This is a mini-lesson in the Block Editor series. I don’t want to have a long post on a Tuesday. For those of you that miss the Classic editor, (but don’t want to fiddle with the Admin Panel hacks to keep it for a little while longer) there is an option. As the title suggests, it’s the Classic Block.
Does that look familiar?
It should, it is the Classic editor and I have just started a new paragraph without starting a new block.
I can add a photo and have the text wrap around it like it does in the Classic editor and I can use all the old favorite menu options including my beloved Indent.
The only thing that’s a little different, is that you need to expand some options. For example, to add the photo, we have to click on the media icon (camera and musical notes) in the tool bar.
That’s it for today. You know how the Classic editor works, and most everything you used to be able to do there, you can do in a Classic Block.
You can mix and match Classic blocks with other blocks. I still use Classic Blocks for my photo galleries, because I can’t get the new gallery options to work the way I like (show captions when I hover and show them in the slide show as well).
Other than the first paragraph, this entire post, including the gallery below was written in the Block Editor, in a single Classic Block. Again, if you want to see the images (screen shots) in order, click in the gallery and invoke the slide show.
