How the Gutenberg Editor Works

The Gutenberg editor in WordPress employs the idea of distinct content blocks for the purpose of incorporating and modifying different elements within posts and pages.

Each of these blocks functions as an independent unit, allowing you to personalize and manage them, thus granting comprehensive authority and adaptability. To illustrate, you have the ability to establish unique background colors or width configurations for a complete block without influencing other components.

To find all blocks, click the Block Inserter + icon. It lists them in a collapsible panel according to their structure. Each of them has a different configuration and design tools.

For example, the paragraph block has options for changing its color and typography. On the other hand, the image block has tools to add alt text and adjust the image dimensions.

WordPress' most recent updates bring forth a multitude of novel features within the default content editor, all designed to bolster comprehensive site editing capabilities. These enhancements encompass:

1. Site Editing: This feature facilitates seamless editing and navigation across templates, their components, and style choices.

2. Template Editing Mode: A mode that empowers direct manipulation, alteration, and creation of templates for posts or pages.

3. Block Theme: Construct WordPress themes using blocks that are compatible with Full Site Editing (FSE).
4. Styling: This functionality permits style adjustments at three levels - overarching modifications, specific block-level alterations, and theme-wide defaults.

5. Theme Blocks: Generate conventional templates utilizing template tags. The existing WordPress editor incorporates blocks like Post Author, Post Comments, Read More, Avatars, and Query Loop.

6. Browsing: Effortlessly traverse between pages, templates, and posts directly within the editor interface.

7. Navigation Block: Modify the structure and aesthetics of a website's navigation menu using this block.

8. Query Block: A replica of WP_Query, enabling personalized enhancements to its functionality.

Furthermore, Gutenberg introduces block patterns, which comprise pre-arranged collections of blocks. Typically, these encompass layouts with multiple columns, assorted button configurations, and diverse image compositions.

Seasoned WordPress users and developers can even forge their own WordPress blocks and block patterns, sharing these creations with others through plugins.
