Using Block Patterns

Using Gutenberg

Running Time:  6:47

Block Patterns are pre-built mini-templates which can be inserted into any page or post. The patterns you can use are based on which theme you are using.

Once the pattern is added you can change it to meet your design needs. You’ll see me do this in the video.

What’s more, you can save what you create with a block pattern and use it for other pages or posts with the Reusable Block.

Using The Gutenberg Template Library

Templates are very much a part of Gutenberg’s future.

Using a template will save you a lot of time and is a real benefit if you don’t have the design chops you think you need to make an awesome web site.

While you can create your own templates with reusable blocks as I show in How To Make And Work With A Template you can get templates rather than build one yourself.

One such resource that lets you copy any template with just a single click is GutenbergHub’s Gutenberg Template Library which is what I demonstrate in this video.

Reusing A Template On Another Site

Using Gutenberg

Running Time:  3:54

One of the most hidden yet useful features of Gutenberg is the ability to crate a template that you can use on other sites.

After you make a template you can use the export/import feature of the block editor (Gutenberg) to transfer a template you’ve made to another site.

This is a huge time saver because once you create a template you can use it not just on the site in which it was made but any other site as well.

If you’re not sure how to make a template see my other videos:

How To Make An Intra-Page Linke

Using Gutenberg

Running Time:  3:47

Creating a link to content within a page is not exactly intuitive with the Gutenberg page editor.

My video shows you how to create a link within a page. This is commonly known as an intra-page or named target link. This allows users to tap a link and move to a different spot on the same page.

At the time of this recording only Heading elements (h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6) can be used as links. It’s entirely possible that by the time you see this video content types such as a single word, a list item and an image will also be able to be used as a link within a page.

If you’re familiar with the Classic Editor you’ll be comfortable using Gutenberg. Adding images is done through the image block.

As always, make sure to specify an alternative text description for every image you add to a page or post. Your page will not pass the most basic accessibility text unless you do.

What is not obvious is a new and cool way to add an image to your page. You’ll just have to watch the movie to see what I mean.
