November 10 & 11, 2018 at the Washington State Convention Center
There will be speakers, workshops, a help desk, and more.
Today’s Topic: How to Introduce Your Clients to Gutenberg
Several mentioned they are adding classical editor plugin now so when 5.0 comes out it will keep the settings.
- Clients on Divi will be fine – it’s integrated and working
- custom sites with Advanced Custom fields – will disable Gutenburg for now
- For custom sites moving forward – will use ACF Flex Content Module
Beaver Builder has been working with Gutenberg for a while now.
Category and Tag meta boxes are a bit buried with Gutenberg.
Clients -> Will use mostly for blog posts.
WPHelp plugin is a great tool to give clients help info on the dashboard. It’s no longer being updated but works fine.
“I’ve installed classic editor on every site I maintain.”
Release date? Mid-November-ish
It will overwrite the current editor unless you install the classic editor plugin.
WordPress database architecture is not changing.
Side conversation about synching staging and production environments – merging database changes:
