    Hello,
    Congratulations for your great SmartLine Lite theme.

    I’m having currently a couple of issues with it (I think) since my upgrade from WP 4.9.9 towards WP 5.0 – 5.0.3 and finally 5.1 few days ago, BUT only when I’m using Gutenberg.

    As I don’t really like Gutenberg, I have installed the Classic Editor plugin since my upgrade towards WP 5.0. Since, my default editor is Classic Editor / TinyMCE Advanced.

    For testing purpose, I have wrote a single article using Gutenberg (see this link). It was a real trouble doing that, not flexible at all. It’s much less convenient than the Classic editor.

    PB-1. Now using Gutenberg, I tried to put this article into the slider of my front – magazine page but with no success all. My “SLIDER” tag is not recognized at all by Gutenberg. And even when forcing SLIDER as a new tag, the result is always the same. This article is not present in my front – magazine page slider.
    Doing the same with the Classic editor is working always fine with all my articles wrote before and after WP 5.0.

    PB-2. Still with the same article, using Gutenberg to add a Button bloc, the scope of the possibilities seems limited by SmartLine.

    What do you think ? Are those issues due to SmartLine / Gutenberg or are they only linked to WP / Gutenberg ?

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you.

    Hello,
    I have made further tests but still the same issue with the post slider not working with WP 5.0 – 5.1 & Gutenberg.

    1. Reopening the above mentioned article written with WP 5.1 & Gutenberg, the SLIDER tag I have forced disappeared. And when typing S.L.I.D.E.R letter by letter, only the SL couple proposes already existing tags. BUT no SLIDER tag at all.

    2. So I have created a very simple new article with the following steps.
    – New article -> Enter a title -> Enter some text -> Enter the SLIDER tag which was immediately and well recognized -> Confirmed the tag entry -> Switched from Classic Editor to Gutenberg.
    – Checked the already tag(s) entered -> NOTHING -> And typing again S.L.I.D.E.R letter by letter, but only and again SL proposes already existing tags. BUT no SLIDER tag at all.

    So It’s clear there is somewhere an incompatibility between WP 5.1 + Gutenberg + SmartLine Lite 1.6. The question is where and why? What’s wrong? Is now the-my “SLIDER” tag a reserved word for the WP 5.x + Gutenberg system ?

    Since years my configuration is the following and has worked with no issue even with WP 4.9.9 (TinyMCE Advanced) + SmartLine Lite 1.6 (targeting WP 5.0):
    – SmartLine Lite -> Theme options -> Post Slider
    – Activate Post Slider with both lines checked
    – Tag name -> SLIDER
    – Hide tag in the tag cloud checked

    Thank you.

    Hello,
    After additional tests, I have found A solution.

    Changing the Tag name for the Post Slider is not better. Whatever the tag name is, the problem is always there.

    In fact, the Culprit is SmartLine Lite 1.6 which is not fully compatible with the Gutenberg editor of WordPress 5.0 – 5.1

    => MY solution was to -NOT- Hide tag in the tag cloud; i.e unchecked this line!
    Now my problem is fixed.

    Cheers

    Hi there,

    Thanks for letting me know, but unfortunately I’m not able to reconstruct this issue at the moment. The slider still works fine with WordPress 5.0 and Gutenberg on all my test sites.

    The Gutenberg Editor is only the new user interface for adding content, including tags. The slider works completely outside of the Editor, and the tag is directly fetched from the database. It does not matter if it is entered in the database with the Classic Editor or the Gutenberg Editor.

    However, there might be some other changes with WordPress 5.0 which might have caused this, but the Gutenberg Editor is not the issue

    Best,
    Thomas
