December 2019 Meetup


The Block Editor (aka Gutenberg) – 1 Year Later

One year ago the classic content editor in WordPress was replaced with Gutenberg, now known as the block editor. The block editor introduces a completely new way of creating content in WordPress. Everything is a block!

If you have not been using the new editor for the last year, it’s time to start considering it. Most of the major/popular plugins and themes are now fully Gutenberg compatible. Some plugins and themes are even starting to introduce new features that are only available as blocks. Come out and see what Gutenberg brings to WordPress and why you should consider using it if you are not already.

Presented by: Rick Radko
