We’re back with another exciting update to revolutionize how you create and manage your WordPress website. SeedProd 6.15.10 comes with 2 new blocks, easier access to help and support, and even more templates for perfecting your dream web design.

The Business Reviews Block and the Alert Block make it easier for you to showcase customer feedback and communicate important messages with your audience. While the new Inline Help option provides instant access to tips and documentation without leaving the page builder.

Check out the video below to learn more about these exciting new additions to SeedProd:

Showcase Reviews from Google & Yelp

Your online reputation can make or break your business’s success, and customer reviews play a large role. Not only do 95% of customers read online reviews before buying, but positive reviews can increase spending by 31%.

With statistics like that, it makes sense to leverage customer feedback wherever you can on your website. What remains is finding a solution that makes doing so as painless as possible.

That’s why we developed the Business Reviews block for premium SeedProd users.

This powerful WordPress block lets you pull customer reviews and star ratings from Google and Yelp and display them anywhere on your site using SeedProd’s drag-and-drop builder. You can show reviews from both platforms together in a single feed:

Or you can place the block multiple times and show reviews from Google and Yelp separately:

The block has countless customization options to tailor the reviews to your website design. It offers grid or carousel layouts with multiple slides and light or dark themes.

Additionally, there are dropdown menus to filter reviews by date or rating, allowing you to put your best reviews center stage.

Further customization options include:

  • Review date type and color
  • Star rating icon size and color
  • Reviewer image, name, color, and link
  • Review text color, length, and read more text
  • Enable or disable specific review details
  • Advanced text styling and spacing options

The Business Reviews block is an easy solution for any business to build trust and credibility.

With just a few clicks, online stores can display user-generated content for shoppers to make informed purchase decisions. Businesses with a physical location can also utilize reviews to attract local customers.

Moreover, adding Google and Yelp reviews to your site can provide valuable insights into what customers like and dislike about your business. With this information, you can make improvements to drive customer satisfaction, all without writing a single line of code.

Highlight Important Content with Alerts

Our next new feature, the Alert block, continues with the theme of better user experience. Otherwise known as modal dialog boxes, you can use them to display information or prompt website visitors to take specific actions.

In the block settings, you can quickly choose the type of alert to display:

  • Info
  • Success
  • Warning
  • Danger

It includes spaces to enter the alert title and description and the option for users to dismiss the alert after reading it. Beyond that, you can customize the font sizes and title tags and choose an icon to display alongside the alert.

This block also comes with several pre-made block templates. With 4 styles to choose from, you can quickly find a design that best suits your website’s look and feel.

Alert block templates

There are many ways to use the Alert block on your WordPress site. Want to remind shoppers to finish checking out? In that case, you can show a warning alert on your shopping cart page, explaining that shoppers will lose their progress if they abandon their cart.

Similarly, you can display a success message on your order confirmation page to reassure shoppers that their order went through.

You can even use alert boxes on your blog to remind readers to subscribe to your newsletter for free updates.

Easy Access to Help & Support

Besides adding valuable features to improve your web-design workflow, we also want to make it super easy for SeedProd users to get helpful tips, advice, and support. With this in mind, we’re happy to introduce Inline Help so you can access our documentation without leaving the plugin interface.

Whenever you see the “Help” text or question mark icon, you can click it to see our documentation categories in the same window. From there, you can open individual help articles in a new browser tab and click the “X” icon to exit the help window and return to your project.

SeedProd inline help access

You can access Inline Help from the page builder, theme builder, settings page, and anywhere else in the SeedProd plugin dashboard. It’s also free to use across our lite and premium plugins.
