    I tried the Beta of Gutenberg and assumed there’s no way it would be released into the wild.

    But now it comes pre-packaged with WP5 (yes, we knew this) and YOU CAN’T TURN IT OFF unless you go into the PHP or install a 3rd party plugin.

    I realize UI issues can sometimes cause pain to users, but in the end are the right thing to do. NOT THE CASE WITH GUTENBERG.

    a) I can’t save pages and posts any more with the 2 page builders I really like. That’s not a UI issue, it just doesn’t work.
    b) The UI is unintuitive, unwieldy and makes me less efficient. I now have to do 3 mouse clicks for many things that used to require 1.

    I’m not trying to be harsh, but I don’t think it’s salvageable. Gutenberg needs to be relegated to the cellar with New Coke and Electric Scissors. Start from scratch using some of the existing page builders as inspiration. And first and foremost, DON’T. BREAK. EXISTING. SITES.
