Better Block Patterns


Build better WordPress websites faster with our custom block patterns for the Block Editor (Gutenberg).

Better Block Patterns extends the WordPress Block Editor with numerous custom block patterns that can be used with any WordPress theme.

From portfolios, pricing tables, hotel room pages, user testimonials, to staff directories and more, we make creating these pages easier.

If you feel that popular page building plugins like Elementor and Visual Composer are too much for you, then block patterns might be the perfect solution.

Works with Any WordPress Theme

Better Block Patterns was developed to work with any WordPress theme.

No Other Plugins Required

Better Block Patterns is an independent plugin and does not require other plugins in order to function.

Will this plugin work with my theme?

Yes, absolutely! This plugin will work on any WordPress website. However it is possible that the CSS from some themes would override the styles from this plugin.
