Support » Plugin: Gutenberg » I like WordPress 5 with the new gutenberg editor

  • Faith Review by a WordPress fun and PHP developer.

    TinyMCE Editor is over.

    I highly encourage everyone to keep this new editor because classic TinyMCE editor is horrible but haters are unable to understand it and they want to stick to it.

    Gutenberg is a modern minimal and clean new editor that everyone who loves WordPress should use. It makes WordPress better.

    Developers spent time to develop it and it becomes better and better. New WordPress version 5 is so good. Probably one of the best updates so far.

    Of course Elementor and visual composer are better. This plugin is an editor and not a professional page design builder.

    This plugin was developed to replace TinyMCE Editor and people should understand and support this nice plugin.

  • I like GUTENBERG a lot, as it is very easy to handle, especially when it come to html-embed, which works fine now, and gives me a preview. The only thing that sucks, that it steals my “revo composer” that came with my theme.. and this is pretty bad and I don’t know how to handle this now. (Will the composer be back, if I re-install the theme?)

    There is no need for a new editor with page design capability, because the concept of WordPress is to strictly separate CONTENT from DESIGN/LAYOUT.

    Therefore, the themes with various degrees of layout and design capabilities and the page builders were created to turn CONTENT entered at the front end into a DESIGN/LAYOUT set up at the backend by the themes and/or page builders.

    Gutenberg is just disturbing this concept. I am using Divi and lots of us have been waiting for their Theme builder to be released, which is catching up to other page builders in that regard. It is supposed to enable us to create page and post template layouts in Divi – but now it seems that Gutenberg templates are starting to become the new kid on the block – in direct contrast to this concept of page builders using their superior power to create these templates. This is just in direct competition to all page builders that are WAY more advanced. It’s not the job of a front-end content editor to design and layout a page or post.

    This is all going into the WRONG direction and has not been thought through.

    This plugin can easily be compared with Page Builder by SiteOrigin.

    PBBS is a very popular and great WordPress plugin that allows users to edit content from the WP Dashboard.

    Their main difference is that Gutenberg gives you the ability to edit content in the design mode. You don’t need to update every time to see the effect in the frontend.

    You can add widgets, columns, colors, etc something that old TinyMCE editor was lacking.

    Of course you can use both Divi and Gutenberg there is no problem to it. Just please do me a favour and do not use Old tinyMCE.

    Let’s give Gutenberg a try because it has the perspective to be better and better.

    My only concern is that it’s not compatible with Woocommerce yet.

    I would prefer for Divi to give WordPress the flick and become an independent website builder in its own right.

    Let’s not derail this person’s review.

    The thing is, I don’t consider it minimal or clean. It’s messy. If there weren’t any “blocks” dividing up all my content, maybe that would be clean. As it is it just feels like a cumbersome waste of space with everything I need to access hidden away.

    I can’t say that it is clean either, it is wasting screen real estate because the editor is a half as wide as the old one, with just empty space in between. Also you’re forced into having two separate scrollbars, one for the editor and one for the sidebar.
