What Are Blocks in Gutenberg?

By Courtney | Uncategorized

I’m sure by now you have heard about the new editor in WordPress, known as Gutenberg. If you haven’t updated to WordPress 5.0, then you are in for a big surprise. The new editor is very different, not just in the way it looks but in the way it functions too.

Gutenberg,  the new editor, uses blocks to format content. You can drag and drop these blocks to create different layouts for your blog posts. Luckily, Winning WP has an excellent article that explains the blocks very well.

The article covers:

  • What blocks are
  • How to use the blocks
  • What type of blocks are available
  • What to do if you don’t want to use blocks

So check the article out before you start using Gutenberg.

  • Thank you for this valuable resource, Courtney. I am now ready to face the future of WordPress with Gutenberg!
