My scenario: I created a reusable Gutenberg block (a separator with some svg content).
Now I want to add that reusable block with a hook so the separator also displays on archive and single post pages.
But how can I achieve that with the Elements > Hook Settings?
What I don´t get is how I can “print” in or add the reusable block via function in a clean way.
Do you have a hint in the right direction?

as the Re-usable block is a post type then you can try this:
<?php // get reusable gutenberg block: $get_block = get_post( XXXX ); echo apply_filters( 'the_content', $get_block->post_content ); ?>
XXXXwith the ID of the re-usable block.
However, this will not load dynamic CSS styles – fine if its a core block but you may see a loss of styling if 3rd party blocks are used.August 5, 2019 at 5:57 am #976034Michael
awesome. That worked.
Thank you very much!

Sorry for reopening the thread. I have tried the solution using GenerateBlocks that have been converted to reusable blocks but the whole layout and styling have disappeared. I guess it’s what you mentioned, David. Is there going to be a solution to this for GB?March 25, 2020 at 7:01 am #1209489DavidStaffCustomer Support
Unfortunately that method only works with blocks where inline styles or static stylesheets are used. There isn’t a simple solution to getting the dynamic CSS GB uses, but we are working on something in GP to resolve that.March 25, 2020 at 7:05 am #1209496George
Oh, that’s great, thanks!March 25, 2020 at 7:07 am #1209501DavidStaffCustomer SupportMay 30, 2020 at 2:33 am #1307390Marcel

Do you have some news about this solution? It would be great to hear a positive answer or at least an estimative deadline for that. Getting the dynamic CSS GB uses would be steroids for designers.
Thank you!May 30, 2020 at 6:13 am #1307528
