I have coined the verb ‘to disgutenberg’ and I have Disgutenberged this site temporarily. To disgutenberg means to remove or suspend Gutenberg as the editor in a WordPress site.

Meanwhile, here are some crowds in Vienna. None of the people here are looking for Gutenberg.


  1. They probably have a lot of wrinkles to iron out 🙂

    I need to try it more, in my Publisher theme, before I make up my mind.

    In this theme; the little graphic/separator underneath the blog title interferes with the words … at least on my screen.

    • Not sure what you are seeing. On Independent Publisher I can’t see a separator?
      Have you left feedback?

      JenT recommended that I go to the Support forum for the Rosalie theme that I am using on Did that and waiting to hear back.
      I googled for how to make a theme Gutenberg ready and it doesn’t look too complicated for a theme developer to do, haha.

      • No, I meant on your theme; Rosalie. The yellowish-brown separator interferes with the lowercase p in the blog title. Nothing to do with Gutenberg — it did that before.

        Now I’ll go and try my old theme and see how that will work … 😊

  2. Lol, to “disgutenberg” is my new favourite word! So far, I’ve only had trouble with Gutenberg, it’s half-baked. I always ended up in HTML, editing things with code anyway. I don’t think it’s intended to be used by people who know some code and have an accurate idea of what they want to achieve. Oh and in case you wonder, I don’t have Gutenberg available on my WP-hosted blog, I experiment with it on self-hosted sites for work.

    • As a method of working, it falls between two stools. It is more confusing for newbie’s I think. For people more used to the workings, it is just a pain and slower than the old way. I am starting to feel more positive on the self-hosted site where I am using it because there are people making some clever blocks (pricing tables for example).

      • I abandoned experimenting with Gutenberg now. I had to start using the paid Divi Builder, which is Gutenberg on steroids, so I don’t need to bother with Gutenberg on top of it…


        • Nope. They’re hostile. It’s enough mess with the WP editor clashing with the Divi editor. Add Gutenberg on top of it and it’s a riot… At least that’s my initial experience.


        • That’s what I thought might be the case. I don’t know what I am going to do when Gutenberg gets put into core. There is always the Ramp plugin from Automattic to disable/enable Gutenberg selectively.
