For those still in the dark, WordPress 5.0 will bring HUGE changes to the post editor. Dubbed Gutenberg, the new WP post editor replaces the entire “classic” post editing screen. So as of WordPress 5.0 and beyond, the “Edit Post” screen will be completely replaced by a giant WYSIWYG content builder called “Gutenberg”. So much more is being replaced than just the content editor. The list of things that are replaced by Gutenberg include the RTE/Visual Editor, Plain Text Editor, Custom Fields, Custom Post Status, and much more.
New Plugin: Disable Gutenberg
To help the community with the transition into the Gutenberg (G7G) arena, I’ve written a plugin called Disable Gutenberg. It’s a simple plugin that’s super easy to use, and focused entirely on one thing: disable Gutenberg and restore the Classic Editor.
- Disable Gutenberg completely (all post types)
- Disable Gutenberg only on specific post types
- Disable Gutenberg for specific user roles
With Disable Gutenberg, you control when the new editor is rolled out to your clients.
