So, today in this article, I will show you how to make the entire WordPress block container clickable using GenerateBlocks.

GenerateBlocks is my favorite WordPress block editor plugin that can do almost anything to create a beautiful and fast-loading website without any page builder.

It has a lot of features to add to your website. Using GenerateBlocks, you can add various block containers, custom buttons, post layouts, page heroes, etc.

So now, without any further ado, let’s move on to making the entire WordPress block container clickable using GenerateBlocks and custom CSS code.

Moreover, in this article, you’ll learn:

  • How to Install the GenerateBlocks Plugin
  • How to Apply Custom CSS Code and class(es)

First, you need to install the GenerateBlocks plugin.


Install GenerateBlocks Plugin

To install the GenerateBlocks plugin:

  • Go to your WordPress admin dashboard area
  • Click on Plugins > Add New, and search for GenerateBlocks
  • Click Install Now button, and then Activate it

If you wish to use the GenerateBlocks Pro plugin to add more helpful features to your website, go to the generateblocks.com site, log in to your account and download the pro plugin file.

Now go to your WordPress admin dashboard area, Plugins > Add New, and click on the Upload Plugin button.

Browse the plugin file you earlier downloaded on your computer, select it, and then click on Install Now button.

Now you’re ready to use the GenerateBlocks Pro features.

While you can also make the entire WordPress block container clickable using the free GenerateBlocks plugin. But the Pro version will allow you to add more features to your website that everyone wants.


Create Content Using Container Block

Create some content using the GenerateBlocks container block, such as any product block, query loop (posts) container block, or anything you want.

In my case, I’m going to add a prebuilt query loop container block on the website home page for my latest posts using the GenerateBlocks plugin.

To add a Query Loop latest posts container block:

  • First, click on the Toggle block inserter tab on the page or the Add Block button

Add CSS to Make Entire Block Container Clickable

To make the entire WordPress block container clickable, first copy the CSS code below.

/* To make the whole block container clickable */
.gb-container.linked-container .gb-inside-container {
    position: relative;
}

.gb-container.linked-container a:before {
    content: "";
    position: absolute;
    top: 0;
    right: 0;
    bottom: 0;
    left: 0;
    z-index: 10;
}

Now go to Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS, paste the above CSS code and click on the Published button to save the changes.

  • Finally, go to the page and select the container you want to make clickable.
  • Now go to the container settings on the right side, and click the Advanced tab.
  • Paste this CSS class linked-container inside the Additional CSS class(es) and save the changes.
