New WordPress Editor|How To Write A Post With The Gutenberg Editor
So you are ready to start your online journey. That’s good! Here you will know how to write a post with the new wordpress update.
You can earn lot of money from your website but it will take some time (depending upon your hard work and consistency).
In the new WordPress you can write a blog post with the use of “blocks” to help you create your content, rather than a single text input area.
How To Use The New WordPress Gutenberg Editor
- Click this button to add a new block.
- Undo/redo buttons let you move forward or backward to edit easily, just like Microsoft Word.
- This settings area includes many of the same options as the current WordPress editor sidebar. It is where you add categories/tags, set the featured image, choose the publishing date etc.
- When you select an individual block, this settings area includes settings that are specific to that block. It is where you can choose colors, styles, and other important block-specific details.
- These two buttons let you preview or publish your post.
If you want to change the block type then click on the +Plus button to insert a block, it will open a window that lets you browse all available blocks that you can use in your content:
Step 1: Write your text using paragraph blocks
To write the text of your blog post, Gutenberg doesn’t require you to actually add a new block. Instead, you can just click on the page and start writing
All you do is type. And whenever you hit enter to start a new paragraph, Gutenberg will automatically create a new block.
If you want to add a link, change alignment, or format the text with bold or italics, you can just click on the text block and use the floating menu bar:
Step 2: Add an image block
To add an image anywhere in your blog post, all you need to do is point the cursor where you want to insert your image. When you do that, you will see the +Plus icon appear. Clicking on it will open the block list, which will help you choose the Image block.
When you do that, you’ll be able to upload a new image or select an image from your Media Library, just like you do with the current WordPress editor. Once you insert the image block, you’ll see the actual image right there in the editor.
Step 3: Add a table block
The table block lets you insert and manipulate a table anywhere in your content with ease. To do so, you will need to follow the same process as above. And once you add it, you can add or remove rows and columns by using the floating menu bar.
Step 4: Add button block
First, you can insert a button by following the same process similar to other blocks. To edit the button’s text, all you need to do is click and type:. You can also go to the Block tab to change the colors of your button.
You can also use the up and down buttons next to each block to quickly change the positioning of the block i.e. without the old copy and paste method.
