Within WordPress Version 5.0 (released Dec 6, 2018) the classic content editor was replaced with a block editor, known as Gutenberg.

This blog was originally written in Dec 2018, then rewritten/updated in July 2020, and now this update in Apr 2021, and will probably be rewritten again. Gutenberg was and is a major change to how content is created / updated within the WordPress back-end editor. 

Webprem has not yet fully embraced Gutenberg.  Webprem, like many other website developers, are waiting for a few items within Gutenburg to shake out.  We utilize the previous version of the WordPress backend editor to create and update content using what is referred to as the “Classic Editor”.  Webprem utilizes a process that already has the “Classic Editor” enabled.  Otherwise there is a WordPress plugin that can be used at https://wordpress.org/plugins/classic-editor/
