Forestry blocks theme

This theme was built to work out-of-the-box with or without Forestry.

Check out the introduction to uBuild and Blocks here.

All content is controlled through Front Matter: as we mentioned in our previous article about Blocks, building the entire page from front matter allows us to take a modular approach to our theme. Each component is completely self-contained and configured via Blocks.

The theme consists of seven sections:

  • Navigation Bar
  • Hero Section
  • Content Feature
  • 1-2-3 columns
  • Details Section
  • Call-To-Action
  • Footer

Each section has 1-3 alternatives you can choose from and can easily be added and rearranged. Once you understand how Blocks work you can create new Blocks using simple HTML and CSS.

This theme is created to give you a starting point for adding page builder functionality to your own site. We hope it’ll help you whether you use it out-of-the-box or as a starting point to learn how to implement your own Blocks.
