As for each development environment, using cache ain’t that great. So when you want to build/develop blocks, we would need to disable the “Block Cache”. To make things absolutely work afterwards, we would want to clear the concrete5 cache too. Perhaps not needed in all cases, so if you don’t want to do that and try without, go ahead. In case you do have issues, make sure you clear the cache anyway.

Block Cache

Most likely “Block Cache” is enabled (it’s this way right after installing concrete5). You should disable it and can do so by running the CLI command below:

concrete/bin/concrete5 c5:config set concrete.cache.blocks false

concrete5 cache

Afterwards, you should clear the cache too, which can be done with the following CLI command:

concrete/bin/concrete5 c5:clear-cache

File permissions

Make sure your /application/files and /application/blocks directories are (still) writable too. If you already have the correct file permissions, no worries. In case you do want to set file permissions, that can be done with this command in Linux/Mac OS:

sudo chmod -R 755 application/files/cache

The files should be owned by your user account, and set as 755 on all of them. That means that your web server process can do anything it likes to them, but nothing else can (although everyone can view them, which is expected.) If this isn't possible, another good option is to set the apache user (either "apache" or "nobody") as having full rights to these file. If neither are possible, chmod 777 to files/ and all items within.

Uninstalling the Add-On

In case you decide to uninstall it, first uninstall the Block Types you created with this Add-On. This because Block Types rely on this Add-On, but don't get installed WITH the Add-On, so you can enjoy as much freedom as you'd like. This means you NEED to have this Add-On installed, in order to have your Block Types to work.

You should be ready by now, so... let's go! Create a Block Type.
