The WordPress paragraph block is for entering regular paragraph text.

In fact, this paragraph you’re reading right now is written with the WordPress paragraph block. Here’s how it looks in the WordPress editor:

Paragraph Block Settings

The Top Bar of the Paragraph Block allows you to:

  • Click the Paragraph icon to convert it to a different sort of block.
  • Align your text left, center, or right.
  • Bold or highlight text (select your text and click the icon to change the font style.)
  • Add a link (again highlight the text you want to link and choose the link button)
  • If you choose the down arrow, you can opt to underline, strikethrough, or change the color of your text, or insert an inline image or code into the block.

The Right Panel BlockSettings of the WordPress Paragraph Block allows you to:

  • Change your text size.
  • Add a drop cap (large first letter) to the block as in the image above.
  • Choose a different background color or text color for the entire block.
  • Specify a CSS class for the block in Advanced settings.

Here’s a brief video of adding a WordPress paragraph block and using its features:

You wouldn’t want to use all of them, though! Note that the video is a screencast using the block and does NOT have narration.

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.
