What are blocks?
The qodeblock plugin is a collection of "blocks" for the new WordPress block editor, also known as Gutenberg. Blocks are chunks of content such as paragraphs, images, galleries, columns, and more. Building with blocks gives you more control to quickly create and launch any kind of site you want!
Basically, blocks are any content that you insert into the post or post of your blog. The functionality of the old editor was more like Microsoft Word - it was possible to work only with text. To add a video, button or photo gallery to an article, you had to search for a suitable plugin or write HTML yourself.
The Gutenberg editor has a modular structure. Now every paragraph, heading or illustration is a separate block. The new editor has several default blocks, such as paragraphs, images, gallery, and more. With qodeblock, you get additional blocks that can help you create even more dynamic posts and pages. The qodelocks includes the following blocks:
- Inline Notices
- Author Profile
- Drop Cap
- Sharing Icons
- Call To Action
- Post & Page Grid
- Email Newsletter
- Advanced Columns
A detailed rundown of each editor block can be found below.
