Here is this week’s update on important Wordpress news and recommended articles for Outcome Labs Wordpress Care Plan customers and our newsletter subscribers.
It has been just over two years since the Wordpress Block Editor was released as a core platform feature. Are you using a commercial page builder or have you migrated to the Wordpress Block Editor?
The Wordpress Block Editor is designed to operate in "full screen" mode so you can focus on content creation. Do you prefer this or do you prefer to have the editing controls visible?
The core team has laid out the plan for Wordpress 5.7, the next release of the Wordpress platform. It is targeted for release in March 2021. Matt Mullenweg will be the release lead.
Wordpress 5.6 was released today. This is a major release of the Wordpress core platform. We are doing a verification of the production release on our company sites today. Overall, a solid update to the platform, but not one that delivers much from a functionality perspective to non-developers.
We have recommended adding the Gutenburg Changelog to your listening list before. This week's show covers the upcoming Gutenberg Times Live Q & A, Full Site Editing, Gutenberg 9.4, and the Customizer. Worth a listen.
Because developing blocks requires using a different tools, there have been several initiatives introduced to simplify this. Justin Tadlock just did a review of one of the latest offerings, Genesis Custom Blocks.
One of the areas we are very focused on here at Outcome Labs is maintaining a reliable, repeatable workflow. One area we are focused on is what we will use to provide page-level layouts with the Wordpress Block Editor.
