This summer, Blogs@Baruch transitioned to a new editor for making Posts and Pages.
Starting June 1, the new default editor became 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 what features it includes: https://blogs.baruch.cuny.edu/help/the-block-editor/
The CTL hosted one-hour workshops through out the summer to walk you through how to create posts and pages with the new editor and transition content.
We will also offer Support Drop-In Hours over Zoom in August.
August 30, 10:00am-noon: https://blogs.baruch.cuny.edu/ctl/event/blogsbaruch-drop-in-7/
August 30, 2:00pm-4:00pm: https://blogs.baruch.cuny.edu/ctl/event/blogsbaruch-drop-in-8/
August 31, 2:00pm-4:00pm: https://blogs.baruch.cuny.edu/ctl/event/blogsbaruch-drop-in-9/
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, 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!
