How to Use Block Access

Using the PublishPress Blocks plugin, you can create editor profiles for different user roles.

These profiles allow you to control which users can add which Gutenberg blocks. For example, if you want to prevent some users from adding “Table” blocks, you can block them from doing that with this feature.

You can select which blocks in the Blocks list will be available to each profile.


Customize your user profile

To get started, go to “Blocks”, then “Block Access”. In the top-left corner, you can choose the user role you want to edit. You can uncheck the boxes for any block you don't want them to access.

You can enable/disable blocks in Gutenberg by clicking on them. When you're finished, click the “Save Block Access” button to update the user role.

Once saved, the blocks will be available (or not available) in your editor when the user creates posts.

Tip: if you want to disable or enable all the blocks at once, use “Enable or disable all blocks” toggle, taking in consideration at least one block must be enabled in order to save the configuration.
