Gutenberg

Description

“Gutenberg” is a codename for a whole new paradigm in WordPress site building and publishing, that aims to revolutionize the entire publishing experience as much as Gutenberg did the printed word. Right now, the project is in the first phase of a four-phase process that will touch every piece of WordPress — Editing, Customization, Collaboration, and Multilingual — and is focused on a new editing experience, the block editor.

The block editor introduces a modular approach to pages and posts: each piece of content in the editor, from a paragraph to an image gallery to a headline, is its own block. And just like physical blocks, WordPress blocks can added, arranged, and rearranged, allowing WordPress users to create media-rich pages in a visually intuitive way — and without work-arounds like shortcodes or custom HTML.

The block editor first became available in December 2018, and we’re still hard at work refining the experience, creating more and better blocks, and laying the groundwork for the next three phases of work. The Gutenberg plugin gives you the latest version of the block editor so you can join us in testing bleeding-edge features, start playing with blocks, and maybe get inspired to build your own.

FAQ

How can I send feedback or get help with a bug?

We’d love to hear your bug reports, feature suggestions and any other feedback! Please head over to the GitHub issues page to search for existing issues or open a new one. While we’ll try to triage issues reported here on the plugin forum, you’ll get a faster response (and reduce duplication of effort) by keeping everything centralized in the GitHub repository.

Whoever decided that forcing this stupid editor on everyone by default on WordPress releases should be removed from WP team. This is like a dictatorship and people and developers will leave WP for other platforms as a result. Yes you can disable it and yes you can add Classic Editor plugin. But not it does not take away the fact that WP is forcing this on millions of their users.

Gutenberg uses the button classes and the right fonts. The problem with Elementor and Co is that you can customize everything an then it looks off. Here the global settings apply. If theres a slider with multiple reviews global styles should apply each slide should look similar and also on another page. I think Gutenberg will accomplish such comfort!

what fukwit came up with gutenberg and what idiot thought wordpress needed to be based entirely around blocks. It's hard watching a once wonderful wordpress, which I have used for ten plus years, being downgraded and destroyed these past couple of years by a few bubble-living morons.

I was initially skeptical but I'm fully onboard now. Every release improves so much. Fairly easy to build out really sophisticated interfaces for authors. Most exciting time to be working in WP in years.
