I am writing this post with Gutenberg, the new WordPress’ Medium-like editor. Now a plug-in, the plan is a full integration with WordPress 5. Well, I’m probably not doing justice to the new editor saying that it’s just like Medium. It’s much more, thanks to the concept of the blocks – you can learn more about the blocks, here.
Gutenberg has three planned stages. The first, aimed for inclusion in WordPress 5, focuses on the post editing experience and the implementation of blocks. This initial phase focuses on a content-first approach. The use of blocks allows you to focus on how your content will look without the distraction of other configuration options. This ultimately will help all users present their content in a way that is engaging, direct, and visual.
These foundational elements will pave the way for stages two and three, planned for the next year, to go beyond the post into page templates and ultimately, full site customization.
For now, I’m simply enjoying the new experience (yet, I cannot understand how I should manage things like content distribution – eg. Twitter and LinkedIn – directly from Gutenberg…)
This site, and his twin ContentXBorders, now run WordPress 4.9 Tipton.
After years of being a lonely and grumpy blogger I decided to invite guest bloggers to write on ContentMarketingAcrossBorders. The first three authors that have kindly created custom content – or gave permissions to share existing content – for CMAB are Molly Clarke, Maël Roth and Pam Didner.
CMAB is now open to all Global Content Marketing experts willing to share strategy and best practices with a global audience via this dedicated channel. Thank you!
Making advantage of the calm of these post-CMWorld days and building a new content hub focused on Global Content Marketing and separating – whenever it will be possible – personal stuff, still going to be resident here, and professional stuff, going to be moved to the new hub.
We all know how blur is the line between personal and pro content today; the rough plan is to separate all marketing-related content from personal bullshit. Working on it.
WP 4.7 has been released. Users will receive new and refined features; developers will be able to take advantage of 173 enhancements and feature requests added. WP 4.7 has been installed on this blog, together with the brand new theme, Twenty Seventeen. But let’s go step by step.
- WordPress 4.7 “Vaughan” has been released today. Actually, yesterday night. The news page is here. Field Guide can be accessed here. Codex is here.
- the new theme, Twenty Seventeen has been released together with the new version. It has been installed on this blog few minutes ago. Check around. Theme notes are here. The public live version is here.
And so the first phase of the contest is now closed. I got 187 logo designs from 25 designers in 5 days! Awesome… Now, the final phase. Still 30 designs from 5 excellent designers are in. Few more days and then the contest will be closed (and the blog will gain a new shining logo).
Last hours before the my blog logo contest ends. Getting +100 logo designs and +20 designers working on the project. This is just fantastic and love the concept behind 99design.
