There seems to be some conflicting advice about Gutenberg. I understand that it is to be implemented on November 19th for 5.0. I am on a free blog and to be honest would prefer to stay on the classic editor. I post four or five times a day and mostly in a set format. Some people say that to use the plug in that keeps the classic editor you need to upgrade. Can you please let me know what my options are. Most of the articles are written by tech minded people for tech minded people. For the vast majority of those who are more mature… the whole thing sounds petrifying and I have already heard people saying they won’t continue. Appreciate some clarity please. thanks Sally
Topic: Gutenberg-who's tried it?
Curious to know your experiences.
Frankly, I like my theme. I’d rather focus on composing content and showcasing my photos.
Topic: New editor
I hate the new format (gutenberg)! How can I get back to Classic – permanently?
I used the Gutenberg editor to add a gallery to a page but the thumbnails are static (fixed size). Clicking does not bring up a full size image. I chose this theme years ago (Bueno) and don’t know if I need to change themes or add a plugin or what might be the best course. Can anyone help?
Topic: How to keep Gutenberg away?
We are quite happy to type our html and even avoid the current visual editor so we are not at all looking forward to Gutenberg. A business plan, which would allow a disabling plug-in, is too expensive for us. Please, please, allow all users to disable Gutenberg when it descends. Better yet let those who want it opt in. Our blog is not broken yet. Please do not fix it.
I’ve been searching for almost an hour for the right place to leave a review for this theme … It is fantastic and I’ve even tried it with Gutenberg (though at this point I think I’ll be reverting back to classic because of its ease).
THANKS for this fantastic, easy to customize, and very easy to setup theme.
hi there, gutenberg doesnt seen on tools menu neither plugins section. But when i try to install it again system says gutenberg is already installed. But in the pages section cannot use gutenberg i can use just classical editor. It doesnt seen. why?
Feedback on the use of Gutenberg in WordPress.com.
Theme – Independent Publisher 2
Document. I deliberately chose my largest document (~21K words), so not your typical size of post / page; with images from the media library; a handcrafted table of contents with links to take the user directly to each section; some shortcodes for a number of Getty Images that are used; and a handful of bordered sections which display information which does not readily fit with the general flow of the text.
Overall, the experience was not as bad as some people might lead you to believe. There again, I have been tinkering with Gutenberg as a WordPress.org user for a while so that was obviously an advantage for me.
Text colour in headings. I use colour in some headings, principally when a theme doe not make a good enough job (in my opinion) of differentiating between levels. This is easy to do in the classic editor but I cannot see a way to do it in Gutenberg, without diving into CSS.
Handcrafted table of contents. The conversion to blocks removed my labels (HTML anchors). I guess that it did not like the way that I had originally defined them, although they work ok in documents created via the classic editor. I have worked out what format the Gutenberg editor expects, and I have started to modify my existing table of contents accordingly so that Gutenberg will convert them ok.
The shortcodes worked fine.
The bordered sections had been implemented by using the HTML .. . From memory, I think that I found this method on WordPress.com Support. The converter removed the and and tended to split the content into multiple separate blocks, e.g. where there was a bit of text followed by a list, it produced a paragraph block and a list block. By using “the edit in HTML” facility I was able to recreate these bordered sections. It is a bit messy but fortunately there are only a small number of them.
Performance. Obviously, it can be affected by many things, e.g. the network and the load on the WordPress.com servers. The figures below should therefore be taken with a slight pinch of salt, but they do serve to give an indication of likely performance. Gutenberg has to do a lot more processing than the classic editor, and hence longer response times are inevitable. This may hardly be noticeable on modestly sized posts but they are in this extreme instance. My only gripe is that the editor gives no indication that it is working, leading to the “did I really click on that .. should I click it again” syndrome. Some sort of work in progress message would be good for lengthy processing.
Load 21k word page into the classic editor ~2 secs
Load 21K word page into the Gutenberg editor, resulting in a single classic block ~ 8 secs
Convert 21K word page with a single classic block into multiple blocks ~ 24 seconds
User views 21K words page created in the classic editor ~ 2 secs
User views 21K words page in blocks created in the Gutenberg editor ~ 7 seconds.
Re the size of this document, I had in fact already decided to split it up into multiple pages (a) because it can be sluggish to display it in WordPress 4.x and (b) I had already decided that response times would perforce be greater in Gutenberg. Currently, the largest page is about 8.5K words. The time to convert this page to blocks comes down to around 10 seconds.
