Have you ever used WordPress’ new block editor Gutenberg and wished for a way to influence, when and to whom blocks are shown? We’ve been in this situation, that’s why we came up with Block Control. This nifty little plugin allows you to control, whether a block should be displayed under certain circumstances or not. And that’s of course true for both WordPress’ default blocks and blocks added by third-party plugins.
Upload the plugin files to the
/wp-content/plugins/block-control directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress
Now you can use the “Visibility” panel, Block Control adds to every block withing the Gutenberg editor.
How do I use Block Control?
After you install and activate Block Control, you will find a new panel “Visibility” added to every blocks right hand side sidebar. Open the panel to choose a condition for the display of a given block.
Conditional blocks configured this way will only be displayed under certain circumstances chosen by you. Please note, these conditions will only take effect in the front end of your site, not inside the editor itself.
