    I was compelled to write a review for this new editor. I think it’s a resounding success in every way and the only thing I can come up with to explain the dissatisfaction is the refusal of people to embrace change.

    The original WordPress editor is really outdated. Working for a tech magazine and writing multiple tech & gaming articles PER DAY I can assure you, the original WordPress editor is a real NIGHTMARE when it comes to adding multiple images, galleries, blockquotes and different text types and you have to almost always use the HTML editor to correct problems. Which feels so outdated coming from a place where everything is a visual framework these days.

    Adding TinyMCE Advance didn’t improve the situation and I’ve been, along with my team, working with this editor since the very begining. Our first tech magazine was made in 2009.

    I’ve tried Gutenberg editor because I’m writing a full review for an important Divi Blog, one that you’ll see posted soon enough. Suffice to say my comments are going to be all positive, all the way through.

    I just couldn’t find anything to complain about this new editor. I think it’s just freaking brilliant. I’ve been working with editors since years now and I’ve develop websites in my free time, this was a much needed change.

    The Gutenberg editor is going to be my NEW DEFAULT editor for my tech magazine and I’ll speedup the process to teach my crew on how to handle it as I want to quickly get up to speed with this change.

    Congrats guys, this is some serious wise and intelligent new design. Do not listen to all the haters.. if someone wants to “go back to joomla” because of this.. then.. by all means, do it ! I’ve been a longtime wordpress user, I use it daily more than 5 hours in a row, each day, weekends included and I am sure this is gonna be a success.

    Thank you so much for leaving your review, it really matters and getting feedback makes Gutenberg a better product. I hope you leave a link to your post once it’s done, would be great to read it.

    Thanks Tammie. I do believe the project is spot on about all the problems the current WordPress editor has and I will speak positive stuff about this on my spanish blog too.
