“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.

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.

What’s Next for the Project?

The four phases of the project are Editing, Customization, Collaboration, and Multilingual. You can hear more about the project and phases from Matt in his State of the Word talks for 2019 and 2018. Additionally you can follow updates in the Make WordPress Core blog.

While the idea of a block editor is good (and not new), this is extremely disappointing and too limiting. A prime example is... I don't want to be FORCED to give a page a title that will display. Not all pages need displayed titles and in fact get in the way of design. The classic editor was much better. Bring back the option of using either the classic editor or Guttenberg block editor. And based on the reviews here.... I'm not alone in my thinking regarding Guttenberg.

I think Gutenberg was bad when it launched, and I'd give it 1 star for sure a couple of years ago. But now, and especially looking into the future - this is a great solution and a fantastic builder with a lot of possibilities. It blows every competitor out of the water in terms of speed and performance, it's pretty basic out of the box, but you can update it with a lot of features like custom blocks plugins, or even create your own set of blocks. I like the idea of continuous feature implementation, depending on the project needs, a lot more than having a bloated builder like Elementor that will just destroy your PageSpeed score with unnecessary scripts and features. Haters - don't be such clowns, no one wants to build websites using a 'Word style' editor, either you accept this reality or go back to 2010, weirdos.
