Our latest major release is all about being able to make templates more customizable in very fundamental ways.

Components

Stand-alone drag and drop elements that can be placed within content like buttons and titles. Reusable components reside in the new sidebar in the editor. More info in dev docs →

Sections

The building blocks of a template — rows of standard layout options that are stacked on top of each other. Sections are also part of the editor sidebar and can be dragged in as well. More info in dev docs →

Styles

A region can now have multiple design options to choose from. A couple of simple examples: aligning an image on the left the right, or changing the color of a button based on set choices. This however becomes even more powerful when you think about the possibilites it has being used with sections and styles. More info in dev docs →

Layouts

Able to save standard email layouts to reuse, like a regular newsletter for example.

Starter Template

With new accounts, we now include a bare-bones template option to get started right away, with standard layouts that can used for a basic email.

To showcase all the new features, we've also launched a major upgrade to the Blocks Edit promo site. Be sure to check it out for more info along with the revised implementation guide.
