Description


This plugin creates a new ‘text-blocks’ custom post type with it’s own section in the WordPress admin sidebar. It uses the standard WordPress user interface so you and your clients will know how to use it instantly.

New in Version 1.5: Variables! You can add {{player}} to your text block content and then pass in ‘player’ to the shortcode: [text-blocks id=”1″ player=”Hal Gatewood”]

You can add it to your site in three ways:

1. Widget

The included widget allows you to specify which block you want to insert. You can also include a title if needed.

2. Widget

[text-blocks id="1"] or [text-blocks id="text_block_slug"]

3. PHP Function

A PHP function has been setup so you do not have to use the do_shortcode function.

<?php if(function_exists('show_text_block')) { echo show_text_block(421); } ?>
<?php if(function_exists('show_text_block')) { echo show_text_block('slug'); } ?>

+ Jason's Comments

I started using Reusable Text Blocks plugin when in August 2016 Global Content Blocks plugin was removed from the WordPress repository.

More recently I switched to using Reusable Content & Text Blocks by Loomisoft for it’s compatibility with page builders.
