New Tools for More Successful Editing Adventures

Spacing in Galleries

You now have the power to control how much space lives between your images at the horizontal and vertical level. This allows you to create a variety ways to present a collection of photos. You can even eliminate all of the space to give it a collage effect.

Lock Those Blocks

Have you ever accidentally messed up a block or pattern? While there’s always some comfort in knowing you can “undo” most accidents, there’s a new/better way to prevent them from happening in the first place.

You can now lock blocks from within the editor or the list view. This makes it easier than ever to protect components, sections, or even full layouts.

Within locking you can choose to prevent them from being moved or to prevent them from being removed. You can also look forward to the ability to lock “inner blocks” which would make it easier to lock any number of blocks you have set up within a layout block like the group, row, or stack blocks.

Did You Notice the Table of Contents on This Post?

That’s right, it’s finally here. The table of contents block automatically updates as you edit your content, giving your users a direct path to the content they are most interested in.

    Extra tip for adjusting the spacing value:

    Of course, you can type the value into the box and hit enter. But did you know you can also click and hold inside the box and while holding the click, moving the mouse up and down automatically changes the value?

    A handy little tip when you are not sure how much you would need.

    I discovered the ToC a month or two ago and it has been awesome! Next, we need a way to integrate estimated reading time into articles 🙂

    I don’t use gallery blocks. I just place my photos in-line down a blog post (hey that’s just me lol). But nice to know the spacing feature is there if I ever do decide to try it out. Definitely going to have to try out the lock feature. My favorite feature though is the TOC. I’m guessing it works based off header blocks within your blog posts. Definitely going to have to give that one a try. Thanks for these updates.

    Hi, I am on WordPress.com Business. Do I need to activate Gutenberg for this Table of Content to work?
