This plugin adds flexible Bootstrap 4 blocks to the WordPress editor which allow content-creators to build their own custom page layouts using the Bootstrap grid and helper classes.

The following Bootstrap components are currently available:

  • Container – fixed-width or fluid, inline background image
  • Row
  • Column
  • Button

This plugin provides 3 blocks.

Column (BS4)
Row (BS4)
Will this plugin apply Bootstrap styles or scripts available to my theme?

No. Bootstrap 4 styles have been included in the Gutenberg editor but need to be added to your theme for these blocks to appear correctly on your public-facing website.

This plugin is developed, tested, and is intended to be used with Understrap.

This plugin is giving me trouble. Can you help?

Yes. This plugin is under active development and maintenance–your feedback is important.

Please submit issues, feature requests through the support page, or browse the source at

Nice work – with this plugin and the power of Bootstrap I am finally convinced using the new Gutenberg Editor.
