So, here I am, trying out the new block editor, as promised here: SoCS: new editor . Not sure how to make the link show up with text I choose, but at least it is there.
I’ve tried reading some of the introductory articles, so I think this is a second paragraph blog, not just a continuation of the first block. Okay…
When I do my JC’s Confessions series, I start with a block quote, so I am trying out a block quote block. “Block quote block” is an awkward phrase…
So, when I finished that block, it defaulted back to paragraph block, which is nice because I’m sure I will use that the most.
Sometimes I use bullet points. Let’s see how that works.
- Click on the black plus sign
- Choose the List block
- This is the default option, but I could number instead and I think change the indentation?
The other thing I do sometimes is insert images. Hmmm…what should I choose to try that out?
Okay, it was a bit tricky to get out of my caption of the photo, but I managed to start a new paragraph block. Somehow, though, I lost my sidebar that had the category, tagging, and other post stuff….
Yay! I managed to get it back. It had gotten moved over to having info for just the block I was working on, but now I have gotten it back to Document mode.
While I’m sure this exploration of the basics of the block editor has been fascinating – not – I’m going to try to throw on some categories and tags and get it published.
