Welcome back to our series on creating custom blocks with the WordPress Gutenberg Block API. This tutorial is all about extending the random image block we created in the previous post. We got as far as adding a drop-down control to select an image category. We’ll continue with this by adding more block options to allow further customization.
The new WordPress editor (codenamed Gutenberg) is due for release in version 5.0. Now is the perfect time to get to grips with it before it lands in WordPress core. In this series, I’m showing you how to work with the Block API and create your very own content blocks which you can use to build out your posts and pages.
