    So it seems for few years this is going to be like WordPress vs PageBuilders. While WordPress’s Pagebuilders have been doing a fantastic job which other CMS’s & Platforms envy, it would be interesting to see how FSE evolves and eats up their share. However, WordPress is going into a space where existing businesses are going to be impacted and I am afraid this will not come as a good news for many businesses.

      I absolutely agree. You can already see that when new wordpress updates are promoted, all page builder struggle to update too and there will be even more update issues with sites built with all the bigger page builders out there.
      In my opinion, also in terms of site speed, publishers should already switch to the gutenberg block editor NOW which has the advantage of saving the time to adjust pages in the future while already profiting from having a speed advantage because Gutenberg is a core wordpress application. Since there is no “tranformation” tool around and probably will never, webmasters can get help through services like http://www.builder2gutenberg.com

    In a few years to come, there will be a power tussle between WordPress page builders and the popularly dominated page builders in the market.

    This is quite good though.

    For WordPress users who are quite stuck and in love with the Classic Editor, there is a new competitor in the air, and I guess everyone should begin to familiarize themselves with the Gutenberg block editor, which is quite cool and easy to use.

      Sorry. It may be easy for you to use but it impacts negatively the way I work. And for some good reason: it needs more clicks and manipulations for the same result. A tool that slows the way I work is not a good tool in my opinion.

        Maybe the Advanced Editor Tools (Formerly TinyMCE Advanced) plugin might work for you. It has an option to open every post (or page) with the classic block by default.

        Alternatively you can switch to the Classic Editor entirely. But this default Classic Block (default meaning you don’t have to select it every time, which is extra clicks) might be worth checking out. It adds TinyMCE extras as well.

    With each new WordPress update Gutenberg block editor is coming up with new features. For publishers it will be useful to plan and switch to the Gutenberg block editor. As Gutenberg block editor is part of WordPress Core. Once the full site editing is going to be a game changer. Gutenberg block editor is making the existing WordPress page builders look outdated.

    Gutenberg block editor is a lot faster than the most of the page builders. is is the right time for the existing WordPress page builders need to adapt and take drastic changes.

  5. Gutenberg Feedback

    Gutenberg slows the editing/writing of the content process, but it makes building sites faster. These are the trade-offs, WP should not longer be a blogging/publishing platform, but more a building platform. It just changed the targets.

    What I think is critical now is to somehow use modes/options to help those people with already established, built sites to have an editor that is fast to type and edit like the Classic one so that the 3-4 step multiclick is again 1 click away like in the Classic Editor. These should be optional or achieved throw modes but it needs to be there.

    I am an editor, my site is already built, I don’t need anything else than a traditional editing and publishing. Using blocks to publish with 3-4 step multiclick is slowing my work considerably.

    PS. Something do something about the huge latency in Gutenberg, it is unbearable on bigger sites.
