And How Is This an Improvement
Thought I’d give Gutenberg a try again, and again I can only conclude that Mullenweg’s Mafia have taken things just a tad too far.
What used to be done simply and efficiently is now scattered hither and yon in all sorts of different places, and asking for entirely too many steps to accomplish. To be honest with you, I expect there to be a huge backlash come WP 5, and plugins such as the Classic Editor will get downloaded enmass.
What we’re going to see is another “New Coke”, an event where people Mullenweg and friends thought would love their new toy, only to find people heading to alternatives they actually find useful.
Disappointment is Coming
And expect a number of plugins for Gutenberg and a number of blocks to disappear, in as much as they are just irrelevant. The old editor will be back, or else something like it, and work will be done to allow bloggers to add things such as the all in one image/text block without all the foo-for-all Gutenberg requires.
You want to change the world, keep it small and let your successors carry on after you.
