Include the fields of another Front Matter Template into the current one. Good for commonly-reused front matter fields like SEO information.
A Blocks field is similar to a Repeatable Field Group, except that it supports unlike objects. Blocks fields are great for things like dynamic page layouts: a series of sections where each section may consist of different fields.
Blocks fields work by including other front matter templates. You specify which templates can be used in your blocks field when creating the Front Matter Template. When adding content to a Blocks field, you can select which of these templates to add from a dropdown.
+++ [[blocks]] background_style = "Brand Color" heading = "Features" size = "Small" template = "hero-section" [[blocks]] background_style = "Light" content = "[Bulma](https://bulma.io/) is a modern, responsive CSS framework with a flexbox-based grid system. " heading = "Built With Bulma" image = "/uploads/2018/04/19/bulma-logo.png" image_position = "Left" template = "media-feature" +++
