Block Editor Class Descriptions
Block Editor for Absolute Beginners: this class is designed for the blogger who is afraid to open the new editor. We will walk through it together. And you’ll end up with your first practice post in the block editor. We will only use the blocks that come built into WP. And we will cover how to switch back and forth so you can continue to use the Classic Editor until you feel comfortable to remove it.
Who’s it for? Anyone!
Basic Blocks for Beginners: this class will start where Absolute Beginners left off. We will continue to go through all the basic blocks in this class: headings, lists, quotes, pull quote, table, verse and embeds. We will start to go into using Reusable Blocks and Plugins to find and use more blocks.
Who’s it for? This is a good introduction to Advanced Blocks class. Before joining this class, you should be comfortable using paragraph and image blocks.
Advanced Blocks: In this class, we will go through more advanced blocks from the Kadence Block plugin (free version) and Yoast’s SEO plugin (free version). You will learn how to format pages correctly, with the least amount of work while keeping within your brand. You will learn what schema is, and how to use schema blocks (How To and FAQ blocks) correctly.
Who’s it for? I recommend this class for intermediate block editor users. If you’re comfortable using and navigating among the blocks in the Block Editor, you’ll enjoy this class.
Blog Layout for SEO: Blogs have a wide array of SEO guidelines. We will go through the most common ones, covering headers, breadcrumbs, author blocks, meta and info tags, galleries, recipes and video embeds. We will touch briefly on readability, accessibility and speed. We will use the Recipe block from WP Recipe Maker (free version), Yoast’s SEO for WP plugin (free version) and Kadence Blocks (free version).
