Snow Monkey Editor Plugin Adds Custom Styles to WordPress Core Blocks – WP Tavern

In the early days after the block editor landed in WordPress, block collection plugins exploded on the scene and were quick to rack up hundreds of thousands of users. Plugins like CoBlocks, Kadence Blocks, and Ultimate Addons for Gutenberg offer dozens of blocks in one package, focusing mostly on blocks not offered in core. WordPress.org’s Block Directory gave some incentive for creating single-block plugins, allowing users to search for and install them inside the block editor.

As block themes generally include less custom CSS than traditional themes, some plugin developers are…

Text Selection Across Multiple Blocks Is Coming to WordPress – WP Tavern

Yesterday, Ella van Durpe merged a long-awaited feature into the Gutenberg plugin that allows users to select and modify text across multiple Rich Text blocks. It should land in version 13.0 of the plugin and WordPress 6.0 in May.

Users can currently select text across multiple blocks, but the editor automatically adjusts that selection to all of the blocks themselves, essentially creating a group. The change will allow users to highlight the specific text. This ability should work with any Rich Text block, such as Paragraph, Heading, List, and Quote.

Selecting text across two…

The WordPress pattern directory finally opened its gates to the entire community today. Anyone with a WordPress.org account can log in, go to the pattern creator, and start designing.

For some of us, this has felt like an unbearably long wait. In reality, it took the development team less than a year since the directory launch to put this together. It was no small feat to make it work and put in all the guardrails for such a system in that amount of time.

Some community members have already got a head start. Ana Segota of Anariel Design announced via Twitter that three of her…

Wix vs WordPress.com: which is better for small businesses?

Best for website features: Wix

Wix wins this one at a canter – with an exemplary 4.9 out of 5 rating compared to WordPress.com’s very substandard 2.1.

One key difference is SEO support, a crucial area for small businesses. WordPress.com does offer you the features you need, but what it doesn’t do is give you SEO best practice prompts when you’re actually building your website. In other words, you need to know what you’re doing, and WordPress.com (unlike Wix) makes very little effort to teach you.

Similarly, WordPress.com’s plugin store offers less “no code” options than Wix…
