    I’m seeing some very nice post list/grid blocks in the plugins section, but they are all meant to be used in a single page and limited to a specific number of posts. Is it possible to assign such a block to be used by a specific template like archives or category?

    Thinking ahead it would be ideal if one could create a page layout with blocks in a new WP page, and then assign it to be used as the themes default post/page/archive page etc. I guess this means using blocks as a theme builder.

    Indeed, you are right, making an entire page with blocks would require a page/theme builder.

    The latest posts block can be used on any page, but the default archive page still depend on the theme, and the theme needs to implement a grid layout for the posts.

    Plus the block does not paginate yet so it cannot really replace archive pages.

    Moved to Fixing WordPress, this is not an Everything else WordPress topic. I’ve also moved Jack’s other topics for the same reason.
