What is landing page

Landing page is the main page of a website which can be accessible to users when they visit the website. Most of the landing pages have no slug but they are accessible on website domain names. The other name of the landing page is home page or index page.

Why use landing page

As you know, “First impression is the last impression”, so if your website home page is attractive and good looking then the visitors will make a good impression. Always try to make the landing page clean and professional and make good navigation on it, so that users can easily access other pages and posts.

What is Gutenberg and classic editors in WordPress

The other thing which we should know about Gutenberg and classic editor. In the starting days of WordPress there was only a classic editor and it was a simple one. It does not provide good options for editing in WordPress. In the below image you can see the classic editor as it has limited options.
