”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.

The Gutenberg 11.5 took a perfectly good working site and crashed it after the update. It was missing several files essential to make the plugin work in the PHP error log. I found out about the plugin crashing my site days later. Use at your own peril.

Desde que se lanzo en la versión 5.0 en 2018 a evolucionado mucho, y no tiene nada que ver con esa primera versión. Yo doy formación y los alumnos lo entienden y lo usan de una forma más intuitiva que antes.

I just don't get it. I know block editors are the thing, WP Bakery/Visual Composer is one, and I generally like it. But I can choose to use it or not, or I can just use an empty post and move quickly between Code and Visual views. On my websites, I use the Classic Editor plugin to make my life a bit more familiar. But I had to take a look at my father's website which does not have the Classic installed and therefore forced into using the Gutenberg editor. After struggling with it for a while, wondering why the base HTML was so damn messy, trying to find code view (which I had to LOOK UP ON THE INTERNET how to find), trying to sort why this interface was so ugly and user-unfriendly, I finally had to look up why his site posts/pages basically sucked and ran into that it was basically using Gutenberg. My gods, I am so glad I am using the classic. This is a horrible interface. Make this a choice (natively, not that we have to install a plugin to make our editing actually function in a non-crazy making fashion). I'd give this negative stars if I could.
