WordPress 5.0 is here


The new Gutenberg editor is now live in WordPress. Here’s what you need to know if you’re thinking of upgrading.

As previously covered in our blog post on Gutenberg, WordPress 5.0 has now released. It’s a big update.

Our quick initial tests suggest that the final release of the new editor – which looks pretty slick, incidentally – does support our framework. However, it drops support for various helpers which we’ve added over the years – ie. our column editor, and custom formatting options – although in the main these are replaced in the new editor, We haven’t fully tested this with WooCommerce either for eCommerce clients.

We’re going to spend some time in early 2019 retooling aspects of our framework to make sure that we’re able to take full advantage of the new editor with ongoing sites. We’d still recommend an ‘approach with caution’ approach if you’re looking to upgrade.

If you’ve upgraded already and you’re now consumed with regret, it’s OK – you don’t have to force the upgrade yet. WordPress have released the Classic Editor as a plugin for WordPress 5.0, which you can download by clicking ‘Plugins’ > ‘Add New’ and searching for Classic Editor.
