Just Starting Out
The word Patience springs to mind. You have just had a fresh install of WordPress and you are eager to get started. You want your website to be out there as soon as possible. That’s perfectly understandable but beware. Please don’t just click on the ‘Add New’ button when selecting a theme. There are a few things you should know before you just dive in.
So have you heard about Gutenberg? Pardon the pun, but it’s the ‘new boy on the block’. WordPress used to provide you with just a plain Text Editor which was great for adding paragraphs, images, links and so forth. After that came the more interesting and stylish block system called Gutenberg. It would serve you well to learn more about Gutenberg here. When you’ve had a look at Gutenberg pop over to YouTube and see how easy it is to use.
You can still use the old Text Editor if you prefer. However, you’ll probably find that you won’t need to, given the added bonuses of using the new block system.
This website uses a very basic theme with absolutely no frills and all the pages and posts are built using Gutenberg blocks.
