Gutenberg, most probably you have been hearing this a lot for the last few months. In case you haven’t heard, Gutenberg is the future content editor for WordPress.
It’s expected to come into core WordPress soon. For more information on the editor, you can check out our post Introducing Gutenberg Editor.
The main idea in Gutenberg is ‘blocks’. Blocks are essentially everything that you will be able to insert in your content.
Gutenberg comes with basic blocks that you will need to create content. Here is a list of some of the basic blocks.
In general, Gutenberg has everything you need to create content. To take it further and create beautiful contents, we created Ultimate Blocks.
Introducing Ultimate Blocks
Ultimate Blocks plugin adds additional blocks to your Gutenberg Editor making it easier for you to create better content.
Ultimate Blocks comes with the missing blocks that you will need for better presentation of your content.
We currently have 8 blocks in Ultimate Blocks. More awesome blocks are in the making, which will be available to you in future releases.
Here’s a list of blocks that are available in Ultimate Blocks:
- Call to Action Block
- Click to Tweet Block
- Divider Block
- Feature Box Block
- Notification Box Block
- Number Box Block
- Testimonial Block
- Spacer Block
You must have Gutenberg installed to use Ultimate Blocks Plugin.
Call to Action Block
Call to Action block adds a nicely designed call to action box in your posts. It comes with all the customization options you need.
Click to Tweet Block
This block lets you add tweetable content in your posts. You can add your username too. Some color options too.
Although Gutenberg comes with a separator, it doesn’t give you any options to change the visuals. Divider block will give you that.
Feature Box Block
Add a feature list or highlights with images. Lots of customization options, you can also choose from three column options.
Notification Box Block
Add little notification boxes in your posts. Use them to add important information or notices.
Number Box Block
Like feature box, but instead of using an image for every column, numbers are used. Comes with three column options too.
Add testimonial from your users in your posts/pages. Simple block with options to add testimonial author image, name, role.
As the name suggests, Spacer block lets you add white space between two blocks,
Over to You
We will keep adding new blocks and improve the existing ones over the time. If you have any ideas for new blocks, don’t hesitate to let us know.
Ultimate Blocks was created using Create Guten Block from Ahmad Awais.
