Gutenberg Will Bring Us a ‘Drag-and-Drop’ WordPress Editing Experience

 

The architecture of the WordPress platform is quite user-friendly already, with an extensive number of themes – free to use, or paid for a more professional appearance – and all kinds of options to build your own website and manage content online by yourself. Creating a dream website does take time and a bit more technical knowledge however, even with a platform like WordPress. That’s where Gutenberg comes in.

Gutenberg has been under development for several years already. Until recently, it was just a WordPress feature plugin, but the block-based editing interface will be integrated now in the newest version of the popular CMS and website building system, WordPress version 5.

With Gutenberg, we’re promised to have a WordPress editing experience with easy customization options to fill in the finer details. Gutenberg would make the WordPress platform operate, more or less, like a ‘drag-and-drop’ website builder with movable building blocks. In the WordPress 5 release, Gutenberg will become the default editor. Websites updated to WordPress 5 will be transitioned to the new editor.

TinyMCE has been the default WordPress content editor for many years but soon Gutenberg will replace TinyMCE as the default content editor. If you want to know what Gutenberg will bring us exactly and what the Managed WordPress Hosting community thinks of Gutenberg, take a look at these VIDEOS published on HostingJournalist.com recently:
