Two months ago, I went over the basics of the new WordPress update, aka Gutenberg software. Last month, I covered formatting options. Today, let’s talk about some features and plugins you might want to use.
Copying & Pasting into WordPress
I always write my posts in the WordPress editor screen, but many bloggers prefer to pen their posts in word processing software, then copy and paste into WordPress. How can you make that happen?
Straight copy and paste. Go grab the whole text from its source (on a PC, you can use Ctrl+A and then Ctrl+C to copy it), then come over to the WordPress editor screen and paste it in (Ctrl+V). Gutenberg will convert it to paragraph blocks, and you can then change any specific block to another format choice if you want, such as Heading.
Using HTML. Some writers save their post as HTML and then paste it into WordPress. If that was your go-to method, you’ll notice that you no longer have a visible place where HTML editor is shown—but it’s still here!
