“Gutenberg” is a codename for a whole new paradigm in WordPress site building and publishing, that aims to revolutionize the entire publishing experience as much as Gutenberg did the printed word. Right now, the project is in the first phase of a four-phase process that will touch every piece of WordPress — Editing, Customization, Collaboration, and Multilingual — and is focused on a new editing experience, the block editor.

The block editor introduces a modular approach to pages and posts: each piece of content in the editor, from a paragraph to an image gallery to a headline, is its own block. And just like physical blocks, WordPress blocks can added, arranged, and rearranged, allowing WordPress users to create media-rich pages in a visually intuitive way — and without work-arounds like shortcodes or custom HTML.

The block editor first became available in December 2018, and we’re still hard at work refining the experience, creating more and better blocks, and laying the groundwork for the next three phases of work. The Gutenberg plugin gives you the latest version of the block editor so you can join us in testing bleeding-edge features, start playing with blocks, and maybe get inspired to build your own.

How can I send feedback or get help with a bug?

We’d love to hear your bug reports, feature suggestions and any other feedback! Please head over to the GitHub issues page to search for existing issues or open a new one. While we’ll try to triage issues reported here on the plugin forum, you’ll get a faster response (and reduce duplication of effort) by keeping everything centralized in the GitHub repository.

What’s Next for the Project?

The four phases of the project are Editing, Customization, Collaboration, and Multilingual. You can hear more about the project and phases from Matt in his State of the Word talks for 2019 and 2018. Additionally you can follow updates in the Make WordPress Core blog.

A feature plugin to see all enhacements before it comes to WordPress.org. Good work Guys!

And just integrate into gutenberg editor as new blocks. Yes, it still has it's flaws, but since the damage is already done and it is forced into the core, at least it goes in the right direction.

…even considered signing off this utter travesty of an editor? It. Simply. Does. Not. Work. Ever. It's as if someone were bribing WordPress to destroy its own platform by alienating every user it has ever had. A far, far better thing to have done would have been to bring the underlying platform into the 21st century and create an effective, coherent and consistent interface for the core platform and plugins. I see WordPress going the way of Movable Type before very long.

Why is WordPress core working so hard to alienate it's base users, developers. How many other CMS have been smarter then their users to the point they were replaced. Does WordPress forgot it was a branch off a failed platform (that platform did not listen either) Those who forget history, repeat history. I hope someone listens and does not force this down our throat.
