I’ve added the Ultimate Gutenberg Blocks plugin from Stackable, which creates several new block types. (I’ve also added some other custom block plugins, but will test them in other posts.) Here are the different block types and the styles that the plugin provides.
Ultimate Blocks Blockquote
It’s okay to acknowledge that life can get complicated, but we mustn’t forget the beauty in its simplicity, too. From the multitude of stars above, to freshly mowed grass in the morning, life is simply wonderful.

Ultimate Blocks Number Blocks
Basically, this block has an editable number instead of a photo or icon, with a title and a text area. I don’t think it auto-increments or anything. Nope (I tried adding a second one and it still said “01.”
Ultimate Blocks Image Box
What’s an image box? It’s an image that shows a title and subtitle on hover.
Ultimate Blocks Count-Up
Give it the final number, and it will run through the count. Though when I go back to edit the post, the number field isn’t there. Ooops.
Ultimate Blocks Video Pop-up
People do like to have videos pop up and play in lightboxes. It’s not a feature I use very often myself, though.
If you use a video from YouTube or Vimeo, just enter its ID, not its URL.
Ultimate GB Blocks Pull Quote
You can set the text color and border color with this block, but really, it’s a styled blockquote, not a pullquote–the thing that makes a pullquote pull is that it sits at least partly outside the content area, to the left or right.
Ultimate GB Blocks Expand/Show More
This is “less text,” similar to an accordion title.
Ultimate Blocks Notification
Everyone and his brother has created a notification block, each a little different. This one has settings for type (success, error, warning, information) and for dismissability, as well as for background and text color.
Success! You did everything right.
Ultimate Blocks Call to Action Block
This block includes a headline, text, and a button with a link field. I tried to edit the button text, and couldn’t. The button isn’t showing up at all on the front end.

Ultimate Blocks Spacer Block
This is a vertical spacer. The only setting is for height. I added one because otherwise there was no distinction between the real CTA block and the screenshot showing what it should look like. Now there’s extra space on account of this heading and paragraph.
