Pattern – core/block

( Not insertable )

Create and save content to reuse across your site. Update the pattern, and the changes apply everywhere it’s used.

The Pattern allows content to be created and shared between posts.



A pattern ( previously called reusable block) is one that you’ve created yourself and saved for re-use using Create pattern.


  • Patterns (aka reusable blocks) are stored as posts with a custom post type of wp_block.
  • You can see and edit your patterns using the Manage patterns link in the Options > Tools section.
  • A Pattern’s block’s icon indicates the original block’s type.
