Introduction To WordPress Gutenberg Block Editor And Why Use It For Beginners (Video 1)
So this is video number one which is the introduction. So let’s talk about Gutenberg and a little bit about it. Gutenberg was created as more of a drag and drop dynamic editor. Now there are pros and cons, so I want to make sure that you are able to see both sides.
Some of the pros include the following number one: it provides more screen space number two, it’s more dynamic with blocks and number three blocks are fun to use. So when I talk about blocks, I’m talking about image, blocks, audio blocks and different types of blocks that fit different media, and we’ll talk more about that in just a second and what’s cool about this, is you can drag and drop them? You can move them around.
Very very easily and number four. It also works great on mobile. Now the primary con or disadvantage is that, although it’s listed as beginner friendly, the reality is that it has so many options that it can get really quite confusing, and that is why we will go over most of the important areas in this video course.
With. That said, I like to give you a quick overview of what’s inside this video course, so you know exactly what to expect. So this is video number one. Obviously, video number two we’re going to give you a quick overview of the user interface.
Video number three we’re going to talk about the different types of blocks, so that you’re, aware of the many blocks that are available to you. Video number four will talk about using the sidebar, which is, on the right hand, side that pertains to each block and number five we’ll talk about common blocks that are available to you and, of course, video number six will talk about formatting blocks.
So, as you can see here, I’m breaking it up into simplified videos. I don’t want to put all of these into one video to overwhelm you all right. So video number seven we’ll talk about layout elements and video number eight we’ll talk about if you’re not ready for Gutenberg – and you do not like the editor after you’ve seen all of this.
How do you go about disabling it? How do you go about reverting to the old classic editor, and this is a big thing. A lot of people do not like Gutenberg, so they prefer to go back to the classic editor.
So we want to make sure that you have the options available to you. If you choose to go down that route, and, of course, last but not least, we’ve got video number nine, which is more editor options in terms of getting started.
It’s pretty self-explanatory. All you need to have is a WordPress site with administrator access, because we are going to log in to the WordPress administrator, dashboard and I’ll show you around.
