Blocksolid Gather


Blockolid Gather is a content aggregator which allows you to use a shortcode or gutenberg block to display related posts, pages, posts or custom post types in a grid.

In the Classic Editor Gather can be conjured using a simple shortcode such as:

[blocksolid_gather specificposttitle=“My Post“]

If you use the Block Editor / Gutenberg our included Gather block allows you to choose your related posts via certain parameters and provides a live-preview of them within your page.

If you are using our separate Blocksolid plugin as a page builder and Gutenberg overlay the Blocksolid Gather plugin also integrates well with this.
