Demo Content for Blocks



Demo Content for Blocks provides utilities to quickly add blocks with predefined content to any post.

Plugin and Theme developers

The plugin can be used to set blocks with your own content. This way users will be able to add blocks with content already set. For more information check the documentation.


Inside the Post editor on the right side of the top Block’s Toolbar the plugin icon/button should appear (if not, please read the FAQ below).
Click the icon/button to open the plugin sidebar.
By default two panels appear, single core blocks and multiple core blocks.
Click the ADD or REPLACE buttons to insert the block with its demo content inside the editor.
