With the 5.0 update, WordPress has finally changed its 14 years old Classic Editor. They have introduced a new enticing editor named Block Editor (aka Gutenberg Editor).

The block editor contains some default blocks like Paragraph, Image, Gallery, Quote, List, Cover, Video, and more.

One of their cool blocks is the section block like the one in the atomic blocks plugin, which enables you to build columns and different layouts as you like in the Gutenberg editor. You get to start right away with the layout that you want.

Premium Blocks is one of the new players, and it is improving rapidly, providing you with different block options to get the most out of the Gutenberg editor.

The developer made sure to focus on the performance part rather than fill it with useless features, which I really like. You can also disable the ones you won’t use. It is also translation ready, something not mentioned in other plugins.

9. Getwid

  • Save

Created by the team at MotoPress, Getwid is on the other spectrum where there are a lot of blocks to choose from.

It has 24 blocks already available with different customization options to make sure that there is no block you would want that you won’t find available. They created this plugin to make it is easier to stick with the Gutenberg editor than go to a page builder.

So, what are the blocks already available that would make it easier not to use the Elementor page builder?

  • Section Block
  • Advanced Heading Block
  • Google Maps Block
  • Icon Block
  • Icon Box Block
  • Image Box Block
  • Social Links Block
  • Banner Block
  • Image Slider Block
  • Media & Text Slider Block
  • Button Group Block

  • Image Stack Gallery Block
  • Testimonial Block
  • Recent Posts Block
  • Advanced Spacer Block
  • Instagram Block
  • Counter Block
  • Price Box Block
  • Progress Bar Block
  • Circular Progress Bar Block

Many of these can be found already in other plugins, and some are unique. Many of them may be useless to you as they’re not applicable or practical for your business, and that is why I said it is more on the other spectrum where it is packed with more features.

But for many, it may be perfect, especially those who want to have a lot of options to make sure they optimize their post as they want.

10. Qubely

It is perfect for people who are obsessed with details and want to make sure the post appears perfectly. It may not be the best fit for bloggers. If you can benefit from most of these blocks, then grab it. If not, pick a simpler one.
