Support » Plugin: Gutenberg » Not so good, I’m afraid

  • Hello,
    I needed to update a page for a new site I have been working on and encountered the Gutenberg editor, not such a good experience I have to say, it took be six times as long to update this page as it would have done in the past with the old editor, to me it seems very un-intuitive actually slowing down productivity greatly, random blocks appearing in the wrong places, unnecessary code additions in fact it took me back to the days when I first started creating websites and the only options were Microsoft Front Page or Adobe Dreamweaver both very popular editors at the time for those who like to drag blocks about regardless of the underlying code complications which resembled a mess of spaghetti code, being a coder at heart, I find the Gutenberg editor a step backwards for WordPress.

    The only positive note about the whole experience is that I was able to find this thread which pointed me in the direction of the Classic Editor plugin which I have now installed.

    I think perhaps that the Gutenberg Editor should be the plugin and the Classic Editor should be in the main WordPress core, I can understand why the Classic Editor Plugin has been downloaded so many times.

    More modern is not necessarily a good thing, newer is not always better – especially not in this case.
