The Block Editor

New 26 Aug 2021

This is a very different editor from the Classic Editor we have been using in Glow Blogs.

In the Gutenberg Editor, also called the Block Editor, content is arranged in blocks. Each paragraph, image, or video is presented as a distinct “block” of content.

Each block comes with its own controls for changing colour, alignment and other features.

More information on the blogs Editor will be added to the help blog over time. Meanwhile there is more information on WordPress.org: WordPress Editor

Currently the default editor in Glow Blogs is still the Classic Editor. Site Admins can change this. They can set the default editor to either classic or Gutenberg and allow other users of the blog to change editor or not.

They do this by visiting Settings-> Writing in the dashboard:

We would advise thinking carefully before activating the new editor.  It is quite different. It may be best to allow users to switch and test it out.
