WordPress recently did a major upgrade to their CMS and forced all installations to default to the Gutenberg Editor in preference to the traditional Tiny MCE Editor.
The idea behind this was good (in theory), the execution and ‘editor shock’ has resulted in somewhat of a backlash.
From my humble standpoint – Gutenberg made for lots of bloat, completely cocked up my work flow and made publishing slow and a pain in the proverbial (which could be as a result of the cock up!).
Anyway – a search in the WordPress Plugin Depository reveals that I am not ALONE.
A search for ‘disable Gutenberg’ reveals that more than ONE MILLION sites have installed a plugin to DISABLE Gutenberg as opposed to the 300 000 that installed the Gutenberg editor before the release of this latest version.
