As you get used to using blocks in the WordPress’ Gutenberg Editor, you may wonder if you can duplicate blocks between WordPress sites. Yes, you can.
By exporting and importing reusable blocks, you’ll be able to recreate your custom blocks between your various WordPress sites. This will save you time and effort if you manage more than one site.
Or if you have a custom block that you really like and you want to back it up outside of your regular WordPress backups.
Or maybe you’re creating Gutenberg blocks to sell on the side as a new income stream.
No matter the reason, we’re here to help you learn how to do it.
We previously talked about how to create and manage reusable blocks in this post, so if you’re unfamiliar with them, go back and read that first.
Exporting and importing reusable blocks are both done from the Block Management page. Unfortunately, WordPress has not made it easy to get to this page (yet), so it’ll take you a few clicks to get to the right page.
