Blocks that will let you add other blocks inside them. Blockception.
This is one of may favourite block collections because it offers block management and extra display/spacing/animation settings.
Update: I have done a new review of this plugin, focusing on not just the blocks but on all the additional settings and extensions in functionality, please check it here.
Pop Up Block by Block Party
This plugins provides a single new block, which works as a container. It gets added along all other “Common Blocks”:
Gosign – Logo Slider Block
This is very a lightweight and straightforward plugin to display an image carousel, typically used for client logos. I have other block reviews specifically for Post Sliders (post loops), and for large single image containers (“Hero” sliders).
I can think of quite a few other applications, such as adding links to single posts/products, since it allows for custom links.
The plugins includes basic settings to control the layout of the block (number of items per slide) as well as it’s appearance (dots, arrows) and autplay/delay and if it should loop back to the beginning (“infinite”).
The block can be seen in action here:
One thing I do miss on this block is the possibility of setting to “wide” and “full width” modes.
This is an interesting and more advanced alternative to the Carousel Slider Block I already reviewed here. If you want a simpler and more generic Carousel container I would go with the plugin I mentioned before. For more image-oriented carousels this block offers some interesting new features.
This block works similarly to Ben’s Slider for Gutenberg but has more settings/options as it uses columns and horizontal scroll, making it a lot more detailed, flexible and intuitive to use:
Adding a little motion to your content can work miracles by literally making it “pop-out”. As with other functionalities there are several plugins that will allow you to add CSS animations using shortcodes, but they can be a little clunky to use. Seeing this feature translated into Gutenberg blocks is really interesting.
I have found several plugins that help animate blocks, and noticed they use two main approaches: The Container and the Extra Settings Panel.
Simple Shortcode Block
This simple plugin will allow you to preview the content of your shortcode in the backend
What does it look like in the backend?
What happens if you remove the plugin?
The block will disappear from the frontend and you will get this message in the backend. It would be nice if it could fallback to the default “Shortcode” block.
