Using Zola Blocks

Use Zola Blocks to display a selection of items from your Zola wedding registry. This is a great way for visitors to browse your registry without leaving your wedding site. Visitors can click any item in the block to view or purchase it from Zola.

If you don’t have a Zola registry yet, you can create one here.

Add a Zola Block

To add a Zola Block:

  1. Click Edit on a page or post.
  2. Click an insert point. For more details on these first steps, visit Adding blocks.
  3. Select Zola from the menu.
  4. In the Zola Block editor, enter your Registry Name. This is the end of your Zola registry's URL. For example, if your registry URL is www.zola.com/registry/johnandjane, you’ll enter johnandjane as your registry name.
  5. Select the number of items to display in the block using the Items to Display slider, up to 12. Zola Blocks pull items randomly from the registry.
  6. Check Add Padding to add space around the block. This is ideal if your site doesn’t have a white background, as it helps the block contrast with the rest of your content.
  7. Click Apply to save your changes.

Zola Blocks look like the example below.
