4.1 Conclusion

Hello, and welcome back to this Tuts+ course on WordPress Gutenberg. In this part of the course, I'm gonna go through what you've learned on the course, and recap on what we've covered. So we've focused in this course on using blocks within Gutenberg. And I created two posts. Now, you can see them here in the posts screen in my WordPress admin. And as you can see, each of them is tied with Gutenberg here, so we know that they have been edited using Gutenberg. So these are the two that I created, and this is another one that was already existing, but I converted to Gutenberg earlier on. So let's open this one that we created during the course. So I showed you how to create a number of different types of block in this post. We started off with paragraphs. We added a sub-heading, and a list, and then a quote. So we added various types of text blocks. We, then, moved on to looking at image blocks. So we added an image, this nice looking lion here. And then we added a gallery. And we added a second gallery by duplicating the block for the first one, and changing the images. I, then, showed you how to use some of the more advanced settings and editing options that you have for your blocks in Gutenberg. So we looked at the block settings over here. So here, for example, we've got those for a gallery, and we look to the different things that you can change. And I gave you some warnings about when it is a good idea, and not such a good idea to change within your blocks. And we also looked at how you can edit the HTML, and the fact that that makes it much more easy to pinpoint some specific text that you want to edit the HTML file. We, then, looked at shared and duplicate blocks in Gutenberg. So I created a duplicate paragraph here. Which is a duplicate of that first one. And then, I created a shared block which is a call to action. And I added that to this post up here at the top. And also, down at the bottom. Without having to create two blocks, I just inserted the shared block that was already set up. And then, finally, I added that to a second post. And I showed you how by editing those shared blocks, you'll change what they say, or what they contain throughout the entire site. Now you've watched this course, you'll have a better understanding of how you can use the Gutenberg editor. And how you can use blocks to create content, and added it in ways that you might not have been able to previously. I hope you find this course useful. Thanks for watching.
