How do I create a reusable block in WordPress?

All blocks can be saved individually as a reusable block:

  1. Create a new post or edit an existing one. On the post edit screen, click on the add new block button and then choose a block type according to the content you are going to save.
  2. After adding the block, add the content that you want to reuse. Use the styling and formatting options in the block toolbar and block settings.
  3. Once you are done editing, click on the three-dot menu button in the toolbar and then select Add to Reusable Blocks option.
  4. You will be asked to enter a name for the reusable block; we recommend using a name that helps you quickly identify the block and what it does.
  5. Finally, click on the Save button to store your reusable block. Your block will be saved (stored at the Reusable tab - see below).

Adding a reusable block to other posts and pages

  1. Create a new post or edit a post where you want to add the reusable block. On the post edit screen, click on the add new block button.
  2. Your reusable block is located under the Reusable tab. You can also find it by typing its name in the search box.
  3. Hover over it to see a quick preview of the block.
  4. Click on the block to insert it into your post. Your reusable block will appear in the post editor.
  5. You can also edit the reusable block by clicking on the edit button on the block.

NOTE: Changing a reusable block will change it on all locations where you have used it.

If you want to make a change that only appears on this particular post, convert the reusable block to a regular block first. Click on the three-dot menu in the block toolbar and then select the Convert to Regular Block option.

This will convert your reusable block into a regular block, and you will be able to make changes to it without affecting the original reusable block.
