In a few weeks or so there will be an update to WP 5.0 bringing a brandnew editor "Gutenberg".
It is said that there will be greater difficulties with many plugins.
What about Genesis and Child themes? Will they be compatible with Gutenberg?
Is there some information available?
good question! Surprised that you had NO response...
I have installed the plugin Classic Editor to all my sites to hopefully prevent any problems while I learn to use Gutenberg. I'm investigating Classic Editor Addon plugin also; it may be necessary also.
I'm doing the unthinkable and running it on some production sites -- granted, they're small, with very little traffic, and I'm a reckless old bat!
But so far, no issues.
More concerned with learning enough JS to build new blocks. 😜
Sharing the good news about the wonders of modern CSS and the split-step. Either one should get you moving fast. 😀
I found out that using Gutenberg editor there are some features missing that are coming from certain plugins.
For example I'm using a sidebar-plugin that is offering a sidebar within classic editor to select an individual sidebar for a certain post or page.
There are some other plugins that don't appear in Gutenberg either.
So I have to use the classic editor to avoid missing any comforts coming from plugins.
