More About the Post Editor

The Post Editor in WordPress is the editor you use to create, update, and publish posts. In modern versions of WordPress, that editor is called the Block Editor or Gutenberg. Older versions of the editor are referred to as the Classic Editor.

Using the Post Editor, you get access to formatting tools, pre-built elements called blocks, and customization options for each component. Text elements are at the core of the Post Editor. Still, you can also use the editor to configure layouts, change post styles, add metadata, and more.

The Post Editor offers post management options. You can save posts as drafts, schedule them for publication, or publish them right away. The editor also provides information on revisions and which user has made changes to the post.
