Blocked is a Responsive WordPress theme, built with extreme attention to details.

Featuring the Layout Editor, an extremely useful tool that helps you build any layout you can imagine.

The Layout Editor serves as a visual configuration tool to shortcode interfaces. So, instead of providing tons of shortcodes, Blocked provides Layout Components, which are configurable design elements that add specific content into any area of your site.

You have tons of options at your disposal. Each Layout Component has several options to be configured, unique to each component. You can add as many components as you want.

Using the Layout Editor, you can create Layouts and reuse them, using the Layout in Layout feature. Include parts of a layout in different places. One change updates multiple layouts at the same time!

Additionally, using the Duplicate Current Layout feature, you can create a copy of your current Layout, and make individual edits to all copies!

There’s a lot to be expected, this is the result of 4 full months from Design to Development and Testing.
