question/Answer button to add a new frequently asked question.

Simply enter a question and then the answer to this question next to it.

To add another FAQ, just click Add Question/Answer again.

You can add as many frequently asked questions as you wish, and you can also rearrange the order of the frequently asked questions.

To move a FAQ, hover over the number beside the FAQ you want to move. Then hold the left button mouse button down and drag the FAQ to where you want it to be.

Testimonials

The testimonials block will display testimonials in a slideshow format. You can only use one testimonial block per page.

This is what it looks like on the front end of the website:

Once you have added the Testimonials block, click the Add Testimonial button to add a testimonial.

Then enter the name of the person or business that has provided the testimonial, the testimonial itself, and an image to display beside it.

To add another testimonial, just click Add Testimonial again.

You can add as many testimonials as you wish. You can also rearrange the order of the testimonials.

To move a testimonial, hover over the number beside the testimonial you want to move. Then hold the left button mouse button down and drag the testimonial to where you want it to be.

Featured pages
