After the event…
Well the talk is over and several attendees asked about the links I showed in my presentation. The WP Block Editor is now an established part of the WordPress package. It is improving all the time and there is still plenty of online discussion as to the merits of the Block Editor in comparison to the Classic Editor and the Page Builder offerings such as Elementor, Divi and Beaver Builder.
Discussions about how — and why! — to use the Block Editor can be found here…
Make sure you check out the dates of some these discussion groups. Some have not aged well!
In addition, I identified some practice tools that allow you to get used to the Block Editor without anyone looking over your shoulder. MAMP, WAMP and XAMP are well known in this area but I find that Local is easier to implement and Frontenberg is a useful tool for trying things out too.
