Creating Reusable Blocks in WordPress 5.0

Creating a reusable block is great. It allows you to quickly add the same type of content to a new post or page without having to copy / paste from other places.

To create a new reusable block:

  • Create a new block and format it as you’d like
  • Click on the three dots in the editor bar and select reusable block

To use a reusable block:

  • Add a new block and scroll to the reusable block section (at the bottom)
  • Select the block and it will be added to your post

To modify a reusable block:

  • Click on the edit button inside the block and make the changes
  • Note: all blocks site wide will update with changes

To have a different reusable block:

  • Add new reusable block to your post or page
  • Convert to regular block
  • Make edits to block
  • Now when the block is updated, this one will stay the same
