The block editor was introduced in core WordPress with version 5.0 but the Gutenberg project will ultimately impact the entire publishing experience including customization (the next focus area). This beta plugin allows you to test bleeding-edge features around editing and customization projects before they land in future WordPress releases.



「编辑器将创建一个新的页面、文章建设经验,使写丰富的文章毫不费力。为了编辑经验变得更简单,“区块”将会取代当今的短代码,自定义 HTML 或“神秘肉”嵌入模式。」
—Matt Mullenweg

One thing that sets WordPress apart from other systems is that it allows you to create as rich a post layout as you can imagine — but only if you know HTML and CSS and build your own custom theme. By thinking of the editor as a tool to let you write rich posts and create beautiful layouts, we can transform WordPress into something users love WordPress, as opposed something they pick it because it’s what everyone else uses.

Gutenberg looks at the editor as more than a content field, revisiting a layout that has been largely unchanged for almost a decade.This allows us to holistically design a modern editing experience and build a foundation for things to come.

Here’s why we’re looking at the whole editing screen, as opposed to just the content field:

  1. The block unifies multiple interfaces. If we add that on top of the existing interface, it would add complexity, as opposed to remove it.
  2. By revisiting the interface, we can modernize the writing, editing, and publishing experience, with usability and simplicity in mind, benefitting both new and casual users.
  3. When singular block interface takes center stage, it demonstrates a clear path forward for developers to create premium blocks, superior to both shortcodes and widgets.
  4. Considering the whole interface lays a solid foundation for the next focus, full site customization.
  5. Looking at the full editor screen also gives us the opportunity to drastically modernize the foundation, and take steps towards a more fluid and JavaScript powered future that fully leverages the WordPress REST API.


Blocks are the unifying evolution of what is now covered, in different ways, by shortcodes, embeds, widgets, post formats, custom post types, theme options, meta-boxes, and other formatting elements. They embrace the breadth of functionality WordPress is capable of, with the clarity of a consistent user experience.

Imagine a custom “employee” block that a client can drag to an About page to automatically display a picture, name, and bio. A whole universe of plugins that all extend WordPress in the same way. Simplified menus and widgets. Users who can instantly understand and use WordPress — and 90% of plugins. This will allow you to easily compose beautiful posts like this example.

Check out the FAQ for answers to the most common questions about the project.


Posts are backwards compatible, and shortcodes will still work. We are continuously exploring how highly-tailored metaboxes can be accommodated, and are looking at solutions ranging from a plugin to disable Gutenberg to automatically detecting whether to load Gutenberg or not. While we want to make sure the new editing experience from writing to publishing is user-friendly, we’re committed to finding a good solution for highly-tailored existing sites.

Gutenberg 的开发计划阶段

Gutenberg has three planned stages. The first, aimed for inclusion in WordPress 5.0, focuses on the post editing experience and the implementation of blocks. This initial phase focuses on a content-first approach. The use of blocks, as detailed above, allows you to focus on how your content will look without the distraction of other configuration options. This ultimately will help all users present their content in a way that is engaging, direct, and visual.

These foundational elements will pave the way for stages two and three, planned for the next year, to go beyond the post into page templates and ultimately, full site customization.

Gutenberg is a big change, and there will be ways to ensure that existing functionality (like shortcodes and meta-boxes) continue to work while allowing developers the time and paths to transition effectively. Ultimately, it will open new opportunities for plugin and theme developers to better serve users through a more engaging and visual experience that takes advantage of a toolset supported by core.

Where can I read more about Gutenberg?


I hoped that the kinks would be worked out by now, but there are still tons of normal things that you can't do in Gutenberg because of how blocks work. I try to minimize plugins for performance and security, but I have had to install way more than usual just to do things that were simple in the old editor but impossible in Gutenberg. And it's cumbersome as well. I haven't yet bailed out and installed the Classic Editor plugin, because I thought I should give Gutenberg a fair chance, but I might have to. For the minority who like Gutenberg, it would be fine as a plugin, but why can't the default editor simply be an editor?
How did this abomination ever graduate from beta to prime time??? Simply put... it sucks BDD! No one likes it... everyone is screaming about it... so, move on!!! The only proof you need is that the #1 trending plugin simply reverts Gooberberg to the previous editor! Wanna make a REAL GUI block editor? Shoulda checked out the successful ones first... Elementor comes to mind first. #ShamefulWP #PhotoMatt
When I add content to a site it needs to be posted the way I want it to be posted. With Gutenberg I can't. I can't have 1 word in a different color unless I use the classic block. The fact that I have to think about this and spend time on it is a bad sign.
