Best WordPress Gutenberg Blocks Plugins Compared

In this post, we’re taking a closer look at some popular WordPress Gutenberg block plugins. So if you think it’s high time (it is!) to switch to a more native WordPress page builder that extends the functionality of Gutenberg, we are here to help you find the right match for your needs. It all boils down to your particular type of website after all.

Please note: we’re going to list only those Gutenberg blocks plugins for WordPress that are bundles of extra blocks for different content creation purposes, similar to WordPress page builders like Elementor, but more WordPress-native.

We’ve given a brief test-run to each Gutenberg plugin in this round-up to get some hands-on experience and share it with you. We’ll also highlight the pros and cons of these plugins as well as organize some paramount features in the checklist so you can compare the most essential things.

Meet Getwid: WordPress Gutenberg Blocks by MotoPress

Probably the fiercest Gutenberg block competition is in full swing. We are observing the rise of Gutenberg add-on plugins that are quickly growing in popularity.

However, I believe this time there is one important thing that unites all the block providers – and it’s the Gutenberg editor itself.

The matter of styling, performance and development approaches in general still differ, of course, but at least you as a WordPress user can benefit from this freedom of choice and flexibility.

Now the most interesting part! With years of crafting WordPress content building tools under the belt, MotoPress has also made its contribution!

Today we are introducing Getwid – a free Gutenberg blocks plugin that ships with the bundle of extra complex and simple blocks for all types of websites.
