  • @mburridge wanted clarification on whether to continue creating BlockBlock Block is the abstract term used to describe units of markup that, composed together, form the content or layout of a webpage using the WordPress editor. The idea combines concepts of what in the past may have achieved with shortcodes, custom HTML, and embed discovery into a single consistent API and user experience. Editor Handbook issues in the Documentation-Issue-Tracker. (see issues #379 and #75).
  • While the Block Editor Handbook falls under the GutenbergGutenberg The Gutenberg project is the new Editor Interface for WordPress. The editor improves the process and experience of creating new content, making writing rich content much simpler. It uses ‘blocks’ to add richness rather than shortcodes, custom HTML etc. team, @milana_cap mentioned in one of the issues that we might as well gather all issues regarding the Block Editor Handbook in the Documentation-Issue-Tracker while the docs team is preparing to send over a larger issue to the Gutenberg team with all sorts of improvements.
  • Similar issues as #379 and #75 should be posted in #docs so the team can take a look at it. @milana_cap later clarified the point on slack
