    Corey McKrill: Gutenberg and WordCamp.org’s Shortcodes

    WordCamp Portland 2018Speaker: Corey McKrill

    April 30, 2019 — One of the exciting things about Gutenberg blocks is that they can serve a similar purpose to many shortcodes that generate a “block” of content, but with more flexibility and a much more user-friendly interface. Creating Gutenberg versions of your shortcodes is also a good step in future-proofing your plugins and sites. This talk shows how some of the custom shortcodes from WordCamp.org have been adapted into Gutenberg blocks.
