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.

  1. Clients on Divi will be fine – it’s integrated and working
  2. custom sites with Advanced Custom fields – will disable Gutenburg for now
  3. For custom sites moving forward – will use ACF Flex Content Module
