Support » Plugin: Gutenberg » Such a useless mess.

  • I might be adding issues here as I find them.

    One major issue is that what I see on the editor is not what displays on the live page. Is it too much to ask for an editor that does what you want?
    I cannot resize images. They fill the content section as it is selected and refuse to get smaller to match everything else. When choosing thumbnail it instead causes the image to keep its size and stretch to bad quality. Is this a bug?
    I can’t crop images. What is the point of the crop button? It doesn’t do anything. I even looked up tutorials on how to use it and the function would never apply in any situation I could think of.
    It is very hard to edit anything after content has been created. All of these popups and overlays are a headache and cover content.
    Moving blocks manually next to or above other blocks doesn’t work. There are only 2 types of content blocks that allow for drag and drop as intended.
    Why is there no vertical align? You seriously call this a new and improved editor and there is no vertical align on anything? I had to install a plugin just to add in functions that were missing. This is so unacceptable.
    I had more features in the old editor and they were not all hidden.
    Deleting a block causes junk code to be added every time and sometimes it cannot be removed without screwing up the rest of my content. When I delete something I expect it to be 100% gone. Code and everything!
    Copying content in the code editor from one block to another causes all blocks to break despite the code structure has not been broken in any way. I have been using html for years and I know how to move code around.
    What happened to html? All blocks are created using a sudo code that is a new language on their own and it is not compatible with proper html. Meaning it is no longer possible to next blocks into other blocks without breaking everything.
    Why does it create a new block when I go to select content? Whenever I try to edit existing content or I click out of a block and try to click on it again, a new block creates itself. Why is there a 99% new block creation space wherever you click and a 1% editing space? This problem is more magnified when you need to make a new block and deselect it. Now it’s lost to the code because you can no longer select it again.
    Viewing revision content is no longer an option. It’s been completely replaced with a back button to revert changes. When I spent an hour trying to fix something and then finding out that wasn’t going to work, I spend a good 10 minutes hitting the back button until all of my changes were reverted.

    Sorry you are running into so many issues. 🙁

    One major issue is that what I see on the editor is not what displays on the live page.

    Could you share what is displaying differently? Sometimes it can be a problem between the editor and the theme.

    I can’t crop images. What is the point of the crop button? It doesn’t do anything.

    You can’t crop them because the button doesn’t work or because once you finish cropping it still looks the same?

    All of these popups and overlays are a headache and cover content.

    If the inline toolbars get in the way you might want to enable the “Top Toolbar” setting from the ellipsis menu at the top right of the editor. It relocates the editing toolbar to a fixed position in the header area.

    Why is there no vertical align?

    Vertical align is present in some contexts — like within column blocks.

    I had more features in the old editor and they were not all hidden.

    What features did you have before that are missing?

    When I delete something I expect it to be 100% gone. Code and everything!

    You and me both! When a block is removed all of its code disappears from the page. Could you share some steps that fail for you so I can try to replicate?

    Copying content in the code editor from one block to another causes all blocks to break despite the code structure has not been broken in any way.

    Are you attempting to copy entire blocks or parts of blocks?

    All blocks are created using a sudo code that is a new language on their own and it is not compatible with proper html.

    All the content the editor creates is indeed HTML. If you want to write freeform HTML you can use the HTML block for it which preserves your input as is.

    Meaning it is no longer possible to next blocks into other blocks without breaking everything.

    Not all blocks support nested blocks — a group, cover, or column do.

    Why is there a 99% new block creation space wherever you click and a 1% editing space?

    Are you referring to the space gap between blocks?

    Viewing revision content is no longer an option.

    You should be able to continue using revisions just as before. Can you give me some more info on what is happening that seems off?

    Thanks for the feedback.
