Support » Plugin: Disable Gutenberg » Useful plugin

  • Just, why?

    EDIT: I judged too fast, what this plugin does is explained in the description. I was impulsive in rating it 1 star and it’s not fair to the plugin developer, who took the time to answer me.

    My reason for rating it this way was to tell people it’s time to use Gutenberg, and we should not always go against new stuff, they’ve been well-though. I think Gutenberg is a very good tool (but you are not saying the contrary, and I was missing the point).

    The plugin does what is says it does. It’s used and liked by many. I’ll give it 5 star too.

    Thank you for your answer.

    Hi @spwebguy,

    Do you have an actual concern or reason for giving a 1-star review? I work hard developing and providing free plugins for the WP community, really sucks to get poor reviews without any reason.

    Also in case you are being sincere in asking “why” this plugin exists, it’s stated clearly on the plugin homepage under the section titled “Why?”. Here it is again copy/pasted FYI:

    “Gutenberg is a useful editor but sometimes you want to disable it for specific posts, pages, user roles, post types, or theme templates. Disable Gutenberg enables you to disable Gutenberg and replace it with the Classic Editor wherever you want. For example, lots of WordPress users already enjoy robust page-building functionality via one of the many great plugins like Composer or Elementor. So many options, no need to feel “locked in” to using Gutenberg!

    The Disable Gutenberg plugin is targeted at everyone who is not ready for the major changes brought by Gutenberg. Install Disable Gutenberg NOW to be ready for when Gutenberg is finally merged into core and released to the public (likely in WP 5.0). That way, your users and clients will experience the same awesome UX as before 😉”

    Plus I would add that over 400,000 users currently use this plugin, not to mention that 99% of the reviews are 5 stars, which means that the plugin is liked and appreciated.

    I hope that helps answer your question, if you actually were asking and not just being disrespectful/rude. Seriously, if there are any questions or help I can provide, please let me know.


    I have changed my review, read above please.

    Keep up the good work.
