WORDPRESS is Pressing Evolution Again

In News on November 14, 2018 at 8:23 pm

Have you felt the new Editor that’s being introduced through the admin’s backdoor? I’m framing it as coming through the backdoor because at present using the new editor is an option.  But we know that the option period is for a limited time only and that eventually, the new editor will be all that is available. 

Me? I have opted to give the new editor a go early because I’ve been on WordPress for almost a decade and am no longer afraid of confronting the evolution that they serve up. It’s usually good. 

So what did I find?

Well, I found that I will now be building my article content in blocks. Which isn’t really so different from typing text onto a blank document, but they are calling the beginning of a new paragraph “blocks” and I’m sure that’s a reference to HTML coding. We code in blocks. I also noticed that the HTML toggle switch is missing at the very top of the new document. However, if you highlight the block, the edit toolbar will appear at the top. Not a bad deal, but definitely something to get used to. 

In order to continue to press out my Griot point of view
It’s best that I learn how to maneuver the new hue.

It appears that WordPress’ evolution is a clever hat
But poses some issues in my Griot format.

In order to write in Shakespeare verse, poetics and Griot slots,
I may encounter a continuance issue at writing in blocks.

Each new 2-line stanza seems to create a brand-new paragraph.
But it’s just 2-lines in a verse; nothing to start a new block at. [?]

In order to compose this Griot piece in format-fashion 
I had to enlist a Word document and pre-viz my passion.

I wrote out my piece, copied and pasted it into one block.
Then once I pressed enter, it made a new block forever 2-line slot.

The extra step of previsualizing rocks and saved me from being confused by the editing evolution,
I’m Qui
And WordPress’ Press of Evolution bodes well for me; t’is my early conclusion.

What sayest ye, o’ WordPress Kin?
Evolution is real and they’re at it again.
