Project In Gutenberg

“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.

I used a good app before, but now I cannot edit my pages any more. This garbage is make unusable my whole site!
When i edit any post, page or anything in my site, when i begin the save process, this app make double anything..double rows, double chars…

Why can’t i full uninstall this? And why we need to install? Why? This is nonsense! I’m very angry! I worked months on my site and now the whole site is like a garbage…THANK YOU! ????

If i downgrade the whole site to an earlyer version, all the other plugins is broken becouse this plugin is edited somehow any plugins….now i and my cliens cannot see a normal website, just a garbage. Just full of garabage.

Please throw out this from the next WordPress version!

I wish I could do a zero star, 1 star is a lie, 1 star denotes it’s almost worthy. It’s not.

It’s ruined WordPress, which previously was easy to use.
Now I spend too much time trying to show clients how to use a terrible editor.

It’s not logical, it’s almost designed to be as complex as possible.

Thankfully classic editor to the rescue for older sites, meantime I’ve ventured into site builders like Beaver Builder/Elementor who have rescued WordPress in my opinion.

What a mess.

No, WordPress; no, Matt. You all totally missed the boat on this one. You made this gutenberg mess for yourselves, not for your end users. None of us asked for any type of block editor. For those of us who operate and/or create content, we want a simple, easy to use interface…which you have in what you now call your “classic editor.” It’s free of distraction, and is easy for most anyone to use.

Why does my writing staff need to be working with these blocks? They don’t. They complain about it. Stuff “splits up” when they click in the wrong place, or put a carriage return where it doesn’t belong. Hmmm, interesting, in the past they could simply type in the post, paste in a photo and the writing was done. Classic Editor is now a network-activated plugin on all of my WP sites.

Let me put it this way. Microsoft Word is like the classic WordPress–you open it, you type your document, done. Microsoft Publisher is like gutenberg–you put small things in blocks to make them look pretty on a page. These are two different tools; both work well, yet I would never use Publisher to publish anything extensive. Basically, gutenberg is forcing us to do things in small, confusing bites rather than just letting us write. It stifles creativity; it distracts the thought process.

Someone needs to rethink this. The Classic Editor is only being supported through 2022; good luck with that, as someone will either fork WordPress and return it to the way it needs to be, or people will leave WP in droves for something more intuitive with less clutter and distraction. Kiss your user base goodbye.

TL;DR? We tried it, we disliked it. It’s a complete and dismal failure. I uninstalled the plugin, of course. But we really need a way to get rid of it entirely from WP 5.0 onward. It will kill WordPress in the end. Keep it as a plugin so the very few users out there who think it is a good thing (it’s not) can continue using it, but the vast majority of users who see it as crippling to the creative process can not have it shoved in their faces every time they open the Dashboard.

I build websites constantly in wordpress and this mandatory forcing of the new editor has broken my process. Make it optional, it still isn’t as powerful as many third party builders like WP bakery and has added days of dev time to my latest project. Please please think about how you are going to fix this for the people who use your product the most.

Thanks for messing everything up! I was not asked, and I did not agree, to be part of beta testing your incredibly flawed program!

1. Many things are now hidden and you’ve added more clicks to do the same thing (e.g., switch between wysiwig and code view). WHY?

2. Now between saves, extra spaces get added on the page and I have to keep deleting them.

3. All of a sudden, the “add link” box gets stuck on the page and I can’t make the “open on different page” button work.

4. The “upload media” box very often shows an error and won’t upload anything. I’ve tried different browsers, clearing casche, etc. etc. Have to log out completely and start over.

And so many other things. Did you never hear of fully testing something before dumping it on the market! All you have succeeded in doing is wasting a LOT of my time. I do NOT appreciate it–and it is clear that you don’t really care.

“Wonderful world of blocks” my foot!

This is not about the end of the world; it is about wasting my time. And I’ve wasted a LOT of time with this new so-called wonderful new version.

It is very rare when I write a review, but really guys, improve the plugin, do a user testing to see what happens, the most annoying thing is when you work with a blog and have some empty space you must eliminate in several steps because each paragraph becomes a block.
Do not separate each paragraph in a different block is very annoying.

For those who continue to give one star reviews to the new editor because it either breaks your site, is totally different, too many problems, too long to learn, or you just dont like it – I say please take a moment and recognize that not only is this a full codebase rebuild, but you also have the ability to stay within the realm of the Classic Editor until 2022. That’s pretty incredible to be able to do that. Furthermore, you have enjoyed an incredible management system whose original codebase effectively goes back to 2008.

Gutenberg is the future. I already have teams and clients using it and *wanting* to use it. We are already building custom blocks and plugins that support frameworks we use for our sites, that honestly, we were not inspired to do with the old system.

Welcome to the new.

It feels like I’ve been using this Editor for nearly a year, and surprisingly I still don’t like it. God, is this freaking project some kind of star on the dark-side of the open source world? Fixing bug just isn’t going to help, this editor is not handy at the first place.????

Hate it, the whole thing with WP5 now feels highly unintuitive and challenging.

Creating pages and posts is a PITA, and stuff that was tried, tested and proven, and that people were comfortable and happy with is thrown out of the window, requiring a manual reset back to the old style editors.

I have not yet had one single user or person tell me they like it. It reminds me of all those requests I used to get to install Chrome and disable IE as the default browser…because it’s a horrible experience.

Is this even an update?
You just confuse people, developers and writers.

Do you want to kill wordpress? JUST STOP!

I hate this piece o crap. Remove it from the new wordpress. It just ruined my new website. I wasted about two hours to understand that Gutenberg is a poison. The worst addition to WordPress for the last 5 years.

Show us the man behind the so called “Gutenberg”. The most silly person to ever suggest the idea. We should bring back the Lynching.

Since i heard from the Gutenberg Editor i was not fascinated by the idea to implement something like an editor framework expansion set to achieve a new level of editing Content on a CMS like System ????

The hole thing should be done by a plugin creator and not by wordPress core team… in my opinion… the language implementation in the core should be ABSOLUTE PRIORY >>>> 1 <<<<
and not a fancy new way to edit content wich has no change effect to the WordPress Project than maybe a advertising effect ?! Useless in my opinion since it has been released in a VERY BETA STAUTS (i cannot call it perfect because more than two or three columns results in many bugs and concept problems)

I never wrote a negative comment on WordPress
I’m a developer in Coding Custom WordPress Themes/Plugins for Business Clients
I maynly develop business/corporate sites, a view times i had a client project where i coded a realy portal like page in wordpress or also a shop/catalog system ????

this is only my personal opinion ????

I am so excited to have met the new Gutenberg editor. I said ‘Hello’, spent the evening playing with it and used the blocks to build an awesome skyscraper made up of paragraphs, quotes and image galleries.

I love how various buttons and icons seem to randomly flash at you when you move your cursor around the screen. It’s challenging and fun and feels like it is working my brain – keeping me on my toes, like solving a puzzle – I love puzzles.
Another fun thing to do is randomly click around and watch with amazement at the frenzy of popups ready to jump out of the screen at you.

The flexibility that the Gutenberg editor offers is practically unlimited. The tools enabled me to design some algorithms to create a black hole image.

I especially love how the Gutenberg editor detects when you are typing too fast, and uses a lag feature that throttles my speed down to 30 words per minute. I always felt that typing 70-80 words per minute was too fast, so I am pleased.

There are way too many impressive things to list why I truly love Gutenberg, but I will stop as I am keen to hear what others have to say. Feel free to share your thoughts on why you love the new editor.

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.

As a long time WordPress developer I am horrified that this non-intuitive, user unfriendly, non-improvement was ever allowed to see the light of day. I noted it had horrible reviews before being added to WP as the new editor and figured it would die a natural death, but they went ahead and launched it into millions (hundreds of millions?) of working WordPress installs anyway. Who thought forcing a poorly reviewed editor on 12 years worth of successful site users was a smart idea?

I will allow that the classic editor was in sore need of some improvements, and I have recently started using Elementor for my more complex sites, but after trying it out I knew I would never use this editor for any reason, much less foist it on my clients.

Over two million installs of the classic editor at this writing. Get a clue WordPress. This needs to go. At the very least make it an option rather than an integral part of WP. Please.

I guess this is a try to make WP more user friendly to random bloggers but for us who want to run online business this update is the worst so far. Content writers take more time to create posts and there is no consistency on the site how things look. Luckily there is a plugin to enable the classic editor and use WordPress for a CMS. For which it still is great.

I came back to WP after an extended break, updated site, theme broken, and come to find out that “Gutenberg” is now the default post & page editor in WP.

Politely put: my mind is blown! This is beyond terrible.

If this was in WP in the early days, it would have never gotten off the ground.

This is the equivalent of using a MS Zune with Windows 10 UI, hide everything that you need, try to do something, you can’t see what it is doing, what it shows in the editor does not render properly on screen … default theme, simple post, one small photo, three times it published the photo at half width relative to the height, simple line breaks and paragraphs, 2/3 of them removed, … WTF?!

In all my life and first using a computer ~40 years ago I have never seen such an abomination and text mangling.

I literally have NO idea how in the world this got elevated to the default editor. It should not have gone beyond alpha or beta.

Not having traditional UI elements in a text editor is just bonkers.

And, you are putting the name Gutenberg to shame. I can actually set letter type and print the old fashioned way faster than I can make a simple post in WP and get the result with a bit of basic markup the way I intended!!!

I simply have nothing positive to say about the implementation and execution; despite the fact that I can from a technical aspect see what the goal was. Except that it was not necessary and should have been an opt-in. Not a default. If somebody with 30 years of computer experience can’t work this thing … how is an average user who may give posting abilities supposed to use it properly? If you need a new manual to put some text on a blog or site. It is a FAIL.

Rant over.

I am a professional developer and Gutenburg has been a horrendous experience. It is elementary, it is limiting, it is made for non-tech people. Isn’t that what wordpress.com is for? This addition is not a welcomed feature. It should be an optional plugin only!!!!! PLEASE remove it and make it optional. I know there are workarounds to disable it and I will try that next but I don’t want it included at all. I don’t even know where to begin with explaining my frustrations with it…. it is extremely frustrating to use, I cannot get into my code properly, I can’t do the functions I need to do to edit my site, it narrows the editing screen to a tiny narrow column, the tool bars disappear, and on and on. I liken this to when Microsoft changed their operating software to version 8 and uproar ensued. They had to release 8.1 to undo some of the damage. Please undo this Gutenburg nightmare. Look at all these ratings – all 1 stars that I can see. There should be a zero for the fact that WordPress has forced this on everyone. I LOVE WORDPRESS and I appreciate all that the programmers do for this community. But this Gutenburg thing seems like it’s in the wrong direction for progress.
