Gutenberg, the new WordPress editor, is progressing
nicely and will be merged with WordPress Core in 5.0 release. It’s a lot to keep track of but also exciting. In the words of Matt Mullenweg:“The editor
will endeavour to create a new page and post building experience that makes writing rich
posts effortless, and has “blocks” to make it easy what today might take shortcodes,
custom HTML, or “mystery meat” embed discovery.” #WHAT IS GUTEMBERG? Gutenberg is going to completely change the
editing experience by moving to a block-based approach to content. While the current focus is on content creation,
the eventual goal is to have Gutenberg “go beyond the post into page templates and ultimately,
full site customization.” That means eventually you’ll be able to
build your whole site using Gutenberg, including landing pages and other relevant content. #HOW THE WORDPRESS GUTENBERG EDITOR WORKS A second ago, I told you that Gutenberg is
a block-based editor. It was kind of rude to leave you hanging because,
if you’re like most people, you might not know what that means. So here’s block-based editing 101 Essentially, Gutenberg replaces the single
edit field of the current WordPress TinyMCE editor with lots of individual “blocks”. These blocks then allow you to build more
complex designs than those permitted in the current WordPress editor. So what’s a block? Well, a block can be pretty much anything. For example, you can have blocks for Regular
Text, Images, Video Embeds, Buttons, Widgets (yes, those same widgets you use in your sidebar),
Tables, Etc. Moreover, what’s neat is that developers
will be able to create their third-party blocks that you can access via plugins for even more
flexibility. Each block is its entity that you can manipulate
on an individual basis. Watch how quickly I can rearrange those two
blocks just by clicking a button. And because each block is “separate”,
you can also add things like custom backgrounds just for specific blocks. In general, it gives you more flexibility
and in-depth control. #SO GUTENBERG IS A PAGE BUILDER THEN, RIGHT? Not quite. At least not in its current form. Gutenberg is going to make it a lot easier
to regular style content like blog posts or standard pages, but it’s not a complete
substitute for page builders in its current form. This all-new WordPress editor is poised to
eliminate the need for page builders for most “standard” content, and it also creates
a single unified method for creating more complex post layouts. But when it comes to building more complex
pages, like a landing page, you’re probably going to appreciate the greater flexibility
offered by page builders (at least during Gutenberg’s initial release). For example, in our comparison between Elementor
vs. Divi Builder vs. Beaver Builder, you can see how the top page builders offer much more
things. Gutenberg might get there someday. But at least in its initial release form,
page builders will still give you the flexibility to design more complicated standalone pages. #GUTENBERG IS THE FUTURE While Gutenberg has its detractors, it’s
still coming in WordPress 5.0. For most casual users, it will, after some
growing pains, bring a more flexible content creation experience. Non-developers will be able to craft more
complex layouts with extra elements like buttons intuitively, content embeds, and lots more. And that will, hopefully, help WordPress to
continue to grow. Until WordPress 5.0 ships, you can play around
with the WordPress Gutenberg editor by installing the plugin. And if you’d like to keep on top of the
latest Gutenberg updates, you can follow along with the #gutenberg tag at Make WordPress
Core. Now, we’d love to hear from you. I’m sure many of you have strong thoughts
on Gutenberg – so let us know about it in the comments! See you in the next video 🙂

    From what I can see, I don't think much of Gutenberg. Rather than shoving it down our throats before it's even complete, why not wait until it's done? I'm having enough trouble doing a website without adding something that frankly, looks stupid.

    Luv all your videos sir! Uh but there was nothing appealing about Guttenburg here to me. Not a single page there look in any way stylish or modern. I’ll take the free Elementor or Brizy wayyyy over this! 🙌🏻

    Gutenberg is hell.
    Good for stupid users but hell for programmers.. and the web it self.
    It is completely idiotic to let users "design" their website and let them throw all the multimedia content it to the main content field without separation that lets you (designer/programmer) decide when it has to be shown and where exactly. Its like when you take away the shelfs from the closet and throw in all your clothes. Awesome right you do not need to think of where to put the t-shirt exactly.
    How do you like that?

    This will just kill the WordPress growth as there will be tun of website full of uncontrollable garbage.
    WordPress team If you wanna sell more gadgets well this is the right path to go, but don't expect to sell more than gadgets.

    Thank you for providing this simple easy to understand explanation! I have been terrified of the change. It looks like with time to invest in learning, it will really improve the quality of my website.
    I don't like their present format. My preference is for the version before the current one. I think they tried to over simplify and made it harder to control, design etc. Looking forward to learning, if only I could find the time, 🙂

    Feedback I sent:

    While Gutenburg is better than the prior updates, we were not asked about these beforehand?

    Why not:

    Get people's feedback by having a mock screenshot of the interface, then people can move the various functions around on this mockup, and send back to yourselves how they think the WP interface would look better,and where the various functions should go?

    Also would be a lot easier if "Remote Viewing" was at least available, because it is too difficult and lengthy having to explain our problems?

    Or even better Remote Active Viewing, where your staff can assist?

    WP 'always' seems to be offering as little as it can and being stingy on this, which actually creates problems for not just your users, but your staff!

    I don't agree with yourselves not offering free chat support or email anymore! That's not fair to those with little money but the conviction with something important to say!

    Also I keep on being told there are no managers at WP?

    Well you are a private company unfortunately I've been informed, so there's no reason for this, and someone has to be in a position of authority so there is person to take responsibility for situation or problem and then take action on this?

    PS: I appreciate the effort, but this video is really that easy to understand and the chaps accent was also a little difficutl to comprehend?

    I have seen a lot in my life working in IT. My goal always has been to keep it simple. Gutenberg is simple, I like it. However I miss one option as well as I see one bad habit. What I miss is that I cannot display the full picture on click anymore. My followers like my pictures and want them in 100% size. The bad habit is that Gutenberg stores the full size images independant of your choice to display them in your story.

    In this video, when showing us the plugins area, Gutenberg showed 2.5 stars if I caught it correctly. I'm trying to understand why WordPress would choose a product that is reviewed so unimpressively to underpin its content creation efforts moving forward. I sincerely hope there are big plans underway to create a better user experience?

    I cannot see the purpose of this. Having tried it, I find it ADDS complexity and makes writing a blog much more of a chore with intrusive 'blocks' that just get in the way – and 'Writer's Block" is enough to cope with. My blog is about the content; words and images. I like it as simple as possible since the reason I use WordPress is to keep writing, not to fiddle around trying to make it showy. In addition, Gutenberg's rendering of images means that if they are larger than the screen width, you get to see only a corner of the pic. Conclusion: Gutenberg is not helpful in any way…I hate it! So, WordPress; either keep the 'classic' editing tools, or lose a customer. Thank you.

    WordPress should not add this plugin as its core editor. By adding this it will somehow destroy the other plugins and we know wordpress is such a success because of its huge plugin base. Gutenberg layout is taking to complete screen size which is once again compromising the other features

    2:30 – that's kind of weird when you're making a video promoting a new feature and then see that the feature is close to poorly rated (2.5 / 5 stars) by many users.

    Not a shining endorsement.

    What a mess. I installed this. It's a tony pathetic editing space and when I go to edit previously published pages content it shows as empty. Can't believe this was released. At least someone made a plugin to disable this. We don't need this mess, we want clean and more simple editors. Not block based chaos.

    No matter how you try, this will year to understand, rather than make it easier. Downloading is a big mistake !!!
    Go back to the old one it was very good, Gutenberg is for the one who designed it, not for actual consumer/users. Very sad, you have scewed up everything I am working on.

    Thank you for a clear, concise and well-explained video. It went through the features a bit fast, but I realise this wasn't a tutorial. I don't feel Gutenberg (stupid name, gets mixed up with the literature project) is intuitive and it'll be a difficult change. I raised a bug on links, which still hadn't been fixed as during development bugs needed to be 'claimed' by a developer – which must have been hideous to try and Project Manage (ex-PM here) and probably not the most intelligent strategy as there may be loads of bugs not chosen, waiting to hit us between the eyes! Has anyone out there tried it and switched despite the bugs?
