Newly updated in 2020, the page editor in the WashU Web Theme is now based entirely on blocks. The block-based editor streamlines how you lay out pages and edit your content.

Which page editor your site is using depends on when it was created. A site created on or after June 1, 2020, has the new editor by default. A site created before June 1, 2020, uses the legacy page editors — unless the site has already been upgraded to the new block editor.

Sites created
before June 1, 2020:

If you don’t know which editor your site has

You can find out your site editor by logging into your site (see login instructions). In the dashboard under Get help with your site, look for your editor: either Blocks or Classic + Tailor.

How the new editor affects your site

The new block editor integrates the layout and design tools of a page builder like Tailor into the core page editor, combining the best of both into a single editor. For now, sites may opt into the new editor. Eventually the upgrade will be required of all WashU Web Theme sites.
