    6 Months ago I gave my initial thoughts. Then again & again. Reading & following everything I could find the past 5 months about Gutenberg made me only feel one thing, sick. The great transition started, it sucks. I loved wordpress, but I’m breaking up with her now for good after a decade. Goodbye.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review. Feedback matters so much to this project, as do the people like you helping test this before it’s merge proposal.

    You raise a great point, sometimes just trying something is really important – glad you did.

    That’s great news to hear about how things went testing against your nearly finished theme. Feedback like that is what we need.

    I look forward to hearing some more feedback from you and encourage you to share it.

    I’ve changed my mind, I don’t like it tbo. That’s only my personal opinion and I know I cannot change the world. It is fine for folks who blogs & so on that never design a theme from scratch, but developers. Most folks don’t even know what the basic loop is, they only write, style & make beautiful title, text & image layouts, then they post it. They don’t bother with the countless hours of work behind the scenes. Using WordPress’s own themes is all well with this changes, but custom themes?

    On pages, Classic Editor & Gutenberg Editor are available. Say for instance Gutenberg gets pushed mandatory, how will the page template get set.

    Working with my theme at the moment and there is no way of setting page template in Gutenberg.

    Meta Boxes, will it be only for Posts excluding Custom Posts? I’ve read so many tickets already and still don’t know.

    Sorry for the rant. My reason for feeling this way is because I need to keep all this in mind whilst creating. It’s work being done & I don’t even know if it will work in the time coming. I will however keep looking at this as it’s seems I do not have a choice.

    In the end everybody will be able to do this, I get that. What is the point of WordPress.org, the Codex, people taking a lot of living time off learning. This changes, all-in-all is not good for me personally.
