Say Hello to the New Editor

WordPress calls their new editor Gutenberg. The entire editing experience has been rebuilt for media rich pages and posts. Experience the flexibility that blocks bring.

What this means is once the site is built, you will have everything in your hands to edit and change things as you see fit including the flexibility to use media and content, side by side, to drive your vision.
