Toolset Blocks allows to visually design templates and archives, create custom lists of content, custom searches and more. It adds over 30 blocks, all supporting Dynamic Content.

Facet WP allows you to add filters based on site’s existing post types, custom fields, and taxonomies. It uses AJAX to update results in real time as you apply filters and only shows filtering options that are applicable for the remaining results.
