Support » Plugin: Gutenberg » The Gutenberg editor is a joke

    It is so damn frustrating. I am wondering who could possibly be the target audience of this editor? Or like in the infamous “Futurama” series, “there is no target audience! Only targets…!” (evil laugh follows). Making a default is a joke. Dear wordpress guys, please, please remove that thing. We are not quite in the Idiocracy epoch yet. Now the #1 trending plugin is a plugin that simply disables this nonsense.

    Could you please describe what makes Gutenberg frustrating for you to use?

    Thanks a lot

    Hi Michael,

    Here are the points I didn’t like about the editor:
    – “block editing” concept in general works for site builders like SquareSpace, WiX, etc. This was the inspiration, as of my understanding.. For a more complex scenarios, these primitive blocks become nightmare, because site design in this case is dictated by theme, and trying to mess with theme using blocks ends in a broken site..
    – I understand the block editor may be good for mobile usage; but I don’t really believe that anybody in sane set of mind would go and start building a website using a mobile device.
    – The blocks sparse design simply occupies way too much space (probably because of mobile), not leaving anything for the content..
    – keyboard support is quite poor.
    – user interface when most of blocks types are hidden, and you have to look for them.
    – many extensions and themes that provide plug-ins for the classic editor are broken.

    I would really appreciated if you provided this editor as a (non-default) option. But forcing all existing users to this hipster’s toy.. Well, I can’t support that.

    Kind regards
    Nikolay

    “Word”press, not “block”press its also simple than that… As publisher we want publish blog post easyly, not have to think where iwill put my block and which text inside each time i wrote 2 sentence.

    It take more time to do and also far better page builder exists.
