I’m contemplating the inevitability of migrating customerservant.com to Gutenberg. This is a thing that I know is going to have to happen but dear Lord it makes my head hurt.
How I Get Things Done
john, while building a new site with Gutenberg: “This is an experimental site for me.” Me: “Good. We need more documentation for screen reader users. You can write it.” #WorkLife #WordPress
Hey #WordPress am I rangling this correctly and #Gutenberg does not have a link block? Sure, I can type the HTML, but the whole point of Gutenberg is for users to be able to do the web thing without knowing code, and the absence of a link block seems like something that shouldn’t be the case.
Finally! Finally finally finally finally it’s done! We! Are! Going! To! Ship!
Also, I don’t think I ever want to see a list element again. Ever.
Quick tip: If you’re building podcast websites with WordPress, or even a website which has a podcast as a secondary feature, use the Simple Podcasting plugin. If you use PowerPress you’re locked into the Classic Editor plugin with everything that entails, including using older themes.
I’m wondering if it might be worth writing up the experience of using both Gutenberg and the Classic Editor in tandom on a site? Spoiler alert: It’s complicated and it introduces a lot of extra coordination regarding content editing and creation.
Do not recommend unless it’s absolutely necessary.
