Support » Plugin: Gutenberg » Promising, but there is room for improvement

  • I’m started to test on my blog, and I really like the block philosophy. Very clean and seems simple to me. However, Gutenberg cannot handle third-party plugins at the moment, like YOAST Seo, or other types. The image handling is a joke – cannot define exact size in pixels. When I want to combine with the text (to be embedded the photo into the text, for example to left), the blocks starts to act weirdly.
    I’m really into the Gutenberg, cause for the article writing and blogging is adding a more streamlined editor and feel. A little bit got the feeling like when the WordPress introduced the distraction free writing for the first time.
    Also, I suggest building a switcher with that we can switch back and forward between classic editor and Gutenberg editor. Many people using WordPress capabilities in a more serious way, maybe they need the classic editor.

    That’s great to hear you are starting to use Gutenberg on your blog.

    Over the next few months a lot more plugins will be working on getting ready for Gutenberg.

    Is the issue you are having with image handling only the defining the size in pixels or is there something else to it?

    Yes, exactly, defining the size in pixels is unavailable.
    For example, I write about two or more similar products in one blog post and I separate them with H2 headlines, writing some text and embed a picture. The pictures original size and dimensions are the same. But after embedding in I wanted to shrink the dimensions a little bit. But when I wanted to resize them to the same size (for the consistent look of the post) the resizer (by mouse dragging) not showing the pixels.
    Example post:

    So I have to switch back to the Classic Editor, to get the right size to every embedded picture.

    I have another issue is with the discussion settings. They are turned on when I first save a post. But after is published, and edited again (for a typo or to embed a link), after the Updating these options are automatically turning off… This is a little bit annoying. 🙁
