With the development of Gutenberg, WooCommerce blocks started to show up among the other core WordPress blocks, together with the WooCommerce plugin.

Let’s take a look at them.

Core WooCommerce Blocks

Both the WooCommerce and non-WooCommerce blocks can be added via the block inserter. You can open it up from any “+” sign in the interface. Next, type in “Woo” or “WooCommerce” in the search bar and you’ll see all the core blocks.

If you hover over any block, you’ll see a preview of how it would look on the page.

The moment you click on a block, it will get added to the page. Each block has a toolbar that allows you to take certain actions. Some of them are particular to every block, some of them are common to all of them. Here are the most common actions that you can find in the toolbar:

The WooCommerce block toolbar
  • Move the block. You can use the arrows to move it up or down, or use the dots for dragging and dropping it wherever you want on the page.
  • Copy the block. This allows you to copy the WooCommece block to the clipboard, and to paste it on another page.
  • Duplicate the block. This option makes a copy of the block and places it underneath the current block. After this duplication, you can style both blocks independently.
  • Insert a block before or after the current block.
  • Move the block. Once you select the “Move to” option you can use the keyboard’s arrow keys to move the block where you want. Just hit enter when you reach your chosen place for the moved block.
  • Group the block together with other blocks.
  • Remove the block. You can also press delete.
  • Add to Reusable blocks. I love this feature! This feature can save you lots of time. You can style a block the way you want and you can use it later in other page design. 

For example, I have created two reusable blocks, and named them according to their specialty, so to speak, or particular styling.

Reusable blocks

You can find these blocks in the Block inserter in their own “Reusable” category.

If you select the “Manage Reusable block” option, you’ll be taken to a list that contains all these blocks. You can make further edits to them from here, add a new reusable block, or make deletions.

Now, when you select any block from the website canvas, you see both the toolbar and a block editor. The block editor will show up to the right and has customization options that vary from block to block. Let’s see what these blocks can do and how you can make changes to their layout.
