VIDEO: How to add a new blog post in WordPress using the Gutenberg Block Editor Print

To create a new post or page, navigate to either posts or pages in the sidebar, and click add new. The process will be the same for either experience. So, for this video, I will be making a post.

The next screen will take you to the gutenberg editor, which you can get an overview of in another video. First, let's add a title to our page, this block is required and cannot be removed like other blocks can.

From here, you can start adding content to the default block that's already created. If you prefer the classic content editor from previous versions, you can change the block type to 'classic'.

If after adding your content, you decide you want to switch to blocks, you can click the options button and then: 'convert to blocks', which will automatically convert any images, text or other content into their respective block type.

Once you're happy with your content. You can preview what you post or page will look like. And if you're still making changes, make sure to save your document as a draft. Click: 'publish' when you're ready for your post or page to go live.

Encode and I had a very useful discussion about Wordpress and related issues at no cost to myself. He gave me some very helpful information and answered the questions I had.

I learnt quite a lot! Thank you.

I am very excited to work again with Neil. His attention to detail is second to none. I have seen his work in action in the past and he is great. I love his calm approach and his patient guidance to non-tech people like me. I would highly highly reccommend him!

Neil is the best! He has sorted out all our business emails and everything runs a great deal better now. Website issues are now a thing of the past as Neil has introduced a maintenance programme to ensure the site is always working optimally and any content changes are actioned pretty much immediately.

Highly recommended!!

'Encode' provided my hosting and domain transfers. They were able to deal with the technicalities of the transfer in a particularly speedy manner, taking all the worry of the transfer, domain issues DNS and nameserver headaches as well as the migration. A couple of emails, and phone call meant it was done smoothly, swiftly and efficiently. All I can say is I'm really please they were recommended to me. Thank you
