Block Editing is Network Default – WordPress Websites

Block Editing is Network Default

WordPress blocks are used to add content to your posts and pages. Block Editing gives you greater control over customizing layouts and structuring pages and posts. Using blocks lets you be more creative in your page editing experience. Block editing is compatible with all of our themes.

Convert Content in Classic Editor to Blocks

The Classic Editor will appear as a “classic block” on the page. Click “Convert to blocks” and it will automatically transform into blocks that match the content. Images will turn into image blocks, paragraph text into paragraph blocks, and headers into header blocks etc.

Our team will be happy to help transition your site to the block editor from the classic editor. If you have any questions about the block editor (also referred to as “Gutenberg”) email the Web and Application Development team at
