How to Create a Reusable Block

Reusable blocks are a great way to create efficiency in designing your website. Creating a reusable block is pretty easy. Just follow these steps.

In the block editor, once you have a styled block (or multiple blocks) that you want to turn into a reusable block, select it/them. Be sure to select the entire block and not just a block inside of your section.

Now, that same reusable block can be made available across different pages in your site. If you edit one, you’ll change all the pages that use the reusable block.
