WordPress Gutenberg 16.9 Update Makes Creation Easier

The site editing workflow is enhanced with the recently released WordPress Gutenberg site editor, which is now more user-friendly and intuitive.

With the release of their most recent iteration of the Gutenberg website builder, WordPress has included a number of tools that facilitate the creation of websites with greater layout customization.

The gradual enhancements made to Gutenberg in version 16.9 culminate in a more user-friendly site editor.

WordPress 16.9 with Gutenberg

The goal of Gutenberg, the next generation WordPress website editor, is to make website creation simple enough for anyone to do without the need for coding expertise.

It creates webpages by adding blocks that symbolize the many components of a webpage using the visual metaphor of blocks.

Apart from providing discrete components for constructing a webpage, Gutenberg furthermore offers patterns – comprehensive webpage layouts composed entirely of blocks.

Patterns expedite site creation by giving users a starting point that just requires tweaking.

Phase two of Gutenberg’s three-phase development plan is now underway, with the goal of refining the process of creating sites and complete site editing.

The site creation and editing procedures listed below have been enhanced in version 16.9:

Blocks can be renamed almost entirely.
It is now easier to replicate and rename patterns.
The user interface allows you to change the names or remove pattern categories.
It is now simpler to arrange audio and video files thanks to the addition of new categories.
WordPress states that it enables “better organization of curated patterns.”
To make selecting picture dimensions (height, width, and aspect ratio) more intuitive, the dimensions tool’s menu selections have been reorganized.
The size of a block is relative to the browser window thanks to the new CSS viewport-relative units feature.
along with a slew of other tools that enhance the site editing experience

Rename Nearly Every Block
The ability to rename blocks with words that make sense in the context facilitates the process of constructing websites.

Because of this, creating sites is streamlined and blocks can have meaningful names.

For theme creators who can also give blocks meaningful names, this is really helpful.

Four blocks are the only ones that cannot have their names changed; they are either placeholders or site-wide design elements:

  • core/block

Renaming and duplicating patterns

A pattern (a preset webpage layout) could already be renamed.

However, to rename the pattern, the user would have to click outside of the pattern editing panel and then onto another screen.

This streamlines the design process by making it simpler to rename a pattern right within the pattern editing panel.

An analogous workflow enhancement is the pattern duplication.

Viewport-Relative Unit Support

This gives designers additional tools to create better layouts that display well in viewports of varying sizes (the portion of a webpage that is viewable in the browser).

WordPress highlights the advantages of this modification:

“Because if they are not defined in our lists of available CSS units, what happens is that we should not explicitly forbid the use of CSS units.”

WordPress 16.9 Simplifies Editing

With the many enhancements included in this edition, developers and theme designers now have more options and may change websites more easily.

With every version, Gutenberg becomes more and more superior.
