Astra Custom Layouts Now Support Gutenberg Editor!

Now You Can Build Custom Layouts with Gutenberg!

Custom Layouts is one of the most popular Astra Pro features that users love. And for good reason! It gives you great design flexibility and freedom by allowing you to put sections on numerous locations on the website.

Even though our users are already enjoying working with Custom Layouts with their favorite page builder, we are further extending this addon with Gutenberg editor support. 

This means you can now design awesome sections with Gutenberg and place them on your website with hooks. 

This feature will be available with the Astra theme version 2.4.4 and Astra Pro version 2.5.0. When you update both to the latest version, you will then see the Gutenberg editor available in Custom layouts. 

How to Design Custom Layouts With Gutenberg? 

Let’s see how you can put up some amazing sections with Gutenberg editor.

Step 1 – Make sure you’ve enabled Custom Layouts from Astra Options.

Step 2 – Under Appearance > Astra Options > Custom Layouts, click Add New.

Step 3 – You will see the Gutenberg editor available. Go on and design a creative section.

Step 4 – Once you’re done with designing, select a layout type and location for it.

Step 5 – Publish and you’re done!

Viewing your targeted location in the frontend will display the above custom layout.

  1. Wooowwww… Nice feature… Do you thing to add template control to Astra? The same way that I can add custom peaces of code with Astra hooks, I could for example, add a custom layout and using different trigger like “use this on blog template”.

    This could be an awesome improve!

    1. Hello Jofran,

      Glad that you liked the feature!

      Currently, we do not have any plans to add template control to Astra like Elementor. For now, we only have options to insert Header, Footer, 404 Page, and Hooks which you can use to display on the required Actions.
