‘WordPress’ has been praised for its simplicity. Everything about the site is user-friendly. From the editor to the dashboard, ‘WordPress’ makes learning truly effortless. Now comes a new editor, ‘Gutenberg,’ that takes simplicity to a whole new level!
What is ‘Gutenberg?’
‘Gutenberg’ in short, is a new editor ‘WordPress’ announced earlier. The editor takes ‘simplicity’ to a whole new level. Imagine if you could reorganize your entire post with a few mouse clicks. Or, perhaps, you could add an image, audio, or video with the click of a mouse. Too good to be true? Not with ‘Gutenberg’ it isn’t. You can simply add blocks of text, and move them around later on! Similarly to that of ‘Lego.’
The goal of this new editor is to make adding rich content to WordPress simple and enjoyable. This whole post is composed of pieces of content—somewhat similar to LEGO bricks—that you can move around and interact with.
Editing images have never been easier, all thanks to the new editor. Now, you can simply click on a desired image, change crop it, and change its size directly! All within 3 seconds! You can even set the image to 25%, 50%, 75% or 100% of the original image’s size, making shrinking and growing the image a walk in the park! Fancy a more accurate measurement? Try the custom image editor! Enter the desired image’s width and length, and bam! Brand new image!
Dropcaps! About time!
About time, yeah? Up until this point, the current editor provides no option to add ‘drop caps’ to the beginning of each paragraphs. With the new editor, all you need to do, is select the ‘drop cap’ option from the sidebar, and simply click on it to insert a ‘drop cap’ to the beginning of the desired paragraph.
Now, you can highlight the background of your texts with any color of your choice! Much like ‘Microsoft’s’ highlight feature, the new ‘Gutenberg’ editor will allow you to change the background color of your text blocks. Fancy a bright blue to emphasize that photography of yours? Go for it. Perhaps a green background for added naturality (that’s a word, right)?
