Support » Requests and Feedback » Allow naming blocks without making them reusable

  • In the Gutenberg editor all visual feedback regarding the current selected block has been removed. It is very hard to navigate through blocks.

    The Block Tree is quite handy, but it gets confusing when you have groups inside columns inside more groups.

    It would be nice that each Block could have a “Name” attribute, so that the Block Tree displays the name and it gets easier to handle stuff. I may edit a landing page today, create a bunch of blocks and come next week to edit something and find the exact block I want to edit just by looking at the names.

    This is NOT about reusable blocks, which already do have the possibility to be named.

  • This won’t be seen by the developers.
    You should either ask in the plugin’s support forum (which likely won’t be seen by developers either) or open an issue in the Gutenberg repository. https://github.com/WordPress/gutenberg/issues/

    Thanks for your answer, @joyously

    For the sake of curiosity. Why is this Forum called “Requests” if it’s not the right place to make Requests?

    This forum was created long ago, and things evolve.
    These are support forums, not development forums. Requests here should be about support.
    You can certainly make requests here, but I’m just letting you know that the developers do not have the time to read these forums.

    Thanks @joyously for your help and good intentions. It would be nice to rename this forum [Requests and Feedback] to make it clearer. If you know where I can ask for this, I will do that. Evolution is nice. Accompained by upgrading old to new it’s even better!

    What would be a better name, given that the main level is under Support?
    Anything to do with the .org website is handled in Meta Trac: https://meta.trac.wordpress.org/

    @joyously A better name would be one that does not make it seem like this is the right place to make requests.

    Current name and description:

    Requests and Feedback Forum
    “Feature requests and criticism”

    Since this is not anymore the place to make requests (because things evolved) it could simply be called “Criticism” to debate about ideas before jumping into opening a GH issue.
