Last month we talked Gutenberg and many of you were *not* excited about the new post editor.
Some even said if it is integrated with core they will look for a new CMS. :grimacing:
With the release of WordPress 4.9.8 comes a callout asking users to “Try Gutenberg”.
It’s official. Gutenberg is now confirmed for delivery in version 5 of WordPress, it will be merged with core and blocks are the future of WordPress.
So, in this DOTW we follow-up:
1. Have you started testing or are you playing around with the new editor?
2. If so, did it break any styling or cause any conflicts?
3. Or, how long will you wait before making the move?
4. Bonus: If you absolutely hate Gutenberg and protest by leaving WordPress, what CMS will you choose? (Dark thought I know, you said it...not me)
Lots to chew on!
As for us, we’ll continue making the transition as seamless as possible – whether you’re an early adapter or you choose to hold out.
Want to try Gutenberg yourself before weighing in? You can sample the experience here. If you do update your site, make a backup and test before pushing to a live environment.
