This is about the Quote Block. It worked reasonably well for the most part. In the last couple of days, it has become useless. I choose new block and go with Quote Block. It pops up and I start typing in the Quote Block. When I hit return, the block is not in quote format.
A partial workaround was to copy a post that had a working Quote Block. I would paste the quote I wanted in place of the original quote. Tonight, it wasn’t letting me do that. As soon as I went to a new line, the block reverted to Paragraph Block. I spent a lot of time trying to get around the issue.
It’s a pain as the Quote Block worked much of the time although it frequently reverted to Paragraph Block when I started a new block.
I even tried the WP-Admin post section switching to the old Classic Editor, and it reverted to Paragraph Block as soon as I went to a new line. This was on my laptop. Haven’t tried it on my phones yet as trying to copy text is difficult enough.
I did a quick test on my Tello phone and it let me create a Quote Block. I scheduled it for late tomorrow and will check it in the morning to see if it will let me switch out text with the quoted text I want to use.
To me, this is not an improvement. I know some love the new block system, but when I spent a lot of time trying to get it do what it should let me do and it won’t, that’s a fail in my book.
