Support » Plugin: Gutenberg » Slow and lacking basic features

  • Gutenberg needs beta testing. It’s nowhere near ready for production. Half an hour of testing netted many problems prevented us moving even a single page to the block editor.

    Case in point: changing the color of a word or two in a paragraph block requires editing HTML. How retro.

    And good luck reordering blocks if there’s a classic block and online image block present. The editor shoots off your screen and prevents interaction.

    Click on a classic block and the block will jump halfway down the page, probably causing at least one unintentional click by frustrating motor memories.

    Gutenberg is an interesting but slow, limited, inefficient and unpolished concept piece at this point and not recommended in its current iteration.

    Icing on the cake: since the 5.0.2 update every Gutenberg-infected page on our test site is showing the popular “This block has encountered an error and cannot be previewed” error.
