Support » Plugin: Gutenberg » I wish I liked it

  • I so much want Gutenberg to work. I think it’s a fabulous idea in some respects. WordPress is due for a major cleanup of the big blank editing screen – that’s why I use Advanced Custom Fields for everything.

    However, I’m afraid it’s a dog!

    We run over 400 WordPress sites for clients.

    I’ve now setup 3 with Gutenberg and handed over to clients. In each of the 3 cases, the clients keep getting error messages ‘updating failed’ (whatever that means). In each of the 3 cases, I’ve had to roll them back to the classic editor. These haven’t been complicated sites.

    Surely, surely, these things can be ironed out soon! How many iterations will it take before it’s working?

    Either get it sorted SOON or turn it into an optional plugin. Don’t force this on 30% of the world’s websites as a half-baked, work-in-progress.

  • CLAPS!

    Much agreed here @code-monkey. I for one thought it was going to be an actual website builder, tried it out today and was horrified. Basically, just GUI and it’s just an editor and I didn’t feel it was that much better than the current editor IMO.

    But yea, I agree it should become a plugin and it absolutely shouldn’t be forced on the masses, with the very real possibility of breaking so many websites — that won’t be fun at all for my client websites, I’ve already begun installing the classic editor. Sigh
