Genesis Custom Blocks


Genesis Custom Blocks provides WordPress developers with the tools they need to take control of the block-first reality of modern WordPress.

The WordPress block editor (AKA Gutenberg) opens up a whole new world for the way we build pages, posts, and websites with WordPress. Genesis Custom Blocks makes it easy to harness this and build custom blocks the way you want them to be built. Whether you want to implement a custom design, deliver unique functionality, or even remove your dependence on other plugins, Genesis Custom Blocks equips you with the tools you need to hit “Publish” sooner.

Take control of design – Implement beautiful, custom designs with fine-tuned front-end templating control.

Build unique functionality – Build blocks that function and behave exactly as you need.

Extend & Integrate – Easily extend your custom blocks to integrate with third-party apps and plugins.


A Familiar Experience

Work within the WordPress admin with an interface you already know.

Block Fields

Add from a growing list of available fields to your custom blocks.

Simple Templating

Let the plugin do the heavy lifting so you can use the built-in editor, or familiar WordPress development practices to build block templates.

As an alternative to the built-in editor, there are simple functions, ready to render and work with the data stored through your custom block fields.

नेहमी विचारले जाणारे प्रश्न

Do I need to work with the Genesis Framework or any of the other Genesis plugins/themes to use this plugin?

No. You can use this plugin completely independently. All you need is to have the block editor enabled on your WordPress site.

Do I need to change to the new built-in Template Editor in /wp-admin?

No. You can keep using your PHP block templates like block-example.php.

This is exactly what I needed. I can make my own Gutenberg blocks with JS, PHP, and HTML without having to learn Node.js, React, and Redux (really Wordpress?). I plan on learning these, but need a solution right away. The only thing I wish is you could add your own icons for blocks. I have to dock 1 star because of the pricing of the paid subscription. $360 USD/ year for Genesis Pro? That’s insane guys. I want to support you, but that’s insane. I pay much less than that for leading media production software. I pay 1/3 that for a complete page builder that does so much more than Genesis Pro plus includes a clipart sub also. Your competitors are also about 1/3 the price. I’d be willing to pay $360 for a lifetime sub, not yearly. For Genesis Custom Blocks specifically I’d pay $49 – $99 / year if it was being actively developed.

Thanks for the great plugin! Couple of questions…I see there is a way to include a .css file along with the .php file in the blocks folder inside the theme. However, is there also a way to enqueue a .js file with the block as well? Also, is there a quick way inside of php to determine if the user is access the block from the preview or from the front end? I know that there is the ability to create a separate preview php file, but the reason I ask is because there may be some cases where I literally only have a slight difference between the preview and live block and it would be nice to be able to write a conditional into the block php rather than copying all of the code and maintaining two separate files. Thanks, Wil

Great tool for creating custom blocks. Interface is well designed and intuitive. I’m sure the author is aware that there’s another competing custom block plugin that offers features not available in the Genesis Custom Blocks free version. While I don’t mind paying for a commercial version to get the full feature set, having to pay for the pro plugin as part of a Genesis package that includes other things I don’t need which costs a whopping $360 a year is a major turn off. I’d suggest selling the pro plugin as a separate product for a reasonable fee.

With this great plugin you create – even in the free version – custom blocks on your page in the easiest way. And now that it’s compatible again, I love it again.
