Jetpack Blocks

The WordPress Block Editor transforms your way of writing from a single document to a collection of meaningful elements (blocks), with explicit structure. Jetpack includes some blocks of its own, which can help you create your pages exactly the way you want them.

What are blocks?

Blocks are the individual sections that make up a page. There are many block types for you to use, each block can be edited or moved independently of other blocks, and blocks can have their own formatting settings. For more information on blocks, read our guide to the WordPress Block Editor on WordPress.com

How can I add Jetpack’s blocks?

You can add a block using any of the  buttons, as explained here. You’ll then find all available Jetpack blocks under the Jetpack block category:

You can also search for a block by name using the search box, or by typing a forward slash followed by the block name, e.g. /markdown

Note that some Jetpack blocks require certain Jetpack features to be enabled, and some require a Jetpack plan. See the list below for further details.
