Reusable Block – core/block

Create content, and save it for you and other contributors to reuse across your site. Update the block, and the changes apply everywhere it’s used.

The Reusable Block allows content to be created and shared between posts.



A reusable block is one that you’ve created yourself and saved for re-use using Add to Reusable Blocks.


  • Reusable blocks are stored as posts with a custom post type of wp_block.
  • You can see and edit your reusable blocks using the Manage All Reusable Blocks link in the Reusable section displayed for the Add block pull down.
  • A reusable block’s icon indicates the original block’s type.
