WordPress’s new editor Gutenberg provides new flexibility and opportunities for creativity in itself, but there are now plugins available to help improve its performance even more.
The one area where Gutenberg can be frustrating is the columns block. The settings are limited and it can be difficult to get just right. Now there are a few plugins that provide the functionality that has been missing, such as:
So you're excited about using WordPress’s new Gutenberg editor.
Gutenberg is a great tool that offers flexibility and easy creative options. But what happens to all the posts and pages you have already created on your WordPress sites? Will your content look the same after you enable Gutenberg? And how easy is it to take advantage of all the new features?
Gutenberg is more than just blocks. It lets you layout a page using columns, thus providing greater flexibility with the look of your page. You can create columns and rows with a variety of different content in both.
As can be expected with such a new release there are some limitations, but it still represents a great step forward. In this tutorial, you will look at using columns in the WordPress Gutenberg editor.
WordPress 5 is here with a brand new editor that changes the way posts and pages are created and edited. Here we provide an overview on how to use the new editor and what to do when upgrading existing sites.
The new Gutenberg editor uses a block-based system to provide flexibility with how content is displayed. This allows you to insert text, images, multimedia content, code, quote, buttons, and much more, with ease.
This is perhaps the biggest single-day release in the history of open source software. That's no exaggeration. I'm unable to think of any other change that was so significant and was quickly pushed out to over 30% of the web.
Did you know that every WordPress site can embed posts from every other WordPress site? WordPress sites are oEmbed providers.
Out-of-the-box, your embeddable posts will take on the look and feel of the WordPress core default template. In this blog post, you will learn how to make your embeddables consistent with the look and feel of your own template.
If you have a multilingual website, it's worth thinking about the SEO challenges you'll face.
Most website owners only need to optimize for one language. Simply adding another language doubles the amount of optimization work you need to do. Plus, you need to think about another version of Google, with different competitors and different challenges.
Spam is more than an irritation. It can reduce your productivity. Sometimes the spam prevention can be as bad as the spam itself, making your visitors spot similar images, do maths sums or answer questions to prove that they are human.
This can put people off interacting with your website. Fortunately, WordPress has plugins that can handle spam transparently, without creating irritation to either you or your visitors. In this blog post, you will take a look at two of them.
The new Gutenberg editor is due to arrive with WordPress 5.0 on November 27.
We're already starting to see new types of Gutenberg-specific plugin. These aren't old plugins that have a layer of Gutenberg comptability. These are new plugins that a block-first. They're built for the new Gutenberg era.
One of the most popular of these new plugins is Advanced Gutenberg from JoomUnited. This plugin provides over 20 new blocks. It's helpful to think of them in two categories:
Better versions of the default Gutenberg blocks.
Entirely new blocks not covered by the Gutenberg defaults.

Yes, WordPress is going to have a new editor called "Gutenberg".
Up until now, the Gutenberg developers made slow and steady progress. Every two weeks, they released a new version. Each Gutenberg update had more features, more polish, and fewers bugs.
But, we knew almost nothing about when Gutenberg would become WordPress.
Now we know. Last week, we got more Gutenberg news than we did in the rest of 2018 combined. We got timetables, roadmaps, and technical breakdowns. We even got tantilizing glimpses into Phases 2, 3 and 4 of the Gutenberg project.
I'm going to give you a short summary of everything Matt and the WordPress team announced.
The new Gutenberg editor is nearly here and the WordPress landscape is about to change in a big way.
Many plugins are themes are going to be impacted. In particular, people are curious how page-builder plugins such as Beaver Builder and Visual Composer will respond. The answer, looking at BoldGrid, another popular plugin in the same niche, is to do more. BoldGrid doesn't just build pages, it builds complete websites. It allows you to build an entire WordPress website without any code and in a ridiculously short amount of time.
BoldGrid provides layouts, themes, an SEO plugin and more. It also has developer-friendly tools such as Staging plugin and a Backup plugin. All-in-all, it offers far more than BoldGrid will ever offer. It's a website builder, rather than a page builder.
