Support » Plugin: Bulk Block Converter » Shortcode block missing the shortcode

  • Resolved Mr Tibbs


    I tested this plugin. I cannot use this plugin since it does not insert the pre-existing shortcodes into the new GB shortcode block. After converting a post or a page with a shortcode in the Classic block, the new GB shortcode block is missing the shortcode.

    Can you fix this, please? I want to be able to use this plugin since I have over 1,000 posts to convert to GB.

    I am using the latest version of WordPress and the built-in Block Editor.

    Thank you for sharing such a great plugin!

    Hello @mtibesar,

    The plugin relies on the core Gutenberg block conversion functionality. Meaning, the plugin doesn’t actually process the conversion, Gutenberg does. The Bulk Block Converter plugin simply makes it possible to convert multiple posts and pages at once from a single interface. As a result, the issue is with the way Gutenberg handles the conversion.

    The same issue occurs without the plugin installed, when navigating to a page that has shortcodes contained within a “Classic” block, and then choosing the option to convert to blocks.

    If the issue is a concern, opening a support ticket with Gutenberg and/or WordPress might be the best course of action,

    If this was an issue with the plugin itself, we would work to resolve the issue. Unfortunately, the issue is a core issue that the plugin cannot address. Maybe if enough of us let WordPress know this is an issue, they will push a fix in core.
