Gutenberg is a build-in WordPress editor since 5.6. version. It enables building posts and pages with blocks. The group block is one of our favorite features. Regardless of whether it is a picture, header or text – all these elements can be freely combined and grouped. Here’s how to do it.

The most important advantage of this function is that having elements collected within a group, we can introduce settings that by default apply to all elements included in the group. E.g. text color, background color, width, etc.
