You may store a block (or a set of blocks) to use later in any post or page on your site by using reusable blocks. If you frequently add the same material to the same block or set of blocks, reusable blocks will save you a significant amount of time.
Create a Reusable Block #
You can turn any individual block or group of blocks into a reusable block. As an example, let’s say you have a Paragraph block that you often fill with the same text and place at the end of your posts. To avoid rewriting the same content each time, you can make this content into a reusable block by following these steps:
- Select the block you’ll want to reuse.
- Click on the three dots that appear in the toolbar.
- Click on Add to Reusable blocks.
- Give it a name.
- Click Publish and then Save.
After you add a reusable block, you can identify it by its name in the following four places in the editor:
Group Multiple Blocks into a Reusable Block #
A reusable block doesn’t need to be just one block. It can be a group of blocks! In the following example, we’ll create a reusable block out of two paragraph blocks.
Add Reusable Blocks to Your Content #
To add a reusable block that you have already created, click on the + Block Inserter icon and select the Reusable tab. Click the block to add it to the post or page.
Edit a Reusable Block #
If you’d like to edit a reusable block in all the places on your site, add the reusable block and edit it by adding more paragraphs or other types of blocks. When you’re done with the changes, click the Publish button and then the Save button.
