My biggest complaint about the new Gutenberg WordPress e
While working on profiles on my Stratus Burne residents blog I’ve started using classic editor blocks. I was curious about it today and my curiosity paid off! So, here is how to make slideshows within Gutenberg blocks…
When adding a block choose classic. If you don’t see it type it into the block search.
Inside the classic block looks pretty much exactly like our old classic editor. Indeed you can write an entire post within that one block if you so desire. In the top right of the block click insert media.
And then, when you’re in the media selection pop-up on the top left
And so, you select the pics/screenshots you want in your slideshow then create
Now simply choose the size you want the pics/screenshots to be and under type select slideshow.
You’ll need to click a space under the classic block to start another
And that’s it! Super simple and I’m so thankful I figured it out. First, because using the Smart Slider plug-in for just a few screenshots seemed a bit overboard. And second, those of you who don’t have access to plug-ins at all pretty much lost the ability to create slideshows. I hope this helps.
