We’ve finished day 10 of the 14 days of Covid quarantine (mandated by Canada when we came home from Arizona.) While it is good to be back on the acreage in time to watch the first green things pop out of the ground, it is a bit challenging to not even be able to go pick up the mail!
The Car Guy decided the best way to get groceries was to order on line and have home delivery. This has worked very well. A ‘personal shopper’ texts us as they shop. They let us know if anything isn’t available. The only downside is that The Car Guy has managed to order a few things in a far greater size than we would normally buy… this jar of peanut butter will last us for a very long time!
The big 1 Kg size.
Do you notice anything unusual about the position of the photos? They are side by side – and the text is beside the photos, rather than below it. This is just one of the features of the WordPress.com block editor. I had never used it before, but thought it might be prudent to at least know what it can do before the day comes that the WordPress Classic Editor disappears.
Here are some other things I’ve learned to do. I can add a separator (the line below) and make it narrow or wide – in any colour I like.
I can add an image and give it a rounded style. This is in a two column block again.
I can add a gallery of photos. I can choose the size of the images and how many columns I want them to be in.
This is a Drop Cap. I will have to resist the temptation to overuse this feature. I already use too many exclamation marks! I also like dashes – though I’m never sure when I should use an ‘en’ dash or an ’em’ dash.
Now I’ve got three columns. The middle one is the list block. The last column is the quote block.
- I can choose alignment
- I can make the type bold
- I can add some color
this is a quote – I don’t want the red line, but I don’t know how to get rid of it.
Slow going. It took me most of the evening to write this post!
What say you if you are a WordPress Blogger? Do you use the Classic WordPress Editor or the new Block Editor? What feature do you think is the coolest?
