What happened to Gutenberg Reusable Blocks?


What gives? This situation cannot be simpler and more exasperating for a WordPress Gutenberg noob.

A fresh install and any attempt to add a new Post produces an editor “unexpected error” dialog. Install and activate the Gutenberg plugin (5.3.0) and then Blocks can be added and edited. But there is no Reusable Blocks category for adding a new Block and no provision to save one in the 3-dot menu.

The fresh install is WP 5.1.1 with no plugins on https://caftest.000webhostapp.com. Changing Themes makes no difference.

Suggestions appreciated.


I’m not sure, maybe better positioned on WordPress forums?



Thanks for the suggestion @Infinity. I thought it was unique to the 000webhost install, but will also post on the WP forum/


I’ll have a lookie but I’ve seen others complaining on other forums regarding the features, not an avid user of WP myself not sure what I’m looking for.


This is an issue with a 000webhost.com hosted site.

I’ve done bare minimum fresh installs and the problem consistently repeats (WP 5.1.1 with PHP 7.1.26).

Then identical installs on a local server without having the problem (WP 5.1.1 with PHP 7.3.3).

Might this be the older PHP version or some other hosting characteristic?


Maybe checkout show PHP info and compare PHP info file with your local install, lots of stuff disabled on free hosting


I’d put the PHP info in my last post. PHP 7.1.26 on 000webhost and PHP 7.3.3 on local server.

Would there be a different (more recent) PHP in a regular Hostinger hosted site?


Did you checkout PHP info though as a lot of things can be disabled/enabled


// Show all information, defaults to INFO_ALL

// Show just the module information.
// phpinfo(8) yields identical results.


Hostinger allows
