Support » Plugin: Gutenberg » Serves no useful purpose…

  • …other than to frustrate.

    The Dashboard admin menu and Appearance > Menus still ‘work’ almost exactly as on day one, have basically become a UX nightmare, but ‘berg’ made it to the front of the line. So they tried to implement something that has been done so much better 100+ times over instead of updating core mechanics.

    Well, kudos to the authors of all those ‘disable’ Gutenberg plugins. You are my heroes.

  • Actually Gutenberg is groundwork for composer, widgets and menu editor updates. https://make.wordpress.org/core/2018/12/08/gutenberg-phase-2/

    @caercam that’s great! Does nothing for me tho as I use a Website builder (not a page builder, like Elementor), which makes a clunky tool like Gutenberg wasted space I ultimately have to disable. If it was wiz-bang cool, I would be all for it, but it’s light years from that. And very telling that plugins developed to disable it have glowing 5-star reviews and millions of installs!

    I really appreciate you linking to that page tho, where I see many comments are about fixing other stuff instead. @philclothier mentions,

    As a theme developer, the number 1 thing we receive support requests for is creating menus (especially to post categories). Anything which can be done to simplify that process will be awesome.

    Go figure!

    They need to update core features as others in that thread mentioned. Instead they just want to prove how disconnected they are from they’re user base.
