Support » Plugin: Gutenberg » Leaving WordPress after 10 years

  • Gutenberg is a disaster for users and developers. Totally undoes all of the versatility which WordPress has been revered for. WordPress is now strictly a blogging engine. Pretty sad to see a great product which I’ve put 10 years of professional work into as a developer get destroyed this way. I use WordPress for a great diversity of projects, and until Gutenberg it has been great for that. The block editor is should be a plugin, not shipped with the core. It does not fit the majority of use cases. Pretty pissed that I have to rebuild my entire development workflow because of this.

    I am completely with you and I was in the same situation. Than I found out that there is a fork of WP, which I switched to and I am really happy about.

    Correct, that is the one I use. But I do not post the name of it because the last times I did, my account here was banned and my posts deleted…

    Maybe the truth …

    how pathetic of you to delete comments just because they touch your inner ego feelings and tell the truth about your current censorship policy

    It’s very annoying that the majority from the WordPress community doesn’t want to use Gutenberg and still, they shipped it as the main editor. The WordPress core team should immediately stop the development of Gutenberg and concentrate on making the application more secure and robust.

    Agree. What I do not understand is how the WP team working on Gutenberg have not yet got the very clear message to drop it. I am thinking that there must be a few WP Gutenberg developers on an ego trip …

    Or at least have in the core the ability to disable it without needing the plugin “Disable Gutenberg”.

    I mean really, why is it not as simple as give WP user the option built into WP. People then have the very easy choice.
