Rather than re-invent the wheel and create a new series of WordPress tutorials, I’m creating a list of links to some recommended resources to help you begin using blocks in the new Gutenberg Editor for WordPress, available with release 5.0. It is a significant mental shift from the old WordPress editor but offers the kind of customization folks have wanted without the coding.
Check out that fact that you can directly embed most social media as well as Youtube videos and much more, plus you can directly include tables without the custom CSS and widgets like Recent Posts without a sidebar. Just, please, don’t go crazy with all of the color settings and design options available for each block. Keep It Simple, Sweetie!
WPBeginner.com: A clear step-by-step beginner’s guide to using WordPress blocks with clear screen images and explanations. WPBeginnger.com is also a great resource for most beginner questions about WordPress.
For those preferring video, here are some introductory guides and some information on going beyond the basic blocks.
