This plugin adds flexible Bootstrap 4 blocks to the WordPress editor for creating custom page layouts using the Bootstrap grid.

Are you using Advanced Bootstrap Blocks? Please write a review!


The following Bootstrap components are available:

  • Container (fixed-width or fluid, with background image settings)
  • Row
  • Column
  • Button and Button Group



This plugin provides 3 blocks.

Row (BS4)
Advanced Bootstrap Blocks
Column (BS4)


Does this plugin add Bootstrap styles or scripts to my theme?

This plugin does not add styles or scripts to your website. Necessary Bootstrap 4 will be available in the editor but needs to be added to your theme for these blocks to appear correctly on your public-facing website.

This plugin is giving me trouble. Can you help?

Yes. This plugin is under active development and maintenance–your feedback is important.

... and that's not saying much because the others were broken or terrible. Even still, this one is on the right track, and I'm happy to see that at least somebody is getting it right. Thanks for your hard work!

Great plugin. But. 1. It is impossible to manage many columns col-12, because column container is placed on the right side of previous column. Next column container witch size 12, should be placed under previous col-12 column. 2. It is impossible to move containers between blocks.

Nice work – with this plugin and the power of Bootstrap I am finally convinced using the new Gutenberg Editor.
