    Topic: Post Title

    in forum Support


    On several occasions, I have posted only to have the Gutenberg editor omit the title I provided and insert the post number instead.



    @ponytailsdesigns From your screenshot, it looks like your site uses the self-hosted version of WordPress rather than WordPress.com, which is what this forum is designed to help with.

    You may be interested in installing the Classic Editor plugin though to disable Gutenberg: https://wordpress.org/plugins/classic-editor/

    If you’re having further issues, please post in the self-hosted forums instead. For help and issues with Gutenberg specifically: https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/gutenberg/



    Hi there,

    I can’t justify my text in a “block” (only put it left, right or centre)

    Justify hasn’t been added to Gutenberg yet, though I’ve made a note of your request for it here though: https://github.com/Automattic/wp-calypso/issues/28696

    In the meantime, you can add the Classic Block and then use the short key which you mentioned and were previously using to Justify text. I appreciate that this is inconvenient, but unfortunately it’s the best way for now.

    Also, when I try to upload a tiled gallery I… loose all of my other photo galleries inside the post!

    Could you please clarify what you mean by this, since I’m unable to recreate currently. Are you using the Tiled Gallery Block? When exactly do the other images disappear (eg. after adding more images to an already added Tiled Gallery Block), and which blocks do they disappear from?

    Disaster… If I didn’t put money recenlty on my site, I would change a website maker instantly and leave this Gutenberg nightmare…

    You’re welcome to disable Gutenberg if it doesn’t yet suit your needs. If you’re trying to disable it on the Calypso interface, when editing a post, please click the options menu in the top right and then click “Switch to Classic Editor” at the bottom. The Classic Editor is going to be maintained until at least 2022.

    Let us know if you have you have any further questions or issues. :)

    I’m also having trouble customizing the Pullquote block in Twenty Nineteen for alixohlinauthor.com. I’m hoping to have a colored background similar to the demo version of the theme.

    In the question above, trnkajan mentions Regular and Solid Color as style options for the Pullquote block. I only see Regular and Large. I’m working in the Gutenberg editor on a premium plan. Am I missing something, or is this only customizable with CSS?



    I’m really disappointed by the Gutenberg edition of WordPress. I turned everything into blocks and now I’m having problems: I can’t justify my text in a “block” (only put it left, right or centre). Also, when I try to upload a tiled gallery I… loose all of my other photo galleries inside the post! The appear of course at the media library, but not on the post!
    You shouldn’t start the Gutenberg experience, since you weren’t ready for it at the beginning of this story.

    When I try to add a Pull Quote in Gutenberg it just shows up as a normal quote.

    Thanks! Help for sites that run the open source WordPress software will come from the community forums at https://wordpress.org/support/

    Hi –

    Please let me know which site you are working on.

    If your issue is particular to Gutenberg there’s some dedicated space at https://wordpress.org/plugins/gutenberg/


    Sure thing @jayefish – I am assuming you are using Gutenberg, but if you are not, it is still a similar process to align photos. You may look into creating a 2 column, 1 row table with no borders to put the images in if that helps.

    or make sure you completely finish text, then do the images and then start more text in the next block.

    Hope it helps you find the way that works best for you.



    Well, that’s good to know, although I’d never heard of Gutenberg in relationship to WordPress. The problem is keeping text from running down between the photos. Thanks for the help, Phil.



    Adding hyperlink doesn’t work. Must add manually in HTML.
    Modifying Hyperlinks to add target=”_blank” likewise.
    The Hyperlink “box” tends to be visible after modifying it.
    The focus in the Block is moving at random.
    It has a nasty tendency to add   willy-nilly if you paste HTML.
    The Gutenberg approach is very cumbersome, with “tons” of mouse clicks.
    Please fix the bugs & leave Classic Block “as is” afterwards.

    I am Using Chrome, latest version, on Windows 8 pro.



    Hi there,

    This is something that has to be added by the WordPress.org team who makes this editor. I’m adding your request to the issue already open for this in https://github.com/WordPress/gutenberg/issues/11054, but I cannot give you a timeline on when it might be added.



    Hi there,

    The block editor forms part of the Core WordPress software, so it’s not us on WordPress.com who builds it, but the team over at WordPress.org

    It doesn’t look like there are currently any plans to add color options to the Header and list blocks, though I’m adding your request to the open issue for that in https://github.com/WordPress/gutenberg/issues/6012

    There’s a plugin referenced in that thread that might work for you in the meantime.

    In general, though, header colors, and especially the post/page title color, should ideally be controlled on a global level for your site through custom CSS. Having different colors for different headings on your site is bad from a design perspective, and can also have a negative effect on accessibility.

    If you need help with custom CSS code to change your heading colors for the entire site, please start a live chat at https://wordpress.com/help/contact so we can help you with that there.

    Regarding changing color of a portion of text, the team building the editor have decided not to add that ability. You can see the discussion in https://github.com/WordPress/gutenberg/issues/6080. The same plugin mentioned in the other issue, Advanced Rich Text Tools, can be used to add this on your Business Plan site.


    I have an image file I would love to upload to show you what I mean about the Title field.

    But hopefully, this explanation will also help.

    When you click the Edit pen on the image via the Classic Editor, you have choices to fill out Alt text and below that in the Advanced options, you get the Image Title Attributes that allows text to appear when hovering over the image. But if you click the pencil icon of an image in Gutenberg, it takes you back to the media library, so you have no other options.


    No matter what I try, the formatting in the Edit page disappears in the actual WP page.

    I started out with a 3-column spreadsheet. I copied it to Word and used Word to convert it to text. I pasted portions of it to the page I was editing, and the nicely tabbed text reduced to one space, i.e., there was only 1 space between the entries. I pasted the converted text to TextEdit, then copied and pasted to the edit page.

    After saving each try, the result was the same: one space only, rather than a tab.

    1) How do i format text in the box?
    2) I would like to add tabs for spacing. How can I do that?

    Seems that this is a major problem in the new Gutenberg, which, overall, I actually like. There is something basic I am not understanding.

    My page is: https://nbstearmans.com/timeline-of-stearmans-in-new-brunswick-and-other-provinces-1952-to-1973/1955-2/

    Scroll down 3/4 to “List of Stearman aircraft …”.



    Hi there, you can customise the “Read more” text following step three of this guide: https://en.support.wordpress.com/more-tag/

    Note that’s made simpler using Gutenberg, where you just need to enter the text in the block. :)


    I’m having an issue using easyAzon with the Gutenberg editor. I can’t insert a link into a block but have to do it from the Document tab. This then puts the link in random blocks throughout the post. Anyone else found this happening? If so do you have a solution? Any help would be apreciated



    Hi @hannahpetri6385 ,

    I understand your frustration. I’m not sure if that is how this theme is supposed to work. Some themes automatically display an excerpt on the home page, but others may not. (The top post on the demo page shows a “Read More” button, but that could be achieved through the method I will describe below.) I’ll tag this post for staff to check, just in case.

    In the meantime, you’ll be happy to know there is a way to manually add a “Read More” link to posts displayed in your home page. What you will have to do is, when editing your posts, insert a “more” tag at the position you want the excerpt to cut at. If you are using the new Gutenberg editor, create a new block in your post and you will find the “more” tag underneath “Layout Elements”. You’ll have to do that for each post, but I have tried it out on my test site and confirmed it does work!

    Let us know how that goes. All the best!



    I have converted several pages which include slideshows to blocks.

    In each case the converter produces a block which says error encountered for the slideshow. When I recreate the gallery I can see no option to make it a slideshow.
