Adding a Button

One of the best things about blocks is that they can be saved and reused individually. This is particularly helpful if you frequently need to add specific content snippets to your articles.

You can add a link for your button, select colors, and choose from three button styles.

Adding Tables

The editor comes with a default Table block. Simply add the block and then select the number of columns and rows you want to insert. You can always add more rows and columns if needed.

You can now add data to table rows.

There are also two basic style options available.

Creating Multi-column Content

The block editor allows you to add Columns block, which basically adds two columns of paragraph blocks. You can add up to 6 columns in a row and even use other blocks inside each column.

Adding Cover Images

A cover image is a wider image often used as a cover for a new section in a page or the beginning of a story.

To add a cover image, simply add a cover block and then upload the image you want to use. You can choose an overlay color for the cover or make it a fixed background image to create parallax effect when users scroll down the page.

Saving and Reusing Blocks

Simply click on the menu button located at the right corner of each block’s toolbar. From the menu, select ‘Add to reusable blocks’ option, enter a name for your block and click the Save button.

The editor comes with a button block that allows you to quickly add a button to any post or page.

You will find your saved block under the ‘Reusable’ tab. You can also find it by typing its name in the search bar.

You can manage your reusable blocks by clicking on the ‘Manage all reusable blocks’ link under the +Plus >> Reusable menu. Here you can edit, delete and export block for use on another WordPress site.
