Previously, the Classic Editor was the default editor for WordPress. It lacked the ability to format individual content elements, and it required additional plugins and some coding knowledge to achieve the desired outcomes. However, this was not beginner friendly to many individuals who wanted to create a site without much technical knowledge.
In an attempt to enhance the experience, the Gutenberg editor was developed and introduced as a DIY, beginner friendly editor. Through the use of drag and drop content blocks, Gutenberg allowed for the creation of rich content with a simpler interface and easier execution of added elements.
Gutenberg does not require installation for WordPress sites 5.0 and later as it became the default editor for increased user experience. Further information can be found on the plugin page for Gutenberg by Gutenberg Team.
In this tutorial, you will learn how to create pages using the Gutenberg editor.
