What is Advanced Gutenberg Blocks?

AGB brings new blocks for the new WordPress editor and a settings page to configure them.


Blew Up the Site I Am Developing

I have no idea what the problem is, but I installed the AGB plugin from WordPress and all the blocks I had been working on were no longer what they had been. Sizes of images, justification, text sizes, etc.

Using Verbosa theme.

Trying to resize an image on a page was difficult — the image size displayed in Edit bore no relationship to the preview image size.

Formerly left-justified paragraphs were now centered.

When I uninstalled the AGB plugin, everything went back to normal. Nuf said.

Plugin breaks layout (alas)

After installing several Gutenberg blocks-related plugins I noticed that my 2 columns layouts were broken on a number of websites I used as guinea-pigs. By a careful process of elimination, I found that Advanced Gutenberg Blocks was the culprit. When it is activated, my 2 column layout breaks, and is simply rendered as a vertical sequence of blocks. When I deactivate it, the columns fall neatly into place again.
I like the idea and functionality of the plugin, so I won’t be too harsh by giving it only one star, but this issue should be fixed before I activate the plugin again and raise the number of stars.
The maker(s) should consider this review as constructive criticism.

Really good plugin !!!

Great job!

Very good idea the management of active blocks

It just lacks a block “section” to group several blocks with a css class and id to make me abandon pages builders
