Visual Editor – Blocks Explained

A massive update has been released and it’s a big one. Hold onto your hats. There’s a lot of new terms and design updates within Carrot that will be seen on your end. As with any major updates and improvements, some things you’re used to had to change to make way for a smoother editing experience. 

Why the new editor? We’re all about innovation and went after solving a pain our members have had with the classic editor, knowing if the changes being made in the editor are what they wanted on the site. Ideally, your editor should look the way you want your site to look so you don’t consistently bounce back-and-forth from the editor to your page. And you don’t have to use code. That’s right! You asked, and here’s our first release of the “new editor.” You can still use the “classic editor,” but we believe you’ll love the “new editor” after you give it an honest-to-good shot.

This page dives into every option available regarding the blocks you can add, what they are for, and how you can use them. If you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our team via live chat (weekdays 8 AM to 5 PM Pacific Time) or email at
