Support » Fixing WordPress » Can I assign a list or grid posts block to an archive template?

  • Jack


    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.

    I forgot about the pagination ;).
