3 New WordPress Blocks Added To The Organic Blocks Bundle

The Toggle Block, Alert Block, and Modal Block are excellent new additions to the Organic Blocks Bundle plugin.

We’re excited to announce the release of 3 new WordPress blocks within the Organic Blocks Bundle plugin. The collection now contains 12 premium blocks for the WordPress Gutenberg editor.

We added the new WordPress blocks to replace some popular shortcodes from the retired Organic Shortcodes plugin. The new blocks are a major improvement over the old shortcodes. Additionally, each new block features several customization options. As a result, the blocks can be styled to match your website design and colors — directly within the Gutenberg editor.

The Toggle Block displays content within an expandable box that may be toggled open or closed. As a result, it’s an excellent tool for creating FAQ and documentation pages.

Modal Block

WordPress Modal Popup Block
The Modal Block displays content above your website content.

The Modal Block displays content within a dismissible pop-up container. Clicking the modal button or text link will reveal the pop-up content. Which then displays above the rest of your website content.

Pop-up modals are a great tool for displaying content that you would like hidden from the rest of the page content. For instance, a contact or newsletter form, or a list of downloadable files.

The Alert Block notifies visitors of important information on your website. It’s a useful tool for notifying visitors of changes, sales, and promotions on your website.

There are two ways of displaying the Alert Block. Directly within your page content, or as a dismissible pop-up upon first loading a page.

  1. Nice work, guys! Keep it up 🙂
    One question: are these blocks a fixed width?
    Or can we make them any width we want?

    • Thanks Sandra! 🙂

      The blocks are sized to the width of your content. However, the blocks support the wide and full width block alignment settings, but those settings are theme dependent. So, your theme must be optimized for Gutenberg in order to take advantage of those full width options (as Organic Themes are). Additionally, the blocks can be sized by adding them within other blocks, like a columns block for instance. If you want a very specific width for each block, currently that can only be achieved by adding CSS.

      Let us know if there is anything else. Thanks!

  2. I just found you at the right time. This is all I needed to start a blog. I loved the fact that you added new WordPress blocks to replace some popular shortcodes from the retired Organic Shortcodes plugin. The very best informative tutorial I have found. Thank you for sharing this.

    • Thanks Mike! The Blocks Bundle plugin is sold separately for $59/yr, which currently includes 12 blocks. However, the blocks plugin is also included in our All Access and Developer memberships.
