    oik v4.0.0 finally released

    It’s been nearly 9 years since I first released my oik plugin to wordpress.org

    Today, after many months of procrastination I finally released another update. oik v4.0.0 now embraces the block editor.

    Well, it delivers a number of blocks; 6 in total, though wordpress.org only detected 5.

    Displays your address from oik-options
    Contact form – oik/contact-form

    Google Maps – oik/googlemap

    Shortcode block for oik-shortcodes – oik/shortcode-block
