Want to display Gutenberg Block Template content inside Elementor Editor?
You’re probably familiar with the Gutenberg editor and the Elementor page builder. Gutenberg is the default WordPress editor that allows you to create content using blocks, while Elementor is a popular page builder that lets you design custom layouts without coding.
There’s already a plugin called Elementor Blocks for Gutenberg. This plugin allows you to add Elementor content to Gutenberg but not vice versa.
But why would you want to add them in the first place? Isn’t Elementor more powerful? We had this case where we wanted the RSS feed block, as Elementor does not have an RSS Feed widget.
Similarly, there can be multiple reasons why you wish to render Gutenberg Block in Elementor.
Let’s find out how.
