In this month’s release, we focussed on bringing you some new tools to add and embed content in your posts and pages.
When WordPress 5.0 was released a year ago, we brought you a slew of blocks to use in the new block editor: Simple Payments, Forms, Maps, Galleries, Subscriptions, and a lot more! In this release, we’d like to give you two more blocks.
The Pinterest block is the easiest way to embed Pinterest content to your site — it allows you to embed boards, profiles, and pins. Pro tip: combine a layout grid with pins to get this visually striking layout.
The new Star Rating block allows authors to add star ratings to any post or page. With just a few clicks, you can add your review of movies, books, songs, recipes — anything you can put a number on.
To use the block, start by adding up to 10 stars, then customize the color to fit your post, then click the rating of your choice.
Note: the block is solely for you to create and insert ratings into a post, it will not solicit feedback or polling from your site visitors.
A big thank you to everyone who contributed to this release:
