Tips and Tricks to Master the WordPress Block Editor

A few weeks ago, Rina and Greg talked about WordPress.

The block editor is a feature that allows users to create their own blocks. And it’s a new addition to WordPress.
The drag and drop elements available on WordPress allow you to format your text in a way where it doesn’t show up as one big block (like it used to).

WordPress offers some pre-done types of content

Aveda and Elementor offer many types of pre-done content on WordPress including, checklists, titles, and other built-in functions. You’re able to take advantage of the functionalities there.

You don’t need to buy any other fancy plugin editors

Unless you want fancy items. Many things can be done without any coding skills. But rather, this is a nice and easy way of being able to do these things.
You have more control over your content, and your website, without having to invest in the coding.
Using the provided writing blocks, you can pick how many columns you want. From there, move and adjust them around if the content doesn’t fit where you imagined.

The older WordPress site had many limitations

WordPress has been able to upgrade from its old version. Before, they had a large, blank space where you could put in a bunch of text and an image to the right or left of that.
Greg mentions that the block builders are still developing. They were not great when first implemented, yet they are much better now. The drag and drop functionality, for example, is a plus, and something that most page builders have.
Another functionality on the WordPress site is being able to create a layout or style in your site. You can create a template so that you can reuse the same template for many pages.
So the next time you go in to write, you’ll have your template. Here’s how: select the template, insert, and reuse the block to save time.
