“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.

How can I send feedback or get help with a bug?

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. While we’ll try to triage issues reported here on the plugin forum, you’ll get a faster response (and reduce duplication of effort) by keeping everything centralized in the GitHub repository.

What’s Next for the Project?

The four phases of the project are Editing, Customization, Collaboration, and Multilingual. You can hear more about the project and phases from Matt in his State of the Word talks for 2019 and 2018. Additionally you can follow updates in the Make WordPress Core blog.

I can understand that nobody likes change but for heavens sake, some of these review are completely and utterly unfair. If you really hate it that much, just install the Classic Editor plugin. It takes minutes. As a piece of software itself, Gutenberg is solid in terms of how it's been developed, and how extensible it is. I did the Gutenberg modules for a very popular plugin, and it was a pleasure to integrate with. It degrades peacefully, and for any newcomers, it's much more intuitive to use than the classic editors non-standard workflows which are muddied even further by various plugins different approaches to doing things. The sheer number of sites running "page builder" plugins should give you a good indicator that it really was high time WordPress moved on from the classic editor, which is even older than YouTube. Good on WordPress for making a concrete effort to stay relevant. Some of the reviewers here would be wise to also do that.

I think most of the 1 star reviews must come from people who don't like change and just want to keep using the old editor. I felt like that for a while, but I took some time to learn Gutenberg and now I love it, so much more flexible and yes intuitive once you understand the basics. Thanks guys for all your hard work! 🙂

Ho provato diverse volte a usare Gutemberg ma non ho capito la logica con cui è utilizzabile. E soprattutto non capisco lo scopo di voler semplificare aggiungendo variabili a tutti i livelli, invece di rendere la costruzione della pagina più simile a un disegno a mano libera. Invece di semplificare avete complicato e limitato le possibilità di sviluppo. Posso capire la logica di mercato in cui vi muovete, ma questo mi sembra un suicidio annunciato! Tempo buttato via. Spero che qualcuno abbia un'idea migliore della vostra.

I WANT HIS NAME. Who's even worse idea is to force us to use it? I WANT HIS NAME TOO. IT'S AWFUL. LEAVE US ALONE TO DO OUR OWN THING.

I came back to WP after an extended break, updated site, theme broken, and come to find out that "Gutenberg" is now the default post & page editor in WP. Politely put: my mind is blown! This is beyond terrible. If this was in WP in the early days, it would have never gotten off the ground. This is the equivalent of using a MS Zune with Windows 10 UI, hide everything that you need, try to do something, you can't see what it is doing, what it shows in the editor does not render properly on screen ... default theme, simple post, one small photo, three times it published the photo at half width relative to the height, simple line breaks and paragraphs, 2/3 of them removed, ... WTF?! In all my life and first using a computer ~40 years ago I have never seen such an abomination and text mangling. I literally have NO idea how in the world this got elevated to the default editor. It should not have gone beyond alpha or beta. Not having traditional UI elements in a text editor is just bonkers. And, you are putting the name Gutenberg to shame. I can actually set letter type and print the old fashioned way faster than I can make a simple post in WP and get the result with a bit of basic markup the way I intended!!! I simply have nothing positive to say about the implementation and execution; despite the fact that I can from a technical aspect see what the goal was. Except that it was not necessary and should have been an opt-in. Not a default. If somebody with 30 years of computer experience can't work this thing ... how is an average user who may give posting abilities supposed to use it properly? If you need a new manual to put some text on a blog or site. It is a FAIL. Rant over.
