Say Hello 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 will bring, whether you are building your first site, or write code for a living.
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.
