wordpress 6 2 site editor and gutenberg enhancements

Here is a quick look at some of the very cool new features and enhancements coming to Gutenberg and the Site Editor in WordPress 6.2. I’m impressed.

Features demoed in the video include:

  • The new navigation in the Site Editor and template management layout.
  • Block settings are now split between Settings and Styles tabs.
  • The enhancements to the Navigation block. It is now usable.
  • The ability to add CSS for each block.
  • The ability to add CSS sitewide, replacing the CSS panel in the Customizer.
  • The ability to save styles for a block globally so they apply to all instances of that block.
  • The new Style Book that lets you see and change the styles of all active blocks.
  • The new integration with the OpenVerse image repository. WordPress recently took this over from the Creative Commons project. This is very cool. It allows you to browse millions of images and insert the ones you pick directly inside the Gutenberg editor.
