How to Select Multiple Blocks in WordPress

If you’re new to the WordPress Block editor, you might be wondering how to select multiple blocks. 

Well, in this short tutorial, I’ll show you how to select multiple blocks in WordPress. 

Selecting multiple blocks at once can be very useful if you want to copy-paste them somewhere or edit their styles altogether.

So, let’s not waste any more time and get straight into it. 

How To Select Multiple Blocks In WordPress

Here are the steps required to select multiple blocks in WordPress: 

Let’s say you have content in your post or page in the WordPress editor as shown in the image below: 

As you may already know, the Gutenberg editor of WordPress treats each paragraph or content element as an individual block.

So, to select multiple blocks in WordPress, simply hold the Shift key on your keyboard and select all the blocks you want to. 

Once all the blocks are selected, you can copy or move them all together. On top of that, you can also edit the color and typography settings of the selected blocks from the right sidebar. 

So, that’s how you can select multiple blocks in WordPress. 

But wait, there’s more. 

What if you don’t want to select the same multiple blocks all the time? 

For that, you can simply turn your multiple selected blocks into a group. Now, you won’t have to select them by holding the Shift key anymore. 

Grouping blocks not only allow you to select the whole block as one but also let you edit each block individually. 

That’s pretty neat, isn’t it? 


I hope this tutorial helped you learn how to select multiple blocks in WordPress. You can easily do it by holding the Shift key and selecting any number of blocks you want. This way, you can copy, edit, or move multiple blocks at once.
