From now, blogging on WordPress has become even easier. Just use for that qodeblock and qodetheme. This theme, created by the professional team of developers WordPress, will help you to improve the look of posts and create unique content  for your your blog.

The main feature of the Gutenberg editor is the presentation of all content as blocks and the  definition of the record layout directly in the editor. Using the editor Gutenberg, you no longer need knowledge of HTML or CSS for placing two blocks of content next to each other, creating complex layouts will become more accessible to most users. If you have any questions about Gutenberg editor, please, check documentation

What are blocks?

Basically, blocks are any content that you insert into the post or post of your blog. The functionality of the old editor was more like Microsoft Word – it was possible to work only with text. To add a video, button or photo gallery to an article, you had to search for a suitable plugin or write HTML yourself.

The Gutenberg editor has a modular structure. Now every paragraph, heading or illustration is a separate block. The new editor has several default blocks, such as paragraphs, images, gallery, and more. With qodeblock, you get additional blocks that can help you create even more dynamic posts and pages. The qodelock plugin includes the following blocks:

  • Testimonial
  • Inline Notices
  • Author Profile
  • Drop Cap
  • Spacer
  • Sharing Icons
  • Button
  • Accordion
  • Call To Action
  • Post & Page Grid
  • Container
  • Pricing
  • Email Newsletter
  • Advanced Columns

A detailed rundown of each editor block can be found below.
