How to Use the Plugin

After installing and activating the plugin, you should see a new Block Patterns menu item in your WordPress admin. From that point, you can create a new pattern just like you would any post or page. The process is as follows, which may help you.

  1. Click on the Block Patterns menu item in the sidebar admin menu.
  2. Click on the Add New button.
  3. Give a name for your pattern
  4. Start writing code in the Pattern Content section or click on Insert Pattern Content from Directory to insert any blocks you want to be part of your pattern.
  5. There are a few more fields to modify or you can leave as default.
  6. Publish the pattern (once you publish a pattern, it will be available within the pattern library)
  7. Go to any post or page (existing or new one)
  8. Locate your pattern in the Block Inserter under the pattern tab and click on it.
  9. After clicking on the icon, you should see your custom pattern in the pattern library/list. Click on it. It will be inserted into your post
  10. All contained blocks are now independent from the original pattern and can be edited as any regular block.
