Our Thoughts on Gutenberg

  1. Gutenberg is officially released. Here’s what we know… 01:07
    • The “State of the Word” address at WordCamp US really showed why the Gutenberg update is important.
    • Many functionalities that we take for granted (due to being familiar with page builders) are actually very difficult to do in the basic WordPress editor.
    • WordPress powers 32% of websites on the internet. A lot of these are DIY users and this will be a huge improvement for them.
    • Gutenberg will make WordPress much more user friendly for DIY users.
  2. It’s got a long way to go, but it’s a great start. 06:25
    • This growth will most likely be driven by third party companies and products for Gutenberg.
  3. What does this mean for page builders? 07:25
    • Short answer: Nothing.
    • Page builders will continue to thrive. They serve a different purpose.
    • Gutenberg will keep these premium page builders on their toes, which is good! It means that these products will have to be very high quality.
