This summer, Blogs@Baruch will transition to a new editor for making Posts and Pages.
Starting June 1, the new default editor will be The Block Editor which allows for a more visual editing experience and integrates more layout design.
For an introduction to The Block Editor, check out the post that walks you through how to enable it now, and what features it includes: https://blogs.baruch.cuny.edu/help/the-block-editor/
The CTL will host one-hour workshops to walk you through how to create posts and pages with the new editor and transition content.
You can register for these workshops at:
May 31 from 11am-noon: https://blogs.baruch.cuny.edu/ctl/event/new-editor-on-blogsbaruch/
June 6 from 11am-noon: https://blogs.baruch.cuny.edu/ctl/event/new-editor-on-blogsbaruch-2/
June 22 from 2-3pm: https://blogs.baruch.cuny.edu/ctl/event/new-editor-on-blogsbaruch-3/
You can also sign up for a one-on-one appointment with Christopher Silsby or Shiraz Biggie at https://blogs.baruch.cuny.edu/ctl/appointments/
If you aren’t ready to make the transition on June 1, you will be able to switch back to the Classic Editor, but only until the end of the Fall 22 semester. As of January 2023, the Classic Editor will no longer be supported by WordPress and will be removed from the system. If you aren’t ready to use the Block Editor, you may re-enable the Classic Editor by following these instructions: https://blogs.baruch.cuny.edu/help/the-classic-editor/
This shift to The Block Editor provides dynamic layout and design opportunities for our faculty, students, and staff to create on Blogs@Baruch—all without needing to learn a new programming language.
We look forward to seeing what you create!
