WordPress uses something called the block editor. This means that content is added to the page by adding different blocks to the page. There are heading blocks, paragraph blocks, image blocks, basically a block for any kind of content. These blocks can be arranged in columns and rows, and can easily be moved up and down on a page. 

Are you ready to create your first page using blocks? This article will walk through the basic steps of creating a page using the block editor. 

1. Creating a new page

From the dashboard, click Pages then Add New:

2. Adding a block to the page

Once you've entered the Page editor, you can give the page a title, and then click the (+) sign to add a block. When you click the (+) sign, you can scroll through the available blocks, or you can type in the search field to find a specific block. Here is a list of blocks available from WordPress. If you don't see the block that you would like, let us know. 

Some of the most common blocks to use are the paragraph block (for basic content and links), the heading block, and the image block.

3. Adding a second block 

After adding the first block, you might want to add a second (and a third...). To add the next block, just hit enter. This will drop your cursor down to a new line, and you will see the (+) sign ready for you to select the type of block that you want (or you can just start typing and the default block will be the paragraph block). 

Another way to bring up the (+) sign for another block is to click in the white space either below or to the left of the current block. This will allow you to stop editing the current block and bring up the option to create a new block. 

 4. Removing and reordering blocks. 

There are several options available that will display at the top of a block. These options may vary slightly depending on which block you are currently editing. To see these options, click on the block and you should see the options come up. The three vertical dots include options such as duplicate block and remove block. Depending on how many blocks you have, the small arrow to the left of vertical dots will allow you to move a particular block up or down on the page. 

If you are working with a more complex block, or a series of blocks, you can use the 3 horizontal lines at the top of the page to open the list of blocks currently being used on the page. You can click on a block within the list to highlight that block and bring up the options available. 

5. Editing a block 

Each block can be edited through in a variety of ways. These editing options display on the right side of the page editor. There, you will see a Page tab and a Block tab. Make sure the Block tab is highlighted, and then click on the block you want to edit. This will bring up the editing options for that block. 

Once you are done editing the page, make sure to click the blue Publish or Update button at the top of the page, and your changes will be saved!
