SiteContent And Block Editor - Do They Work?
This post has come about due to some comments made on the following post:
I think for some members it was a light bulb moment, as the prior understanding appeared to be that Wealthy Affiliate's SiteContent feature would not work with the WordPress Block Editor a.k.a. Gutenberg.
The answer my friends is YES, it does work, and quite well at that :-)
I have put some training together specifically for publishing from SiteContent to the WordPress Block Editor with the Classic Editor plugin completely disabled, to show how SiteContent works with the native WordPress editor.
You can find the training here:
The training above will guide you through how this works, along with showing you the Classic Block that exists within the Block Editor. All without requiring a plugin to provide the same features.
We are only about three days away from the next WordPress update, which adds even more focus to the Block Editor.
You can read more about what is coming in the post below:
If you have any issues while testing the Block Editor and you want to go back to the Classic Editor plugin, that is ok and can be achieved by following the training below:
And if you would prefer to keep the Classic Editor plugin activated while you convert your posts to the Block Editor, you might find this training useful:
I know converting your pages or posts from the Classic Editor to the Block Editor sounds daunting, but it honestly isn't. You could disable your Classic Editor plugin today and your website would still function exactly the same. This is because the Block Editor has a builtin Classic Block.
The first training that I have linked to above will show you how to publish from SiteContent to WordPress, using the builtin Classic Block. It also talks about how you can either leave the Classic Block as it is, or you can use it in a hybrid mode, or you can convert it to full blocks.
The options are limitless and easy to understand.
You do not have to convert your whole website over in one day, night or weekend. In fact, you don't actually have to convert your previous posts ever, if you don't want to.
Food for thought :-)
