#44926 closed feature request (invalid)

Add fixed block template option

Request to have an additional template_lock option beyond all and insert. The use case: faculty bio CPTs have several required components, so a block template is helpful in setting up the blocks that are required. However, they also often have additional information after the required content which varies in content and format. We currently handle this with ACF but it would be so much nicer to handle in Core. I envision a fixed option for template_lock which allows theme and plugin developers to set up a block template in which the template itself cannot be changed - no deleting of the required blocks, no additions before or between the required blocks, but the writer can add, edit, and delete blocks after (beneath) the templated blocks.
