Here are some good tips on using the Gutenberg Editor from Colleen.

AND THE GUTENBERG EDITOR ALL AT ONE TIME
OH JOY!

PLEASE NOTE: I FOUND AN ARTICLE THAT IS A GREAT REFERENCE ON EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE EDITOR: https://ezseonews.com/blog/gutenberg-tutorial/. This article answered many of my questions. ~Colleen~

“Gutenberg” is the name of the new editor experience onWordPress. Their goal was to create a new post and page editing experience that makes it easy for anyone to create rich post layouts.

First let me say, that I have been using the new editor for a few days. It’s different, but I’m not struggling with using it. The layout is simple, and you can figure everything out by clicking the + to the left of each paragraph when you begin typing.

I’ve found the scheduling feature to be glitchy, and have had to click on each part of the date and time in order to get the scheduler to accept…

    I tried to look in on it when it was first announced, but it all went to quick using words and expressions that was absoliutely unfamiliar to me. We are not all educated programmers! So I left it alone. The old Classic Editor works fine for me!
    Thank you!

      I wonder if the guidelines for the new editor are in languages besides English. That would certainly be helpful, wouldn’t it? I found it frustrating at first but it’s getting easier as I go along. One of my followers said his photos can’t be enlarged so this could be a concern for you, as well.

      As long as the old classic editor is available, I would stick with it if I were you.

    Thanks, Eugenia for sharing this post. The more I use the editor, the more I like it. I did a website that teaches you everything you need to know on this post. That should really help folks. ❤

      You’re welcome, Colleen. I agree and the more I use it the more I like it. It’s has great organizational features. Thank you for sharing your knowledge on the new editor. I’ve noticed a lot of frustrated folks that just need a little extra help.

        I agree. Too much negative hype that didn’t need to be. LOL! Hugs, for all your hard work. ❤

    I tried using the new format. I wasn’t impressed, the linking did not go through and I couldn’t control the page lay out. I wonder why they decided to fix what isn’t broken

      I have issues with the linking, as well. I am finally getting use to it but can’t say I like it. I read an article in the “WordPress Tavern” informing that the old classic editor will be available until 2022, if not longer. That’s good news for a lot of folks.
