6. Formatter Block

The formatter block must be used with the SonataBlockBundle as it provides a native block to handle rich editor. It can be a quick way to build small websites with rich blocks.

6.1. Installation

  • Make sure SonataBlockBundle is installed;

  • Make sure the block bundle is correctly configured;

  • Add the sonata.formatter.block.formatter ID to the sonata_block configuration.

The block service is now available.


While this block can be used to handle and to manage contents, this is not a good solution to persist content. If you want to build a large website, then review the Symfony CMF project.
