The latest version of PublishPress Blocks has a submenu for “Synced Patterns”. This feature was previously called “Reusable Blocks”.
This submenu allows you to reach the “Synced Patterns” / “Reusable blocks” page screen that is normally difficult to find in WordPress.
These patterns are an incredibly useful feature in the Gutenberg block editor. They allow you to create content once and use it multiple times inside different posts and pages. In future updates for PublishPress Blocks, we're going to add more features to help you manage reusable blocks.
To enable or disable this submenu, go to the “Dashboard” area in PublishPress Blocks and use the toggle for “Synced Patterns”.
This change is part of a major series of updates to the PublishPress Blocks plugin. These updates allow you to control how and when blocks appear on your site. For example, we've just added the “Block Controls” feature, which gives you a wide range of options, including these:
- Schedule control: schedule when to start showing and/or stop showing a block.
- User roles control: choose which users can see your blocks.
- Term archives control: choose on which taxonomies and terms archive pages your blocks can be displayed.
- Pages control: choose in which pages this block can be displayed.
