  • Adding and Editing Content

Adding content to your site is an easy process no matter whether you’re creating a Post or a Page. The procedure for both is almost identical. Apart from how they display on your site, which was described earlier.

WordPress Editors

There are two types of editors used on your website; the WordPress Block Editor and the advanced visual editor Elementor . The editor used depends whether the Page or Post requires a special layout or content. Generally the WordPress Block Editor will be used for Posts and the advanced visual editor Elementor will be used for Pages.

WordPress Block Editor

The Block Editor treats all your content as individual blocks. Each block can be inserted, rearranged and styled individually. It provides individual blocks for all your common content such as paragraphs, headings, ordered and unordered Lists (i.e. bullet points), quote, images, galleries and more. On top of that, the Block Editor also provides additional blocks for easily adding content such as buttons, tables and columns.

Rearranging your content is even easier than before. The Block Editor allows you to drag-and-drop or use the block mover icons, to rearrange the order of individual blocks. Each block can also be styled individually using the toolbar at the top of block. The types of styles that you can add to a block are dependent on the individual block. A Paragraph Block for example, allows you to change the text size, text colour and background colour, whereas a Heading Block will only allow you to change the level (H2, H3 etc.) and the text alignment.

Elementor – Advanced Visual Editor

Elementor is a page builder plugin that replaces the basic WordPress Block editor with a live frontend editor, so you can create complex layouts visually, and design your website live, without having to switch between the editor and the preview mode. The user interface is extremely friendly, so it only takes a few minutes to get the hang of it.

Your website uses a professional version of the plugin which includes an extensive library of widgets that you can simply drag and drop onto your page to display different content.
