Note that there is a block called classic which gives you the classic editor functionality still. Or you could be brave and switch to blocks now?

Blocks are so much easier than the classic and wordpress have really improved them. You can do so much with them. WordPress.com have really enhanced their functionality and given so much more

List of some of the common items I use with the block editor

From multiple columns with no html coding. To reusable block read my post here.

Drop case lettering at the beginning of a paragraph .

You can use a background colour on your paragraph block.

You can use columns with no html , obviously they wont show up on a mobile.

Column 1

Column 3

Here are my last 3 blog posts using the blog block, rather than using the link feature. Making for a much prettier blog post. You can change what blog post is displayed.

Change is scary but forced change hurts. Change with confidence and faith in yourself and you will enjoy yourself.

  1. You and I have talked about that in the past. I’m not the biggest fan and would prefer to stay with the editor I am currently using. I’m not sure why they are throwing it away yet keeping the other one (apparently there are 2 old editors).

    I do like the blog block from what you’ve mentioned. I foresee myself using that option to link to my old posts.
