Yesterday we released Complianz Privacy Suite 2.1.0. There was only one major new feature that stands out: the plugin is now Gutenberg block enabled, and is now listed in the block enabled plugins (as new plugins get added, the actual page might change) on WordPress.

What does this mean?

As you are probably aware (how could you have missed it), since WordPress 5.0 we have a new editor. It certainly looks great, and offers new possibilities we didn’t have before. For example, in the old editor, to add functionality to a WordPress page, you had to use shortcodes. This works great, but has one big disadvantage: the end user has to know the shortcodes and the possible attributes to use them. In Complianz we used shortcodes like this:

Region EU not activated for cookie-policy.

If you see this in your page, you will probably guess what it does, but you won’t see what it will look like on the front-end. Gutenberg blocks changes this.

Gutenberg: more Wysiwyg capabilities

With the 2.1.0 release, there is a Complianz block which you can add.

Then, if you have completed the wizard in the Complianz Privacy Suite plugin, you will see one or more selectable documents in the right sidebar

When you select one, you will get to see the preview of the actual document

Complianz Privacy Suite will continue to work with the classic editor, but for those of you who love the new block editor, you can use the fully integrated Complianz block.
