Do you remember playing with blocks as a kid? Remember the feeling of freedom you had to build whatever you wanted? You could build a tower of blocks, and pretend they were a castle, or a treehouse, or anything you wanted them to be. The options were only limited by your creativity. It wasn’t about what the blocks looked like, but what they represented… possibility. Is it possible that Gutenberg, the new block-based editor for WordPress, will become the same for the WordPress community — a new medium for creative expression? Gutenberg will replace the current editor as we know it with a series of content blocks intended to unify how content is styled, and establish long-term consistency for users and developers currently using a wide range of other methods for styling. These blocks are a unified way to style content that currently requires shortcodes, embeds, widgets, post formats, custom post types, theme options, meta-boxes, and other formatting elements. — Enriched with branding, web accessibility, and other unique content tools, the new block editor will make it possible for content managers of all skill levels to create more dynamic content.
