Since we launched Patterns in 2020, we’ve been steadily adding to our library of prebuilt Block templates for you to easily make your site stand out even more. There are now over 260 Patterns that can be inserted into your pages and posts in just seconds.
If you’ve never used Patterns before, you can access them by hitting the “+” button at the top left of any page or post you’re working on. From there, you can do a few things:
- Use the search box to search for a term like “Header,” “Subscription,” or “Link in Bio” and select from the results
- Or click on the “Patterns” tab and use the drop down menu to explore the top results across various categories
- Or click on the “Explore” button to bring up our entire library of Patterns, organized by category
Here’s a quick demo that shows how to add an image gallery using the new Pattern explorer:
We’re always adding more Patterns, month by month — we’ve added over 45 new ones since July! — and we can’t wait for you to see some of the fun designs coming up. Think of them as an ever-growing library of sophisticated slices of web design you can customize and add to your posts, pages, and Block themes.
Below is a quick look at some of our favorites from the year so far.
If you use a lot of images in your posts, we have numerous options for you. There are some great Patterns for galleries, portfolios, and even product listings.
The adage “good things come in small packages” holds true with some of our smaller Patterns that take up less real estate. It all depends on the nature of your website, but a Pattern for donations on a non-profit site or call to subscribe on almost any blog can make a great end for a post or page.
And finally, simply exploring some of our bolder Patterns can provide inspiration on working with color, type, and images on your site!
Patterns are an incredibly useful resource in your website design toolbox. Customize, experiment, and take advantage of them whenever you can.
