Welcome to Gutenberg
We call the new editor Gutenberg. The entire editing experience has been rebuilt for media rich pages and posts. Experience the flexibility that blocks will bring, whether you are building your first site, or write code for a living.
It seems that Gutenberg has been a term of controversy in the world of WordPress lately. Hailed as the most significant change to WordPress 5.0 this year, the Gutenberg editor has received a mixed response from web developers and regular folk alike. All of this chaos is making it difficult.
What does Gutenberg Change
The sole purpose of the Gutenberg editor is to provide an alternative to the current open text editor, not to mention the difficult-to-remember shortcodes, with an agile and visual user interface (UI). So, unlike the current WordPress editor, you don’t have to:
- import images, multimedia and approved files from the media library or add HTML shortcodes;
- copy and paste links for embeds;
- write shortcodes for specialized assets of different plugins;
- create featured images to be added at the top of a post or page;
- add excerpts for subheads;
- add widgets for content on the side of a page.
Consider a block as the most basic (therefore, smallest) unit of the new editor.

Gutenberg ❤️ Columns
Built for modern times!
Designed with Love.
We recommend migrating features to blocks, but support for existing WordPress functionality remains. There will be transition paths.
Tables? You got them.
Adding a table using custom HTML code was a tedious job. With the table block, however, the task is a lot easier. You are able to add and remove rows and columns of a table without coding.

More for Images
As of Gutenberg 0.5.0, you can now drag and drop images directly into an image block, just like you are used to with the visual editor. And there are several new alignments available with ContentBerg.
Here’s an image set to Align Full Width, that works with our Full Width post style.
Besides just having the standard blockquote which we have been using for years, they also have a new pull quote. And yes, pull quotes are different.
More Gutenberg Blocks
Gutenberg comes with new buttons that work right out of the box with ContentBerg.
Gutenberg is available as a plugin now, and soon by default in version 5.0 of WordPress. The classic editor will be available as a plugin if needed. Competently underwhelm enabled intellectual capital rather than equity.
Whether you like it or not, Gutenberg is coming to WordPress 5.0. Do try to be a part of it.SMASHING MAG
Beautiful Cover Image!
There’s a lot more…
We can only show so many of the blocks without bloating the page to excessive size. There many more Gutenberg blocks that just work. And this is just the beginning. Very exciting times ahead.
Whether you like it or not, Gutenberg is coming to WordPress 5.0. Do try to be a part of the ongoing discussion about it on the web. It will certainly help.
