  1. I’m still using the classic editor. I might be the only one…
    But I remember playing with the blocks a little and seeing the potential for reusable blocks. It would save some times instead of copying and pasting from other posts. One day I will get to it. Or not. LOL.

    1. Okay. It isn’t that bad. It is great for editing. There are times I find it annoying, but most times I love it. Oh yeah and there are a ton of preset tables that you can use in your posts.

      It isn’t that bad if you ever move over to the block editor.

      But totally understand

  3. your layout is always impressively professional … I have refused to use the new editor so this is all above my head … if I find time in the next few days I may try it … I’m a bit of a luddite!

    1. Oh no you are not a luddite. Actually, it so much fun. You have paragraphs blocks or sentences. Because they are in blocks, you can move them up and down, or even complete remove them with so much easy. No copy, paste, or cut and paste, or highlight and delete. Oh it makes such a difference, honestly.

      Give it a go. It might feel weird, but after a short while you will love it…

    2. Kate, your posts are beautiful. Your layouts, your images and your poetic words are all stunning.

      I think blocks just make it easier to edit.

      At first I found them annoying and went back to classic. But the Hugh said in a post of his, classic will discontinued . So I just jumped in to blocks. Because my mind set was different, ie. I have no choice, I started to use to it fairly fast. Some things are annoying only because I haven’t got the hang of it. But all in all blocks are fab when it comes to editing. 🥰❣🤩😉
