Support » Plugin: Gutenberg » A work in progress

  • Thanks to the development team for seeking to improve the underlying architecture of WordPress, giving freely of their time, and working to make something excellent.

    Using Gutenberg at this time is similar to trying to drive a car that is not completed on the assembly line. At this point it’s rough, but WordPress is being rebuilt from the inside out, which is a positive thing. I look forward to the future stages of this product, where I think we will see it become more polished and mature.

    The entire team has my best wishes moving forward!

    Thanks for leaving a review and I want to assure you that the team read reviews. It’s worth noting that at WordCamp US over 90 usability tests did actually happen – across all types of users. Making sure we hear all voices is key and part of the focus of the team.

    Today, Gutenberg is still being developed. There are weekly improvements coming from the testing feedback, from issues being made and from feedback like this review. The work to smooth the flows is key to this, iterating and improving.

    It’s worth noting that Elementor is a page builder, whilst the first version of Gutenberg is not intended to be that. Customization like page building is coming after 5.0.



    Tammie and the Core Team,

    Thanks for your thoughtful response and for letting me know about the usability testing. As I’ve read more about the project, I’m encouraged by your team’s effort to improve the structure of WordPress, as well as benefit everyone in the WordPress ecosystem, while listening to your users. Perhaps what the users are looking at now is akin to looking at the frame of a car – it’s not close to being finished and wouldn’t be fair to review as a car at this point, but the correct structure is being put in place. I’ll update my review to reflect that.
