Add-On Type(s)



Assets Adapter for Blocks is a third-party add-on that enables use of an Assets field within a Blocks block. After installing the Assets Adapter for Blocks extension, Assets will appear in the fieldtype selector when setting up block types.


  • Assets 2.5 or greater
  • Blocks 1.2.0 or greater
  • ExpressionEngine 2.7 or greater


  • Copy system/expressionengine/third_party/assets_adapter_for_blocks to ExpressionEngine’s third party folder.
  • Click “Install” next to Assets Adapter for Blocks under the Extensions screen.

How it Works

Blocks fieldtypes are based strongly on Grid fieldtype support. Assets has
Grid fieldtype support and is very close to supporting Blocks.

Assets Adapter for Blocks creates a shim that augments Assets with the few
small remaining changes that enable it to work seamlessly with Blocks.

The best part: if Assets ever supports Blocks in the future, Assets Adapter
for Blocks simply shuts itself off.
