I’ve built many WordPress sites over the years and I have to say one of my least favourite features has always been the text editor. In a nutshell, it was slow and kind of sucked and made it difficult to do much other than, well, edit text.
Excited To Try
I’ve played around a little with the new Gutenberg editor as it progressed from Alpha to Beta to Live. Honestly though, I’ve always been too busy to really spend enough time on it.
It had great promise right from the start, and so I was excited to finally get to build a new site from scratch using it.
First Outing And Already Impressed
And I have to say, I am impressed. It’s much faster than the old text ‘classic’ editor and much much more flexible. While it doesn’t go everything that the likes of Elementor and Visual Composer do (yet), it certainly gives them a run for their money for fairly basic sites.
The new layout also means much less scrolling up and down which I have always hated.
And did I mention it’s fast! Even when saving it seems almost instant!
Six out of five stars WordPress!
