Description

Actual we have this help link in the editor:

https://imgur.com/a/OULwS93

Its linked to: https://wordpress.org/documentation/article/wordpress-block-editor/

Since this is the general guide to the block editor, it is not very helpful for the slightly customized editor in the forum. My suggestion would be to change the link to this URL: https://wordpress.org/support/forum-user-guide/block-editor/

Nice! And, just to make an anecdotal point on this, I had no clue that https://wordpress.org/support/forum-user-guide/block-editor/ existed. 😅

Would be nice to spice up the Sharing Images section with content from https://make.wordpress.org/support/handbook/appendix/adding-screenshots-on-the-forums/ but since that's very new, I'll let it ride for a week while it's collecting feedback first.

Apart from the blurb about turning off the block editor, I don't see anything novel in that article. It appears to show how to use the block editor. I would prefer we remove content that includes Gutenberg walkthroughs as they are more likely to fall out of sync and complicate SEO.

The block editor in the forums is a very limited and customized version of WordPress’s block editor.

I’d prefer that we don’t use SEO as an excuse to deprive our forum users of a helpful resource.

If that is a problem, which it does not appear that it is, we can easily add more descriptive headers to make it clearer as WordPress.org Support Forum Documentation and not WordPress Documentation.
