If you have ever searched for a specific block in the Gutenberg block editor, then you’ve seen the WordPress Block Directory and may not have even known it. Introduced in version 5.5 and enhanced in WordPress 5.8 with patterns, the Block Directory works very similarly to the theme or plugin repositories at WordPress.org. The difference being this one is built directly into the editor itself for easy access and installation of single blocks. Using the block directory, you can add new features, designs, layouts, and custom blocks to your posts and pages using a single click—all from inside the block editor itself.
