First of all to open this block hover over the writing field, click on “+” and choose a banner there.
Once you have a block on your screen, add a photo for the background. Click on Media library to set some nice default pictures or upload pics from your computer files.
In case you need to change a picture in the background while editing click on the pencil icon at any time and choose the one you need, all settings will be saved.
With the Banner block, you are allowed to write any appealing text, CTA, or advertisements – whatever you want to focus visitor’s attention on.
Banner Gutenberg Block enables you to attach a link you may find suitable to the banner itself. At your disposal to choose whether it opens in a new tab or in the existing one. In the latter case visitors will be redirected from your website, so pay attention to this.
There are different size options for you to choose from. The available sizes are the ones your theme has.
The content may be aligned either horizontally (left, center, right) or vertically (top, middle, bottom). But each of these options has something peculiar and special. Choose what banner text layout suits your website best.
Here is our example, we chose center horizontal alignment and middle vertical alignment to make sure content will be noticed.
By default, the height is calculated according to the content text of the block. But any height can be easily set up in a block height field.
The available units are px (pixels), vh (viewportheight), vw (viewportwidth), % (percents).
The same is with content width.
Getwid gives you some great options to choose from for separate animation effects for the background image and for the content. This helps to display your website in a unique way, animations make content vivid and not monotonous & boring.
In the field block animation select any appealing effect you want (Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo).
Do the same in the Text animation field. Options are different for the content and for the background. You can see how it works when you hover over the picture.
By the way, if you have some fresh ideas for new animations, feel free to inform us, and maybe we will add them to our list in future updates.
The pre-last section is color and here you can choose any showy color we propose or select a customized one. Color can be chosen not only for the background but for the content text as well. Regulate the opacity in a corresponding field to create a fully unique block design.
There is also an advanced section for experienced users where custom CSS classes for more personalized design can be added.

The banner appears on my website with the image in front and the text behind it, so the text cannot be read. How can I fix this?
Please contact our support team to get assistance with the Banner block on your site.
Excellent block, thank you! Is there a way of deactivating the link functionality?
The default block settings so far don’t have this option, but if you are familiar with CSS, you can edit the styles to remove a default link (set the cursor value to default).
I came across your blocks today and Im amazed. They are the best of those I have tested so far, next up for testing is the theme!
Thank you, great job!
One question that would make my design life even better: Is there a way to turn off the animation on the banner block? I can di it on the text but not the pic/banner itself.
Hi Mario! Thanks for your feedback, much appreciated! So far there is no such option to set the block animation to “none”, but the good news is that we have this option planned for the next plugin update! So keep an eye on it. By the way, have you tried the Сover block by Gutenberg? It may solve the issue.
