Wordpress 5.9 launches with Full Site Editing

WordPress has officially unveiled WordPress 5.9. The highlight is their new Gutenburg block-based editor with full site editing capabilities. We may finally be seeing the future of wordpress, in the present. This new WordPress helps novice website owners work in a “no-code” capable environment and also shows the world that Gutenburg is now ready to be used in a live publishing environment.

Code named Josephine, WordPress 5.9 comes with the following enhancements:

  • Full site editing, making it much easier to edit, without any coding.
  • New ways to configure, add and edit blocks.
  • New default WordPress theme (called “Twenty Twenty-Two”)
  • The opportunity to save theme changes or global changes.
  • Ten new blocks for site editing under Themes (post comments, next post, previous post)

In addition, we have seen impressive site load times, right out of the box.

It looks like WordPress continues to head into the direction of targeting “no code” users, which continues to make editing and posting on WordPress based websites easier for everyone.
