Gutenberg Animated Text Block Tutorial


This guide is all about showing you how to use Gutenberg Animated Text Block to add some flair to your website. This tool lets you create animated text, perfect for headlines or important messages. You have two animation styles to choose from: a typing effect that mimics someone typing the text and a sliding effect that makes the text appear to slide in from off-screen. For the typing effect, you can control the speed of the typing and the delay before it starts and disappears. The sliding effect allows you to set how fast the text moves and how long it stays on the screen. There’s also a handy option to pause the animation if someone hovers over the text.


Before you start with Gutenberg Animated Text Block in WordPress, make sure the required plugin is installed and turned on.
