WordPress 5.0 - New Update of WordPressby Richa Verma Content Writer
WordPress new update is finally here that have brought some bold changes than previous updates with the introduction of whole new features that has created a buzz around the internet. WordPress.org has released its new update WordPress 5.0 Bebo in December 2018 to all its user. Let us take a look at it. Is this new update for WordPress developer is a boon or bane?
WordPress 5.0 comes with Block Based Editor, Gutenberg that is by far the biggest change introduced by WordPress. Previously, Gutenberg used to be Page Builder plugin which was developed by Matt Gutenberg. It is a block-based editor which allows users to create exquisite layouts using content blocks. It is simple to use even when you are using WordPress for the very first time. If you are a developer or a non-tech person, doesn't matter it offers easy to work with theme and plugins.
How the new update is different from before?
Earlier while using WordPress you have to download Page Builder plugin to let it use add-ons, blocks and layout to move across the website. In old WordPress, you have to use different types of approaches to adding images, videos, photo gallery and other elements.
With Gutenberg, which comes with several pre-built blocks to add, you can simply move the block around the editor and create different layouts without using codes. With these blocks, you can easily add images, videos, media, text, audio, etc. It has easy to use drag and drop option which let you move and place the content wherever you want.
Block Based editor has made the site building easy and has also made theme creation accessible. Someone who doesn't have knowledge of coding can't customise a WordPress theme but with help of blocks creation of custom theme is now easier. Matt Gutenberg, Head of this new update has made sure that WordPress is now accessible to every non-tech person who wants to build a simple online landing page for their business.
Can you still use WordPress previous editor?
The good answer for a WordPress Developer to that is yes, you can. If you are not comfortable with using the new editor then you can simply disable Gutenberg and install WordPress classic Editor plugin and activate it, the plugin will disable the new blocks based editor, and you'd be able to use WordPress's old classic editor. For any Web Designing Company in Faridabad Page Builder is an important tool to create a WordPress website.
