Mitchell D. Miller author of Sociopathic Surgeon on April 6, 2012 at Common Grounds - Lexington, KY Hello. Nice to meet you, but I am not your next Tampa WordPress developer.

WordPress co-founder Matt Mullenweg presented nine priorities for 2019 WordPress. He wants WordPress users to edit documents and widgets with the Gutenberg editor.

I do not like using the Gutenberg editor. I plan to stop using WordPress.

Why isn’t the Gutenberg editor a plugin?

I maintain a site with Gutenberg for testing. Gutenberg is hard to use, and adds “junk” to your HTML.

For example, a Gutenberg “blockquote” is <blockquote class="wp-block-quote">

Is there a wp-block-quote class in your stylesheet?

Gutenberg reminds me on Windows 95. I made a service call 20+ years ago to an office where six employees were unable to work from Windows 95 errors. Imagine six unproductive employees trying to use Gutenberg.

I still update my Quick Mail plugin, but I plan to stop using WordPress.

Recent WordPress releases added useless features that I must remove. This site has six active plugins, to remove features.

WordPress makes be block the REST API and xmlrpc from intruders. REST API provides too much information about sites, too easily. I never used xmlrpc in 10+ years of WordPress.

I can install the Classic Editor plugin to keep Gutenberg out of my life. Plugin “will be fully supported and maintained until at least 2022.” What happens after that? Will I have to stop updating sites?

What about themes? Will theme authors support Classic Editor and Gutenberg, or will theme updates break sites?

Nobody knows.

calmPress will be a good alternative soon.

I hope you find another Tampa WordPress developer.
