Gutenberg

WordPress replaced their aging Classic editor with an intuitive drag-and-drop editor called Gutenberg. There is a learning curve. However things that were difficult or impossible to do in the Classic editor are easy in Gutenberg. These changes will soon roll across all of WordPress, including themes, plugins, widgets.

Gutenberg¬†may break things on sites with older themes and plugins. Sites need to be checked to insure they are compatible with Gutenberg. This especially applies to themes. Sooner or later, themes that are not Gutenberg-ready will start having issues. It’s best to upgrade now.

Speed up your WordPress site

Speeding up sites is done by optimizing Javascript, CSS, HTML, and cache. using a fast mobile theme, activating AMP to speed up mobile page loading, and testing to see if any plugins or the theme are slowing down the site.
