Support » Plugin: Gutenberg » Simply Awful

  • The Gutenberg editor is an unnecessary idea. The concept of being able to put things together in blocks is not a bad one, but the Classic Editor really does the trick, and Gutenberg is trying to solve a problem that does not exist.

    And it solves that problem very badly. The code editor on Gutenberg is far inferior to that on the classic editor.

    I have tried it on three of my most popular sites. I have given it a few weeks. But it is simply awful. When I asked the question on both Facebook and MeWe about it, I got the unanimous response from developers that no one likes it, and we were all returning to the classic editor.

    Don’t get me wrong – there are things the classic editor needs to address. I try to get my themes’ styles integrated into the editor, but it would be easy for WordPress to implement that sort of feature by default, which would help our clients. But Gutenberg was a wrong direction, to solve a problem that did not exist.

    If I could give No Stars, then I would.
