Content Blocks Builder


This is NOT another block library. This plugin help developers/users do three things:

  1. To create custom blocks from core blocks or third-party blocks. It supports repeater blocks like the ACF repeater field.
  2. To create custom block patterns.
  3. To create custom block variations.

Support layouts/features for the custom blocks:
✓ Grid layout
✓ Carousel layout
✓ Some responsive features such as custom height, spacing, text-alignment, vertical-alignment
✓ Media background with animation, parallax effect

Upcoming layouts/features:
☐ Pre-defined blocks


  • Custom blocks, patterns, variations can be created via "More Options" on Block's toolbar.

  • The modal popup to create custom blocks from "More Options", only some blocks (group, cover, columns) support this feature.

  • Create custom blocks from the admin menu.

  • Edit a custom block.

  • Show settings panel for custom blocks.

  • Full settings panel for custom blocks.

  • The modal popup to create patterns from "More Options", only some blocks (group, cover, columns) support this feature.

  • Create patterns from the admin menu.

  • List all custom patterns.

  • The modal popup to create variations from "More Options", it's the only way to create variations.

  • List all custom variations.


  1. Upload the plugin files to the /wp-content/plugins/content-blocks-builder directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress


Who needs this plugin?

Both developers and users can use it. I often use it to create custom repeater blocks, patterns, variations for my client sites.

Is this another block library?

No. It’s like a tool to create custom blocks, patterns, variations without coding.

Does it support pre-defined layouts / style?

Supports three layouts: Grid, carousel, default vertical stack

I've been searching years for something like this to come out and finally! A practical and functional plugin that enhances gutenburg usability. How can not one single plugin out of thousands allow us to create 1 custom block out of a group of blocks? And with one single click? The built in re-usable blocks to me are useless. Thank you to whoever created this! You are a true genius.
