What Is Gutenberg
Gutenberg is a block-based content editor in WordPress that was introduced in version 5.0. It is named after Johannes Gutenberg, the inventor of the printing press.
Unlike the classic editor, which relied on a single content area for adding and formatting text, Gutenberg introduces a block-based system where each element of the content, such as paragraphs, images, videos, and other media, is a block. This allows users to create more complex layouts and customize each block separately.
Gutenberg also includes a wide range of pre-designed blocks, such as buttons, columns, quotes, and more, that can be easily inserted into the content area. These blocks can be further customized with different settings, such as font sizes, background colors, and alignment.
Gutenberg has received mixed reviews since its release, with some users finding it easier to use and more flexible than the classic editor, while others find it more complicated and overwhelming. Nevertheless, it has become the default editor in WordPress and is continually being updated and improved.
