WordPress Gutenberg 13.8 gives you more editing flexibility

WordPress Gutenberg 13.8 is here, unpacking further incremental improvements to the Gutenberg block editor.

Some of the improvements are relatively trivial additions, such as adding a WhatsApp icon to the social icons block.

But others are more important because they give template designers the ability to provide more design options for their users.

Chief among them is a new feature that makes it easier to see parts of the template and insert them from the insert block.

This option is designed for template designers, who can now make it easier for users to choose variations.

According to WordPress:

“Gutenberg 13.8 introduces improvements for those using variations and patterns to provide flexibility for their users.

Specific template part variations are now available in a block insert, making it easy to add the “Header,” “Footer,” or “Newsletter Subscription” part of the template to your site.”
