Conclusion
  • As we can restrict any block(s) or layout(s), this helps the content editor or site builder to focus on only important/needed block(s) or layout(s).
  • If any website has lots of block(s) or layout(s) which are not in use, then this module is the best option to restrict block(s) or layout(s).
