Ahhh the screams and horrors that have occurred after the infamous WordPress 5.0 update. My phone has not stopped ringing with issues with clients’ websites because of this update. But it’s ok!!!!! Here’s everything you need to know about the new Gutenberg Editor for WordPress.
What is the Gutenberg Editor?
Very simple put, it is an update to the classic WordPress editor. To be fair, WordPress has not updated that thing for a looooong time. It was definitely time for an update. It has the same features as before plus some amazing new ones but a new look and feel.
How will this update effect my website?
For the most part, it won’t. Your hosting company should have done updates on their server to prepare for this. If you are not sure, simple email them or check their updates area for more information. There have been some people who have been having issues with other kinds of visual builders. I haven’t run across any issues so for with Divi but I have seen other themes that weren’t quite ready for the update it seems. If you have having issues, please contact myself or your theme maker and have them take a look for you.
How do I use the Gutenberg editor?
Now for the fun part! Here’s a quick video to show you how to add images, videos, and more using the Gutenberg Editor.
