Yes, you’re reading this right. We – ThemeIsle – are probably one of the few teams that have decided to use the WordPress block editor, Gutenberg, to build the core of our pages during our big redesign a couple of months ago. Some things worked well, and other things went wrong.
But as you can imagine, it’s a little more complicated than that, and we believe that you could benefit from our experience.
But first, just in case you’re not familiar with us, let me explain who we are and why you should care?
ThemeIsle is the company behind some of the most popular themes in the WordPress directory. And yes, I have data to back me up! Just take a peek into the Popular tab of the WordPress directory. Long story short, a company that makes a living by building themes should also have a pretty neat website of their own. That’s where the Gutenberg ordeal comes into play.
About Gutenberg, many of us know what it is, and our experiences with it have been either more or less successful. The WordPress team has been promoting it as the next big thing in website building, but is that really the case? More importantly, do you actually believe this enough to risk your next project and potentially waste hours of your time trying to build things in Gutenberg vs. doing it in, say, Elementor?
This post should give you an answer and save you some headaches.
