Support » Plugin: Gutenberg » Concerns over Classic Editor Long-Term

  • Resolved metallikat36


    I have decided I will permanently use the Classic Editor plugin. Gutenberg breaks my Academic Blogger’s Toolkit plugin, which is irreplaceable for what I am doing, which is rigorous scientific writing.

    My question is this: For the great many of us who will be sticking with the Classic Editor, what is going to happen to us long-term? Are we going to end up having security vulnerabilities? Will they day come when switching to Gutenberg is no longer a choice? Will the classic editor still continue to receive attention? I fear the claim that “we always have the option to stick with the classic editor” may in the long-term just be lip service.

    One thing that would really make me feel better is that the Gutenberg team actually has a plan for evaluating the success of Gutenberg after it is released, and having a path to actually choosing to abandon the project and revert to the Classic Editor. I understand that people can be unduly negative sometimes, but if developers are not willing to seriously consider the possibility that this may not ultimately do more good than harm (considering the reviews are predominantly negative) then that is a clear sign of senselessness. I formally request the Gutenberg team include in their formal project path a review at some point, that fairly voices the option of reverting.
