    Instead of just bypassing the backend page editor, do you have plans to integrate this plugin with the Gutenberg editor interface?

    Hi @dpknauss,

    We’ve been looking into the possibility of translating the widgets to blocks. However, that might end up being an entirely separate product since the development is so drastically different, PHP vs JS.

    As the plugin currently exists, it bypasses the classic editor and directs the user to the customizer for adding content and sections in the form of widgets. The plugin works the same way with Gutenberg. When the Organic Custom page template is applied within the Gutenberg editor, it registers a widgetized area on the page, and directs the user to the customizer as well. So, either way, using Gutenberg or the classic editor, the editor is somewhat irrelevant at this stage.

    That being said, you can use the included Subpage Widget to display pages that were created with the Gutenberg editor. The result would be a combination of custom widgets and page content with blocks to create a custom layout.

    Also, we’re looking into building a “Widget Area” block, which could be used to register multiple custom widget areas within a page using the Gutenberg editor. You could then use a combination of blocks and widgets.

    I’m not sure if this answers the question, but we are exploring possibilities. 🙂

    Thanks!

    That makes a lot of sense — great ideas!

    Using widgets this way is ingenious — I’m surprised it wasn’t adopted earlier and more widely.
