There is something I have to admit. When I first heard of Gutenberg, the new editor for WordPress, I was excited. I love new things and testing them out. But when I downloaded it to say I was nonplussed is an understatement. It was buggy and nothing quite worked.

Enter WordPress 5.0 and the public, out-of-beta, version of Gutenberg. Is it still a little buggy? Sure. But overall it works quite well and the blocks that you can add to the posts and pages make it much more appealing than the old TinyMCE “Classic” editor.

Does this mean, I’m convinced? Maybe. It really depends on the project and if this new editing system plays well with the theme/framework we’re using for our clients. But overall, I’m pleased with it.
