Support » Plugin: Gutenberg » PLEASE don’t put this into core!!

  • I have been building with WordPress for many years, avoiding page builders at all cost for many reasons. I like that fact it has always been an option for those that may not know how to code, but this feels as though us real developers are having a big middle finger stuck up to us. Our clients enjoy the simplicity that WordPress has always been known for and sticking this in the core is removing that. As a hardcore WP developer, I beg of you.. PLEASE keep this as a plugin.

    As for backwards compatibility, I installed gutenberg on 2 of my staging sites and it has straight away broken basic functionality with only the minimum amount of plugins installed.

    Thanks for testing and reviewing the new editing experience. I would love to find out a little more if possible about what was broken and what plugins you had installed?

    I must say, I’m not interested at all in contributing to your Gutenberg fixes because I just don’t want it. I have a method of creating sites based on WordPress and this plugin totally goes against everything I have defended WordPress against in the past.

    WordPress isn’t for developers anymore. It’s for web designers that don’t want to code. I’m not saying they shouldn’t be catered for but give us all the option rather than forcing us into this.

    This is such a Microsoft move. Just know I won’t be helping to increase that 30% of sites across the internet running WordPress. If anything, I’ll be quite happy to move them on to another CMS just to NOT be on WordPress anymore.
