Community blogs have been updated
We have updated Vivaldi Community Blogs to WordPress 5.8.
The update includes various updates and new options in the editor and blocks.
In addition to easy access to images from Unsplash, you can now include Instant Images also from Pixabay and Pexels. Look for the button in the top right corner of the editor.

And IMO that useless "SEO" plugin can be removed. I'd much rather have better themes support than some over-complicated plugin that only opens up possibilities for SEO scammers. Does anyone find a use for it?
Unfortunately, we can't allow custom CSS, but I'll ask whether we can add more themes.
Also, I forgot to mention in my first post, but you can now add all the same blocks available in the editor also as widgets to the site. Hopefully that adds a bit more flexibility and customisation options.
As for SEO, that plugin is actually needed and the one we have was the least obnoxious one we could find.
