Support » Plugin: Gutenberg » Improved over time, WP5.5 version is pretty cool

  • Hi guys, you’ve done a lot of homework in the last WP5.5 version of Gutenberg. It’s much less fiddly, it’s easier to navigate and move stuff around.

    I wasn’t a big fan eventually, but learned how to use it, but I’m becoming a fan now 🙂

    Hey, great to hear @lukascech! Any feature requests or improvements you’d like to see in future updates?

    Hey Mel,

    sure – I’m surprised that a scrolling lightbox is not default on the standard Gutenberg Gallery. Right now, when I click on a gallery thumb, lightbox opens a bigger version of the image and that’s it – a dead end. no left-right arrow, keyboard left&right arrows don’t do anything.

    I think it would make sense to have a full – scrolling lightbox on all galleries, where once a bigger image version is opened, the user can scroll between all the images in the lightbox.

    A Table of contents widget would be really handy too.

    And a big game changer would be the ability to display a grid of certain post types: post grid would be the main one, but why not make it work with all custom post types. Then you’ll be almost as good as more advanced page builders and could certainly fill in a much wider market (use case) share.

    Totally agree, I’d love to see a lightbox integration by default on image and gallery blocks. Looks like there was a GitHub issue at some point, but was closed: https://github.com/WordPress/gutenberg/issues/1453 Maybe that can be resurrected.

    A ToC block would also be great. I’ve seen a few plugins that do this already.

    This one’s in progress! There’s a “Query Block” created for the Full Site Editing project in Gutenberg: https://make.wordpress.org/design/handbook/focuses/full-site-editing/
