- Gutenberg 10.6.0 contains 177 blocks and block variations.
- Over 35 of these are new for Full Site Editing.
- Some blocks that have been delivered require improvements / fixes to make them equivalent to the PHP template functions that they replace.
- Many are being constantly improved.
Getting your requirements heard
Search for block requirements in the official GitHub repositories: projects, issues and even PR’s.
If the requirement is not there, and you believe it should be a core block, then raise a Feature Request.
If there’s already a block, but it doesn’t have the functionality you need, then raise new requirements.
Be as detailed as possible to satisfy your requirement while allowing some flexibility so that it may also satisfy other people’s requirements.
