i just wanted to put a link into some headlines – using the gb headline block at first. But there doesnt seem to be an option for that, right?
As i try to use gb headline over the normal headline block i wondered as i saw that the normal block had the link Option.
Is it available in gb and i couldn’t find? If not – here’s a suggestion for another feature.
Edit – hold on a minute: there is a link color…
Can you help me out there- i seem to be blind :O
Also quick follow up question: can you make a whole container a link-area?
While i am at it – i just wrote an answer to the custom color palette topic.
This is – in my opinion – also solved better in normal Blocks currently. Meaning: in gb blocks it shows the color picker by default (after selecting what color to change). In normal Blocks the custom color palette. So two clicks more each time 😉 – would be nice to have an option to choose which to show. If you add your custom color palette you wont need the picker.May 23, 2020 at 3:44 am #1297819DavidStaffCustomer SupportMay 23, 2020 at 4:34 am #1297847Matthias
edit – after all ready writing that i feel stupid now i can say:
yeah it is there BUT:
It happened again:
i edited a headline – added a link. And when i clicked another container to edit -> the option was gone again.
After reloading it is back again.
I tried this a few times and it is gone when i do the following:
2. Click paragraph
3. click Headline -> link button is gone.
and after reload it is back (until you do 1-2-3 again)
if anyone can confirm i take the big bounty of beeing thanked for finding the first official bug 😛May 23, 2020 at 9:53 am #1298281LeoStaffCustomer SupportMay 23, 2020 at 3:18 pm #1298551Matthias
found the conflicting plugin – and its quite a popular one (if you take the numbers):

The block itself specifically says to include a link option, so that means Rank Math is likely filtering the RichText component to remove it in some instances. You may need to report this to them.May 24, 2020 at 12:11 am #1298810MatthiasJune 23, 2020 at 6:53 am #1338694Natalie
I have the same problem but in my case the conflicting plugin is Yoast SEO (version 14.4.1)
They have just added extra options to links to allow you to add nofollow and sponsored as rel parameters on the link. This may be the problem.
I haven’t reported it to them yetJune 24, 2020 at 1:19 am #1339816Natalie
I have now submitted this support request on the Yoast WP plugin page:

It’s something they’ll definitely need to fix. It seems to happen when a block defines its own
However, in GB 1.1 (available for beta testing: https://generateblocks.com/generateblocks-1-1-0/), it shouldn’t be an issue anymore, as we removed the
allowedFormatsoption.June 24, 2020 at 7:54 pm #1340867Natalie
Tom – you’re a hero! Beta version downloaded and links are now working with the Yoast plugin.June 25, 2020 at 9:49 am #1341746
