If you’ve created your pages with Gutenberg you can continue editing them with Bricks without having to start all over again. Bricks will convert your Gutenberg blocks into Bricks elements.
You can also save and convert your Bricks generated data to Gutenberg data to continue editing a page with Gutenberg.
This way you’ll not suffer any lock-in effect when start using Bricks or if you should ever decide to move away from Bricks.
How to load Gutenberg data into Bricks
Bricks allows you to convert your existing Gutenberg data into Bricks data. So you can continue editing any page created with Gutenberg in Bricks.
This only works for pages without any existing Bricks data. To delete the Bricks data of any page click the “Delete Bricks data” button in the WordPress top menu when editing a page in WordPress.
To enable this functionality go to Bricks > Settings and make sure Load Gutenberg Data Into Bricks is selected.
How to save Bricks data for Gutenberg
By default, your WordPress-generated data won’t change when editing with Bricks. If you want to save your Bricks generated data as Gutenberg data as well go to Bricks > Settings and select Save Bricks Data As Gutenberg Data.
From now on whenever you edit and save in Bricks, your content will be saved as WordPress content, too. So your WordPress and Bricks data are in sync.
