Kadence Blocks Gutenberg Plugin

The same speaker at the meet-up who recommended the Calendar plugin, also recommended Kadence Blocks, a Gutenberg plugin. Last December, in the post I wrote about WooCommerce themes I had tried, I mentioned a theme by Kadence.

I was impressed last night with all the things that the Kadence Blocks can do. After the meet-up I went to the Kadence website.

I see that in addition to the free standard Kadence Blocks they market an Advanced WooCommerce plugin that does more.

The features that interest me are variation swatches, custom cart messages that target specific carts, and a category description area below the category images. That last feature saves having to use Advanced Custom Fields to accomplish that job. The question in my mind is whether this plugin plays nicely with the Yoast SEO plugin and recognise one another.

Gutenberg Visual Editor Disabled?

When I went to edit a post on one of my sites that I had not visited for a while, I saw the back-end code that powers Gutenberg rather than the visual editor.

After reading about the issue on the WordPress forums, I went to my user profile and at the top under Personal Options, the box next to ‘Disable the visual editor when writing’ was ticked. I unticked it and everything in the back end went back to the normal Gutenberg appearance.

So the solution was easy, but I do not recall checking that box in my profile – but who knows.

Just in case, I deactivated and deleted the Limit Logins plugin and installed and activated WordFence and ran a scan and the site is clean.
