Note: The old blocks and core WordPress blocks will no longer be editable in the new v3 editor. They are still viewable by site visitors, but you will no longer be able to edit them. To continue using your templates, you will also need to replace all your old blocks with new blocks. To learn more, go to https://newsletterglue.com/docs/collection/v3/
