serialize_block ( $block )
Parameters:
  • (WP_Block_Parser_Block) $block A single parsed block object.
    Required: Yes
Returns:
  • (string) String of rendered HTML.
Defined at:
Codex:

Returns the content of a block, including comment delimiters, serializing all attributes from the given parsed block.

This should be used when preparing a block to be saved to post content. Prefer render_block when preparing a block for display. Unlike render_block, this does not evaluate a block's render_callback, and will instead preserve the markup as parsed.
