Saving and reusing blocks

If you have specific blocks of content you use frequently, try saving them to your block library. Then you can add them to any page instantly. If you're on our Enterprise plan, you can even lock saved blocks so that anyone can use them, but only admins can edit them.

Note: Some features are available only on our Enterprise plan.

Saving blocks

You can save any block in a Qwilr Page. At the top left corner of the block, click the Block Options icon (three dots). Next, click the blue Save Block icon. Give the block a title, and click Save.

Using saved blocks

To use a saved block in your page, click the + icon to add a new block and then click the Library tab.

You can search or browse your saved blocks to find the one you want to use. Click on the block to insert it into your page.

Accessing your saved block library

To view all your saved blocks, head to the top left corner of your dashboard and click on Blocks.

In your block library, you'll be able to filter your blocks by type or search them by title.

Creating blocks within the block library

You can create a new block here in the block library and then save it to use in other pages. Click the  Create New button at the top right corner. Then choose the type of block you'd like to create.

Once you've finished creating your block, click the  Save Changes button. This block will now be available in your block library.

Deleting saved blocks

From your block library:

In your block library, hover over the block you want to delete. Then click the Options icon (three dots), and choose Delete Block

When you delete a block, it cannot be undone, so be careful!

From within a page:

You can also delete a saved block while you're editing a page. First, add a new block to the page and then click the Library tab. 

From there, hover over the block you want to delete. Click the Options icon (three dots) and then choose Delete

Editing saved blocks

You can edit the content of a saved block any time. First, locate it in your block library. Then hover over the saved block and click the pencil icon. 

Once you've made your changes, click the Save Changes button at the top right corner.

Note: When you edit a saved block, the changes won't apply to any pages where you've previously used this block. Those pages will reflect the earlier version of the block.

If you don't want to save the changes, click the X icon and then click the trash can icon.

If the block is locked (as shown in the section below), only admin users will be able to edit it.

Locking saved blocks

Note: This feature is only available on our Enterprise plan.

From your block library, you can choose to lock specific blocks so that only admins can edit them. This means anyone in your account can add the block to a Qwilr Page, but only an admin can update the text. Locked blocks are great for content that you don't want changed, like legal terms of use.

Access your block library by heading to the top left corner of your dashboard and then clicking  Blocks.

Alternatively, you can access your block library from within any Qwilr Page. Click the + symbol to add a new block, and then click the Library tab.

Hover over the block you need to lock. Click the Options icon (three dots). Then enable the Lock Editing to Admins switch. A lock icon will appear next to the block title.
