Support » Plugin: Block Lab » Adding a post field repeating block to the sidebar

    I’m not sure if this is more of a WordPress question but how would I go about adding say a post field to the sidebar of single posts and picking different block content for different posts? If this is more of a WordPress question, please feel free to point me in the right direction or recommend the best implementation. If I have to install a sidebar plugin, would you have a recommendation? Thanks in advance.

    Hi @bluestcube,

    …how would I go about adding say a post field to the sidebar of single posts and picking different block content for different posts?

    Thanks for bringing this up!

    That’s a tough one, as the block editor at least so far doesn’t really work in the sidebar. That would traditionally be for widgets, though there are plans to make that block-based as well.

    Maybe a widget plugin would help, especially if it conditionally displayed them based on the post. Though it sounds like you were looking to use blocks, not widgets.
