I have a number of reusable blocks. In the block editor, when I popup the navigator, all those blocks are called "Reusable Block".

This makes editing a document difficult.

Is there a way to name those blocks, so they show a useful name in the navigator?


Each Reusable Block can have a name.enter image description here

  • Yes but when you use it somewhere, the navigator shows "Reusable Block". Not its name. – lonix Dec 12 '19 at 16:17
  • You might have discovered a bug in WordPress. :) – MistaPrime Dec 12 '19 at 17:01
  • Lol, can you confirm whether you also see that behavior, or is it just me? :) The navigator shows all my reusable blocks as "Reusable Block" - do you see that too? – lonix Dec 13 '19 at 6:07
  • This is what I see when I save the reusable block: screenshot.how/OieLlw and this is what I see when I only hover over it: screenshot.how/e45cbC Therefore I think it may be a bug or a negligence. It should say the name of the block on hover as well. – MistaPrime Dec 13 '19 at 14:50
  • Yes me too. And in the navigation popup shift+alt+o it only shows "Reusable Block". – lonix Dec 14 '19 at 8:44
