WordPress Portsmouth Online Meetup – 21st October 2020 – Gutenberg – the block editor

Join the WordPress Portsmouth Online Meetup on 21st October 2020 to learn about Gutenberg – the block editor – from Belinda Mustoe.

A content creator’s guide to the block editor.

The new Gutenberg editor gives content creators more freedom to create layouts without programming knowledge. However there is still a steep learning curve on how to use the block editor efficiently.

Belinda will be providing an overview of the block editor in WordPress 5.5 as well as answering any questions on how to use the block editor with your site.
