Creating and Editing Pages and Blog Posts with the New WordPress Editor

These are updated instructions on how to create and edit the marketing content for your website using the WordPress editor.

These instructions are specific to the new Gutenberg editor, known as Gutenberg, which is active today on the club websites hosted as part of the WordPress for Toastmasters project and will become standard across all WordPress sites with the release of WordPress 5.0.

Inserting a block

The idea behind Gutenberg is to organize documents around “blocks” of content and provide specialized editors for paragraph blocks versus heading blocks versus image blocks and so on.

WordPress for Toastmasters takes advantage of this approach in its new agenda editor, with special blocks for meeting roles. However, here I’m concentrating on the tools you will use to customize your home page and create blog posts that tell the story of what makes your club special.
