Weekly WordPress News: Gutenberg Block Editor Mobile Beta
The Gutenberg block editor is going mobile! Well, kind off…
A stripped-down version of the block editor is now in beta testing for mobile apps, though it won’t give you access to all the blocks right away.
Beyond that, there are new block management features proposed for WordPress 5.2, and we compare the new Toolset Forms plugin to another form stalwart, Gravity Forms.
Let’s get to all of this week’s news…
