Find My Blocks


Find My Blocks is a WordPress plugin built to help (as it says in the name) find where you have used specific Gutenberg blocks on your WordPress website.

Gutenberg is a great tool to make managing content on your WordPress website easier. However after a while, updating and maintaining blocks can become a hassle for developers. It can become hard to keep track of what posts/pages a block is used on, or how many times it has used. This makes maintaining Gutenberg websites quite difficult.

Find my blocks is a tool that is here to help. With Find My Blocks you can get:

  • A list of all the block types that are being used on your WordPress website.
  • The amount of times a specific block type has been used on your WordPress website.
  • The posts/pages that a block has been used on.
  • The amount of times a block has been used on a specific post/page.
  • If the block is a „Reusable Block“
  • If the block is a „Nested Block“
  • A filtered list of block names to help you find the block that you are looking for.
  • What are your most used, and least used blocks on your website.


  1. Upload the plugin files to the /wp-content/plugins/find-my-blocks directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‚Plugins‘ screen in WordPress
  3. Use the Tools->Find My Blocks screen to locate all of your blocks


Will this work with custom blocks

Yes, this plugin will work with all blocks registered and used on your site.

Essential tool for anyone wanting to remove Gutenberg block plugins since it shows you where your blocks are used.

With so many block packages to try, it's easy to lose track of what's been used during the experimental part of laying out pages. This tool is great for helping you know what you have and haven't used - especially useful when you want to remove or turn off blocks. Note: It now does find nested blocks.

Great tool, why you *can't* do this from the core dashboard, who knows! Allows you to audit your posts, and find old plugins that might only be in use in a few posts and could be replaced, especially now there are even more core blocks!

Leaving this here as a notice to others, as I almost damaged my site using this plugin. Despite mentioning it finds all custom blocks, this is not the case. This plugin does not find blocks inside of other blocks (nested blocks) Things like columns or block wrapper blocks will be shown, but if you place any content inside of these blocks, like in my case, a Jetpack Tiled Gallery inside of a Qubely block wrapper or Row/Column block, it does not display the blocks inside of them AT ALL. Beware of this if you use nested blocks on any of your pages. You still need to manually check those pages to see what's inside of them.

Thank goodness for this plugin, which fills a noticeable hole in core! I like being able to disable some blocks using the block manager, but until I found this, I was never confident that I wasn't disabling something that someone had used in a post! Thank you!
