Snippets: Add New “Blocks” To The Blog Post Layout

Important: See our new snippet for adding a custom block with a custom function output https://wpexplorer-themes.com/total/snippets/single-block-blocks-filter-4/

/**
 * Example function for adding new "blocks" to the blog post layout manager.
 *
 * After adding your new blocks simply create a new file with the name "blog-single-YOUR_KEY.php"
 * and place this file at partials/blog/ in your child theme. Make sure to replace "YOUR_KEY" with
 * the key given in the array. In the example below the key would be "advertisement" so you would create
* a file called blog-single-advertisement.php for your child theme and place it as mentioned above.
 *
 * IMPORTANT: This module will be disabled by default, so you will have to go to the Customizer to enable it.
 *

add_filter( 'wpex_blog_single_blocks', function( $blocks ) {

    // Add new block "advertisement"
    $blocks['advertisement'] = __( 'My Advertisement', 'total' );

    // Return blocks
    return $blocks;

} );

Result:

All PHP snippets should be added via a child theme's functions.php file.
