I just upgraded our weblog to WordPress 5.0 and the upgrade went well without any issues, just as I am used to with WordPress.
The most important change of this new version is that there is a complete new editor for writing the articles added.
This new “Gutenberg Editor” is block orientated and is more or less “what you see is what you get”.
I am fully aware that this new editor will take time to get used to… Ergo: I need time to get used to it!
By now I found one issue and that is cannot be displayed centered anymore. This might be an issue with the theme that is used.
I will look if I can come with a solution for that. If not, I may have to look for a theme that supports this new editor fully, which would mean that we can use all the new features offered through the new editor. So maybe I will have a look at a different theme anyway.
I would like to encourage the authors of our blog to play around with the Gutenberg editor to get familiar with it. And if there are any issues, please let me know.
For the time being the old editor, refereed to as the “Classic editor” is still available to use. Although I have to say that I have no idea how long this will be the case.
