Support » Plugin: Gutenberg » Terrible! You should look at apple news submissions system for inspiration.

  • This is just really awful. I expected it to be a upgrade to the editor. Perhaps nice, easy and intuitive like apple news submissions. But nothing like it, Gutenberg is really bad when it comes to user experience. Just a simple task like marking text (hold down button and drag the marker) becomes tricky with all the menus and submenues and icons and buttons that is getting in the way.
    I struggle to say anything positive about it.
    The whole box system is not great. What WP needs is a editor like the one in Apple news, but with possibility to use/allow more advanced features if the contributor is more advanced. Really ask yourself, what is the most basic way to create a post/article?
    Just make it simple. Allow users a header image (that is the featured image as well), Title above/under or on top of the image, and then make simple tools to add text and images in-between the text. Allow the users to choose if images should be in a gallery or single when they are uploading.
    The other thing is having the box menu on the right side where it now is hiding all the other important tools, such as adding tags.
    WP “out of the box” is and should stay a blog tool? Boxing the various content types in is not an improvement, just a lot less flexible.
