    A re-blog of today’s post on GC and my site Weekly Prompts.

    This is our final guide to Block Editor that is due to become the WordPress default editor from tomorrow (Monday 1st June). This guide is a condensed guide to writing a first post using the Block editor. An alternative to the official WordPress guides.


  2. Sue, I have another blogging friend who I’m sure would be very interested in your 3 posts….Block Editor. It’s all Greek to me, but I’m thinking it would be a godsend to her.

    Would you mind if I forward your 3 posts to her? If that’s a problem, not to worry. I wouldn’t do it without your permission.

  3. Oh WOW, aren’t you brilliant and helpful!! I elected to experiment and “wing it” during the wee hours of night/morning…took patience and effort, but I succeeded…and if I can do it, anyone can 🙂 Thanks much for these articles–I may still need them!!

    1. Thanks Lisa. I have a background in IT and I was a computer teacher, so easier for me than most people. I picked up Blocks last year but came away because it wasn’t stable🙂

  4. I saw from Derrick’s blog that he has been trying to follow your advice re. the new block editor. I decided to investigate and here I am. Thank you very much for the useful guides which I will try to follow, too. I am a real dunce when it comes to anything technological as my family would tell you as they sigh and tut and shrug in my direction!

    1. I wouldn’t worry about being a nontechie, I’ll bet you have plenty of other skills. There are a million and one things I am hopeless at. And I would love to be able to draw! Thank you so much for your comments, Clare 🙂
