Getwid Blocks: Recent Posts Gutenberg Block

The Recent Posts Gutenberg block by Getwid makes it easy to display automatically sourced blog posts on any website page. Once the block is added, the posts are updated dynamically when you publish a new one. The block allows you to display posts in grid or list layouts.

Thanks to plenty of options, it’s going to be easy to tailor the look and behavior of this content element and display recent posts in either minimal or rich format.

Default styling settings, such as font and colors, are as usually inherited from the WordPress theme activated on your website. Forget about workarounds and tinkering with the blocks!


Purpose of the Recent Posts Gutenberg Block

  • Showcase posts dynamically on any dedicated website page.
  • Display recent news on the front page.


  • Improve the crosslinking of your posts by implementing the recent ones inside any blog post.

The block is packed with the following options:


  • Select a grid or list layout for your posts.
  • Opt for a full (resizable) or wide (fixed) width website layout.

Design tips

  • A full-width website layout is most suited to a grid view of the posts, especially if there are more than three columns.
  • A shorter excerpt can improve the readability of your posts.
  • Featured images of posts are usually more attention-grabbing than text, so disable featured images only in case it’s truly necessary.
