**This is written in Gutenberg, which I have currently installed on this site**
One of the greatest selling points of WordPress when we get new clients at Image Freedom, is it’s editor. Many of our clients are intimidated by the idea of blogging, or updating copy on a web site. But then we show them WordPress.
Can you write an email in Gmail? Then odds are you can use WordPress. It is the same wonderful editor you see everywhere. In Gmail, in Microsoft Word. It is the same. You have seen it. You know it.
I know there is a classic editor utility that can be installed in sites, and that will be very helpful in the short run. I worry about two years from now when the classic editor plugin is no longer supported.
There are thousands of legacy sites for small businesses using old themes. Will they break with this new editor?
And blogging on it, what a weird experience. How Come I have received this silly error?
It was a paragraph pointing to the blog post about the head of usability resigning because of Gutenberg. Instead of it just being another paragraph on the page. It is now a broken section. That is a useful feature.
I just hit Preview, and the block of content is still there. But why did it break?
On top of this, there have been some complaints about usability. Leading to the resignation of the head of usability at WordPress.
Gutenberg’s goal, according to some is to compete with sites like Wix.
Great. Compete. But don’t throw out the baby with the bath water. Allow Wix to exist, but then show site owners when its time to graduate from Wix or other easy platforms, WordPress is here.
