What is a Gutenberg Editor? SFWPExperts

LOS ANGELES - Oct. 2, 2023 - PRLog -- Gutenberg editors is the new default WordPress editor introduced in the year 2018 when WordPress 5.0 was launched publicly. WordPress revealed that the main reason to replace the TinyMCE editor with a Gutenberg editor is to ensure that users are able to build rich posts and attractive layouts within a few clicks.

It became possible with the launch of blocks. As mentioned earlier Gutenberg's editor is also known as "Block Editor". Blocks are nothing but simple elements like text, images, widgets, shortcodes, and more. Using blocks users are able to create attractive layouts, beautiful pages, and posts without taking the help of page builder plugins.

Small Description About How Gutenberg Replaced TinyMCE

From the beginning i.e. from 2003 WordPress has been using TinyMCE (Tiny Moxiecode Content Editor) as the main editor which came with a simple interface to create new posts and pages for the WordPress website. The editor was used by millions of people and offered all the based functionality needed to run a website.

However, with the increase in the number of users and businesses shifting to WordPress, Matt Mullenweg said that to power a new generation of content developers and to grab more users and businesses' attention WordPress needs a new version.

During the development phase, the editor got the name "Gutenberg". Before making it the default WordPress editor, it was introduced as the stand-alone plugin so that developers and site owners can test its effectiveness.

After getting a good response from site owners and a successful trial by developers, Gutenberg block editors were introduced as WordPress default editors in 2018. Compared to the previous classic editor, the WordPress block editor is more advanced but offers a simple and user-friendly interface to site owners.
