The Story block allows you to combine photos and videos to create an engaging, tappable full-screen slideshow on your site’s posts and pages. Stories published on your site won’t disappear after 24 hours and you can edit or add to stories after they are published.
To use the Story block, your site needs to have an active Jetpack plan at version 9.0 or above.
The Stories feature is available in the WordPress app for Android and iOS for all self-hosted Jetpack sites using the Block editor. The Story block will be available in the desktop Block editor on WordPress.com and on iPad devices later this year.
Adding the Story block
Jetpack brings WordPress.com features like the Story block to your self-hosted WordPress site. For detailed instructions on using the Story block, please see the WordPress.com Story Block support page.
If you’re having any trouble with the Story block, please contact support for help.
This feature is activated by default. It cannot be deactivated.
