    Trust me, I hate this Gutenberg Editor, Previous one was way much better.

    Trust, I so want go back to the previous version, new one is annoying, hate it. I later installed classic wordpress editor, it’s the same.

  3. Gutenberg may be a featured one. Still, I couldn’t give up the old WordPress Editor and move on to Gutenberg. If such a big WordPress community has taken a step towards its progress, obviously it must be a favor to us. Let’s practice and transform gradually.

  4. The new editor is a little confusing at first, very similar to a weebly build. I prefer the old wordpress editor.

    Looks like gutenburg is not user friendly, you can only edit the content but you cannot change the design of the content which is not really a big change, classic editor is much better for me

    Good grief! I’m a blogger and hardly have the time to fiddle around with a new editor. Ugh! How can I bring the classic back?

    Hi Stuart,

    The Gutenberg WordPress editor is fascinating, although I only started using it. In act, I’m still struggling with a little with the editor, but so far, I’m enjoying it. Your tips are a great headups.

    Like Moss Clement, I have just started using it. It’s slightly tough though. Still, I believe it would be quite exciting once mastered. By now, got a go here. Great tips.

  11. Staurt,

    This new Gutenberg feels like material design & fresh, At the beginning stage, I reverted to old WordPress to my website but after seeing many features I started using this Gutenberg and ever simple and easy navigation.
