    Loving new theme builder functionality using elements. However, each element needs a location set (page or post).

    Is there an ability to create reusable dynamic blocks?

    I want to create a dynamic reusable block (with featured image, title, excerpt and permalink) that displays child-pages or allows the author to select a post or page – something like https://wordpress.org/plugins/visual-link-preview/

    Hi there,

    glad to hear you like the new feature.
    Dynamic content within the editor is not something the new Block Element was designed for. GP+GPP will only ever generate content for output at theme level.
    But a future feature of GenerateBlocks Pro will be to add Dynamic content at the editor/content level.

    But i am not sure exactly what you’re trying to do – what you’re describing sounds like what the Post Archives do or what WP Show Posts does… do you have an example site or a mockup i can see to get a better understanding ?

    Hi David,
    My apologies. 2 different requests:

    1. I want to create visual links to child-pages. This blog page has links to all my posts. Rather than a simple link, each item includes featured image, title and excerpt. Can we create similar links to any sub-pagws automatically. For example, Services page should automatically display links to all sub-pages. Each item would include the title and featured image of the sub-page. Perhaps WPShowPosts is a better fit.

    2. A block to create links to any page or post. Allow user to search for page or post. Waiting for GB pro for dynamic features to facilitate this.

    No apologies necessary – i am low on Coffee so i get easily confused lol

    1. Yes, i think WP Show Posts would be the way to go with this.

    2. Something for us to think about there 🙂 Definitely a niche idea!

    Also finding the dynamic content blocks really useful!

    ‘But a future feature of GenerateBlocks Pro will be to add Dynamic content at the editor/content level’

    So to clarify this, when creating posts/pages there will be a dynamic block option to feature meta field data within the page design?

    Hi there,

    thats correct GB Pro ( in the future ) will have dynamic data options at the block level that can be accessed in the post editor.
