WordPress 5.0 “Bebo”

Say Hello to the New Editor


WordPress 5.0 introduces a block-based editor that offers a streamlined editing experience. The new editor is better at inserting media content and rearranging any type of content. Each piece of content is in its own block, which is meant to help site owners decide how content is displayed.

    Gutenberg: The new JS based editing experience 👌


    Content migrations from the classic editor is going to be tough but fruitful.

    As a core contributing developer of WordPress, I am super excited about Gutenberg. It's an audacious project built on top of JavaScript/React.js. This cutting edge editing experience is going to make building content with WordPress an excellent experience (if not now then in a year or so from now).

    Blocks are going to change the way wordpress was being used


    Switching from classic editor

    I've been using wordpress since 2012. Apparently I've been using the classic editor for quite a long time. So switching between the new gutenberg view is going to confuse users like me for a while. Yet I feel its worth switching

    I'm curious about how the existing plugins would support the same

  • Pros: 

    Quicker layout of pages


    A bit of effort to move to 5.0. Still some accessibility issues. Would have preferred Vue

    When I started with WP it made me feel like publishing was for everyone, even me- I got to publish, and the images were aligned, posts neatly organised etc. Gutenberg worried me a great deal, and I started out not liking the idea. I thought it would make all the mistakes of adding complexity and making me struggle. I tried the Gutenberg editor very early on and after a couple of updates, I have found that it makes me feel like I felt when I started using WP. That is huge for me. I however hope that all the #WPDrama is sorted out, and that the all voices in the community feel listened to.

  • Pros: 




    Nobody asked for this. Nobody wanted this. When people tried it, the general sentiment was to get rid of it. Yet, here it is and it might just be the beginning of the end for WordPress.

  • Pros: 

    Good ideal with blocks


    - "classic" pages become a mess - buggy

    Wordpress should NOT force updates for poorly tested versions. 5.0.3 is full of bugs
