What is a Custom Block?

Custom Blocks allow you to add special functionality and features to your Content Pages such as HTML Fragments, Maps, Forms and more. This allows you to expand upon what you can achieve with conventional Content Blocks and gives you more creative freedom to explore what you can achieve with your website.
