“Gutenberg” is a codename for a whole new paradigm for creating with WordPress, that aims to revolutionize the entire publishing experience as much as Johannes Gutenberg did the printed word. The project is following a four-phase process that will touch major pieces of WordPress — Editing, Customization, Collaboration, and Multilingual.

Following the introduction of post block editing in December 2018, Gutenberg later introduced full site editing (FSE) in 2021, which shipped with WordPress 5.9 in early 2022.

What Does Gutenberg Do?

Gutenberg is WordPress’s “block editor”, and introduces a modular approach to modifying your entire site. Edit individual content blocks on posts or pages. Add and adjust widgets. Even design your site headers, footers, and navigation with full site editing support.

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 be added, arranged, and rearranged, allowing users to create media-rich content and site layouts in a visually intuitive way — and without workarounds like shortcodes or custom HTML and PHP.

We’re always hard at work refining the experience, creating more and better blocks, and laying the groundwork for future phases of work. Each WordPress release includes stable features from the Gutenberg plugin, so you don’t need to install the plugin to benefit from the work being done here.

Early Access

Are you a tech-savvy early adopter who likes testing bleeding-edge and experimental features, and isn’t afraid to tinker with features that are still in active development? If so, this beta plugin gives you access to the latest Gutenberg features for block and full site editing, as well as a peek into what’s to come.

Contributors Wanted

For the adventurous and tech-savvy, the Gutenberg plugin gives you the latest and greatest feature set, so you can join us in testing and developing bleeding-edge features, playing around with blocks, and maybe get inspired to contribute or build your own blocks.

¿Tengo que usar el plugin Gutenberg para tener acceso a estas características?

Not necessarily. Each version of WordPress after 5.0 has included features from the Gutenberg plugin, which are known collectively as the WordPress Editor. You are likely already benefitting from stable features!

But if you want cutting edge beta features, including more experimental items, you will need to use the plugin. You can read more here to help decide whether the plugin is right for you.

I don't know why anyone would publish a software that is not even beta when it comes to stability and being bug-free. Just now I was trying to edit some links on my page, and once I use Ctrl-V to paste a link, the small dialog to enter links closes without accepting the pasted link, and then I can't edit the link anymore at all. Also, when I used arrow keys to navigate around my text, Gutenberg will scroll all over the place. This actually makes me angry: after years of development, the most basic and simple operations cause bugs. I have no words for how low this editor rates in my opinion and wish I could give 0 stars instead of 1. The only plugins I use is Advanced Editor Tools (which alegedly works with Gutenberg), and Yoast SEO. Another thought: more than half of the people who reviewed Gutenberg gave it only 1 star. Yet Wordpress puts it out as the standard editor - why???

What a useless pattern added in the new wordpress update. I showed to my costumer to reduce my development time. But all are useless. 🙁

If I could give this negative stars I would. Buttons kept moving locations on me or just straight up disappear. Blocks would break and I would have to restore them only to have them not function the way they should. Popups are always in the way when trying to edit blocks. Simply put. I spent too much time with this editor and it is time to move on to another one.

Why this even exist? Everything I try is way too complex to achieve with this plugin, that's the reason users rollback to Classic Editor or use another like Elementor or WP Bakery.
