Gutenberg Post Blocks

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.

Ghost Kit – Gutenberg Blocks and Templates Collection

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.

Page Builder Gutenberg Blocks – Kioken Blocks

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.

If you need to display Custom Post Types I also would recommend you take a look at Archive Mapping and Post Selector in general or Product Blocks in the case of WooCommerce products.

Gosign Blocks

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

Advanced Gutenberg

This one’s a bit confusing, as there is already another plugin called Advanced Gutenberg Blocks.

This plugin offers a balanced list of blocks, including some not too common, such as the “Advanced list” and the “Summary” blocks.

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 🙂
