Support » Plugin: Gutenberg » Very sad reviews

  • First I find Gutenberg really great. I was about to leave it and come back to a hard coded site… For a site that looks like a blog… I haven’t tried it many times but what a good surprise for someone who doesn’t like to install and maintain a long list of plugins! It’s going the way WP would have gone if it doesn’t have the success we’re all aware.

    And sorry if I upset some of you but I’m a bit confused by many reviews I
    have read. Are people just so conservative ?

    I know I’m not dev in any way. And I write this review on a personal and non professional mind. But I think Gutenberg makes the web easier for people who don’t have time and|or coding skills. It offers free opportunities for everyone to build articles and pages, and to make these more customs. A little step to put the web in the hands of people. Like the intent the web founders and earliers had.

    Come on, you have cried when the XHTML has arrived, and then it was the ie6 compability, and after the mobile web, and the responsive and the adaptative, and now the conversational assistants. You’ve made it, Gutenberg won’t be a problem.

    And to finish, I hope I hadn’t made to many mistakes but my french is fine.

  • Bonjour Jean,

    It’s not quite that users are conservative. People have been using WordPress in many varied ways for years with tools developed for particular use case and workflows that the current editor is able to cater for. Gutenberg has its merits but at this early stage can’t cater for the same things.

    Because of the diversity many who like Gutenberg may not appreciate the difficulties it poses for many developers, users and clients. The upshot is that is is and will cause a lot of headaches and to not acknowledge this is very frustrating for thot user-base.

    I run so many websites on WordPress foundation. They are all different, they use different themes, some with special design and they contain a diversity of plugin’s. Gutenberg works fine with everything?

    @nyhetspalatset i think wp developers are more concerned about this than all of us.

    I’m pretty sure they know how wp works better than us 🙂

    Thanks for your answers (so I’m not so sad, but still…) and for highlighting these arguments. Don’t blame me, I understand your situation, but here’s a question. For who WP is made: clients, developers, visitors, … ? There’s not one and only answer and I won’t teach you any lesson. I just Wish you smart (but not hard) work
