The New WordPress 5.0

Earlier this month, the schedule for rolling out WordPress 5.0 (including Gutenberg – the new block editor) was announced: https://make.wordpress.org/core/2018/10/03/proposed-wordpress-5-0-scope-and-schedule/

Even though Gutenberg will be officially part of WordPress in version 5.0, you can still download it as a plugin and start using it. (This post is written using Gutenberg editor ;-))

The numerous benefits of using Gutenberg for the following are the ones that I like the most:

  • Instead of editing through inline text you now use blocks.
  • You can easily drag and drop blocks from one place to another in a wordpress post.
  • Third party services have integration with guttenberg, for instance when I copied the meetup link in this post it automatically became a widget.
  • Works with almost any theme.
  • We will  be talking about Gutenberg and wordpress 5.0 in the upcoming meetup. If you want to learn and need help using Gutenberg, this would be the perfect opportunity. So don’t forget to register using the below:
