I am using has_block() to check if post has a specific block type but it does not see blocks inside another blocks, like columns block. So, how to make it find a gallery inside the column?

1 Answer 1


It should, because has_block( 'gallery' ) uses source strpos() to determine if the post content has the <!-- wp:gallery string.

  • Ok I asked wrong question. My problem is with rendering that gallery. I thought this is the issue but it is somewhere else...
