Try Our New Tools for Creating Beautiful Sites
February 4, 2022
Last week we opened up limited access to a revolutionary array of new site editing tools that will transform how you create, edit, and update the look and feel of your WordPress.com website by leveraging easy-to-use drag and drop functionality.
Today we’re excited to announce that the wait is over. Over the next few weeks, we’ll be rolling these new tools out to all of our customers. Here’s what that means for you.via WordPress.com News Blog: Try Our New Tools for Creating Beautiful Sites
Now that full-site editing is coming to anyone who wants it here on the WordPress.com platform, once the initial tremors settle down, I hope we will be back to blogging as we knew it pre-2018’s introduction of the Gutenberg Block Editor, obviously with significant changes none-the-less. There is nothing more disturbing than writing a post while the ground beneath you is buckling and shifting. And let’s be frank, the last 4 years have been a seismic adventure that not everyone here wanted to take.
As always, the information in this post is correct as of publication date. Changes are inevitable.
How was this post shared and what happened: Shared via the “PressThis” sharing button at the end of the original post. Nothing appeared in the pop-up editing box that opened following clicking the button, even though I highlighted post text first; not the post title, featured image, an excerpt nor a link back to the original post. I added them manually either in the pop-up editing box or when editing the saved draft post in my dashboard.

Additional note: clicking the PressThis sharing button on a blog post creates a new post on your Primary website by default.
