9 Best Gutenberg Blocks Plugins for WordPress

Gutenberg Blocks

A few days ago, we were helping one of our clients. While looking for the best Gutenberg Blocks plugin that was perfect for him, we came across a lot of good plugins, but just as many were really painful.

We wanted to make this guide in a professional way (as usual after all), testing the plugins first and then talking about it. Too many articles I found with plugins not updated in years, or where there were more 1-star reviews than positive reviews.

Things to know about Gutenberg Blocks

Are you one of those like us who decided to switch to Gutenberg? Know that in December 2020 it will be revolutionized, in fact with WordPress 5.6 , many Gutenberg Blocks and many other things concerning Gutenberg will be added.

But for now, there is none of that, so you need the additional Gutenberg Blocks if you want to improve the user experience.

There are two kinds of mindset when it comes to Add-on Blocks:

  1. Single blocks : which are composed of a single function such as Google Maps or Table of Contents . To tell the truth there are many more plugins that do this, just write the name on WordPress and you will find one that suits your needs.
  2. Block Libraries : These plugins combine all the best features into one.

Today we will focus on the latter. Our advice is to have at most 2 of these plugins, you don’t need more, otherwise the articles will take too long to load.

Having made this long introduction, let’s get started!

Gutentor

Gutentor

Gutentor is the plugin we ultimately chose for our client. Why? It truly is the best. If you are used to Page Builder like Elementor or Divi, then you will be really happy with it. It is compatible with any theme and plugin.

This plugin adds a large variety of beautiful blocks and themes to the Gutenberg editor that can be later modified to build and design your best web pages in minutes.

Gutentor is a lightweight WordPress plugin optimized for SEO performance.

The function that will make you appreciate this plugin the most is the one that allows you to put everything you want inside the sidebar (Widget). Have you seen those few sites where they have a modern bar, with colors and many other functions?

With Gutentor you can do it. Trust me, this feature alone is worth a try.

It is really very difficult to explain all the functions it has, because it has more of it than all the other plugins combined. I finally summarized them in some columns. So I hope to simplify your choice.

It is very reminiscent of Elementor in how it is made. In a nutshell you will have to choose between one, two up to a maximum of 6 columns. In there you can drag everything that interests you.

The Gutenberg Blocks it offers are exceptional and well made. I really liked the fact that you can move blocks not only in the center or sideways like you normally do on Gutenberg, but you can drag them to 20% of the screen.

Conclusions

I will have tested over 50 plugins, but these I think are the best in every respect.

The first 3 I could recommend with my eyes closed to anyone. They are much better than a lot of plugins in the ranking.

Gutentor is a plugin that we have recently added to our site and you will see it working shortly. Especially for its compatibility with Widgets. We have so many ideas in mind.

Qubely instead we will definitely use it for some clients. It is very versatile and the layouts are truly spectacular. I know the developers of that plugin and love their site.

They are as sick as we are of consistency in design and speed. So these are the 2 plugins that I recommend the most.

While trying the plugins, I came across some for WooCommerce, but I noticed that they slowed down websites excessively. But I think they may work for some of you.

If you want a ranking on the best WooCommerce block plugins, comment, same thing if you have further doubts.
