Although WordPress developers and professionals have been inundated with Gutenberg news for more than a year, there’s a whole wide world of users who will learn about the project for the first time when 4.9.8 includes a “Try Gutenberg” prompt in the admin. If you haven’t been following the news closely and are wondering what all of this Gutenberg talk is about, Morten Rand-Hendriksen provides a succinct introduction to the new editor that is coming in WordPress 5.0.
The video was created as part of LinkedIn’s WordPress Essentials Training course. The first part explains the basic concept of a block and includes a mini tour of the new interface, followed by a short overview of where the Gutenberg project is going in the future.
Thanks for sharing this. We (so me + the entire production team at LinkedIn Learning) are preparing to release a full update to WordPress Essential Training when WordPress 5.0 and the Block Editor (nee “Gutenberg”) is released. This video is one of three new videos we’ve added to the existing course to keep people appraised of what Gutenberg is, how to test it, and how to provide feedback.
