  • Introducing Gutenberg

    Gutenberg is a new rich text editing experience that changes the way you create pages and posts. It turns the normal editing experience into a block-based editing format with significantly more features.

    Gutenberg allows users to design posts and pages with more control and flexibility than ever before. It even allows for some widgets to be placed within the page, without use of shortcode or HTML knowledge.

    Some of the new blocks

    • Image Gallery
    • Columns
    • Separator
    • Button

    Don’t like Gutenberg?

    If you don’t like using Gutenberg, there is no need to worry. You can enable the ‘Classic Editor’ plugin in your admin dashboard to go back to the old editor.
