The new WordPress Gutenberg editor is a completely new content creation experience from the Classic Editor.

With the release of WordPress 5 they have rolled out a completely new editor based on a block system.

Some love it, many hate it.

But it’s here to stay, so we all better get used to it!

Confused?

You’re not the only one. This lesson will explain what the new WordPress Gutenberg Editor, and start to introduce the whole concept behind the switch.

WordPress Gutenberg Editor

Welcome back, in this module we’re going to cover how to use this new editor called Gutenberg that was released with WordPress version 5.0. This module is going to cover three different topics. We’re going to answer the question, what is Gutenberg? We’re going to cover how to work with Gutenberg blocks.

We’re going to cover how to work with the new editor interface. Let’s go ahead and jump in.

What is Gutenberg? Well, Gutenberg is a completely new approach to working with content on your WordPress site. When WordPress 5.0 was released, it introduced this completely new content creation experience called Gutenberg. It’s a completely new approach compared to how the previous editions of WordPress worked.

Why did they do this? Well, the goal was to create a tool that creators could use that would give them the ability to create richer posts that contain various media elements like having the ability to have greater control over how pages and post look.

It’s an attempt to take the content creation experience to a more interactive and real-world level. The goal is to bridge the gap between the WordPress editor screen with all its various fields and a true what you see is what you get editor.

It provides you the ability to create a media-rich experience on your posts and pages by using a new tool called blocks. Blocks give you the ability to create and work with different kinds of media in a simple and intuitive way.

Blocks give you the flexibility to easily create new and enhanced layouts for posts and pages. That means that you can insert rearrange and style blocks to suit your needs for your posts and pages as much or as little as you’d like.

Blocks empower you to add, create and manage various different kinds of media. That means audio, video, images, and embeds. Blocks don’t interfere with your old posts.

If you’ve already got content created on your WordPress site, you don’t have to worry about it because it’s not going to hurt them in any way. Blocks don’t affect how your visitors see the content. The only thing they see is the enhanced media that you’ve added to your content.

Ultimately, Blocks make working with media and the poster page itself easier and more intuitive across the board. All of this is done without having to worry about learning how to code any of these features.

At the end of the day, if you don’t like working with this new editor, you can revert to the classic editor by adding the classic editor plugin to your site through your WordPress dashboard under plugins.
