Support » Plugin: Gutenberg » Gutenberg is Future

  • Gutenberg is the Future of WordPress.

    It’s certainly possible that those who dislike Gutenberg are more motivated to write a review, and hence the numbers may be skewed. However, an additional point of information is that the Classic Editor plugin, which switches the WordPress editor back to its previous form, has over 2 million installs. The Classic Editor plugin is not bundled with WordPress—it has to be deliberately installed. It may be possible to infer from this that around 2 million active users have, at least for now, decided against using Gutenberg.

    The most common complaints, as you read through reviews, can be summarized in these points:

    – Automatic rather than optional switch of editors
    – Breakages incompatibility with themes and plugins, or of existing workflows
    – Difficult to use, cumbersome
    – Not production-ready due to usability issues or bugs

    On the other hand, the most common points of praise are:

    – Easy to use
    – Non-developers can use it to create complex layouts
    – Makes WordPress more well-equipped for the future

    I’m so happy with Gutenberg. I’m most excited about the budding ecosystem of Gutenberg blocks and toolkits to help folks do even more with the new editor. What a time to be a WordPress developer!

    @wpdelower it’s great that you think the block editor is the future and even better to hear you are happy because that really matters. You mention the ecosystem around blocks and toolkits as a point of excitement and I have to agree, it really is an exciting time.
