In the world of technology and the online business, one principle is the most important – you must be up-to-date; you, or the people you hire to run your website. If you don’t follow trends, you will get out of the game quickly. There is no mercy in the online world. Today a short story about Gutenberg – what is it, and why you should follow the changes and updates that appear frequently.
Gutenberg was also a famous inventor and it is good to know it; we own him a lot.
Gutenberg is an editor interface that you find in WordPress. That name can’t be an accident. It should remind you of something, or rather someone. Johannes Gutenberg was a German inventor who introduced printing to Europe with the printing press. It is thanks to its mechanical movable type printing that it has become possible to automatize book production. It was a breakthrough for writing and the spread of reading and learning to the masses. The written word became widely available, and this was the beginning of great revolutions. No wonder WordPress gave that name to its revolutionary content creator. So, Gutenberg – what is it exactly?
Gutenberg – what is it?
Gutenberg is not just a simple editor. It is an advanced tool that enable you to add rich content. Its main feature are blocks. One click and you have a variety of options to build engaging content. It helps you to distinguish different aspects of your post, and, what is one of the most convenient option, you can change the order of your blocks as much as you want, even if the text is almost ready. On the left you see these little arrows that move a block up or down. It couldn’t be simpler, trust us. You can insert, rearrange, and style content even without technical knowledge. No need to know custom code or magic development spells. Without being an expert developer, every beginner can add a certain block and focus on content. Imagination is the limit.
