WordPress Gutenberg Editor – Quick Start Tutorial – YouTube Video Envato Tuts+

For those who find useful videos or blog posts on how to use the new editor, please comment as my goal is to learn many of the ends and outs of the new editor in the remaining time to ease my transition to it.

If you use WordPress, effective June 1, 2020, you will be forced to use the new editor as they are ending the old editor. I did a check and this was one of the first YouTube videos to show up – WordPress Gutenberg Editor – Quick Start Tutorial – YouTube Video Envato Tuts+: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rld_XRvAOfs (about 13:36 minutes long). There are rumors we will be able to use the old editor after May 31st, but I haven’t seen anything officially from WordPress this will be the case. I doubt they will keep both editors although they may do so briefly. However, as the new editor has been out for a long time, I am not hopeful they will keep the option up too long.

I watched this video before posting. It was made April 2019 so it’s a year old although I am not sure enough has changed to make a difference. I did a quick re-blog where I started with the new editor and switched back to the old editor as it was more confusing than I believe is necessary.

Something tells me I will need more help on things like my theme topics posts or if I do a fuller re-blog like I often do with a few of the things I re-blog. Going to be looking at more videos to see how to deal with those issues.

In my brief playing with the new editor, I figured  out some things easily, but as others have posted, some things are not easy to find. I expect I will be sharing more videos on the new editor as I find solutions to things that I run across. I am not the most tech savvy person by any stretch of the imagination.
