    BLOCK: Grid listing block

    Grid listing block allows editors to set a list of items in a grid and allow some control over the layout of that grid. Editors can choose to filter by page type. For now, we have limited page types with the ability to add more in future sprints. We started with Staff Page as this page has a very specific view/layout. We added generic page since this is the most commonly used page type.
