Support » Plugin: Gutenberg » This should never have been released.

  • If Gutenberg becomes the standard for WordPress, I will switch to another CMS, and I think the company I work for will do the same.

    The “block” system wrecks any sort of organization to people who know anything about coding. If you can’t write HTML, then use a page builder. The blocks smash all the existing code into a little box that ignores any sort of organizational spacing, and wastes half of my browsers screen.

    Even the beta shouldn’t have been released yet. Half the time the blocks show “an unknown error occurred”, and the preview button has never once worked properly. Don’t even try to use a bracket, because Gutenberg is going to make the assumption that your trying to add a shortcode. Embedded URLs never seem to work.

    I understand that this is supposed to make life easier for people without experience in web development, but the rest of us who depend on a reliable text editor are getting screwed over with Gutenberg. I hope someone comes to the realization that this is trash before it’s forced upon us and ruins the steady workflow of thousands of developers, all for “simplification” of a system that’s not even broken.

    Not even to mention that this push of Gutenberg will likely wreck thousands of sites with compatibility issues. WordPress is going to take a big hit with this one.

    Firstly, thanks for taking time to leave a review. Just incase you don’t know there is the https://wordpress.org/plugins/classic-editor/ plugin as an option on day one, this will allow you to keep the old experience.

    I would like to dig a little more into your “unknown error” message. You absolutely should not be getting that all the time. Are you using Gutenberg with any other plugins or a non default theme?
