pages – Are custom shapes of blocks available in WordPress?


I am using WordPress editor to make a page on my website.

On the main page of my website, I want to keep pointers to at least ten other pages.

I can see only some types of blocks in word press such as paragraph block, pre-formatted text block, code block, etc., although I can do my task, all the references appear sequentially one after another. But, I want to keep those pointers using blocks of geometric shapes.

I found no interface yet that shows custom geometric shaped blocks such as rectangle, square, circle, etc., to keep my text and hyperlink the pages to those blocks. You can check here for the shapes of blocks I am asking for. If available, I can arrange 4 blocks in a row and link to all the pages I need to with a link per block.

As a beginner, I don’t know the coding part of the websites in detail. I only know to use the interface given by WordPress.

    I don’t believe this is really possible, save maybe to the extent you are talking about rectangles/squares.

    I posit thst this is not a WordPress thing as much as a limitation of HTML. HTML was designed to abstract content from formatting. Having non-rectangular shapes breaks the model.

    I further posit it is theoretically possible to overcome this using custom javascript – but this is out of the league of even more powerful WordPress editors (Like Divi and Beaver Builder). Beaver Builder/Divi/Elementor will likely give you more control of your formatting, but still limiting you to rectangles.
