Reusable Blocks Extended

ཞིབ་བརྗོད།

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.

This is a very useful plugin, especially as it stops my admin team accidentally editing a reusable block and then changing all the blocks, which gutenberg sometimes messes up. This plugin could be extended even further.

I have finished the Korean translation.I just want to say thank you for developing such a good plugin.And I hope it will be translated into more languages so that many WordPress users can use it conveniently.

The plugin works fine... on its own. When used with other plugins that add columns to the reusable blocks view: this plugin blocks (pun intended) them from working:( So I can't use your plugin alongside: Article Word Count Column Sortable Word Count Reloaded On the other hand, the plugin Admin Columns blocks the above two, AND yours, from working... I hope you can update your plugin to play nice with other plugins? Or, if it's their fault: let me know, and I'll reach out to those other two developers, to let them know they should fix something. Apart from the above, I really dig the functionality of the plugin. Hence I wish I can get to use it;) Oliver

Very useful plugin. I needed to migrate a site from Stackable v2 to v3 and this plugin helped me to list which reusable blocks were actually still in use, so I didn't need to spend time updating the unused ones.
