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.

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.

This plugin is really counterproductive in my opinion. It's really time to add an option to disable it. Please make an effort, thanks from all your users.

While no page builder is perfect nor bug free, Gutenberg block editor is a great fit for most sites. After all it's build for core WordPress, which is tailored for general use cases yet infinitely expandable. I really appreciate all of the efforts the community developers have put into this project. Great work!

I look forward to it and can't wait to build Template layouts for headers, footers, posts, pages and archives, and I don't install anything else. I didn't know The plugin was different from the WP defoult. The work is really impressive! I rediscovered the pleasure of writing, plus the possibility of formatting even in a complex way. Thanks! If I could, I would put 6 of Stars

This plugin is of terrible quality. I hope someday they will be fine, but so far it has only given me a headache.
