Font Awesome is now divided into three categories, Solid, Regular and Brands. An additional category drop-down menu is provided when choosing an icon.

Additional Features and a Helping Hand with SiteOrigin Premium

SiteOrigin Premium is a plugin that adds a wide array of additional settings and functionality to SiteOrigin widgets, Page Builder and SiteOrign themes.

The SiteOrigin Social Media Buttons widget offers 47 networks to choose from while the Branding category in Font Awesome 5.6.3 offers a whopping 414 icons. If you’d like to add a social media button not included in the SiteOrigin Social Media Buttons list or would prefer to use one of the alternative network icons that Font Awesome offers, SiteOrigin Premium includes the ability to create a custom network with the icon of your choice.

SiteOrigin Premium also includes our next level email support service. If you need expert advice and quick replies, consider SiteOrigin Premium.

SiteOrigin Widgets in the Block Editor

If you’re using SiteOrigin Widgets in the new WordPress Block Editor (Gutenberg), you can use the SiteOrigin Layout Block to insert a Page Builder layout and then add a SiteOrigin Widget. You can also insert a SiteOrigin Widget Block and insert a widget directly. Alternatively, install the Classic Editor plugin and enjoy Page Builder in its familiar interface.

    I am using the Bento theme and the free version of Page builder version 2.9.7 and widgets bundle 1.14.1 When I am in Gutenberg I select the SiteOrigin Widget I get an error message: “This block has encountered an error and cannot be previewed.” In the settings, it says to “Select a SiteOrigin widget from the dropdown.” But there is no dropdown available because it has not loaded. I was expecting to see selection options come up in the block as it seemed to do in one of your videos. What do I need to do to fix this?

    “The SiteOriginLayout” block comes up with the same message: “This block has encountered an error and cannot be previewed.”
    What do I need to do to fix this?

      Hi Murray

      Thanks for reaching out.

      Sorry to hear about the hassle. Can you perhaps open a support thread on the forum? It might take a few replies to assist properly, the forum would be the best place for that. You can open a thread here: https://siteorigin.com/thread/. We’ll reply ASAP with steps to troubleshoot.

      This would be the best place to start: Page: Identifying Plugin Issues.
