Block: Cover

This is a left aligned cover block with a background image.

The cover block lets you add text on top of images or videos.

This blocktype has several alignment options, and you can also align or center the text inside the block.

The background image can be fixed and you can change its opacity and add an overlay color.

Make sure that the text wraps correctly over the image, and that text markup and alignments are working.

The next image should have a pink overlay color, the text should be bold and aligned to the left:

A center aligned cover image block, with a left aligned text.

This is a full width cover block with a fixed background image with a 20% opacity.

Make sure that all the text is readable.

Our last cover image block has a wide width.

This is a wide cover block with a video background.

Compare the video and image blocks.
This block is centered.

The block below has no alignment, and the text is a link. Overlay colors must also work with video kkkk backgrounds.

Block: Gallery

Gallery blocks have two settings: the number of columns, and whether or not images should be cropped. The default number of columns is three, and the maximum number of columns is eight.

Below is a three column gallery at full width, witthhtrztrz

h cropped images.

Some more text for taking up space.

A two column gallery, aligned to the left.

In the editor, the image captions can be edited directly by clicking on the text.

If the number of images cannot be divided into the number of columns you have selected, the default is to have the last image(s) automatically stretch to the width of your gallery.

A four column gallery with a wide width:

A five column gallery with normal images:

This is the same gallery, but with cropped images.

Six columns: does it work at all window sizes?

Seven columns: how does this look on a narrow window?

Eight columns:

Block: Columns

This page tests how the theme displays the columns block. The first block tests a two column block with paragraphs.

This is the second column. It should align next to the first column. Reduce the browser window width to test the responsiveness.

This is the second column block. It has 3 columns.

Paragraph 2 is in the middle.

Paragraph 3 is in the last column.

The third column block has 4 columns. Make sure that all the text is visible and that it is not cut off.

Now the columns are getting narrower.

The margins between the columns should be wide enough,

so that the content of the columns does not run into or overlap each other.

Column one.

Column two.

Column three.

Column four.

Column five.

To change the number of columns, select the column block to open the settings panel. You can show up to 6 columns. If the theme has support for wide align, you can also set the alignments to wide and full width.

Below is a column block with six columns, and no alignment:

Column one.

Column two.

Column three.

Column four.

Column five.

Column six.

Next is a 3 column block, with a wide alignment:

Column one.

Column two.

Column three.

And here is a two column block with full width, and a longer text. Make sure that the text wraps correctly.

This is column one. Sometimes, you may want to use columns to display a larger text, so, lets add some more words.   Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. Donec mollis. Quisque convallis libero in sapien pharetra tincidunt. Aliquam elit ante, malesuada id, tempor eu, gravida id, odio. Maecenas suscipit, risus et eleifend imperdiet, nisi orci ullamcorper massa, et adipiscing orci velit quis magna. Praesent sit amet ligula id orci venenatis auctor. Phasellus porttitor, metus non tincidunt dapibus, orci pede pretium neque, sit amet adipiscing ipsum lectus et libero. Aenean bibendum. Curabitur mattis quam id urna. Vivamus dui. Donec nonummy lacinia lorem. Cras risus arcu, sodales ac, ultrices ac, mollis quis, justo. Sed a libero. Quisque risus erat, posuere at, tristique non, lacinia quis, eros.

Column two. Cras volutpat, lacus quis semper pharetra, nisi enim dignissim est, et sollicitudin quam ipsum vel mi. Sed commodo urna ac urna. Nullam eu tortor. Curabitur sodales scelerisque magna. Donec ultricies tristique pede. Nullam libero. Nam sollicitudin felis vel metus. Nullam posuere molestie metus. Nullam molestie, nunc id suscipit rhoncus, felis mi vulputate lacus, a ultrices tortor dolor eget augue. Aenean ultricies felis ut turpis. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. Suspendisse placerat tellus ac nulla. Proin adipiscing sem ac risus. Maecenas nisi. Cras semper.

We can also add blocks inside columns:

  1. This is a numbered list,
  2. inside a 3 column block
  3. with a wide alignment.

The middle column has a paragraph with an image block below.

canola

Block: Quote

The quote block has two styles, regular:

Gutenberg is more than an editor.

The Gutenberg Team

and large:


Yes, it is a press, certainly, but a press from which shall flow in inexhaustible streams, the most abundant and most marvelous liquor that has ever flowed to relieve the thirst of men! Through it, God will spread His Word. A spring of truth shall flow from it: like a new star it shall scatter the darkness of ignorance, and cause a light heretofore unknown to shine amongst men.


Johannes Gutenberg

The quote blocks themselves has no alignments but the text can be aligned, bold, italic, and linked:

Block category: Common

The Common category includes the following blocks: Paragraph, image, headings, list, gallery, quote, audio, cover, video.

The paragraph block is the default block type.  It should not have any alignment of any kind. It should just flow like you would normally expect. Nothing fancy. Just straight up text, free flowing, with love.

This paragraph is left aligned.

This italic paragraph is right aligned.

Neither of these paragraphs care about politics, but this one is bold, medium sized and has a drop cap.

This paragraph is centered.

This paragraph prefers Jazz over Justin Timberlake. It also uses the small font size.

This paragraph has something important to say:  It has a large font size, which defaults to 36px.

The huge text size defaults to 46px, but the size can be customized.

This paragraph is colorful, with a red background and white text. Colored blocks should have a high enough contrast, so that the text is readable.

Below this block, you will see a single image.
