Block Navigation

Descripció

DemoDocumentationGitHub

Block Navigation provides a sidebar with the current post/page’s blocks and some tools to facilitate the editing process in the new Gutenberg editor.

Features

The features are especially useful for nested blocks – blocks that are inside parent blocks which are difficult to select or move in the editor.

Inside the panel several utilities are included to enhance the UX, such as:

  • Dragging blocks to a different location
  • Moving blocks by click
  • Selecting blocks
  • Easily recognising the block from a small snippet of the block’s content

The user can select a dark or light color scheme, from the multiple included.

Plugin and Theme developers

The plugin also provides some features for Plugin and Theme developers, such as:

  • Click and Copy the block’s clientId
  • Click to console.log helpful data from the block

Usage

Inside the Post editor on the right side of the top Block’s Toolbar the plugin icon/button should appear (if not, please read the FAQ below).
Click the icon/button to open the plugin sidebar.

  • Dragging a block to a different position.
  • Block menu.

Instal·lació

Installation from the WordPress admin.

  1. Log in to the WordPress admin and navigate to Plugins > Add New.
  2. Type “Block Navigation” in the Search field.
  3. In the results list Block Navigation plugin should appear, click Install Now button.
  4. Once it finished installing, click the Activate button.
  5. That’s it, now you can go to any post where Gutenberg is enabled and start using the plugin.

PMF

I do not see the plugin icon in the post editor

Alternatively the Plugin can be opened from the Show More button (the 3 dots on the right side of the Editor Top Bar).
Click the More button and inside the menu list click on the plugin name “Block Navigation”.

Coming from Elementor I think that a navigator is a really helpful feature for a pagebuilder. Per default Gutenberg unfortunately does not provide such feature. This is where this plugin comes in very handy.

I install in all Gutenberg sites. Very useful when editing page, no bugs so far. Thank you

It should be part of core WordPress. Could have more features (like renaming elements, when it's a complex layout tree, sometimes I can get lost a bit), but it's already essential for me.

I honestly don't know how I'd work with Gutenberg without this, or if I did it would be significantly more annoying. Block Navigation is indispensable, nay supercalifragilisticexpealidocious!
