WordPress.com Editing Toolkit


This plugin comes with a custom block to display a list of your most recent blog posts, as well as a template selector
to give you a head start on creating new pages for your site. It also provides a way to change your font settings globally from the page editor.


  1. Upload the plugin files to the /wp-content/plugins/full-site-editing directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress.
  3. Create a new page and select a template that best suits your needs.
  4. Place the “Blog Posts Listing” block anywhere you want inside the block editor.

Preguntas frecuentes

Can I use this plugin in production?

We’ll be making frequent updates to the plugin as we flesh out its feature set. You’re welcome to try it, just be aware that it is only designed to work on the WordPress.com environment and could break after an update.

How is the Blog Posts Listing block different from the Latest Posts block in Core?

It adds an excerpt! And meta information! It really is much more useful, especially if your looking for a block that gives readers a better idea about your latest posts than just the title.

Do you provide support for this plugin?

This plugin is experimental, so we don’t provide any support for it outside of websites hosted on WordPress.com at this time.

Very good decision to include this in wordpress.org. I was experienced this in wordpress.com. thank you team (Automatic) for creating this plugin. I searched for this option and had a long discussion in the forum...
