[*]WordPress is the most powerful content management system globally, used by millions of people every day to create outstanding websites on command. It’s a feature-packed, constantly-evolving platform that anyone can use to present ideas awesomely.
[*]However, many of those features are entirely unknown to most users despite their robust use cases. In this article, we’ll cover some of the most commonly-overlooked features in WordPress to maximize your creative output.
[*]Let’s get started!
1. Reusable Gutenberg Blocks
[*]A reusable block allows you to save a particular block or group of blocks so you can use them elsewhere on your site. They’re an excellent tool for saving you a great deal of time if you frequently add the same content to the same block or group of blocks.
[*]If you want to avoid creating the same content over and over, you can turn it into a reusable block by following these steps:
- Choose a block
- In the toolbar, click on the three dots
- Click Add to Reusable Blocks
- Name your new block
- Select Publish, then click Save
2. Add a Hyperlink by Pasting
[*]Links within a text can be annoying to create manually, but WordPress has made the process easier. You can do this by copying a link to your clipboard, selecting the text you want to link from, and then pasting the URL into the text.
[*]As you can see from the screenshot above, WordPress successfully placed the link. You can edit it further from the menu that will appear after that.
3. Post Scheduling
[*]Frequently it’s better to schedule a particular post to publish on a specific date rather than right away. Thankfully, WordPress supports post scheduling, allowing you to set a specific date and time for your post to be pushed live onto your website.
[*]To do so, simply navigate to status and visibility under post settings and find the publish tab, where you can change the date and time to whatever you wish.
4. Embed Social Media Content
[*]It used to be painful to integrate external content into WordPress, but it has become much more manageable thanks to a new Gutenberg block called Embed.
[*]To use it, search for the Embed block like you would any other block. Once added, paste in the URL
