Shortly after the release of WordPress 6.0, a new version of the Gutenberg block editor is also available. Gutenberg 13.3 brings some new blocks and exciting features, including a new “Table of Contents” block.
Gutenberg 13.3: The most important new features
Perhaps the most exciting new feature of Gutenberg 13.3 is the new Table of Contents block, which allows you to create a table of contents. The new block takes all the headings contained in an article and displays them, neatly listed, at the desired position – this pleases not only readers, but also Google.
Convenient: The contents of the block adapt live. It can thus be inserted even before the actual article or blog post is finished and is supplemented with headings inserted later.
Post Term and Query Loops
Post Term block variants are also new. They are created for each registered custom taxonomy. For example, if you create a product category taxonomy, a corresponding block can be added that lists all the terms assigned to the post from the product category area.
The query loops (Querry Loop) also now support parent filters. This should make working with pages or other hierarchical content forms much easier, as the new filter will thus automatically display content tagged with appropriate parents.
In addition, Gutenberg 13.3 offers the option to enable a block list view sidebar by default in the settings. The Heading block also offers control for Font Families, while a new transformation allows you to quickly switch between Cover and Media, as well as Text blocks.
In addition, there are many other improvements and optimizations, which can once again be read neatly in the announcement on WordPress.org. Also the performance could be optimized again, so Gutenberg 13.3 loads according to internal benchmark significantly faster than the previous version 13.2 and WordPress 6.0. Many exciting innovations so.
The WordPress plugin Gutenberg 13.3 can already be downloaded. It requires at least WordPress version 5.8 and PHP version 5.6 or higher.
