The new Gutenberg editor

What Is Gutenberg?

Named after Johannes Gutenberg, who invented the mechanical printing press, Gutenberg was introduced to the world by Matt Mullenweg at WordCamp Europe in 2017. In essence, Gutenberg is a new WordPress editor, with dozens of cutting-edge features. It simplifies website creation and editing for the average non-technical user.

It has earned a few honors, from "WordPress' new distributing experience" to "the future of website creation". A few cynics think it is the nail in the pine box for WordPress. All this babble aside, Gutenberg is going to be way more than just an editor for WordPress.

It enables site creators to build a site utilizing blocks, it replaces the current conflicting and diverting customization process. It likewise empowers HTML tags, for example, section and figure, outputting solid HTML.

Gutenberg is something beyond an editorial manager since it enables you to deal with site content in adaptable pieces or blocks. You don't be conversant in HTML or compose shortcodes. You can control a site's whole format (both back end and front end) from a single console.

What Are Blocks?

Consider a block as the most essential (therefore, smallest) unit of the new editor. They are the building blocks of WordPress 5.0. In other words, everything—including content, images, quotes, galleries, cover images, audio, video, headings, embeds, custom codes, paragraphs, separators and buttons—will turn into distinct blocks. Because you can drag and drop each block, identifying these items and placing them on the page becomes a lot easier.
