Support » Plugin: Gutenberg » A step in the right direction

  • After my limited testing today, I’m less anxious about what impact Gutenberg was going to have on our development workflow.

    From what I can see there will practically be no change for us, but the editing experience will be more robust for clients. For years it’s been far too easy for a client to accidentally delete a shortcode or malform some HTML in the old editor, and problems like that could be mitigated with the new block editing experience.

    The Drop Cap option is an odd choice though. If you’re going to have that, why not pull quotes as well? And perhaps other magazine layout tropes? That sort of thing is like cat-nip for content creators. I picture a world where suddenly every WordPress website is going to be drop cap city.

    As for the core vs plugin argument, I’m on the fence. Either way won’t have any meaningful impact on our development workflow, but I can understand why developers who rely heavily on page-builders might take issue with this being in core.

    That aside, I like what I’m seeing so far.

    @mikeyott thanks for taking the time to leave a review and test Gutenberg. It’s great to see you are less anxious after giving it a try. What are you most excited about?

    There are styles of quotes, it’s interesting you say about the magazine layout tropes, that is certainly something to consider.
