Support » Plugin: Gutenberg » Terrible, the end of WordPress as serious CMS, back to 90:s blog tool

  • We where SO expecting something better then the old TinyMCE model, but in this state of Gutenberg development, it is not even worth to make a constructive review.

    The most important aspect is that this “editor” is a new WP backend interface, moving away from a CMS, back to a blog tool.

    We really really really hope this never gonna be part of the WordPress Core. We need a replacement for the TinyMCE, not a new “customizer” API. Have mercy, please.

  • Everyone at our Agency are speechless. We have been waiting for “checking out” Gutenberg until we can give it a nice try – for the bugs and development point of view.

    We all agree that the lack of WordPress is the TinyMCE, and the core development approach of WP has been really OK last 7 years. But any talk of implementing Gutenberg into WP is just unbelivable…

    We love changes! We even love post-formats (!) and use them a lot in our applications, using WP as “machine”. At the same token, everything has to be possible to administrate and anchored to customers. You dont change the color blue for links into red. To make a “block interface” to write content, pushes ordinary client users to move away from standards.

    But the worst part is the javascript API… Empty p-tags (or br) should never be allowed as “making space”… or “custom sizes” WITHIN document edit/ copyright, leaves a MESS in responsive layout… etc etc . Crying here….

    With this new Gutenberg I have issues:

    * Inserting links
    * Inserting slides
    * Scrolling down while editing an extended paragraph, I have to frequently use the 3 scrollbars just to move up and down on the page
    * Hard to find the link of the page/post is created
    * Embedded videos do not display (just the code)
    * I frequently lose sight of the toolbars
