The UI is confusing and lacks visual signposting.
- Over-reliance on hover effects, so have to wave mouse around to understand the block structure.. I can see why somebody felt the need to create a plugin to show the page hierarchy.
- No visual indication of the currently active area. Too easy to add a new block in the wrong place
- Separation of a structured piece of text into multiple blocks (eg heading, para, list, para) makes it harder than necessary to move the whole text around.
Other page builders (eg Elementor & Brizy) have much better signposting. People like my clients who only update their pages every few weeks will find Gutenberg tedious to use. (And don’t say RTFM – updating the website is only a part-time, infrequent activity for them.)
I definitely will not be recommending Gutenberg to existing or new clients.
Will the Classic editor be supported for the long term?
