Many of our customers come to us after their website is ready to go and say “I’m scared of the Gutenberg editor” or “I don’t know how to use it, help”. Our team of WordPress developers love to help them out by introducing them to the Gutenberg editor. They provide them instruction videos with a tutorial of how to best use Gutenberg editor and take full advantage of it.
How do we create Gutenberg blocks for your website?
First, we take a look at your entire design on your Sketch file. We compare the different sections on your design and find blocks that are similar to each other. So if you have a similar section on your home page, about us and a service page we can make one Gutenberg block for it. However, this does not mean the block will not be editable. It will be.
For example, we can create a block where the layout is the same, but you can change the copy, the image, or the background color for this section. We create for our customers as many blocks as you have in your web design.
If you need, let’s say, 20 unique Gutenberg blocks, we will develop 20 blocks. On top of these blocks, you will also have elements such as: post types, archive posts, pages etc. Furthermore, the way you use these elements does not change even with the Gutenberg blocks. In fact, it will make editing easier.
You can edit each Gutenberg block, moreover, you can drag and drop these sections in any order that works best for you. Also, you can remove sections that you do not need on a certain page. It’s really simple, and we promise once you get use to it, you will love 💜 it.
Can you reuse Gutenberg blocks?
Yes, you can absolutely reuse Gutenberg blocks. We save for you certain block types that you can use over and over again. You can edit them slightly or copy and paste the same exact block for various pages on your WordPress website.
Why is Gutenberg editor helpful for users?
So let’s say you have your website for a while and want to create a new subpage that wasn’t planned in your original web design. No worries. You can easily use your pre-existing Gutenberg blocks to create a brand-new page with just a few clicks. For most users, these Gutenberg blocks are enough to create new WordPress pages. They do not have to come back to the designer and then the developer to create more.
