WordPress is one of the most popular content management systems available, and it’s very user-friendly. However, if you are new to building websites with WordPress, you may find yourself a bit overwhelmed by all the options. One of the most common tasks is moving blocks around on your page. Whether you want to rearrange content or switch out images, this blog tells you exactly how to do it.
How to Move Blocks in WordPress
The first step is to open up the block editor. You can do this by going to Pages > All Pages in your WordPress dashboard and selecting the page that you want to edit. Once in the block editor, select the block that you want to move by clicking on it. Once selected, a menu will appear at the top of the block that allows you to move it up or down on the page. Alternatively, you can click and drag the block into place using your mouse or trackpad.
The next step is to delete any unnecessary blocks from your page. To do this, hover over the block that you wish to delete and click on the “X” icon that appears in its upper right corner. This will delete the entire block and all of its contents from your page. Be sure that this is what you want before deleting any blocks as they cannot be recovered once deleted! If need be, duplicating a section prior to deleting it could prove useful for future reference or use elsewhere on your site.
Finally, if there are any changes that need saving or updating such as adding an image or changing text content within a certain block then make sure these changes are saved before exiting out of editing mode! To save changes simply click ‘Update’ from either within a particular block or at top of editing window when finished making all desired changes across entire page/site as necessary!
Moving blocks around in WordPress doesn’t have to be intimidating – it’s actually quite easy! All it takes is a few clicks and drags with your mouse or trackpad, and voila! Your blocks are rearranged exactly how you wanted them—no coding necessary! With practice and some patience, soon enough anyone can become an expert when it comes to managing their own website’s layout via WordPress’ drag-and-drop capabilities! Now go ahead and make those blocks dance around just like they’re supposed too! Have fun!
