It’s been quite a few years since the last time I changed my site’s appearance. Since I’m still on my vacation, I figured it’s finally time to change the theme and the overall look.
I wanted a bit different layout, a simple design with a homepage that is both a static page and a blog, with an accent on full-width. As a Happiness Engineer at Automattic, I am using the new WordPress Block Editor (codename Gutenberg) on a daily basis and it’s usually one of the main areas I cover during the screensharing sessions. I watched this editor evolve over the past three years into a powerful tool that provides a new and improved editing experience compared to the Classic Editor that’s been around since the birth of WordPress.
On my site, I’ve been using the new editor ever since it got released but I never fully converted my website to blocks. Until today 🙂
P.S. If you’re still using the Classic Editor, try giving Gutenberg another shot. It offers a lot more flexibility and it’s evolved a lot since its release. And it’s a lot more fun!
