    With the introduction of GenerateBlocks, would GB’s functionality eliminate the need for using header elements? Thanks in advance for clarifying.

    Hi there,

    in its current form GB/Gutenberg is still only for static content.
    Whereas Header Elements are dynamic and the best way of automating hero creation.

    The good news ( or should that be super awesomely great news 🙂 ) is GPP 1.11 will be introducing block elements that in the future may replace our traditional HTML header elements

    Hello –

    I’m currently viewing tutorial video at https://docs.generatepress.com/article/moving-hooks-page-headers-to-elements/ to convert from Page Headers.

    I’ve slammed on the brakes halfway through the video, because I remember reading the blocks may replace elements. That lead me to find this issue.

    My question: Have blocks now replaced elements, or should I continue to migrate to elements?

    Thanks in advance,

    GP Premium 1.11.3
    Generate Blocks 1.1.2

    Hi there,

    Block Element is a new Addition to the Elements module.
    Currently it can only display static content.
    For dynamic content eg. automatic post title and featured images you will need to use the Header Element today.

    Future updates to GP Premium and GB Pro will allow you to create Dynamic Content.

    So to answer your question – if you’re happy with your current Page header designs and are happy with the HTML and Template tags you’re using then I would migrate them to Header Elements.

    If you’re thinking of redesigning the content and you think GB Blocks will make that easier then i may wait a month or two for the updated versions.
