The Block Editor is the new post/page editing style of WordPress. Previously known as Gutenberg (a plugin), named after Johannes Gutenberg, the inventor of the printing press, it was later released as WordPress Core functions in version 5.0.
The Block Editor in WordPress allows users to create and edit content using a block-based approach. Each block represents a particular type of content, such as a paragraph, image, video, or button, and can be easily customized and arranged on the page.
The Block Editor aims to make it easier for users to create rich and dynamic content without having to rely on code or external plugins.
In the Block Editor, users can easily add, edit, and delete blocks, as well as move them around the page to create unique and engaging layouts. The editor also offers a range of formatting options, including text styles, colors, and alignment, as well as a library of reusable blocks and templates.
