Hi everyone! It’s Evin here😜 I hope you’re having a great day so far! Welcome back to Living the Blogging Life!
and in this post, I thought I’d share a new thing I learnt on WordPress a while ago when I was experimenting with the block editor!
and it’s called ~ RE-USABLE BLOCKS.
What exactly is a re-usable block?
A reusable block in WordPress editor is a content block saved individually to be used later.
Reusable blocks are usually used for adding your socials, or something that you add in majority of your posts. If you use the same intro or outro for your blog posts, then this can block can be super useful!
How do I create a reusable block?
- Select the text you want to reuse.
Let’s say I’m going to use my intro from this post for my NEXT post as well. like this:
after you do that, you click on the three dots that appear on the top:
Click on “More options”
They may appear somewhere else, like here:
after you click on that, you’ll find an option called “Add to reusable blocks” Click on that.
After you click on that option, you’ll see this:
Name your block.
and save it.
Okay, now I’ve created a reusable block. But how do I use it?
That’s quite simple! Since my the reusable block I created is an INTRO, I can’t use it in this post. so I created a new draft,
And it’s called PoTaTo for no reason.
To use A REUSABLE BLOCK, you click on “add block” which is the plus mark you see.
And search. I named my block “LTBL intro”
Now, after you find your block and click on it,
and it appears!!
That is how you CREATE & USE a Reusable block. I hope this was helpful!!
and I’ll see you next time on LiViNg ThE bLogGiNg LiFe!!
