• The Gutenberg editor reminds me of the Medium writing experience which is a good thing as long as the 5.0 update doesn’t break existing content…

    I have a site on GoDaddy and they use blocks. I look forward to see how WordPress will do it. Thanks, Marion, as always, you give very good information.

    Upgrade is always promising and sometimes also scare us. Our experience with the last 4.9 was not positive, so let us see if 5.0 will be easy and a milestone release in WordPress.

    Hi Marion,
    Thanks so much for sharing this great information about WordPres 5.0 ‘Gutenberg’, think it will change a lot the way we use to work on our websites!
    I’ll wait for it when is ready, will be interesting to work on it.

    Marion, thanks very much for this information. I like the sound of WordPress 5.0 ‘Gutenberg’ and I’m looking forward to when it is available.

    The idea of working in blocks, and dragging images from the computer directly into posts appeals greatly. Also inserting HTML code via a block sounds great too.

    I imagine the block features will be time saving in respect to preparing content for our affiliate sites. Or any websites, for that matter.

    No doubt, there will be a learning curve but Gutenberg sounds to be exciting and I’m going to test drive it on my Test website. I will let you know how the test goes.

  • Dieter says:

    Wow this looks like an amazing major upgrade for WordPress, looking forward to get hold of it. Are you part of the pre-release program? We just recently upgraded to 4.9 which had a couple of interesting updates.

    • Marion says:

      Although I’m not officially part of the WordPress team I’m test-driving Gutenberg as the new releases come in. Part of the test-driving is the Gutenberg plugin. Because of the volatile nature of the testing environment it’s strongly advised to only do it on a test website, not a live site.

  • Heidi says:

    Wow, that is interesting! The benefits of blocks, rearranging them freely etc. were the reason why I have AVADA theme on all my worpress sites, because there this wonderful editing tools are working for quite a while. with the update I envision some major glitches between the two systems – but maybe not. Avada is normally quite quick in responding to wordpress update.
    The question will be if, then, I would still need the theme or not. I am curious!
    Thanks for the info, Marion!
