Support » Plugin: Gutenberg » WP not meant to mix CONTENT and DESIGN/LAYOUT

    There is no need for a new editor with page design capability, because the concept of WordPress is to strictly separate CONTENT from DESIGN/LAYOUT.

    Therefore, the themes with various degrees of layout and design capabilities and the page builders were created to turn CONTENT entered at the front end into a DESIGN/LAYOUT set up at the backend by the themes and/or page builders.

    Gutenberg is just disturbing this concept. I am using Divi and lots of us have been waiting for their Theme builder to be released, which is catching up to other page builders in that regard. It is supposed to enable us to create page and post template layouts in Divi – but now it seems that Gutenberg templates are starting to become the new kid on the block – in direct contrast to this concept of page builders using their superior power to create these templates. This is just in direct competition to all page builders that are WAY more advanced. It’s not the job of a front-end content editor to design and layout a page or post.

    This is all going into the WRONG direction and has not been thought through.
