My Favourite Block, by Herb Miller. Annotated with the WordPress blocks used and a screen capture of each block in the editor.
I’m attending WordCamp London in April. Once again, I’m volunteering. So I won’t be able to attend all the sessions. These are the ones that I would choose if I were not otherwise occupied with volunteering duties.
In previous years I’ve written a bucket list for things I want to achieve while attending WordCamp London. This year I already have 9 items. I’m sure I’ll find the 10th very soon.
I’m testing the latest version of oik-blocks on my iPhone. The Blocklist block below is displaying a list of all the blocks with the namespace prefix oik-block. Some of these blocks were written specifically to help me to populate blocks.wp-a2z.org

Some of these blocks are duplicated many times by other plugins. Some of the other plugins provide better versions of the blocks. But, rather than drop my blocks, I’ll continue to enhance my versions while the Defacto standard for a particular block has not been set.
Of course, I won’t know which is the best version until I’ve catalogued them all. it’s going to take some time and i hope it’s going to be worth it.
follow my progress at the
Which blocks have a colour selector and how many are right/wrong?
Shouldn’t this be a block example!
Note: dry-run parameter is not prefixed with `–`.
Does anyone still use RSS? It’s a new block in Gutenberg 5.0
A poem about Gutenberg blocks for the new block editor.
Here we go then. I’m in the pub and have just updated to Wordpress 5.0.1.
I started writing this post on my iphone.
My own blocks didn’t seem to work properly. I investigated later. After I’d upgraded oik-blocks to the latest version, everything was fine on my laptop.
With Classic Editor v1.3 per post switching between editors can be done using the Default editor current user Meta Box.
