Adding blocks to your template

Gravity Forms Email Customizer uses WordPress’s built-in editor to construct the templates. If you have never used the WordPress Editor, or are fairly new to it, it can be a little confusing at first. But, once you get the hang of it, you’ll be able to build out your templates with ease!

Using the Block Inserter

  1. While editing your template, click the button with the + icon in the top left of your screen.
  2. A list of blocks will appear in a sidebar on the left side.
  3. Click on a block and it will be added to the bottom of your template.

Adding directly to the template

  1. When clicking on elements in the template you’ll see a little + icon show up.
  2. Click on the + and you can quickly select from your most used blocks.
  3. You can also search for a specific block or select Browse all to open the Block Inserter panel.

Adding before or after an existing block

  1. Select an existing element in your template.
  2. In the toolbar that appears above the block, select the 3 dots on the right side to open an action menu.
  3. Select Add before or Add after to create a spot for a new element.
  4. Add a new block by clicking the + icon, or type a forward slash / and you’ll be presented with your most used blocks to choose from.

Copying and pasting blocks

  1. Select an existing element in your template.
  2. In the toolbar that appears above the block, select the 3 dots on the right side to open an action menu.
  3. Select Copy.
  4. Add a new block anywhere in your template using whichever method you want.
  5. Select the block and then hit command-v (mac) or cntrl-v (pc) on your keyboard to paste the copied block.
