WPTavern: Gutenberg 2.7 Released, Adds Ability to Edit Permalinks

WPTavern: Gutenberg 2.7 Released, Adds Ability to Edit Permalinks

Gutenberg 2.7 is available for testing and not only does it refine the visuals around block controls, it adds the highly requested ability to edit permalinks.


Editing Permalinks in Gutenberg 2.7

A new pagination block is available that adds a page break, allowing users to break posts into multiple pages. The block is located in the Blocks – Layout Elements section.

There are a number of changes to the link insertion interface. Gutenberg 2.7 brings back the option to have links open in the same window.


Toggle Determines Whether Links Open in a New Window

When editing linked text, the Unlink icon now stays in the toolbar instead of displaying within the link options modal. When adding links, there’s a URL suggestion tool similar to what’s available in WordPress’ current editor.

What will be welcomed news to plugin developers, the PluginSidebar API is exposed and considered final. According to the pull request, this change does the following.

Refactors all the existing Sidebar components to share the same set components and removes duplicated custom CSS styles applied to <PluginSidebar />. There are no changes to the public API of <PublicSidebar /> component, other than it is going to be available under wp.editPost.PluginSidebar.

Grzegorz Ziółkowski

This release, like the others before it, has a changelog that’s a mile long. Please check out the release post for a detailed list of changes and links to issues on GitHub.
