Hello, I love your template and what you do!
When I saw him, I immediately realized that this is exactly what I need for my project!
I like the system of building pages using Grimlock 🙂 But I’m sure that adding support for the plugin “Widget Options” will help to expand its capabilities! This will allow you to create more complex and even more beautiful pages. You can see for yourself if you study the capabilities of this plugin 🙂July 26, 2018 at 14:55 #1411
Thank you for the kind words and your great contribution.
As you have probably noticed, some options appear in both plugins. Is there specific widget options you wish to use with Grimlock Section widgets? Maybe those can be added?
We’re looking into adding more options to our widget or integrating Grimlock with Widget Options to make them work hand in hand.
Thank you for your reply.

Those that I like most in “Widget Options”:
1) Adding a css class
2) Widgets in multiple columns
3) Widget output logic (by days, time, user roles, depending on the page, and more)
But it seems to me not worth “reinventing the wheel” and it will be easier to add compatibility.
That’s what I miss in “Grimlock Widgets”:
1) Multiple images (gallery) + adding css class + lightbox
I had to fix the plugin code to add a class to the image and attach the lightbox. This is not very convenient and applies to all images.
2) Place the image below the text.
3) WYSIWYG – text editor.
4) More options for customizing text, google fonts for headings.
5) Separators + custom separators 🙂
P.S: Sorry if my english is bad, I’m from Russia and use google translate 🙂July 29, 2018 at 02:31 #1450
You did not think to position Grimlock as an independent plug-in? With it, it’s easy to create beautiful landing page 🙂
And if you add more functions, then it saves time for many 🙂
Think about it. I have been working with WP for a long time and often used various editors, but none allowed me to create such beautiful pages in such short terms 🙂July 29, 2018 at 03:47 #1459
Of course this is in our plans to publish Grimlock (and some add-ons) on WordPress.org.
We wanted to do things step by step. First satisfy the users who bought our first theme in order to arrive with an already mature plugin.
Moreover the imminent arrival of Gutenberg will change the world of page builders and as we have at heart to develop 100% standard WordPress products, we think we’ll maybe design simple and effective tools around this new way of designing pages with WordPress.
Thank you very much for your feedback and your kind words, it gives us a lot of motivation to improve our themes and plugins ?.July 30, 2018 at 09:32 #1464
I’m glad to hear that you are not going to stop there! I believe that your developments have great prospects 🙂
As for the inconvenience, which I mentioned in another topic.
If the “Widget Options” plug-in is activated, then any interaction with Grimlock widgets will ruin everything, even if “Widget Options” functions are not used. For example, if I even change one letter in the header, then there are different indents or the Grimlock widget stops showing up. The result is seen in the screenshots. I have to disable the Widget Options plugin, before editing the Grimlock widgets, and then turn it back on.July 30, 2018 at 15:50 #1486
Thank you for your great feedback, this will be really valuable when we implement compatibility. 🙂
In the meantime, I’m afraid that there is no other way than disabling Widget Options when you want to edit a Grimlock Widget. But we’ll make sure to tell you when we implement compatibility or even if we find a temporary fix!
