In this week’s edition of Blogging Insights, Dr. Tanya wants to know what we think of the WordPress Gutenberg (aka Block) editor.
What is your experience with the Gutenberg editor?
I use my iPhone for blogging and I use the Classic editor. I tried using the Block editor on my iPhone, but I’ve found it very difficult to use because of the relatively small amount of screen “real estate.” Perhaps if I were using a laptop with a regular, full-size screen, my experience with the Block editor would be more positive, but I don’t, so my experience attempting to use it on an iPhone has been quite negative.
Do you prefer it over the previous editor?
No, for the reasons noted in my previous answer.
If you are not satisfied with Gutenberg, what suggestions can you make to WordPress to enhance your blogging experience?
My advice to WordPress is to continue to offer and support the Classic editor as an option for those of us who prefer it over the Block editor. If the day ever comes when WordPress no longer offers the Classic editor, that will be the day I will either find a different platform for my blog or I will just stop blogging.
