Details about the Gutenberg editor

As soon as the installation of Gutenberg is completed, additional links will be visible in the list of contributions. Any existing post office in Gutenberg can be called up herewith. You have the opportunity to switch between Classic and Gutenberg editor.

Gutenberg will be a great change for all users who travel on laptop computers. The main focus is on writing with the new editor. This ensures distraction-free work.

You can remove the right sidebar in the Gutenberg WordPress editor by clicking on the “Post Settings” button. This takes Gutenberg almost the entire screen.

To switch between the visual editor and the text editor, there is a drop-down list at the top left. For example, this allows you to create a text block.

When marking a block, a toolbar is displayed. Blocks can be moved up or down using the navigation arrows. You can also delete the blocks or specify formatting settings. It all works perfectly on the phone.

Tables block and text column block

Simple tables are now easy to insert as blocks within the editor. There is also the possibility to insert responsive text columns. You can choose between 2,3 and 4-column layout.

Live HTML Block

Own code can be inserted and immediately previewed within the block.

Insert images using drag and drop

With the Gutenberg Editor, images can be dragged and dropped directly into an image block.

Options for Cover Text

The Gutenberg Editor introduced new visual styles and change options for the Cover Text Block. You can change the font size, choose the initial letter, and change the colors with the new customizable color palette.

Table of contents and anchor links

Tables of contents can be positioned in the sidebar. The table of contents contains clickable texts. You can jump to a specific section in a post. This is convenient when writing longer content.
