Osom Blocks – Custom Post Type listing block


Osom Blocks is a block to list Custom Post Types, ideally to use with OsomPress themes.

With Osom Custom Post Type Block you can display a list of CPT entries and customize:
1. The Custom Post Type.
2. Number of posts.
3. Display/hide the featured image.
4. Display/hide the excerpt.
5. Choose grid display
6. Choose the number of columns for the grid layout
7. Choose the title HTML markup (H2, H3 or H4).
8. Customize the “read more” text.
9. Display/hide parent post/pages (only in hierarchical Custom Post Types).
10. Display/hide pagination.

Deprecation Notice

Important: We want to inform you that the plugin will be deprecated in future releases. For new sites we highly encourage you use the native query loop block, which now supports listing of Custom Post Types seamlessly.
We appreciate your understanding.

அடிக்கடி கேட்கப்படும் கேள்விகள்

Can Osom Blocks be used with any theme?

Yes, you can use Osom Blocks with any theme.

Do I need the new block editor to use Osom Blocks?

Yes, you will need to have WordPress 5.0 or later installed to take advantage of Osom Blocks.

Can I display any Custom Post Type?

Yes, all the CPT will automatically populate and you only need to choose it from the dropdown.

I’m seeing more posts than I selected in the settings, why is that?

If more posts than selected are displaying, make sure you activate “Ignore sticky posts” toggle.

I’m not seeing one (or more) Custom Post Type, why is that?

If you have created the CPT make sure you use the argument “show_in_rest” => true, when registering. If it’s created by third party you can use the filter register_post_type_args to add the support.

Justo lo que necesitaba y llevaba tiempo buscando en otros bloques. Al instalarlo no reconocía mi CPT, porque entre los atributos del mismo no había puesto: ‘show_in_rest’=> true. Después de modificar mi CPT con este atributo se quedó perfecto, lo menciono por si a alguien le pasa lo mismo que a mi. Muchas gracias a los desarrolladores por esta nueva aportación.

Lo mejor de este plugin es que una funcionalidad tan básica como listar nuestros CPTs en lista o rejilla y que no incorpora de serie Gutenberg, la implemente de una forma limpia, eficiente y con las suficientes opciones para que este plugin pase a ser uno de mis imprescindibles en mis instalaciones de WordPress. Que además esté desarrollado por dos prominentes miembros de la comunidad, es para mi mi una excelente garantía de compatibilidad, mantenimiento y soporte.

Es un plugin muy sencillo, pero que viene genial cuando quieres mostrar entradas de CPT. Todas las soluciones que encontraba tenían algún problema y este plugin, pese a faltarle aun mejoras, lo hace todo bien! Y el soporte de 10, les notifiqué un pequeño error y tardaron nada en identificarlo y solucionarlo.

This plugin is just perfect. I have a few Custom Post Types that I cannot add them to an archive page without learn some PHP. Thanks to this plugin we can display a list of CPT entries and customize as follows. 1. The Custom Post Type. 2. Number of posts. 3. Display/hide the featured image. 4. Choose the title HTML markup (H2, H3 or H4). 5. Customize the “read more” text. Without ONE line of code. I cannot be more thankfully!

Funciona perfectamente aunque no utilices un tema de OsomPress, te permite hacer un listado de cualquier post type y personalizar el nivel de encabezado para tener una buena jerarquía encabezados
