Feature Plugin: WP Ultimo Blocks

Since version 5.0, WordPress has a new editor experience: Gutenberg (now simply called the Block Editor). It completely replaces the old post edit screen and adds a new block-based interface. I’m sure you all have seen it, but just in case you were living under a rock over the past few months, here’s what it looks like:

Introducing WP Ultimo Blocks

Gutenberg is a really exciting tool and despite the controversies surrounding its development (a whole different discussion), it opens a lot of cool opportunities and we are eager to experiment on those.

WP Ultimo Blocks is a new Feature Plugin that basically ports our shortcodes to blocks, which you can then use on Gutenberg pages.

Pricing Table

You can add pricing tables on your Gutenberg pages, selecting which plans you want to display and which colors to use.

Template List

In a similar manner, you can add a Template List block, displaying your available templates. You can select the number of columns, if you want to display the title and filter bar, and, most importantly, which templates you want to appear.

Restrict Content

Now you also have a slick interface to manage restrict content in your main site, check out the demo below!

Notes

This is still pretty experimental, that’s why it is being released as a Feature Plugin. We would love to hear what you think, though! Let us know if you have any ideas about what blocks we can build next!
