Beauty & Power

We ❤ Content Creators
Calculator Blocks grew out of our own publishing experiences. We know all about the challenges of delivering the full potential of a great idea for content. We know the pain of keeping content updated for users as well as chaotic search engine algorithms. Our widget editor provides refreshing simplicity, with no Ph.D. required.

…And Also Spreadsheets
Bear with us, because we want to help you turn your existing spreadsheets into your secret weapon. Encapsulate your expertise or inside knowledge in a spreadsheet and let Calculator Blocks visualize it on WordPress. Now you can easily create content that would have previously cost $1,000’s in custom web development and weeks of work.

You can create your account here.

How Do Calculator Blocks Work Exactly?

Simple, first you sign up for Excelkits and select a starter template. Upload your own spreadsheet and customize the results. When you are ready, create your Excelkits API Key then add it to your WordPress Excelkits settings menu in the admin. You should then see your custom widget selectable within the Gutenberg editor’s calculator block.

Will It Work With My Excel/Google Sheets/Etc?

Yes. Download your sheet as an XLS or XLSX file and upload that file within Excelkits. You can then select your spreadsheet data just as you do for charts and graphs in your favorite spreadsheet software. Be aware not all functions you use may be supported, generally we support functions defined by the OpenDocument Format.

Does It Work On Mobile?

Yes. All layouts are designed for the needs of mobile users first, expanding elegantly as more screen space becomes available.

Deos It Work With Page Builders?

No. The Calculator Blocks plugin is for the WordPress Gutenberg editor and is not compatible with 3rd party page builders such as Elementor and Divi. However Excelkits will still work on these platforms. Simply copy the HTML snippets from the Excelkits editor and paste them into your page builder of choice as custom HTML.

Can It Integrate With My WordPress Database?

Yes. Although currently, it takes a little technical ability in order to integrate it. Reach out to Excelkits tech support for more details on setting this up.

How Much Does It Cost?

It’s free. However, if you’d like access premium features or support for a large number of widgets you’ll have to purchase a subscription.

I’ve been looking for a calculator plugin for my website to allow users to create budgets for their events, and this was exactly what I needed. It’s super easy to navigate and I love that you can mix and match the layouts. I’m already generating leads with the calculator since I’ve implemented it – highly recommend.
