Support » Plugin: Post Snippets » Blocks/Gutenberg Editor Bug: Can’t fill out variables for post snippets

  • Resolved KZeni


    I have a few post snippets that have variables (ex. post_type=page,depth=0,child_of=0 and label=Learn More,url=, but then the Post Snippet block in the Blocks/Gutenberg editor doesn’t have the variable fields as editable. No matter what, I can’t get it to fill anything into the text fields for the post snippet variables (can’t directly type, can’t copy & paste into it, etc.)

    I then tried to switch to editing the block via HTML, but it oddly showed the snippet’s shortcode as [button label=Learn MoreJ=]… where did J= come into play? I manually set that to then be something like [button label="Learn More" url=""], but then switching back to the block editor said it was broken & needed to recover itself… at which point it went back to the odd output it had before where I then can’t fill in any of the variable fields.

    I first thought it was something with post snippet variables with spaces, but then it also happens for [wp_list_pages post_type="page" depth="0" child_of="10"] (with the defaults not having any spaces or anthing odd) via the blocks editor where it instead has it become something like [wp_list_pages post_type=page8=] somehow.)

    Maybe it’s specific to how it’s parsing the multiple variables, handling shortcodes variables with spaces, something else, or a mixture of things.

    Meanwhile, it appears that selecting & using post snippets that don’t have any variables is working perfectly fine.

    Also, I have other blocks from other plugins being used on the page without issue so it’s not an overall blocks/gutenberg issue from what I can tell (in addition to having a post snippet block being the only block on the page so it shouldn’t be a conflict with other blocks on the page.)

    I look forward to being able to use the blocks of this plugin (with variables) with the Blocks editor. Thanks in advance!
