Have you ever created a great looking site, implemented the best practices for technical SEO and wrote documentation on how to manage content so it works right only to see the client do it all wrong? It’s frustrating to watch a beautiful design crumble due to lack of consistency.
The WordPress editor traditionally has been an everything goes zone. With Gutenberg, everything is a block and we can use blocks to create consistent structure for our content. I’m not a designer or an SEO, but as a web developer I know that consistency is key to good design and good SEO. This talk is all about using Gutenberg to make it so the simplest thing to do in the post editor is the right thing to do.
We will cover create color palettes, block whitelists and block templates, key features of Gutenberg for creating a custom structure for posts and custom post types. This is the information that site builders and small agencies need to start putting together their Gutenberg toolkit for better looking and better performing WordPress sites.
