Block Editor Overview

Create your content in a new way! Utilize the Block Editor to freely create individual sections and put together one beautiful piece of content.

As you create a new Post, you are presented with two different options for editors: Freestyle and Block. Simply put, the Freestyle Editor should be used to create simple, quick announcements or emails. The Block Editor should be used to create longer, multi-section content like newsletters.

The Block Editor separates pieces of content, like text blocks, photos, buttons, polls to make it easy to rearrange sections as needed.

When you create a new Post, select [Block Editor] for your editor then click the [Create] button.
