    For manging a lot of content, a lot of users and a lot of skillsets, Gutenberg is a nightmare. That said, I can see why it’s useful for some folks. If you’re making a blog, you want it to look good easily and quickly, this would be great. Although, I’m not sure why you wouldn’t just want to use WordPress.com if that was what you needed.

    For everyone else that has been developing WordPress sites for years and have gone way beyond typical blog functionality, this isn’t going to work. I get that WordPress needs to keep up with the times, but this isn’t the thing to do it with. If there ever comes a day when I can’t disable Gutenberg, I’ll stop updating until I can migrate all my sites to a new platform. I hate that I’m saying that.

    I’m also saddened for those folks working on Gutenberg because they truly have done an amazing job, only to feel such a strong community backlash. Even though I can’t use it, I can see the amount of thought and work that went into this new interface. It’s the direction of the platform that has become the problem. I’m not sure how to move forward from here since it seems like leadership isn’t listening to what the community is saying.
