Block Navigation

Block Navigation provides a sidebar with the current post/page’s blocks and some tools to facilitate the editing process in the new Gutenberg editor.


The features are especially useful for nested blocks – blocks that are inside parent blocks which are difficult to select or move in the editor.

Inside the panel several utilities are included to enhance the UX, such as:

  • Dragging blocks to a different location
  • Moving blocks by click
  • Selecting blocks
  • Easily recognising the block from a small snippet of the block’s content

Plugin and Theme developers

The plugin also provides some features for Plugin and Theme developers such as:

  • Click and Copy the block’s clientId
  • Click to console.log helpful data from the block

The Plugin also lets the user select a color scheme from multiple dark and light schemes.
