  • It would be useful if super admins could disable specific blocks for users. At colleges, when don’t want our students to have complete access to submit content directly to our servers. Therefore, if we could disable blocks such as the file or embedding blocks, it would be beneficial for all.

    Understand that “blocks” are generally entirely client side. Even if you turn them off, what they are submitting isn’t limited or restricted to what the blocks generate.

    Basically, the blocks create HTML to put into the post_content, but the actual submission is just that HTML. The blocks happen in the browser, not on the server. They are still submitting a big-box-of-text just like with the old editor. It’s an editor, not a system that is fully integrated throughout the whole system.

    So, disabling blocks is not a security measure by any possible stretch of the imagination.
