If you have any trouble, you can use the forums or report bugs.


Small patches and bug reports can be submitted a issue tracker in Github. Forking on Github is another good way. You can send a pull request.

Translating a plugin takes a lot of time, effort, and patience. I really appreciate the hard work from these contributors.

If you have created or updated your own language pack, you can send gettext PO and MO files to author. I can bundle it into plugin.

You can also contribute by answering issues on the forums.

2021(e)ko irailaren 22(a)
This could have been a 5 star plugin – easily ! Having preset values for paddings/margins is almost a deal breaker for me here. The author of the post/page should be the only one in authority to decide exactly how much spacing is needed for the blocks, as different sites/themes have different requirements. This plugin adds most of the necessary things to make Gutenberg a viable page builder, and (this plugin) comes very close in filling the missing items, but really, the site admin needs to make ALL the decisions for their own site. I would very gladly revise my rating to 5 stars, once I we get more options and freedoms with the block spacings. UPDATE: Sept 22, 2021: The new update fixes many things, and even though I wanted to be able to have custom padding/margin values, I think it’s only fair to change my rating from 4 stars to 5. I just wish more people would appreciate this plugin, so it would further be developed. Good job, and thanks again!
