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.
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.
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.
A block suite that
includes claims certainly includes custom queries for post lists and which does extend Gutenberg in two interesting ways: custom inline color and fonts.
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.
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
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.
