Add Query template & pagination elements into Block inserter menu


After adding a Query element in the page editor, the only way to add query template or pagination elements is through the small “Quick add” menu. I believe it should also be possible to add those elements through “Block inserter” menu.

You can see the detailed description of a problem in this video:

Environment info

  • WordPress version: 6.0
  • Gutenberg Plugin version: -
  • Cwicly Plugin version:
  • Cwicly Theme version: 1.0.3

Completely agree and I understand where you’re coming from.

The problem is, this is a Gutenberg quirk that I and others have brought up with the WordPress team about the fact that the Block Inserter doesn’t insert/consider the correct block.
This is in fact why we introduced the Quick Inserter.

Sadly, we currently can’t override this behaviour.

Oh I see. Thanks for the explanation @Louis

I will get used to it cwicly :wink:
