Reusable Blocks Extended

Kuvaus

Extend Gutenberg Reusable Blocks feature with a complete admin panel, widgets, shortcodes and PHP functions.

This plugin extends the Reusable Blocks admin interface and provides few fancy features:

  • Add Reusable Blocks dashboard informations
  • Activate Reusable Blocks admin screen
  • Provide a list of Posts where each Reusable Block is used and the date it was last modified
  • Provide a live preview of your reusable blocks from the Reusable Blocks admin screen, with your theme stylesheets
  • Provide a Reusable Blocks Widget to use your block anywhere you want in your theme’s widgets areas
  • Provide a Reusable Blocks Shortcode to use your block anywhere you want in your Post types (even if they use the Classic Editor rather than Gutenberg!)
  • Provide some Reusable Blocks PHP functions to use your block anywhere you want in your theme even

  • NEW: An easy tool to convert reusable blocks to block patterns in one click!

For a full presentation of Reusable Blocks Extended, see this WordCamp Talk synthesis available on my blog.

How to implement Reusable Blocks with PHP functions

Ran into a wall trying to get WordPress Core's reusable Gutenberg blocks to work in widget areas. Seems obvious that that's a perfectly reasonable use case. Thank you for making this plugin, it's excellent!

This is a must have if you use reusable blocks. Easy access via the admin menu bar and it also tells you where your reusable blocks are being used, so you don't accidentally delete any of them. Pure gold, thank you.
