Page Builder Components
Page Builder Components are called Blocks. These blocks are also often referred to as Content Blocks.
Each Theme has different Blocks, and each Block is tailored to that Theme specifically, therefore, you cannot apply a Block from Theme B to Theme A.
Blocks include components from all pages like: Contact Page, Blog List Page, About, etc. This allows you to mix and match different blocks into a single page and design a unique page layout.
Below is a short list of a few common Blocks found in all Themes:
Header and Footer Blocks – are standard for all Themes. These blocks are added to the top and bottom of your site.
