Introducing Block Styles for WordPress’ Block Editor


Easily Amused is excited to share with the WordPress community, our new Block Styles for WordPress plugin! Our new plugin easily lets you extend styling aspects of core WordPress blocks and other third-party block providers. No coding involved!

We give you complete control over WordPress blocks including layout features, device settings, custom CSS, and more.

The WordPress Block Editor

The WordPress Gutenberg block editor allows you to create web pages easily with content blocks for headings, paragraphs, lists, and more. However, it can be difficult to control various styling aspects of blocks. Block Styles extends the Gutenberg block editor, eliminating the need to add more blocks.

The custom styling options work not only with WordPress core blocks but with many third-party block providers as well.
