Caxton Gutenberg Plugin

comments 4
WordPress

For the first time since I started using Gutenberg I am really impressed. And strangely, perhaps, I am impressed by creating a page that looks more like a newspaper. I can’t create anything like it here on WP.com because it needs the Caxton plugin (get it from the WordPress.org repository) to make it work. That is only for self-hosted sites or the Business plan on WP.com. The plugin is made by the people at PootlePress […]

By way of background – at the moment, […]

If you’re writing a post using Gutenberg and you want an image in a post to be a clickable link to a URL, here’s how to do it.

I am going to link this image of a Gerbera flower (I think that is what it […]
