Support » Plugin: Block Lab » Query with with block_value() unexpected results

  • Resolved Christopher


    I am using multiple block_value()s to run a query using get_posts which shows the expected results in the front end, but in the editor no results are shown and all I get is ‘Loading preview…’

    I anyone can help with where I am going wrong would be much appreciated – I am finding Gutenberg a steep learning curve, though Block Lab is great an almost brought it within reach of my limited and novice coding.

    Many thanks,

    Hi Christopher! Yes, this is a known issue, introduced with the latest Gutenberg update. We’ll have a fix out early in the week.
