Let's explore Gutenberg - Improving the WordPress editing experience.

183 views

Published on

WordPress developers are currently exploring changes to the editing experience in WordPress. The name of this project is Gutenberg, and you can download a plugin to test what this new experience may become.

At the WP Meetup in Melbourne in July we introduced Gutenberg and sent out a call for developers to download, install and test out this editor and provide feedback to the Gutenberg team. We'll be doing the same for the User contingent next month.

Feel free to use these slides to introduce Gutenberg to your meetup groups, the more people we have installed and using it to test the experience and offer feedback, the better it will be before it lands in core.
