Designing a website.
If you are designing a new WordPress site and are looking for site design consideration and strategies check out our guides on Planning your website and Website content creation and gathering.
WordPress has changed
The editor WordPress uses has changed over the last few years. Some older sites use what is now known as the “Classic Editor” which has been replaced with a completely different content builder, called the Block Editor.
If you are on an older site using the classic editor, skip down to our section below on the Classic Editor. If you are working on a site using the new Block Editor, be sure to review the tutorial series below on Using the Block Editor.
The WordPress development community at www.wordpress.org have tutorials to get you started and to extend your skills here: Tutorials | Learn WordPress
