Guten Post Layout – Gutenberg Post Layout Collection

I am still looking for the best block to show a grid/list/slider/carousel of posts, including Custom Post Types. I am going to take a shot at this one today:

Gosign Blocks

Gosign has an alternative to blocks, offering them individually. This makes it harder to manage them all but improves discoverability.

Secure Blocks for Gutenberg By Matt Watson

Update: The plugin was removed from the repo 🙁

This plugin has been closed as of January 15, 2020 and is not available for download. This closure is permanent.

The only current way to achieve rol based visibility would be using Editors Kit‘s Role based visibility and Conditional Tags features.

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 🙂

GutenSlider

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.

Carousel Block

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:

Ben’s (Image) Slider for Gutenberg

This plugin create a “Carousel Holder” which allows any block type inside each of its slides only images followed by paragraphs.

If you need a slider container that allows to add any type of block inside I would recommend the Carousel Block instead.
