The Square Grid block is similar to the Title Grid block but with different styling.
The layout – at wider screen widths – uses a square grid system of 4 columns and 1 or 2 rows (this becomes 2 columns and 2 or 4 rows at narrower screen widths).
There is a maximum of eight Tiles. The square format will only be maintained at wider screen widths, when added content does not exceed the default size and when the block is not nested within a Columns block or other block that restricts its width.
Individual tiles may, optionally, span multiple columns and / or rows. With column span enabled, the grid will be filled up with any number of blocks.
There are three Tile types: Post, Latest Post and one-off content.
The one-off content is added in a text editor and an image can be added as a background or displayed without overlaid text.
Col Span: Yes | No – this determines whether Tiles can span more than 1 column to fill more space in the grid
Row Span: Yes | No – this determines whether Tiles can span more than 1 row to fill more space in the grid
Tile Gap: sets whether there is any gap between Tiles

Excerpt type: for Posts, none excludes an excerpt; standard excerpt matches the Post Archives, using the excerpt word length set in Customiser > Theme Settings or the manual excerpt if set; custom excerpt length will use the word length set in Excerpt length, it will not use any manual excerpt
Excerpt length: for Post Tiles with custom Excerpt type, from 5 up to a maximum of 100 (the actual length won’t be longer than the excerpt length set for the site)
