Rethinking Content Editing in WordPress

How can we improve and update the posting experience in WordPress? In this concept, content blocks can be dragged, dropped, and reordered inside the post editor, and highlighting text brings up a formatting toolbar.

This alternate concept explores adding content blocks inline.

When you select text, a formatting box comes up. This allows for quicker and easier text formatting.

While you're not typing and your cursor rests inside the post editor, a prompt to add a content block appears.

When you click "add block", a popup appears with a list of different content types you can add to your site. These content types range from media, to social content (like tweets), to markup.

When you select a content block, it drops it into your post editor. You can drag and drop to reorder based on where in your post you want it to appear.

Each content type has different options you can apply to control its appearance. With images, you have the option of changing its size and alignment.
