Support » Plugin: Gutenberg » Please no!

  • My clients will never learn how to use it. Myself had problems with it, totally useless thing. Every time i am discuss with clients the WordPress i declare, how easy is edit the content, like in Word. I hope you will never cut the classic Wysiwyg editor and his functionalities. This is step back from being WordPress simple content editor.

    First, thanks for testing Gutenberg. It’s worth adding that the classic editor isn’t going anywhere you can use it with the classic editor plugin still: even once WordPress 5.0 has shipped. That said, what features in your testing do you think would be useful for your clients?

    WordPress is great, that it is simple content editor. Now, Gutenberg is layout/template editor. I can create the layouts/templates by myself. If the classic wysiwyg editor remains and will be fully compatible, with other plugins, than OK. I still think this layout/template editor Gutenberg should be as add-on, not core setting for text editing. Maybe will be good for copy/paste developers, but if simple user want simple content editor, which he knows from Word, he will be totally confused with this Gutenberg. I create websites for 18 years, work with WordPress near 10 years, and this Gutenberg was pretty shock for me. Something, about many real (html, php, jquery… coders) don’t care, because they want to create their code and layouts. So none features will be usefull. They just want oopen the wysiwyg and change the text, they don’t care about drag&drop layouts creating.
