How To Use The Gutenberg Editor

With the new Gutenberg Editor, WordPress has made major changes to the way that users use and update content. Rather than add everything into a body field, users add “blocks” – which are pieces of content that make up the complete web page.

Some example blocks are images, videos, titles, embeds, paragraphs, etc. The Gutenberg Editor allows the user to move things around and configure the blocks in different ways. These blocks are also displayed more like they would be shown on the live version of the site.

Here are a few guides that we have found helpful to use the Gutenberg Editor:
