Testing Block Editor Safely
WordPress version 5.0 introduced the block editor, which you may already be using for posts and pages. In this article, we're going to demonstrate a process for testing Block Editor functionality with The Events Calendar. Many users of The Events Calendar and associated plugins, are already using block editor functionality and many more are just starting out. Now is the time to decide if Block Editor is right for your site and your Events Calendar usage.
- Log into your staging site
- Go to the admin console
- Choose Events → Settings and the display to the right will show the "General" tab
- Scroll down to the checkbox labeled "Activate Block Editor for Events" and check it
- Be sure to save your settings.
That's it. Now when you load an event or a post with tickets, you will be able to use the block editor!
As a heads up, we will be phasing out this activation toggle soon. In its place, Block Editor users will see our event and ticket blocks.
