The Gutenberg WordPress Editor: 10 Things You Need to Know

Very soon, the Gutenberg WordPress editor will become part of the WordPress core. What does that mean for you? What if you’re already using a page builder? In this post, we’ll walk through the basics of the new Gutenberg editor for WordPress and what you need to know.

What is the Gutenberg WordPress Editor?

The Gutenberg WordPress editor is a new page builder that is being designed to integrate with WordPress core. Gutenberg will add content blocks and page builder-like functionality to every up-to-date WordPress website. When in use, it will replace TinyMCE as the default content editor. With Gutenberg, content is added in blocks of various types from the WordPress backend.

Gutenberg is slated to be released with WordPress 5.0. Thankfully, there’s a lot of healthy debate going on around Gutenberg involving many people who develop and use WordPress.

Gutenberg WordPress editor

1. The Purpose of Gutenberg

  • “The goal of the block editor is to make adding rich content to WordPress simple and enjoyable.”
    – From the Gutenberg plugin description on WordPress.org.
  • “Gutenberg is an important step forward for WordPress. Gutenberg enables WordPress to build content layouts, not just write articles. It is one of the many transitions happening in WordPress toward a more simplified user experience.”
    – Zack Katz, speaking at WordCamp Denver 2017

The question of WHY Gutenberg is an ongoing debate. We’ll talk more about this later.

2. Matt Mullenweg is Completely Behind It

  • In The State of the Word 2016, Mullenweg announced that the visual editor would be one of three core focuses for 2017.
  • Matt took over as project lead for Gutenberg earlier this year and assigned Automattic employees Matias Ventura and Joen Asmussen to lead the development.
  • Read Matt’s take on Gutenberg here: We Called it Gutenberg for a Reason.

3. Gutenberg is Currently a Plugin

  • You can add Gutenberg to any WordPress site today as a plugin downloaded from the WordPress plugin directory.
  • The Gutenberg plugin is usually updated weekly as new features are included.
  • As noted in the plugin description… this is beta software. Use with care.

4. Gutenberg Will Be Included in WordPress 5.0

  • The revised Gutenberg roadmap was published in August.
    • Nov 2017: 4.9 release
    • Dec 2017: Begin merge proposal for Gutenberg
    • Jan 2018: Gutenberg / Customizer crossover
  • No date for WordPress 5.0 has been officially set based on the official WordPress roadmap.

5. Gutenberg is Definitely Not Finished Yet

  • Many of the features of Gutenberg are still being implemented, and new versions have changed previously implemented UI and features.
  • Don’t panic because it doesn’t work well right now.
  • Right now, you’re basically seeing the sausage being made, and it’s not pleasant. Some have complained about this, but there’s something to be said for transparency. Perhaps it’s not fair to criticize a half-built house because it’s drafty.
  • Gutenberg is currently written using REACT javascript. With Facebook’s recent move to relicense the project under the MIT license, Matt Mullenweg announced that WordPress.com and Gutenberg would be rewritten using a different library. Here’s more info on REACT and WordPress. This will surely delay the Gutenberg project for some time.

6. Gutenberg Blocks & Embeds

Gutenberg employs a number of ‘blocks’ you can use to customize your content and layout in the editor.

7. Some of the Good with Gutenberg

It’s a move forward for the WordPress visual editor.

  • The WordPress visual editor has been stagnant for years.
  • While it’s predictable, it’s not exactly a fantastic experience.
  • The goal is to have an interface that is more intuitive for new users like those offered by Wix and Squarespace.

Using HTML comments to store block info is clever.

  • Gutenberg stores information about blocks in HTML comments.
  • These comments are only seen on the back end of the site and are not rendered on live pages.

Disabling Gutenberg won’t break your site.

  • Unlike many other page editors, if you uninstall Gutenberg, you won’t break your website.
  • The special HTML comments are retained in the content so that you can reactivate Gutenberg without losing previously arranged blocks.
  • Note that without Gutenberg active, the HTML comments are rendered in page source. But since they are just comments, they are benign.

The copy and paste routine is well executed.

  • In earlier versions of Gutenberg, copy and paste made a mess. Formatting was lost in the process. Not any more.
  • Pasting paragraphs, lists, headings, etc. results in blocks of the appropriate type being automatically created by Gutenberg.
  • Text markup like bold and italics are also retained.

Solid HTML 5 output

  • Gutenberg blocks output content using HTML 5 tags like section and figure.
  • Using HTML 5 tags will help to future proof content created in Gutenberg.

You can write your own blocks.

  • Developers will be able to create their own blocks for customized content.
  • Here’s more information on writing a Gutenberg block

8. Some of the Bad with Gutenberg

No more composing in the browser.

  • Gutenberg’s UI is focused on content layout not content creation.
  • The days of sitting down and composing in the post window are gone (of course there is a question about how many people do this anyway).

The UI is a bit clunky.

  • It can take more clicks to do simple tasks. Updating a page now takes two clicks instead of one.
    Nondescript icons are used without much clue to their function.
  • The three columns formed by the admin menu, Gutenberg editor and Gutenberg sidebar get crowded and can be confusing to scroll around on smaller displays (like the 12” Macbook I’m writing this on).
  • Metaboxes are hidden under extended settings underneath and beside the editor.

No shortcodes in paragraphs.

  • Currently, shortcodes cannot be executed in text columns or paragraph blocks.
  • They must be placed in the shortcode block in order to work.
  • This can cause some problems if your shortcodes produce inline content like the year or an inline call to action.
  • Note that shortcodes in pages/posts will still work when Gutenberg is added to an existing site. So they’ve done a good job making sure existing things don’t break.

No images or other embeds in paragraphs.

  • In Gutenberg, you can’t wrap text around an image. Images have their own block.
  • Embeds like audio and video also require their own block. oEmbed from Youtube, Vimeo, etc. will no longer work in Gutenberg paragraphs or text columns

Significant accessibility issues (at least currently)

  • Currently there are major accessibility issues on the using the back end Gutenberg editor and on content output by it on the front end (like inline CSS).
  • The WP Accessibility team will certainly deal with these issues before release.
    • Accessibility is a big priority for WordPress in general.
    • There are serious questions about how inline CSS will be addressed since it’s currently stored in HTML comments and then rendered on the front end.

Older themes don’t style HTML 5 output.

  • Gutenberg blocks output content using HTML 5 tags like section and figure.
  • Many older themes don’t have CSS to address styling these tags, so margins and padding for these tags will probably be nonexistent.
  • Gutenberg doesn’t have its own stylesheet to account for this.

9. What’s Unresolved with Gutenberg? A Lot.

The relationship between the Gutenberg editor and themes.

  • As mentioned above, Gutenberg deals with content not styling (well, sort of – you can add background colors to blocks but this is executed as an inline style).
  • At present time, block padding and margins are completely unaddressed. This of course could change.
  • Most WordPress page builders allow fine-tuned control over rows, columns, spacing, etc. Gutenberg relies on the theme right now for all of this.
  • There is currently only a little info in the docs for Gutenberg theme support, including block support, wide image support and color palette support.
  • There is some info in the docs on applying styles to Gutenberg with stylesheets.
  • The problem here is that novice users (which is the audience Gutenberg is trying to help) usually have no idea about themes or their relationship to the WordPress system.

How will it be integrated into the WordPress core?

  • Currently, every indication is that Gutenberg will be part of core WordPress in version 5.0 set to be released in 2018.
  • Will it be enabled by default? Will we be able to disable it? These questions are unanswered at this point.
  • It could be executed like the REST API which is on by default, but easily disabled by a single-purpose plugin or various security plugins like iThemes Security.
    • Surely there will be a “Disable Gutenberg” block of code or plugin. Or perhaps popular page builders will include a disable Gutenberg option in their settings.
  • One of the best suggestions I’ve read is put it in Jetpack and let those who want it activate it from that platform.

When will the Gutenberg WordPress Editor be released?

  • Nobody knows (or at least it’s not been publicly stated).
  • In his article on REACT and WordPress, Matt Mullenweg said, “The Gutenberg team is going to take a step back and rewrite Gutenberg using a different library. It will likely delay Gutenberg at least a few weeks, and may push the release into next year.”
  • Many have had a strong reaction to that statement, like Yoast’s article on a Gutenberg alternative: “At Yoast, we were pretty shocked about these words. In its current form, Gutenberg is not ready -at all- for mainstream usage. In fact, we do not see it as being ready to be released anywhere in the first half of 2018. In our view, ready to be released also means that the community has had ample time to fix all of their integrations. In this point of time, it’s not possible for plugins at all to integrate with Gutenberg. How on earth should plugin authors be able to build their integrations within a few months? That’s not possible. At least not without breaking things.”

10. Articles of Note on The Gutenberg WordPress Editor

This is a collection of the best articles on Gutenberg that I’ve read to date.

Chris Lema talks about Gutenberg

Misunderstanding the goal of the Gutenberg Experience

Excerpt:

  • “If we’re going to solve a problem with this plugin, shouldn’t it be the cognitive dissonance that people have when they edit in one interface and see their work product appear in a different interface that doesn’t look like they thought it would?”

Beaver Builder’s Response to Gutenberg

August Update – 2.0, Themer, and Gutenberg, Oh My!

Excerpt:

  • “In short, we’re really excited and supportive of Gutenberg! Our hope is that the project continues to evolve into something Beaver Builder can embrace and extend. We’ve been collaborating with the core team on the project, and we’ve been speculating, both optimistically and cautiously, of Gutenberg’s potential impact on our business and the WordPress space in general. Imagine if Gutenberg “Blocks” we’re interchangeable with Beaver Builder modules, or if you could drag a saved row into a Gutenberg page. Or, Gutenberg’s text editor could be used inline in Beaver Builder. Lot’s of fun potential, right!?”

Elegant Themes

WordPress Responds to the Gutenberg Editor – A Review Roundup

Excerpt:

  • “When looking at the debate, it’s important to remember that every change will bring some inertia and resistance. WordPress needs to move forward in order to compete in a changing environment. However, that doesn’t mean that the concerns being voiced are not valid and don’t need to be addressed. Thankfully, the developers are doing their best to do just that. Yet, seeing how many people are concerned and feel left out, maybe some additional communication is necessary.”

A Rather Scathing Review on WPMU

This one pulls no punches.

Gutenberg Editor Review: Please Don’t Include This in WordPress Core

Excerpt:

  • “While the developers working on the Gutenberg editor plugin have obviously put a lot of work into creating the plugin and I commend them on their efforts so far, the truth is, this plugin is nowhere near ready to be included in WordPress and needs a lot more work, in particular, UX work.”

Yoast Suggests an Alternate Course for Gutenberg

Some significant problems are noted and solutions suggested.

An alternative approach to Gutenberg

Excerpt:

  • “We are very enthusiastic about the idea of blocks, but have strong concerns about some of the technical choices and the speed of the implementation process. We are also worried about the lack of priority given to accessibility issues in the project. But most importantly, we are very much concerned about the fact that plugins are not able to integrate with the new editor.”

Yoast Talks About Concepts for Integrating His Plugin with Gutenberg

Here’s a lead other plugin developers might follow.

Gutenberg: Concepts for integrating Yoast SEO

Excerpt:

  • “We started by breaking down all our features, and seeing where we could integrate them into Gutenberg. We don’t think holding on to a single, massive box below the editor will best serve our customers. We’d much rather integrate right where the action happens, and Gutenberg offers us that chance.”

Josh Pollock of Calera Forms

Five ways he wants to be proven wrong about Gutenberg:

Five Ways I’d Like To Be Proven Wrong About Gutenberg

Excerpt:

  • “This is a big decision about the future of WordPress. I believe that we as a community will get this right, but it’s going to take a lot of testing, iterating and discussion to get it right.”

The Best 1-Star Review of All

So What Should You Be Doing about Gutenberg?

Give it a try.

  • Get to know Gutenberg for yourself. Install it on a test site and give it a spin.
  • See what you like and don’t like about it.

Submit feedback.

  • Gutenberg recently added a Feedback link under it’s sidebar menu item.
  • Take some time and offer well-considered observations about your experience using Gutenberg.
  • “You guys are morons” is not what they’re looking for.

Don’t panic.

  • There’s a lot of thoughtful discussion happening by many good people on this.
  • Even if the version of Gutenberg that makes it to core totally stinks, there should be a way to disable it.

WordPress Plugin Roundup – October 2017

In this post, we round up the latest cool and useful (oh, and free!) WordPress plugins now available on the WordPress Plugin Directory. This month’s WordPress Plugin Roundup includes everything from an easy way to add icon widgets to a way to keep up with your post/page word counts.

1. iThemes Sales Accelerator New from iThemes!

iThemes Sales Accelerator

The iThemes Sales Accelerator plugin transforms your WordPress dashboard with dynamic reports so you can get detailed data and e-commerce insights about your WooCommerce store.

Nathan’s Notes:

  • The newest iThemes plugin extends default WooCommerce reports by reorganizing the most important sales data for your store with charts, tables and more in your WP dashboard
  • Has a free companion iOS app to connect with your WooCommerce store so you can check reports on the go
  • The Pro version includes more features like custom date filters for reports, additional reports, drag and drop and more.
  • A must-have tool for WooCommerce shops. You may have never seen your sales data quite like this before

2. Icon Widget

Icon Widget Plugin

The Icon Widget plugin creates a new WordPress widget that displays an icon, title and description. Select the size, color and text-alignment with easy to use dropdown options.

Nathan’s Notes:

  • If you’re not using a page builder with something like this build in already, it’s a pretty easy way to add a featured content block in a widgetized area.
  • Uses Fontawesome fonts.
  • You’ll probably want to tweak the styling a bit, but the CSS is simple.

3. CH Word Count

CH Word Count

The CH Word Count plugin will show you the total word count for all your posts and pages in the admin dashboard as well as in the overview tables of the posts and pages lists.

Nathan’s Notes:

  • Just install and activate and see a new column in the post list called “Words” that shows the number of words in each post.
  • Also adds a dashboard widget with total wordcounts sitewide. Nice for tracking your writing progress.
  • Very helpful for evaluating article length for SEO purposes.
  • Works for custom post types too.
  • Would be nice if the “Words” column was sortable, but it’s not currently.

4. Show Visitor IP

Nathan’s Notes:

  • Display current user information based on IP address throughout the site with shortcodes.
  • Can be a little creepy, but also helpful if you want your user to see that you can tell where they’re coming from.
  • Shortcode list:
    • [show_ip]
    • [svip_location type="countryCode"]
    • [svip_location type="region"]

5. Minimum Featured Image Size

Minimum Featured Image Size

With the Minimum Featured Image Size plugin, you can set the minimum width and height required for featured images. If the user tries to use an image that isn’t large enough they will see a friendly error message, and the post status will be reverted to ‘draft’.

Nathan’s Notes:

  • This could be a really helpful plugin to keep clients and new users aware of the need for larger featured images.
  • The error message could be a little more apparent.

6. Admin Select Box To Select2

Admin Select Box To Select2

The Admin Select Box To Select2 plugin is used to convert all simple select boxes to select2.

Nathan’s Notes:

  • Adds a searchable box to the top of all standard select boxes in the WordPress admin.

The Paste

With the The Paste plugin,  you can speed up your workflow by pasting images to the WordPress text editor. Copy image data from many desktop applications.

Nathan’s Notes:

  • Images pasted into the visual editor are uploaded to the media library and named pasted.png, pasted-1.png, pasted-2.png, etc.
  • Better naming conventions are on the developer’s to do list.
  • This is an interesting plugin that could improve workflow for many clients. It may not be quite ready for prime time yet, but it’s definitely one to watch!

Configure buttons including Font Sizes, Font Family, text and background colors, tables, etc. It will also let you enable the editor menu. It includes 15 plugins for TinyMCE that are automatically enabled or disabled depending on the buttons you have chosen.

Nathan’s Notes:

  • Brings much of the the control of TinyMCE Advanced to the standard TinyMCE editor.
  • Nice little plugin for turning off editor options that could get your client into trouble (like font color), or adding editor options they might need (like tables).

The Post Category Image With Grid and Slider plugin allows users to upload category image and display in grid and slider.

Nathan’s Notes:

  • Gives you quick access to turn on or off many “hidden” features of WordPress.
  • There are likely quite a few things you could disable and incrementally improve the speed and security of your website.

Free Science WordPress Themes Where To Find Them

Free Science WordPress Themes

  If you love to blog about anything science related, themes that revolve around the science plateau are very hard to come by.  Now saying that wordpress is the serious player over blogger by far, but they don’t offer science themes, we have put an end to that.  Our team has dedicated themselves in making some serious niche themes in the science field.  By the reaction of the public they seem to love them.  There are countless two and three column themes with incredible graphics.  Now what we did was went a step further, we made sure all themes were SEO’d from soup to nuts.  Not many free themes you see on the web do this.  Coding took much longer but we feel was well worth it.  We analyzed these before we listed them to the public.  The whole process was very time consuming, but we did this for a few reasons, a few years ago we tried a few free themes that we found and noticed that search engines would’nt really crawl the site after an article was published, we disected the coding and found that they were really junk.  So our team went to work and built some of the best free wordpress themes you will ever find.  We also carry premium themes but to be honest the only difference is the graphics and coding of them, they are 5% more search engine friendly.  Not that much of a difference but on our scale the free themes rank at 96% and the premium themes rank at 99.2%  these are much higher numbers then many php premium scripts.  Anotherwords you will NOT find a better seo theme out there.  Professionalism and dedication went into building these. 

 Health Theme Niches Great Themes For Categories

  You will notice on some of the best laid out graphics on any website.  To give you an idea they did’nt come from some photoshop these are paid pics that we initiated into the scenes, as well as made some necessary adjustments to align for better eye candy.  You know if the reader passes you by it’s because of the initial looks of the website.  We took that into consideration before releasing these.  From past experiences as a web designer we’ve seen some of the worst of the worst. Now from a professional standpoint-it does’nt take long to make corrections in this field.  Having a great looking blog is what it’s all about.  Everything was checked and rechecked for inclusion into our site.  We run a beta test on how a theme will perform in search engines before we list it.  The science theme is one of the most particuliar and diverse themes to have accomplished.  We had to take many things in to account,  with so many niches in this category, we had to really study the field before starting this project.  You can consider science being studying the human body or forensics or anthropology.  I think you get where I’m coming from, so we in no way had the time to cover each one so we combined some of the most popular and that’s where the graphics started.  Now we will be adding more on a monthly basis so stay tunes if you don’t see something you like, but keep this in mind, in other categories you will see right sidebar and left sidebar themes as well as widget ready and 3 and 4 column themes.  Check these before you leave as we might have used a specific graphic on these themes.  You will notice the colors are somewhat clearer and crisper then you might see elsewhere.  Remember the Science theme is one of the hardest to develop no matter if it’s paid or free.  Personally I think these are a great selection and we know how powerful the seo capabilities are.  So in lamens terms if you don’t like the graphics you can always change them they are very easy to do and you can do that in the header section.  One tip in getting maximum traffic is you can add many plugins to the site, and twitter tools is one priority you should use.  Once a post is made it will be automatically sent to twitter thus giving you a huge advantage for receiving targeted visitors.  Once your in the admin section of the blog go to where you see plugins and you can add any plugins you would like, we recommend google sitemap and seo plugin!  These will maximize the potential of your blog.  You can do so much with our free science themes.  You can use as many as you like.

WordPress Blogging Tip – Get Known in a Huge Way Using Social Networks

Get your WordPress blog known quickly and in a huge way by using  the Social Networks – like Twitter and Facebook. You can have your posts go automatically to both so your friends and followers will be alerted when you have posted something new. 

Use Twitter Tools in your WordPress blog to have your posts go to Twitter automatically,  Then hook up Twitter and Facebook with the Twitter application in Facebook.  Another great social network to use is FriendFeed.  It’s really gaining in popularity and just recently it was announced that Facebook bought it.  It’s really up and coming and you can set it up to get your tweets automatically – all of them.  Not just your blog posts.  It’s easy to build a presence there too with the auto tweet feature.

Use the WordPress plugin Share This to let your readers send your posts around the net to their favorite social networks and social bookmarking sites.  In Share This your reader can also e-mail your post to their friends!  Three automatic ways to get your posts out on the web and all you have to do is set them up once.

After your post has gone to Twitter and Facebook, go to your account in each network and talk about your post.  Since people are on the social networks at different times of the day, it is fine to talk about what has already been sent automatically.  Even your followers and friends don’t see everything that appears in their stream.

Ask your friends and followers to retweet for you.  When you can get people to retweet for you, you put yourself in front of all their followers too.  A few retweets can get you in front of many thousands of people and get new followers for you too.

Don’t neglect the social networks as time wasters.  They are not.
