But, this time, it was directed at me on Twitter. What did I do to deserve this? I tweeted this…
Parallax scrolling images are all-the-rage these days and Gutenberg has made it really easy to add this style of image to your posts.
On top of this, there are a number of settings that you can use to enhance the image further, including transparency and cover overlays.
I’ll explain parallax images a little more and give a quick tutorial on how to do it in Gutenberg.
WPLift has posted an excellent list of 20+ tips for Gutenberg. Here’s 5 more.
1. View your word counts
For the serious writer, word counts can be essential. In the classic editor, a simple word count was shown at the bottom of the editor window. Although no longer constantly on display, the Gutenberg solution gives you not just word counts but also information on headings, paragraphs and blocks too.
Getting an image to float to the left or right of some text is not as obvious in Gutenberg as it was in the classic editor. Using blocks it’s no longer obvious how to combine and text on a single horizontal. But, the answer, once you know it is just as easy.
Update: I’ve now reverted back to my previous theme. Twenty Nineteen had too many issues present for me to continue using it (it was the first, very draft release, after all). Everything I saw has been reported though and I’m looking forward to using it a later time.
Just 3 hours ago (at the time of writing), the new theme for WordPress 5.0 was announced – Twenty Nineteen. And I’m running the very early version on this site.
Designed specifically for Gutenberg, it looks great but, yeah, some if it has broken the site (you don’t need to tell me).
