I have been waiting for the release of WP 5.0 as I have been keen to try out the new Twenty Nineteen theme. Having looked at a preview of the theme I have mixed opinions.
The new editor that I can use to create posts is easy to use. At the same time it moves me away from the HTML/CSS editing that I normally tweak. The new theme makes use of more of the new blocks functionality. The downside for me is that I will have to spend some time trying to recreate some of the aspects of the site which I want to move across.
I have used some particular formatting styles for some of the pages of the site. I'd like to continue to use the same style but I need to understand if the new block editor can help me do that.
I still plan on moving to the new theme eventually. I plan to upload some more of my notes on STM32 development. This will be after I understand how to get the best out of the new theme.
