Ready or not, here it comes! Let’s go behind the scenes with The New Gutenberg Editor for WordPress. Why? It’s planned for launch in November when WordPress version 5.0 is released. That’s like right around the corner – or calendar – from now…
Yet there’s good news! My friend, Cindy Barnes, has written a couple of blog posts about the new Gutenberg Editor so we can go learn in a FUN and FRIENDLY way. She writes from the WordPress.org perspective yet much of it is common to the WordPress.com site users as well. I love it that she takes us behind the scenes for a preview!
Here’s Cindy’s words: EMBRACE CHANGE
Not everyone likes change. In fact, most people dig their heels in when they know change is on the horizon. But, there are changes that are good for you and from my perspective, the new Gutenberg Editor is one of them! You may have missed my first post encouraging you to have fun with the new Gutenberg Editor so if you want to catch up on it, I’ll wait right here for you. I am sure that after catching up on the test drive, you are not welcoming Gutenberg with open arms and I understand that!
But my concern for you is if you don’t test it out prior to the version 5.0 update, you will be majorly frustrated. For your success, I strongly encourage you to test drive Gutenberg in a draft post. Play around in it, get comfortable with it, learn its nuances and when the release of 5.0 is out, you will be successful in using it.
