    If you’re seeing issues in Gutenberg I’d suspect uBlock Origin rather than the cache.

    Ad blockers like that, among other things, look for and block the JavaScript code that some ads use. Gutenberg, as well as the media library at My Sites, run completely on JavaScript, and the WP-Admin media library also has some elements that use JS code, so it’s possible uBlock could be blocking some code those things need to run.

    Please check if storing an exception for your site, as well as the My Site dashboard and the WP-Admin dashboard for your site, helps with this.


    Topic: 5.0 Gutenberg

    in forum Support

    This is a disaster!!!!!!! Please help me!



    Bingo !
    Thats exactly what it was and maybe u block origin had something to do with it too.
    I am using Firefox 60.3.0esr (64-bit) on Debian and I have noticed other issues with it too.
    Clearing the cache helps but doesn’t last long and it seems I have to do it in order for the media library to function. I didn’t have this issue with older versions.
    Will try other browsers and see how it goes.
    I am curious if it is the cause of some of the glitches I am having with Gutenberg too.

    Thanks for your reply.



    Hi there!

    I understand it can be overwhelming to experience the new editor.

    What you’re seeing is the new Gutenberg editor. It allows website creators to build a website using blocks, which are small drag-and-drop units.

    What is the address of the site on which you’re working?

    If you’re using the self-hosted version of WordPress on another hosting provider, you can install the Classic Editor plugin to revert back to the old editor.

    Here’s some more info on that-



    Hi there, the last time I looked there wasn’t a tutorial for users on using the new editor over at WordPress.org, but there’s a bit of info in the intro here https://wordpress.org/gutenberg/ and although your site isn’t hosted here, our support guide to the new editor may help too. You can find it here> https://en.support.wordpress.com/wordpress-editor/

    Hope that helps.



    Hello @casbonjourney,

    I see what you mean. Regardless, you should be able to copy from MS Word as you normally do and paste it into Gutenberg. As mentioned prior, the visual editor is the default for Gutenberg. And you can switch to HTML using the method I posted about.

    Can I safely assume you are wanting to switch to Gutenberg but want to be sure on this point first? If it helps, I’d be willing to try it on one of my test blogs. Do you feel comfortable uploading a Word file to your site and providing the URL for me to download?

    Alternatively, you can always create another free site on your account to use for testing on WordPress.com without worrying about affecting your current blog.

    Either way, I’m happy to help – let me know! :)


    charleybea, Thanks for the quick reply. I’m not sure if this answers my question. It looks like you were able to copy/paste footnotes into a Gutenberg block, but what I’m wondering is whether I can cut/paste an entire MS Word document that includes footnotes into Gutenberg with the footnotes transferring over properly (i.e., with links in the body of the text that hyperlink to the footnotes), as they currently do with the Classic editor.



    Hello @casbonjourney,

    I tried this on my test blog and was able to paste a snippet of your footnotes into Gutenberg. Visual seems to be the default editor.

    If you need to adjust the HTML, it’s a little different in Gutenberg vs. the classic editor. With the cursor actively in the visual editor of Gutenberg, you’ll see a set of 3 vertical dots at the top left of your screen. Click that and you’ll have the option to view the content in the HTML editor. See screenshot.

    Does this info help?


    Can someone please tell me how to add the HTML coding for a Benchmark classic subscriber form to a block? Neither the widget marked ” or ‘HTML’ works?

    Alas, this is not working for me (the auto-applied part). I typed this sentence into a default Gutenberg block:

    Ths is an exmple of some mad spellling which is not gettink picked up

    Alas, nothing underlines. There is no change to the text at all. I’m using the Chrome browser Version 71.0 on a PC.


    In reply to: Spellchecking


    Hello @wespomeroy,

    Spellcheck is auto applied to a Gutenberg block. When I type a misspelled word on purpose, a red underline showed up. And in my case, I used a paragraph block.

    You can always insert a classic block if you prefer to have the spellcheck button.

    I hope this helps! :)


    I use footnotes extensively in my blog. My current method is to do most of my writing in MS Word, including properly formatted footnotes. Then I cut/paste into the visual editor in WordPress.com . This transfers the footnotes with the proper HTML links. Then I use the HTML editor for adjustments such as superscripts and any additional text formatting. Will I still be able to do this with Gutenberg? If not, what will the options be for creating footnotes in Gutenberg with WordPress.com?

    I tried out the new Gutenberg editor, which I liked. But I can no longer find out where to spell check.

    Thank you for the screen shots.

    You’re not using the Gutenberg editor.

    The editor with the black menu bar on the left is the original WordPress editor, usually referred to as the Classic or the WP-Admin editor. You get to that one by going to https://ronwhited.wordpress.com/wp-admin/ and clicking on Posts ->Add New or Posts ->All Posts ->Edit.

    The one with the entirely white background is the WordPress.com editor, also known as the Calypso editor. You reach that one by going to My Site ->Blog Posts and editing a post, or by the Edit button that will appear on your posts themselves.

    In the context of Gutenberg, both of these are the “Classic editor”, albeit two versions of it, but they both work in essentially the same way.

    The block editor, aka Gutenberg, looks similar to the Calypso editor at first glance, but it works significantly differently. If you want to give it a try, create a new post in the My Sites/Calypso editor, click the gear icon at the top, and click Learn More in the message that will appear at the bottom of the settings menu on the right. You can switch back to the classic editor at any time.

    More details on the new block editor here:


    If you enable the block editor, you’ll see it in both My Sites and in WP-Admin.

    I have not changed to the Gutenberg editor, and I do not have the … in the upper right hand corner of my screen. I have screenshots of my problem and have uploaded them to my media library, they are the 1st two shown.
    Thank you!


    In reply to: Using Blocks

    Hi –

    Yes, you can switch between editors at any point in time. Just use the ... in the upper right corner of the editing screen. When the menu appears, look for switch to the x editor that’s how you toggle between them.

    As for the justified text, you should be able to use the keyboard command for your device. Example, Alt+Shift+J, and justify the highlighted text.

    If the keyboard command is not working please look at, and add your report to this open issue: https://github.com/WordPress/gutenberg/issues/8450


    In reply to: Two different editors?

    Howdy –

    Are you viewing the post on the same device each time? Or are you looking from 2 different devices?

    In any case, you can revert away from Gutenberg with the ... in the upper right corner of the screen.

    It’d be great to see where you’re at. Please send along a screen shot, or the link from your browser bar, when editing the posts.

    Screen shot can be added to the media library of the site.

    Hi there,

    The Copy Post feature has not been added to the new block editor yet. You’ll need to completely disable Gutenberg and use the classic editor instead to use that feature at this point.


    Hi there!

    Would you mind telling us more about your issue so that we can assist you?
