Making Block Reviews With Basic Gutenberg Blocks

It’s also possible to create a testimonial section using a few standard Gutenberg blocks. 

First of all, you will need to add a Cover block. It will work as a parent block for the whole structure. Set background and apply a full-width layout.

As you’ve already learned from our Cover block overview, you can make a background and set the horizontal and vertical positions for it. Then let’s add an eye-catching heading.

One of the most important elements of the review section on the website is the block, where information about reviewers.

We will add two horizontal columns for two testimonials. Let’s also set minimal height for the Trustworthiness block.

To introduce people, who had a deal with you or have used your services, you have to add their photos. In this tutorial, we will use Media and text block, because you need to showcase both a photo and an occupation and it will do the job.

After you’ve uploaded and customized a photo element, you may add the position of the reviewer.

Let’s do the final steps of building a review section on website. Click on the Heading block and insert one more block after it. Add two columns above the previously created structure and add a Paragraph block inside each of them. Almost done! Now, fill the paragraphs up with the reviews and customize text and images, if necessary.

Congratulations! Now you know how to build a neat and stylish review section on any website.
