Gutenberg

Description

“Gutenberg” is a codename for a whole new paradigm for creating with WordPress, that aims to revolutionize the entire publishing experience as much as Johannes Gutenberg did the printed word. The project is following a four-phase process that will touch major pieces of WordPress — Editing, Customization, Collaboration, and Multilingual.

Following the introduction of post block editing in December 2018, Gutenberg later introduced full site editing (FSE) in 2021, which shipped with WordPress 5.9 in early 2022.

What Does Gutenberg Do?

Gutenberg is WordPress’s “block editor”, and introduces a modular approach to modifying your entire site. Edit individual content blocks on posts or pages. Add and adjust widgets. Even design your site headers, footers, and navigation with full site editing support.

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 be added, arranged, and rearranged, allowing users to create media-rich content and site layouts in a visually intuitive way — and without workarounds like shortcodes or custom HTML and PHP.

We’re always hard at work refining the experience, creating more and better blocks, and laying the groundwork for future phases of work. Each WordPress release includes stable features from the Gutenberg plugin, so you don’t need to install the plugin to benefit from the work being done here.

Early Access

Are you a tech-savvy early adopter who likes testing bleeding-edge and experimental features, and isn’t afraid to tinker with features that are still in active development? If so, this beta plugin gives you access to the latest Gutenberg features for block and full site editing, as well as a peek into what’s to come.

Contributors Wanted

For the adventurous and tech-savvy, the Gutenberg plugin gives you the latest and greatest feature set, so you can join us in testing and developing bleeding-edge features, playing around with blocks, and maybe get inspired to contribute or build your own blocks.

FAQ

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

The best place to report bugs, feature suggestions, or any other feedback is at the Gutenberg GitHub issues page. Before submitting a new issue, please search the existing issues to check if someone else has reported the same feedback.

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

Do I have to use the Gutenberg plugin to get access to these features?

Not necessarily. Each version of WordPress after 5.0 has included features from the Gutenberg plugin, which are known collectively as the WordPress Editor. You are likely already benefitting from stable features!

But if you want cutting edge beta features, including more experimental items, you will need to use the plugin. You can read more here to help decide whether the plugin is right for you.

Where can I see which Gutenberg plugin versions are included in each WordPress release?

View the Versions in WordPress document to get a table showing which Gutenberg plugin version is included in each WordPress release.

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 2021, 2020, 2019, and 2018. Additionally, you can follow the biweekly release notes and monthly project plan updates on the Make WordPress Core blog for more up to date information about what’s happening now.

I hated this plugin when I was using it against Classic Editor. But after starting to develop plugins with it, got to know how better it is seeing from the development point of view. I am not sure if the page builders will exist after people start using this as the standard.

All those who doesn't love Gutenberg, Once day thing will change and you all will be proud on Wordpress once again. I am in support of gutenberg and hoping it will be stable and usable very soon for mass audience.

L'editor visuale è davvero complesso come UI, opzioni sparse un po ovunque e spazzi tra elementi davvero enormi. Ne consegue che anche una piccola pagina sia enorme a livello visivo richiedendo continui scroll e non avendo una visione d'insieme. difficile anche capire la struttura dei vari blocchi ed elementi senza analizzare l'albero della pagina. Va totalmente rivista l'interfaccia utente.

Congratulation with the latest update! You managed to NOT make any improvedments in logic and userfriendliness of the Gutenberg tool. I would suggest to scrap this project and go on the market place and just purchase any of the excisting pagebuilder. It doesnt matter if it is DIVI, Elementor, Oxygen og which ever, then you can claim any of these to be the official WordPress builder and you can start make money. Done deal, no more waste of time and everyone can get on with their websites.

For accessibility, you absolutely must add the option to turn off add-a-block previews on hover, and/or make the preview only appear after your cursor sits on a block option for at least 0.5 seconds. (Preferably add both.) Moving my cursor from one block to the other makes the preview image flash in and out, and it's causing eye strain and giving me headaches/nausea, which makes it totally unusable. I'm switching to the classic editor until this is fixed.

For those of us that require things to work, and don't have time to play...this is absolutely the worst editor ever. We immediately install the Classic Editor plugin on every client site we create.
