Built-in Duotone Image Filter, Editor Navigation via Persistent List View, and Other Block Editor Improvements
The next batch of exciting updates to the block editor is live on WordPress.com. Powerful duotone image editing, a persistent list view to edit your page or post, and an update for picking table colors are all ready for you to build and improve the look of your site. Let’s take a closer look.



Built-in duotone image filter



Duotone is a much anticipated feature that allows you to choose between any two colors for an image’s shadows and highlights. Think black and white photos, but in any color combo of your choosing. What was once the power of standalone image-editing software is now at your fingertips in the block editor.



Establish a consistent tone across your site’s images or draw your audience’s eye with a catchy color combo for a big post.

Editor navigation via persistent List View



Level-up your editing game by selecting the List View in the top menu bar—this displays the entire block structure of your page or post.

How to Integrate HubSpot with WordPress
Your website content is only powerful if your visitors find it and act on it. And your contacts are their most worthwhile if they find you worthwhile enough to take the next step. This means that you have to keep both plates spinning at the same time: Quality content that brings in traffic and converts customers who you nurture over time. When you pair HubSpot with WordPress, you can do just that.
What is HubSpot?

HubSpot is full-service inbound marketing software. It lets you optimize your website for lead generation and conversion (i.e., attracting people and getting them on the path to becoming a customer). With HubSpot, you can:

Boost website traffic
Capture leads
Automate lead nurturing (i.e., build the relationship)
Convert the customer by making a sale

While you can use HubSpot as a stand-alone tool, it’s also possible to integrate it with WordPress via the dedicated plugin. You can combine your content management system (CMS) information with your HubSpot data to have it all centralized.
Inbound Marketing
Inbound marketing is the method of attracting customers to you instead of you going after them. To do that, you create high-value content and experiences that are personalized for them. The opposite of this is outbound marketing, where you interrupt potential customers with messaging that they may or may not want. With inbound marketing, you figure out what...
