Support » Plugin: Gutenberg » Finally making the move to the block editor – damn it’s fast

  • I’ve held off from using the block editor since it’s release, preferring to stick with the familiar pagebuilder I’d been using since 2015 + the Classic Editor plugin. However, knowing that the block editor is the present and the future, I’ve recently rebuilt 5 of 6 sites with the block editor. I used the Twenty Twenty theme for the more simple sites, and Kadence for those with more complex page, header and footer layouts. The build has become easier each time, and the mobile page loads are awesome. I’m getting 905%+ scores on Google PageSpeed for mobile, and I no longer need the caching plugin. The editor appearance on the back-end still feels busy and can take some rummaging to find the elements that you are looking for, but the available settings, elements and companion plugins are extensive.

  • Hi @pidengmor

    The editor appearance on the back-end still feels busy and can take some rummaging to find the elements that you are looking for, but the available settings, elements, and companion plugins are extensive.

    Thank you for providing information about your experience with the Gutenberg plugin. How best do you think the elements should be displayed for the editor to look less busy?

    Please be advised that you can add this suggestion to the plugin’s Gutenberg repository as a feature request:

    https://github.com/WordPress/gutenberg/issues

    Let me know if you are comfortable adding the feature request to the repository.

    Hi @thelmachido,
    You know I wrote that, and then looked again and saw that all the different sidebars can be minimised when not in use. I am still getting used to the editor, and have just started to use the top toolbar, which was one of my gripes as the floating toolbar often seemed to get in the way. If I have any ideas for improvements, I’ll open an issue using the link you posted.
