WordPress 5.0 is here. For the WordPress Developer community it has been a big ordeal, and by all accounts, this is the most significant release to date, but what does it all mean to you — our clients?
There are two main updates that come with the latest greatest WordPress “Gutenberg” release: the Gutenberg editor and the 2019 theme.
The 2019 theme is nice, and of course it’s Gutenberg ready, but it’s not the star of this release’s show. Most WordPress development companies will continue to use a other WordPress theme frameworks and not rely on 2019. (Our New Jersey WordPress Development team tested our framework of choice, Genesis, with Gutenberg extensively.) This theme will make the DIY WordPress audience able to use Gutenberg with little or no difficulty.
WordPress 5.0 is all about the Gutenberg editor
The new release was always about Gutenberg. We know what this means WordPress developers need to learn a different way of doing things – which is good. For WordPress as a CMS, this means it can compete with other block style editors like Wix and Squarespace. Regardless where you fall on the Gutenberg spectrum both of the above points are good for the future.
For Trinity Web Media clients it means little or nothing. Without being cavalier, Trinity Web Media’s NJ WordPress development team is more about solving business problems vs. inundating our clients with technology.
We have tested the sites we manage and maintain and (so far) all systems are go. If you want training on the new WordPress 5.0 Gutenberg editor we are available to facilitate complimentary training for all existing clients.
Trinity Web Media is on top of things — don’t worry about the new updates, we have your sites covered.
