Adding a Category Block in Gutenberg

by Dec 8, 2018WordPress 5.0, Gutenberg, WordPress Tutorials - WP Tutorials

A category block allows you to display a list of all of your post categories. Think of this as a block version of the popular category widget.

Step 1– Hover your mouse over the Add Block icon (the plus sign in the upper left hand corner within the Gutenberg editor). Scroll to Widgets. Select Categories.

Step 2 – The categories block will appear. You’ll see a list of your categories appear within the block.

Step 3– The sub menu above the block will allow you to change the text alignment of your category list. The sub menu on the right allows you to further customize how the categories will be listed on your page.
