The heading block allows you to add headings to your post.

You’ll find the heading block under text blocks:

You can set a heading within the block:

Or you can choose a heading level from within the heading block settings from the right side panel.

In the right panel, you’ll find a choice of font sizes for your heading or the ability to set a custom size. You’ll also find the ability to set a custom text or background color.

If you scroll down to the bottom, you’ll also find where you can set a custom HTML anchor for the heading block. You can read more about how to set an HTML anchor in this post.

And, just as with all blocks, you can set a custom CSS class for the block.

Why use a heading block?

Organizing your posts using various header levels is good for SEO and also helps with readability as people tend to scroll through blog posts looking for the content they want vs. sitting down for a good, long read as with an essay in a print article or book.

Still, you can always choose to disregard using headings if it’s appropriate for your individual piece regardless of what your SEO plugin might tell you.

Tip: Reserve the H1 heading level for your post title. Use H2 and below for sections of your post.

Cheryl
Cheryl is a former Occupational Therapist and WordPress enthusiast who became a writer in some parallel universe and occasionally, but infrequently, publishes things in this one. She writes two blogs (or is it three) which she won't quit because she knows that blogs, in her case, are like a hydra and if she cuts one off two more will take its place. When she's not doing that, she enjoys hiking, cycling, kayaking (formerly fast, now ebike), messing around with Adobe illustrator, making assorted things, meditating (though she wouldn't call that "like," and reading. She normally doesn't speak about herself in the third person, but she sometimes uses "we" in the royal sense while writing this blog. She lives in Poulsbo, WA with her spouse, her youngest adult daughter, a very old mutt, and a Siamese cat.
