Legacy Widget (Experimental) – core/legacy-widget
Use the Legacy Widget to display a widget as part of your content.
Example Genesis User Profile widget, for Herb Miller
- The Legacy Widget block is an experimental block in Gutenberg 5.3
- When added it offers a drop down list of available widgets.
- The list may not contain as many widgets as you’d expect.
- In this site only the Genesis widgets are listed: Featured Page, Featured Posts and User Profile.
- In another site, where Jetpack was activated, it displayed all the widgets delivered by Jetpack.
- In a third it displayed the widgets delivered by WooCommerce, plus the Links widget.
- It doesn’t appear to offer widgets that are already delivered as blocks or some of the other core widgets. I don’t know why yet.
