Gutenberg Post Blocks

Last Updated on

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.

Last Updated on

When writing long posts, a table of contents is absolutely necessary. There are many plugins on the repo which will use the heading structure to create this summary dynamically, and add the to the posts automatically:

I would like to cover today several new blocks that offer a similar functionality to the two examples above but which work as blocks.

Tab Blocks: a comparison

Last Updated on

Historically tab blocks have been something relatively tricky to do, requiring fiddling around with shortcodes or, worse even, inserting them into theme templates (I have a dark past, I will admit that).

Fortunately there are many block collections which come with built in tab blocks and that will make it a lot simpler to manage your tabs.

Here are a few ordered from the most basic ones to those with more options/settings. I plan to add more blocks in the future as I review more block collections:

A fairly straightforward and light-weight block to add an instagram feed. If need want extra options & settings please check other options, such as the block offered by Ghost Kit.

I quite like to, when you first insert it, the block provides a link right there to go get a IG token:

One of the beauties of Gutenberg is that it creates an ecosystem in which all new blocks and UI elements are fully compatible and interchangeable.

This means that the work of different developers is now recyclable and stackable.

I created this site to test and keep track of new blocks and other Gutenberg related plugins.

Thank you for visiting!
