Gutenberg is WordPress' attempt to keep up with the growth of popular DIY site builders like Weebly, Squarespace, and Wix. The classic WordPress editor is showing its age. It isn't drag and drop, it gets cluttered by plugin features, and it requires authors to keep clicking "preview" to see what their post will look like. Gutenberg aims to solve all of this. With WordPress 5 Gutenberg replaced the classic editor completely. WordPress users are now composing blog posts using rearrangeable content "blocks" instead of a single giant block of text, interacting more intuitively with plugins, and previewing their posts as they compose them rather than toggling between the editor and preview. Gutenberg has been a polarizing release for WordPress (just check out the comments below). But regardless of whether you think Gutenberg is an instant success or a slow burn it will affect how your business or nonprofit uses its website.

Few websites are built without some kind of templating. Even web developers use low level templating to organize their code and streamline their development process. If you’re building your own website you’re probably using a visual template for your website (often called a theme). You may even be using a what-you-see-is-what-you-get (WYSIWYG) drag and drop web builder (like what is offered by WordPress’ Gutenberg, Wix, or Weebly). But there is an inherent danger when using website templates - forgetting to make them uniquely yours. You don’t want someone visiting your website only to find some content they have seen on a similar looking site elsewhere. If you find this article helpful consider giving it a share ? Once you’ve completed your first draft with your website template don’t forget to tie up these loose ends: Boilerplate Most web templates include some static text meant to get you started, explain the purpose of the template page, or give you instructions on how to use that page template. Don’t forget to replace or edit this text. Your best bet, read it and then delete it and write the content for your own page. You don’t want boilerplate on your site. Even if the homepage template’s text sounds like it's gold you don’t want to run the risk of sounding like someone else, publishing duplicate content, or being noticed for being identical to another site. Write your own content or hire a copywriter to write uniquely great content for your site. Default stock photos You want your website to look great. Hey, we get it. You don’t have the time or equipment to take photos as great as the stock photos included in…
