I’m going to be the person who likes the new editor in WordPress when they take it live in WP 5.0. Right now it’s available to demo but it’s a bit buggy and the reviews are people hate it and say it’s a UX fail.
I don’t think it’s a UX fail – it just takes a bit of tinkering to learn something new.
So next I’ll be trying it on a base install to see if it was a plugin conflict or something server based. Actually it says to not use it on a live site yet but I’ve got a site that’s a play site that I use for this type of thing (I want to see where things break on a real server with real plugins and real content.)
It’s not ready for prime time because of some things it still breaks (settings overlapping for example) but I look forward to using it once it’s ready.
- Editable permalink is something that seems to be on the list of things they are aware of.
- It seems that Gutenberg won’t update once the post is saved. Going to test that now. Or there’s a problem with taking it to a private post and back to public. Need to search a bit more on Git because I’m not seeing this one.
- Versioning… where is that going to live? I like having the ability to roll back posts to a previous version in case someone really mucks something upand I’m not seeing that in the current version of Gutenberg.
