I got this comment yesterday on a Gutenberg video of mine: “Anybody who knows HTML/CSS hates the damn thing. They should have incrementally introduced it. Personally, I think it sucks. All the assumed functionality is has been removed.” And I asked him: “Compared to the Classic Editor?” And he responded: “Yes…I love the concept but the layout and how it works is not intuitive. This, in my opinion, is a fail. I’m sure it’s better. I just hate it.” I honestly don’t get it. What can you do in the Classic Editor that you can’t in Gutenberg? Like, if you
Spaketh the troll: “The only thing laughable here is this smug, horrible take. That’s what cracks me up. Gutenberg is a clunky, horrible mess. I can see how the childish building block approach might appeal to an arrogant prick like yourself who believes that every sentence deserves a new line, but to real content creators who actually know how to write, it’s a nightmare. An actual blog, an actual article…something you clearly know nothing about, since you’re committed to this self-congratulatory “I’m smarter than everyone else” drivel you laughably call a blog. I’m sure you’ll offer up some snarky reply
This is the mistake everyone keeps making. I’ve heard it probably a dozen times now. “As a page builder…” “Compared to Elementor…” “If you’ve used Beaver Builder…” I don’t care what WordPress calls it. What any core committer might say about it… Gutenberg is NOT a page builder. Not yet, anyway. So, if you’re looking at it that way and comparing to other page builders… Sure, Gutenberg sucks… As a page builder… For now. But, that’s the wrong comparison, IMO. Instead, think of it as a post editor. And, compare it to the old TinyMCE editor. THAT is what Gutenberg
People crack me up. I remember when I first showed my mom a smartphone. “What the hell do I need THAT for?” You should see her now. Getting her off Facebook is like trying to get a politician to quit lying. I remember when Twitter came out. “This is so stupid. Why would anyone care what I’m doing?” We see where that went. And yes, yes… I even remember when the internet came out. (Old jokes will get you BLOCKED! :D) There were people who said it’d never be a “thing”. People are so often horribly, awfully, terribly wrong about
If you don’t know… Gutenberg is the new editing experience for WordPress 5.0 and beyond. And, it is a drastic shift in how post and page creation works in WordPress… moving from one large block of text in the Classic Editor to small, individual blocks of text and media in Gutenberg. And, the big thing is… this is only the beginning. Gutenberg will continue to become more and more apart of WordPress moving into full-site layouts and theming and even, eventually, into the WordPress admin area. So, if you’re using WordPress and haven’t yet… It’s time to learn Gutenberg. Which

John is one of the best instructors I have come across, I learned a lot from his online tutorials.

John is a fantastic and patient tutor, who is not just able to share knowledge and communicate it very effectively – but able to support one in applying it. However, I believe that John has a very rare ability to go further than just imparting knowledge and showing one how to apply it. He is able to innately provoke one’s curiosity when explaining and demonstrating concepts, to the extent that one can explore and unravel their own learning journey. Thanks very much John!
John and I have worked together on numerous projects. John is very quick and efficient and was a pleasure to work with.
Not only is John a very talented programmer and developer, he is also an excellent communicator. He has a talent for taking complex subjects and communicating them in terms that anyone can understand. This is a rare combination. This ability has enabled me to take my skills and knowledge to the next level. Thank you John for for all that you do.
John Morris is exceptional in his ability to give focused insight into Freelancing and starting one’s business. His direct methods inspire confidence in his honesty.
