Headings can help structure your page and make your content more readable by humans as well as search engines.

To add a heading, click on the Add Block button.

Detailed instructions on adding blocks can be foundĀ here.

The editor automates a search engine optimized layout by considering the page title is the <h1> tag, so subsequent heading blocks begin at <h2> and so on, but you can choose your heading level according to your style in the toolbar.

Each block has its own block-specific controls that allow you to manipulate the block right in the editor. The heading block offers the following options in its toolbar:

You can set a pre-set size for your headings from the block settings.

You can also set a custom color for your heading tags.


Headings levels (H1, H2, etc.) should be used to organize sections and subsections in a nested format similar to an outline. Using good heading structure with proper nesting, and not skipping levels, makes your content more organized and navigable for those using assistive technology, like screen readers. The main page title of your WordPress page will receive an H1, thus, all content should begin with H2. Clicking the Document Overview icon (that looks like three offset lines) in the top left of your editor, then choosing the Outline tab, will reveal your heading structure and provide warnings if your current structure isn’t accessible.

We understand that accessible heading levels don’t always fit your desired look for page layout. So we have provided the option to emulate the style of other heading levels with size and color in the heading block options.
