Preguntas frecuentes

Is this plugin compatible with WordPress 5.0 / «Gutenberg»?

Yes! This plugin supports the Insert Special Characters plugin for WordPress 5.0. Install that plugin alongside this one to use a similar Character Map feature as the old WordPress. Thanks to 10up for building that plugin!

The old Character Map function remains available in WordPress 5.0 in two ways:

  1. On any page using the «Classic Editor» (pre-WordPress 5.0), most likely via the Classic Editor plugin.
  2. Via the «Classic» block of the new editor. (See the third screenshot.)
