Gutenberg sounds like the place that a hard fought battle took place in Europe maybe during the “Great Wars” or during the Middle Ages but Gutenberg is not connected to history its the name given to the new WordPress editor that WordPress 5 brings to the blogosphere. 

I fully expected and was prepared to backup before upgrading, I have multiple sites so I had tested the upgrade on other sites.  I figure though the best way to fix something is to break it first so I went ahead with it and upgraded https://matthewleffler.com to the newest and greatest and YES … it broke a lot of stuff.  I’m using it now to post, and I can add stuff to the site, I just cant really edit anything like the homepage or any post or page made with the previous editor I used.

I suspect Gutenberg will allow you to edit previous classic editor pages and posts with no fuss, but if you use a 3rd party plugin builder I’d recommend caution.  Sometimes when I entered a page I made in a third party page builder it would show in classic form as the familar collection of short codes and strings of letters that arent even in html or css or php for that matter.  Its not the 11th hour here, I just suspect the association between the 3rd party builder and building pages has been severed.  

I expect that a reinstall of the builder or an update from the builder will resolve this issue. Now some of you may be in trouble though.  What if your builder came with the theme you may have purchased?  As in you didnt purchase the builder…if you have been able to update it then I’d hope you’re headed for smooth calm waters, but of the themes I own thats not the case with any one of them.  Gutenberg therefore may be headed to breaking all the themes we’ve gone out and bought.

Now Gutenberg is associated with a battle.  I personally didnt like it in WordPress 4.  My reasons are that as they add features in a sandbox play pen I cant seem to break out of the play pen and do the actual coding I know.  Its been my main distaste for Divi and any builder.  They make it easier by making it less accessible.

So backup your site.

If you used a third party builder proceed with caution or wait for updates from your builder’s builder. 🙂 

And if you knew html and css and built your site in the classic browser you’re good to go!   

I am going to be able to get out of having to update my homepage for bit. :-). Thanks Gutenberg.  I’m not the only one who is a detractor of this editor.  Most of you all are too.  The WordPress plugin rating is pretty damning.

Gutenberg Rating Sucks

This frees you from yet another site that provides the same study advice and the same generic understanding of being a college student. We want this site to be relevant, timely and useful to the Malone University student community.

RIYADH (Reuters) – SoftBank’s Vision Fund has built up a portfolio of about 65 companies so far, managing partner Saleh Romeih said on Tuesday.

The $93-billion Vision Fund has investments in companies including ride-hailing firm Uber Technologies Inc [UBER.UL] and shared-office space firm WeWork.

Romeih reiterated at an investment conference in Riyadh that the Vision Fund was planning to open an office in Saudi Arabia.

SoftBank Group Corp (9984.T) Chief Executive Masayoshi Son has cancelled a speaking engagement at the Future Investment Initiative conference in Saudi Arabia, a source close to the matter told Reuters.
