Reusable Blocks Extended

Description

Extend Gutenberg Reusable Blocks feature with a complete admin panel, widgets, shortcodes and PHP functions.

This plugin extends the Reusable Blocks admin interface and provides few fancy features:

  • Add Reusable Blocks dashboard informations
  • Activate Reusable Blocks admin screen
  • Provide a list of Posts where each Reusable Block is used and the date it was last modified
  • Provide a live preview of your reusable blocks from the Reusable Blocks admin screen, with your theme stylesheets
  • Provide a Reusable Blocks Widget to use your block anywhere you want in your theme’s widgets areas
  • Provide a Reusable Blocks Shortcode to use your block anywhere you want in your Post types (even if they use the Classic Editor rather than Gutenberg!)
  • Provide some Reusable Blocks PHP functions to use your block anywhere you want in your theme even

  • NEW: An easy tool to convert reusable blocks to block patterns in one click!

For a full presentation of Reusable Blocks Extended, see this WordCamp Talk synthesis available on my blog.

Thank you for this! Came upon this plugin by accident and is now such a timesaver. I am able to run this plugin for so many usecases. One of my must have plugins.

С помощью этого плагина можно массово вставить или удалить пользовательский блок Гутенберг в любое место записей или страниц. Очень удобно! Спасибо разработчикам!
