“Gutenberg” is a codename for a whole new paradigm for creating with WordPress, that aims to revolutionize the entire publishing experience as much as 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.

The block editor introduces a modular approach to all parts of your site: 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 WordPress users to create media-rich content in a visually intuitive way — and without work-arounds like shortcodes or custom HTML.

The block editor first became available in December 2018. We’re always hard at work refining the experience, creating more and better blocks, and laying the groundwork for the future phases of work. Each WordPress release comes ready to go with the stable features from multiple versions of the Gutenberg plugin, so you don’t need to use the plugin to benefit from the work being done here. However, if you’re more adventurous and tech-savvy, the Gutenberg plugin gives you the latest and greatest, 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?

Vi vil elske at høre på jeres fejlrapporter, funktionsønsker al anden feedback! Fortsæt venligst over til GitHub problemside og søg blandt eksisterende problemer eller opret en ny melding. Selvom vi forsøger videresende problemer rapporteret her på pluginforum’et, så vil du få meget hurtigere respons på (og reducere dobbeltarbejde) ved at holde det hele centraliseret på GitHub repository.

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

It depends on the feature you want to use! Keep in mind that each version of WordPress after 5.0 comes with bundled versions of the Gutenberg plugin, automatically containing new features and changes. If you want the cutting edge features, including more experimental items, you will need to use the plugin. You can read more here about whether using 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 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.

Terrible editor, con fallas, desorganizado, las funciones mas necesarias estas ocultas y se pierde tiempo en encontrarlas, tratan de imitar a elementor pero lo hacen desastrozamente, en definitiva desactivar este plugin es lo primero que hago en instalaciones nuevas

This editor is very difficult to use. I wasted at least 2 and half hour making simple design. Unable to manage costume width and height. Even a simple table I was unable to handle properly. I was forced to use old classic editor to make tabular data which has the property of Colspan.

Who the h... puts a confirmation notice on a save button that looks exactly like the button you just pressed? there is no indication whatsoever that there is an notice telling you to check your changes before saving, so now you have to press publish twice to get your page or post published, guess who lost a full nigth of work because of that? seriously thanks Guttemberg thanks.

The negative reviews on here are enough to make one's head spin. Before giving into the temptation to add another one to the pile, please consider the following: First of all, this is a plugin to test the development version of the block editor, not the official space to vent your feelings about the direction of the development of WordPress. Secondly, consider how unfair it is that when a group of people invest countless amounts of time, effort, and intelligence in making a whole slew of new capabilities freely available to the world at large, while leaving existing capabilities available, that others find it needful to go out of their way to complain about it. Thirdly, there's an element of human phycology that should be factored into your feelings about Gutenberg... people, in general, are more motivated by the prospect of loss than the prospect of gain. There seems to be a frenzied fear in the Wordpress community that we're "loosing" the classic experience and being "forced" into a new one. So much so that people are now forking WordPress because of it, and egging each other on to throw mud "on the way out". This assumption of "loss" is not only untrue because of the official "Classic Editor" experience is still available, but because WordPress continues to be committed to being an extensible platform that will have almost any kind of editing experience available in the plugin ecosystem indefinitely, even long after any official support for the "Classic Editor" plugin may possibly be removed. Finally, and regardless, anything that wants to remain relevant over the long term needs to be willing to make constant disruptive changes. Smart brands like Apple, Google, and Microsoft realize this, and we generally applaud them for it. The leadership of WordPress obviously understands this as well. Wordpress would certainly become irrelevant in the fast-paced world of the Internet without this leadership. Let's not use their generosity to make conversations like this possible as an opportunity to undermine their foresight. If you want to contribute in meaningful ways to the conversations surrounding outstanding issues in the state of Gutenberg development, please start or join a ticket on Github. If you want to use the classic editor or some other Wordpress builder, please do...indefinitely. If you left a negative review here simply because you hate the fact that WordPress incorporated an official block-based editor, please consider removing or revising it. If you want to leave a meaningful review on this particular development plugin, feel free. Here's mine: I really enjoy testing out the future development features of the Wordpress block builder with this plugin. Thanks so much to everyone who is working so hard on this. toodle-oo

Please Automattic team go back to the classic editor by default. Most Gutenberg reviews are 1 star. It is unusable for the vast majority of users.
