WordPress updated it’s code on December 2018 and added it’s own visual composer. As with anything that is new and drastically different than what we are accustomed to, my first reaction was to never use it…boycott…slam them non-stop on social media…install the classic editor plugin and just it forever. But, change is progress, no matter if you like it or not.
First thing this morning, Monday, I decided to dive in and learn. Last Friday was their push to update, so this is my first chance. I had some posts for clients to add and can say that copy/paste with Gutenberg still has issues, but thanks to the Code Editor, I could get it to work without spending 20 minutes on each post just updating paste errors. And, if you are asking, yes it was pure text pasted, not anything special.
Embedding Widgets into a Post
Below is a list of embedded posts, the most recent. They do make it easy to embed. So, I’m going to use this to test to see if the new posts I make regarding Gutenberg will show up or not.
- Gutenberg Overview – Updated
- Shopping Cart vs Product Catalog
- How to Edit Products in WooCommerce
- How to Add Products in WooCommerce
- How to Use Image Widget to Control Images on Your Home Page
Okay, it’s added, but the option to filter by category was not available. I also noticed that once you add, you can’t change the type of addition. You have to delete the block and add a new one.
