Block Styling Backend


Gutenberg is the code name for the new block based editor introduced in WordPress 5. It replaces the classic WordPress editor which is built on TinyMCE.

It is a significant change in how content is created.

With Gutenberg, you can add multiple media types and arrange the layout within the editor using blocks.
WordPress is changing the editor to make it more approachable to non-coders.

The main problem is that: blocks backend Ui is not as clear and intuitive as it should be.


  • How it works
  • Plugin in action on pages
  • Plugin working on posts
  • Focus on title and columns


  1. Upload block-styling-backend.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. that’s it. It works out of the box.


How does it work?

It basically works. It’s magic.
(Behind the scenes adding small CSS and bytes of code to change Gutenberg blocks layout ).

May I have any extra heavy resources or bloat ?

Nope. Just, on backend, few bytes of compressed code.

What’s the killer feature ?

Now you can easily spot the markup you’re doing and also headings’ placement, to improve your on-page SEO and writing better content.

I tested myself, and lol... I am also the coder behind itself. But.. hey! It works and it's also a missing feature that may improve the Blocks Ui, as it may help also color blindness people.
