The Latest Gutenberg Editor Update Has Many Goodies

If you’re a regular WordPress user, you probably know that Gutenberg is now a default WP editor.

The Gutenberg editor was first rolled out as part of the WordPress 5 Version in early 2018. Since then, it has been steadily improving and becoming more stable with each new update.

Gutenberg editor replaced the previous classic editor that used (WYSIWYG) and lets users create content through a series of customizable blocks.

In some ways, it’s similar to popular drag and drop website builders, including Elementor and WPBakarey composer. However because it’s fairly new, it’s lacking some of the more sophisticated tools found in those apps.

The WordPress developers continue to make big strides in turning Gutenberg into a fully-fledged editor. The latest Gutenberg update 9.2 is no exception. It includes many improvements users will like.

Initially, like many other long time users of WordPress, I switched back to the classic editor when Gutenberg first came out. However, after my initial hesitation, I gave it another try and found it to be much more stable and user-friendly. It is now my preferred tool for publishing posts. I still prefer Elementor for building pages, but with each new update, Gutenberg keeps getting better and there will come a day when you will no longer need to use 3rd party tools to build complex layouts inside WordPress.
