WordPress 4.9.8 Release with “Try Gutenberg” Callout

The WordPress (v 4.9.x) that we know now is being evolved into a WordPress of tomorrow through the integration of Gutenberg editor in WordPress 5.0. The current default TinyMCE editor is being replaced with Gutenberg editor.  This changes everything and for everyone. Everything is Gutenberg blocks and learning Gutenblocks is very important to stay updated with WordPress. For that purpose a dedicated site was planned beginning of the year 2017 but now I have setup a yet another Gutenberg practicing site My Notes.

Familiarizing with Gutenberg Editor

During the WordCamp US 2017, the Gutenberg editor was  the major highlight of the conference. There was lot of press coverage before, during and after Nashville (TN) conference. During that period, I too started learning and familiarizing Gutenberg editor, but realized that it was still in active development and many of its features were not ready for use.

Try Gutenberg CallOut

The latest WordPress 4.9.8 released with “Try Gutenberg” Callout just couple of days before. This is probably the time to spend time to familiarize the Gutenberg editor.

The Gutenberg editor is evolving constantly and its UI changes with every new development iteration (based on users feedback). It is important to be on the loop to take advantage of the new editor for better content management.

A Try Gutenberg Site

To learn, familiarize and practice Gutenberg editor, yet another site My Notes & Try Gutenberg (a demo site) have been setup. Its main goal is to manage all contents using Gutenberg editor only and document all learning-notes. I have been practicing on and off from the beginning of this year but this will be my systematic approach to learn, familiarize and document Gutenberg editor.

Thought Series

In this series I plan to document my experiments & experiences periodically but at least once a month in a thought series.
