Support » Plugin: Block Lab » Game changer

  • This plugin is a game changer if you want to use the Gutenberg Editor. I’d go as far as saying that this plugin is even a requirement. Before Gutenberg, Shortcodes were the way to add custom elements to the content. Blocks are their evolution in Gutenberg, with many advantages in terms as editing WYSIWYG, data handling etc. However with a big disadvantage which is that it is not easy to create a block by yourself (on top of PHP, you need to know about REST, Javascript etc). Don’t judge my developer skills, but I didnt manage to set up a simple block myself.
    That’s where Block Lab comes in. With Block Lab, creating the backend entry form is drag&drop without a single line of code. You only code the output in PHP (and CSS), and a simple block can be a one-liner.
    As a result, we now have approx. 10 blocks live, setting up a post is now much faster, leaner and – above all – clearer. Before using Blocks, we entered a lot of information as we wanted, even for repetitive information (e.g. an FAQ). Now we have an FAQ block that we just fill and the output always looks the same.

    I highly recommend this plugin to any developer or skilled wordpress user. We use the Pro version and wouldn’t downgrade.

    Please note that you need basic PHP skills to run it.
