The New WP Gutenberg Editor vs Free Website Builders

In 2018, WordPress decided to show homage to Johannes Gutenberg, the inventor of movable type printing. They did this by releasing Gutenberg, which is a revised way of building a website using WordPress.

Immediately, people began to wonder if Gutenberg was going to be the end of free website builders. If the current reaction of web designers to Gutenberg is an indication of the future, website builders can breathe a temporary sigh of relief.

That being said, Gutenberg has the potential to definitely upend the website builder industry.

Today we’ll take a few minutes and look at what Gutenberg is and the current and potential future impact this update to WordPress could have on website builders.

We’ll also compare it with currently popular website builders to see where the differences lie.

A few days ago I updated one of my sites to use Gutenberg, but after 5 minutes I decided to stick with the old editor for now. In the future we’ll see 😉 .

Bootstrap 4 Carousel: How To Stop Autoplay

In this tutorial we’ll see how to stop the Autoplay function on a Bootstrap carousel.

If you’ve used this component of the Bootstrap framework before, you probably know that by default it cycles through elements automatically as soon as the page is loaded.

For this tutorial we’ll use one of these carousel templates (template 3) as an example. At the end you can download all the example templates. Let’s begin!
