Here is a great example of Gutenberg’s granular control over the content. Wholesome Publishing expands on Gutenberg’s core functionality, similarly to what Editor’s Kit does, by providing visibility control over each individual block by letting us set individual blocks as drafts, and introducing block based comment threads.
One of the holy grails of blocks, as far as I am concern, is post loops. To me, this is the essence of dynamic blocks and over time I have used several tags to keep track of the blocks I review that include this feature in some capacity, most notably:
Out of the three above I believe that it is paramount that any new “post loop” blocks include support for all registered CPTs and Custom Taxonomies on a given WordPress site.
A little meta-update, while I am here:
After updating gu10.blog to WP 5.3 I spotted an error `o is not a function` when trying to update my content.
I also noticed that this error was hiding my categories and tags from the sidebar.
I noticed the error has already been reported here ,for now I will have to disable the plugin and continue with the core 6.7 version of Gutenberg.
UPDATE: It looks like the issue resurfaced and is again being discussed here:
This plugin extends and tweaks Gutenberg’s functionalities, bringing it to a new level while staying true to its original spirit.
I came across this plugins while writing my Inline Text Editing Comparison post and it instantly became one of my favorite plugins.
Below is the full list of features provided by the plugin’s author. More on their website, here: https://editorskit.com/
- Links with “rel” nofollow and sponsored attribute option
- Highlighted Text or Heading Colors
- Highlighted Text Background Color
- Clear Formatting Options
- Paragraph Justify Alignment
- Underline Text Format
- Uppercase Text Transform
- Images and Embeds Caption Alignment
- Nonbreaking Space
- Support for Markdown
- Text alignment for captions (images & embeds)
- Adding “no-rel” to links
- Mobile based and user log-in based block visibility
- ACF integration.
We know that adding inline styles are one of the most demanded features, but we also know it can be a double-edged sword and a gateway to all kinds of inline horrors.
I am going to review plugins which add inline styles to paragraph blocks, mostly color, backgrounds and general typography settings.
Most of these plugins are in fact Block collections which offer this added functionality as an extra, while three of them (Mighty Blocks, Advanced Rich Text Tools and Editors Kit) are standalone plugins, and do not include any blocks.
I made a review of Ghost Kit a while back but since then this plugin has added several new features, some of which offer extra settings and extend the functionalities of the block editor.
This plugin does NOT add any extra blocks, but extends the functionality & control of existing blocks :
- Typography (fonts, colors, backgrounds, letter spacing, line heights)
- Backgrounds & Gradients for all blocks
- Round Corners
- Drop shadow
- Mobile specific settings of all of the above
A very simple plugin to limit visibility of your content based on user roles, while offering an alternative area to add the content that will be shown to non logged-in users.
This block could be used to create a simple membership site, for instance.
We could also insert a reusable block in the “public” area with a call to action asking visitors to register, in order to gain access to that content.
This is what the plugin looks like in the backend:
The plugin has a setting to specify the exact user role that will have access to a given instance of the block:
The author of the plugin mentions some features coming down the road:
- Login Block
- Register Block
- Password Reset Block
- Restrict entire pages / posts, not just inline content
The plugin looks a little bit abandoned at the moment (no updates for the last 9 months) but I was able to confirm it works fine both with the WP core version of the editor (5.2) and with the beta/plugin version (6.6.0)
This is what the plugin looks like in action:
This is the public content
You will only see this, of course 🙂
