Getwid Progress Bar Blocks for Gutenberg

Linear Progress Bar Block: Main Features

The Getwid linear progress bar lets you visualize the status of ongoing events & projects as well as showcase the expertise.

To add a Progress bar WordPress block on your page, click on the “+” icon, type the block name and pick it:

The block offers the most essential block settings, namely the track and indicator. In the Settings tab, you can pick the progress value in percentage and write down the value suffix. Then, you can enable animation to add a smooth effect to your status bar.

Finally, you can choose the color or gradient background. What’s more, the Getwid blocks are able to automatically inherit the typography & color settings of the current WordPress theme. This means you no longer need to spend extra time adjusting the visual styling of your progress bar.

Circle Progress Bar WordPress Block: Main Features

Now, let’s review an alternative Circlular Progress bar block by Getwid. As obvious as it sounds, the main difference from a previous block is the fact that progress bars are circular. Ultimately, this looks more eye-catching and visually attractive within a website page.

Similar to the linear progress bar block, it comes with the bar track and the bar indicator. On top of it, this Getwid element provides a few more customization options.

Here you are allowed to change circular progress indicators. So by default, the indicator value is shown in percentages, but you can always change it to a text value or written down any other percentage.

The circle progress bar also features more styling settings. You can adjust a bar sickness, size, active animation, and set up colors for both background and a bar itself:
