Create a Native WordPress Block Plugin Using Pinegrow Web Editor

Create a Native WordPress Block Plugin Using Pinegrow Web Editor

In this tutorial video, we create a plugin with native WordPress blocks to display custom and dynamic data from blocks and custom post types inside a biography grid using the Pinegrow Web Editor. All with no code!

We create three versions of this block.

  1. With no options to edit the content in the Block Editor.
  2. With the ability to edit all fields, and conditionally show or hide items, using the Block Editor.
  3. To dynamically create a custom post type, taxonomy, and fields using Pinegrow and Meta Box, then display that data using a custom query loop.

This is part 2 of 2 in this series. In Part 1, we built the card using plain HTML and CSS.
