Tag: Gutenberg Blocks

Gutenberg landed in WordPress in 2018. This changed the WordPress posts screen from a simple box of text to a more advanced drag-and-drop content creator.

The Gutenberg editor uses a block-based system to provide flexibility with how content is displayed. This allows you to use blocks to easily add text, images, multimedia content, code, quote, buttons, and much more.

Block Access Allows You to Control Blocks for User Roles

Block Access

“Block Access” is one of the most popular features in the PublishPress Blocks plugin. This feature allows you to control which blocks are available to different user roles.

For example, if you want to prevent some user roles from adding “Table” blocks, you can block them from doing that with this feature.

In version 2.10 of Blocks, we've simplified the “Block Access” feature. The system is now based on user roles and is very similar to the PublishPress Capabilities plugin.

  • To get started, go to “Blocks”, then “Block Access”.
  • In the top-left corner, you can choose the user role you want to edit.

The List Block and the Advanced List Block

List Block

One of the things I love about WordPress is that the project has a clearly-stated philosophy. One of the principles is to design for 80% of users and leave plugins to fill in the more advanced features.

This is happening with the Gutenberg block editor. Many developers are adding extra features on top of the default blocks.

Inside the PublishPress Blocks plugin, the Advanced List block is based on the default List block in Gutenberg.

The Gutenberg team have done the hard work. We're standing on their shoulders.

If you want to show lists in WordPress, both the List block and the Advanced List block are a great choice.

The Advanced List Block has functionality that the extra 20% of WordPress users may find helpful. If you are a WordPress power user, you'll want to check out these features, especially the custom icons for list items.
