Recent post on make.wordpress.org to kick off discussion about a directory for block patterns. Block Patterns were introduced in WordPress core in version 5.5 (May 2020) as a way to register predefined blocks in themes and plugins. Once registered on a site, these block patterns can easily be inserted into the block editor and then configured by the content creator. Block Patterns help people to add complex block-based layouts to a site in a consistent way.
Could this feature, the ability to insert community-sourced block patterns into posts from inside the edit screen, help end users unlock the power of the block editor?
