How is Gutenberg installed?

The latest version of Gutenberg can be downloaded from the WordPress repository. It can also be installed in the plugin directory on the “Add plugin” page of the WordPress dashboard.

Details on the Gutenberg editor

As soon as the installation of Gutenberg is completed, further links will be visible in the list of posts under the posts. Every existing post in Gutenberg can be accessed with this. This gives you the option to switch between the classic and the Gutenberg editor.

Gutenberg will be a great change for all users who are on the go on laptop computers. With the new editor, the main focus is on writing. This ensures distraction-free work.

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

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

A toolbar is displayed when a block is selected. Blocks can be moved up or down using the navigation arrows. You can also delete the blocks or define settings for formatting. It all works perfectly on the phone too.

Table block and text column block

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

Live HTML Block

Your own code can be inserted and viewed as a preview within the block.

Insert images using drag and drop

With the Gutenberg Editor, images can be inserted directly into an image block using drag and drop.

Cover text options

With the Gutenberg Editor, new visual styles and change options for the cover text block were introduced. You can change font size, choose initial letter and change colors with the new customizable color palette.

Table of contents and anchor links

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

Number of words and blocks

In the new Gutenberg Editor, this information is displayed in a pop-up window. The total number of words, blocks and headings are listed.


Gutenberg has an integration for adding buttons.
