WordPress has introduced a new plugin that uses Block Diffusion to generate images from text prompts. Announced in a blog post on September 16, the advanced machine learning model will enable users to generate unique images by inserting desired text as input.
The plugin interfaces with the Replicate API and allows users to run open-source models via their cloud API. One can add the block to a page and select a model to enter the API token. Along with Stable Diffusion, other planned features such as Reverse Image To Prompt, AI Prompt Animation, and Face Restoration are set to be introduced on the platform soon.

Users will be able to activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen on WordPress. Other upcoming features would allow users to use an existing image as a starting point, help with prompt ideas and inspiration, run multiple image predictions at once, view prediction history, and model selection from collections.
In 2021, WordPress claimed over 455 million website uses, empowering 37% of all websites on the internet. As the feature is open source, interested users can also help in supporting the development of this plugin by sponsoring the project on GitHub.
