WordPress 6.0 has arrived, and with it comes a key new feature: the editing experience.
The new editing experience is a major step forward for WordPress. It introduces a number of features that will help you create and edit content with ease:
- A cleaner, more intuitive interface. The new editor has been rebuilt using HTML5 and CSS3, which allows it to use modern design standards like “responsive” layouts and clean typography.
- Keyboard shortcuts for common tasks. You can navigate the post editor quickly by pressing keys on your keyboard instead of clicking buttons all over the place!
- Distraction-free writing mode. When you’re writing or editing a post, this feature hides everything except what’s important—the words—so you don’t have any distractions while you work.�
You can learn more about the new editing experience in our documentation on [editing](https://codex.wordpress.com/Editing_Posts#Editing_the_Post_Content).

We’ve made it easy to compose interesting layouts.
Now, you can make your blog really stand out with a variety of different column layouts. You can pick from a number of pre-made options that get you started quickly, or customize the layout to match your content and brand. You can add columns and change the size of columns; add rows and change their size as well. You can also add images, videos or audio files along with text blocks to create a variety of different layouts for your posts.
You can pick from a variety of different column layouts to fit your content, without being constrained to predefined templates.
Columns are a new way to format your content. You can use them to add variety to your page and make it easier for readers to scan through the information on a page.
Depending on the theme you choose, WordPress 6.0 comes with several different column styles that you can choose from:
- 1 Column (default) – This is the same layout we’ve been using in the past few versions of WordPress, but now there are many more options for making things look nice!
- 2 Columns – Also known as “sidebar on right” this layout puts sidebar content on the right-hand side of each page instead of after every post or page in blog archives like previous versions did by default.
- 3 Columns – This one is pretty self-explanatory; it uses three columns across instead of two which makes it great for displaying full width images without having them cut off when viewed at smaller sizes like some other themes tend do do due their design choices such as using large fonts or images above text which may cause an overlap issue with some users’ browsers not being able to display HTML5 videos properly so they end up seeing nothing at all (which isn’t good).
Gutenberg makes writing rich posts effortless, with features like lists and tables, as well as text and image highlighting to help you distinguish your thoughts.
You can create rich posts in WordPress 6.0 with the new Gutenberg editor—a modern block-based design that lets you put your content where you want it on the page. You can also use it to easily highlight text and images in your post, or add lists and tables to help you organize your ideas.
It’s responsive, so you don’t need to worry about formatting your posts differently depending on whether you’re posting from a desktop computer or mobile phone: The editor will automatically adjust itself based on how much room is available for display (and whether there’s even an internet connection).
Want to include a pull quote or make something bold? A quote-block is there for you. All you need to do is click the plus sign (+) to add it easily.
If you’re a writer, this feature is for you.
Want to include a pull quote or make something bold? A quote-block is there for you. All you need to do is click the plus sign (+) to add it easily. Quote blocks can be used for more than just quotes! They can also be used as headers, which means they’ll break out of the post’s body text and run across the top—and even down the right side—of your content. You could also use them as formatting tools, e.g., making text size or color larger/smaller; creating indentations; etcetera…
You can also use quote blocks as way of highlighting important points in your post by putting them on top while keeping everything else below it in its usual place! This makes it easier for readers who want all the juicy info without having any distractions getting in their way (and helps prevent scrolling fatigue).
Because quote blocks are flexible enough for all sorts of uses, if there isn’t anything else that suits your fancy…just play around with them until something does!
Thanks to the mobile-friendliness of the editor, you can create great posts on the go! The editor is responsive so that you can easily format your post regardless of whether you’re posting from your desktop or mobile phone.
