Shared vs. Managed
- WP Engine
WordPress.com – If Jetpack is installed, Gutenberg plugin will be loaded.
Block-based themes with existing page builders: install Classic Editor and use that until the kinks are worked out with Gutenberg.
Wise to install Classic Editor on all client sites and use that until kinks are resolved.
Plan for 5.0
- Will automatically disable Gutenberg plug-in
- Release: Nov. 19, 2018
- Secondary Release: Jan. 22, 2019
- WP 5.1 potential release: March 2019
- PHP v7.5.3 due to be released soon
- Beaver Builder – should be OK to use with Gutenberg
Questions to Ask a Designer and Developer
- Will you teach me how to use WP?
