Gutenberg: A new, modern publishing experience
In a nutshell, Gutenberg is an enhancement to WordPress that has been in the works for a couple years. You’ll be able to make your website edits in a simplified, yet more robust and intuitive drag-and-drop format, with block components.
Developers at Vivid Image and around the world work hard to make sure that WordPress usability stays as simple and user-friendly as website owners have come to rely on it to be.
As with all technology enhancements, there is an extensive testing period, and that’s the phase WordPress appears to be in with Gutenberg for the time being. We are on top of these developments and will provide more information, as it becomes helpful and useful to you. Until then, rest assured we are monitoring, reading, and learning so we’re ready to continue coaching and assisting you to get the most out of your cutting edge website.
