    Gutenburg

    We've been testing it and it's going to be a cluster of disaster when they make it the core in Wordpress the next version, and that includes your existing site or sites. It's going to replace the Classic Editor as the core editor.

    When we installed it on some test sites we made to test it on, we lost the images and most of the text and had a lot of white pages with nothing on them. It also broke a lot of the plugins and they stopped working.

    There are fixes for it, we installed them and got our test sites back but this needs doing before Wordpress does it's next upgrade.

    I suggest you make yourself a test site and see how it works for you.

    Here are over 800 negative reviews about it on Wordpress, with 1000's more across the web, and the developers are not listening.

    Two of our developers made honest reviews. Their reviews got deleted and they got blocked from the Wordpress forums. A developer friend of ours made an honest post and also just mentioned this would probably cost her to lose her business. They deleted her review and blocked her from the WP forums also.

    I haven't played with it yet but was a little worried that the issues you talked about would create issues. I see the 1 and 2 star ratings number more than double the 4 and 5 star ratings. I have to wonder what that ratio would be if negative reviews were not deleted.

    There is an old saying "If it ain't broke, don't fix it"

    We've talked to many developers about Gutenburg and WP. They all say, "if it ain't broke, which it isn't. leave it alone and just make Gutenburg a stand alone plugin for anyone that wants to use it. Don't mess with the core of WP that's made it as successful as it is. We all think that WP is headed down a rocky road like they're not expecting and could be the downhill slide for them

    They don't seem to be listening to us. It was supposed to be released this November but I read where it's been pushed back several months.

    We've got 3 new business sites to get started on this week to be in WP. The decision was made this afternoon to build 1 in Joomla and 2 in Drupal, not WP.

    I personally think if you use Wordpress, you need to take this Gutenburg upgrade seriously and start preparing for it. It's not going away.

    A good read for you and a plugin concerning Gutenberg.

    A good read including comments

    A Disable Gutenrburg plugin. Be sure to read the developers comments about it, especially in the reviews.

    If anyone wants to play it safe there is a wordpress plug in called WP Staging that allows you to set up a staging site where you can install Gutenburg on the staging site so you can test it out without messing up your main sites.

    Wordpress version 5.0 was released yesterday with Gutenberg as the core.

    If you upgrade to 5.0, or it automatically upgraded and wrecked your site, here is a website with a possible fix to get it back working for you.

    It seems Gutenberg is crashing all over the world. We've been talking to other developers this week and it's costing people their businesses, especially woocommerce sites.

    It also seems Wallenburg and his hand picked Gutenberg developers are turning their heads and either not listening or don't want to listen to what could be the downfall of Wordpress.

    They seem to be avoiding the Gutenberg support forum and the reviews on Gutenberg and leaving people out to dry. It seems maybe they have no answers for the many people having serious issues with their piece of trash called...Gutenberg.
