Block Manager


The Block Manager is an intuitive tool for site admins to globally remove blocks and block patterns. It also provides functionality for updating the category of individual blocks to help organize the admin editing experience.


  • Blocks: Globally disable blocks from being displayed in the Block Inserter and Block Editor.
  • Patterns: Remove unwanted block patterns with the click of a button.
  • Block Categories: Organize the Block Inserter by updating the category of each block.
  • Hooks: Use hooks to remove blocks and patterns from functions.php.
  • Search and Filter: Quickly locate blocks and patterns with the search functionality in the sidebar.
  • 埋め込みブロック: 無駄なオプションの大部分を削除して、実際にサイトに含める埋め込みブロックを選択します。


Block Manager フックを使用して、コード経由でブロックを制御し、複数の WordPress 環境間でオプションを同期します。


Use the gbm_disabled_blocks hook to remove blocks via backend code.

// functions.php
add_filter( 'gbm_disabled_blocks', function() {
    return [


Use the gbm_disabled_patterns hook to remove block patterns via backend code.

// functions.php
add_filter( 'gbm_disabled_patterns', function() {
return ['gbm/core-patterns', 'core/query-standard-posts', 'core/query-medium-posts'];


Use the gbm_block_categories hook to update block categories via backend code.

// functions.php
add_filter( 'gbm_block_categories', function() {
    return [
        [ 'block' => 'core/html', 'cat' => 'design' ],
        [ 'block' => 'core/cover', 'cat' => 'design' ],
        [ 'block' => 'core/details', 'cat' => 'design' ]


Block Manager プラグインへのアクセスが許可される最小ユーザー権限を更新します。

    'edit_theme_options' // Default: activate_plugins


  • ブロックを無効にする: 各ブロックのアクティブ状態を切り替えることで、不要な WordPress ブロックを簡単に削除できます。
  • ブロックの切り替え: ブロックカテゴリー内のすべてのブロックを 1 回のクリックで無効にします。
  • ブロックカテゴリー: カテゴリースイッチャーを使用して各ブロックのカテゴリを更新することで、管理者の編集エクスペリエンスが向上します。
  • Disable Block Patterns: Remove unwanted block patterns and core patterns by toggling the active state of each pattern.

Great plugin, thank you. Let me tame my plug in beast and bring order to the Press. I combined it with the php filter ‘block_categories_all’ to move them to my own categories as well. Together, they have made a world of difference.

I wanted to like this plug for the nice UI design. When I open the block manager screen, the two grey tabs where block listings are suppose to display are empty. It looks like some kind of glitch. Update: I added a couple more review stars for author’s response. Hopefully the issue gets fixed soon.

Having the ability to disable some of the more obscure, unnecessary blocks is essential and this plugin features on every site I work on. Thanks!
