Attributes and services to stop blocks from being created anywhere. Built for Optimizely 12 but could possibly be adapted to earlier versions quite easily.


> dotnet add package Shorthand.Optimizely.AllowedParents


Add the service interceptor in your Startup.cs file like this.

public void ConfigureServices(IServiceCollection services) {

Then annotate your blocks like this.

    DisplayName = "Container block",
    Description = "Container that is the only place where SpecificBlock should be used.",
    GUID = "03d80863-d9d0-46b2-90a5-a90cc5bc6fd7")]
public class ContainerBlock : BlockData {
        Name = "Container",
        Description = "Container for specific blocks.",
        GroupName = SystemTabNames.Content,
        Order = 1)]
    public virtual ContentArea? Container { get; set; }

    DisplayName = "Speific block",
    Description = "A specific block that only makes sense within a container block.",
    GUID = "
public class SellingPointBlock : BlockData {

Or if you have a block that should never be created except by code.

    DisplayName = "Footer block",
    GUID = "183eccc7-1e21-4501-a0cf-ba38f6828908")]
public class FooterBlock : BlockData {
