10up Produces Classic Post Migration Path With Its Convert to Blocks WordPress Plugin

The other day, 10up formally revealed Convert to Blocks, a WordPress plugin for changing traditional posts into blocks. The objective is to supply users with a safe migration path for old material while getting rid of the concerns of other choices in the area.

I quickly discussed this plugin in an post covering bulk conversion in the Ask the Bartender series. I might not suggest it to a lot of users since it was hosted on GitHub, a website that is tailored towards designers. With it now formally in the WordPress plugin directory site, it is a lot more easy to use alternative.

The majority of conversion choices either transform posts wholesale or through a manual procedure, such as the user clicking a button. Due to the fact that there is no trustworthy method for users to examine the success of each post’s conversion to blocks, bulk converters can be troublesome at a big scale just. Naturally, users might examine these posts separately, however that is not practical when handling more than a couple of lots posts.

Bulk converters are likewise done so in combination with a database backup. It is reasonable to do this when changing big quantities of material at the same time simply to be on the safe side.

“We saw an area for a 3rd method– an option that gets rid of editors coming across Traditional blocks and requiring to understand how to transform them, while likewise keeping back on material change till content requirements to be customized– at which point it is likewise, usually, examined once again on the front end of the website,” composed Darshan Sawardekar, a 10up lead web engineer, in the statement.

“That’s where the concept for Convert to Blocks entered play. It started as an innovative engineering service to reduce threat and enhance material mapping. Its success influenced the advancement and public release of the plugin to assist others assist in safe material migrations to the WordPress block editor.”

10up’s service is a little a happy medium. When a user goes into the modifying screen for it, it just transforms a post. From that point, the user can inspect whether the conversion looks appropriate, repair any issues if they occur, and conserve the post.
