If your website shows the same content on multiple pages it’s best to just keep one copy of this content and to edit that if you need to make site-wide changes.
The Blocksolid Snippets plugin lets you manage these “snippets” of content using a dedicated custom post type.
In the Classic Editor Snippets can be conjured using a simple shortcode such as:
[blocksolid_snippet post_title=”My Snippet”]
If you use Gutenberg our included Snippets block allows you to choose your snippet from a list and live-preview it within your page.
Your snippet can contain formatted text, images, videos, [shortcodes], HTML, gutenberg blocks, any valid WordPress content.
If you are using our separate Blocksolid plugin as a page builder and Gutenberg overlay the Blocksolid Snippets plugin also integrates well with this.
Blocksolid Snippets Features
- Snippets of code are contained in a custom post type that can then be called via a Gutenberg block or a simple shortcode
This plugin provides 1 block.
Install the plugin using the WordPress ‘Add New plugin’ functionality and activate.
Once activated a new Snippets menu item will appear in your WordPress menu to allow you to create new snippets of content.
Give each of your snippets a unique title e.g. “My Snippet”.
You can then call your snippet via a short code like [blocksolid_snippet post_title=”My Snippet”]
if you use the built-in Gutenberg block editor for your website you can use the plugin’s bespoke ‘Snippets’ block to place the snippet within your content.
The Snippets block give you a live preview of your snippet within the Gutenberg editor.
