Native ExpressionEngine Features
- Entry Manager custom column (Bloqs must be set to searchable)
If you are unsure if an add-on works in Bloqs, but it works in Grid, then chances are it already works in Bloqs. There are a vast number of 3rd party fieldtypes not listed above that already work in Bloqs.
Bloqs is a robust and powerful add-on that adds a lot of flexibilty when building out your site content. Since you can add any number of bloqs to a single entry, keep in mind that the more bloqs you add, the more template parsing is required, and the longer it may take for a control panel page to load when editing an entry. For example, if you add 10 bloqs to an entry, and if each bloq has 5 atoms in it it, you're effectivley adding 50 custom fields to the entry. To mitigate this on the front-end you can use Bloqs' built in caching option, or add full featured caching with Speedy. In most cases caching won't be required, just keep performance in mind when planning and building your site with Bloqs.
