The Future of WordPress is Here

The Future of WordPress is Here

Launching tomorrow is WordPress 5.0. Among some of the smaller changes, the most notable is Gutenberg. The Gutenberg editor features a markedly different interface than the text-centric experience that WordPress users are accustomed to. The Gutenberg editor incorporates columns, multi-media options and other ways to vary the layout of a page or post. 

The Gutenberg block editor will become the default post and page editor for all sites running WordPress 5.0 or higher. Once you update to 5.0, you’ll have access to all the new features and editing experiences Gutenberg offers.

Anyone seeking to update to 5.0 but not ready for the Gutenberg block editor can install WordPress’ Classic Editor plugin to have an “indistinguishable” experience from version 4.9.8 for posting and editing.

If you upgrade to WordPress 5.0 and your pages are broken, or the layout is missed INSTALL THE WORDPRESS CLASSIC EDITOR. This will restore your pages.

Our suggestion is waiting until the new year or WordPress 5.0.1 to upgrade your website. This allows WordPress the needed time to work out any bugs and plugin developers to address any issues.

We recognise some of our customers may need additional assistance during this transition. Don’t hesitate to reach out, but please understand our response times may be longer than usual as we try to help everyone navigate the changes gracefully.
