You will receive detailed documentation along with additional features such as unlimited color combinations, countless Google web sources, custom widgets, etc.

The functions are based on a solid back-end redux framework.

Blocks are a great new tool for creating compelling content.

With the blocks, you can insert, rearrange and design multimedia content with very little technical knowledge. Instead of using a custom code, you can add a block and concentrate on its content.
