Trying Gutenberg with WordPress 5

Having used WordPress for a number of years now it’s time for a new chapter. This is the first of my three blogs I’m upgrading to WordPress 5, which includes the change to Gutenberg as the editor.

Before I upgrade the other two blogs I’m going to gain some initial experience using Gutenberg on this blog, just to make sure I’m ready before upgrading the other blogs.

Very first impression is positive, it looks fresh and clean and at least writing a simple post like this one seems quite straightforward.

Only minor ‘issues’ I’ve spotted so far are that there is no tag cloud for frequently used tags (which I quite liked in the old editor) and so far I haven’t found an easy option to insert special characters.

More to come as learn about the new editor.
