I think the older content will be just fine.
If it will cause issue, WordPress won’t just convert to Gutenberg, that’s my opinion 🙂
And deactivating a plugin won’t cause long term issue, that’s the way we always do for debugging. You could deactivate it and exam the site, if it really causes issue, then just simply activate it back.
Good luck!February 17, 2021 at 3:46 pm #1662476Ian

Done and thx again.February 17, 2021 at 4:18 pm #1662500Ian
Oh, one last question. Is there a way to serve the Block with a shortcode? I think the easiest way to is create a block, grab a shortcode and insert into WP’s default sidebar widget. Is this possible?
Otherwise, I will have to try and use Block Type = Sidebar and build everything in there including running WP Show Posts shortcodes.February 17, 2021 at 5:15 pm #1662527LeoStaffCustomer Support
I’m not aware of a way to turn blocks into shortcode unfortunately.
I would recommend disabling the Classic editor plugin when you are using the block element module, then reactivate the Classic editor plugin once you are done or when you actually need it.
I’ve noted this issue and will see if we can force Gutenberg editor when the block element is used.February 17, 2021 at 5:29 pm #1662532Ian
Thanks Leo. We need to update about 1000 more posts. Let me use the classic editor to do this first and I will do all the classic editor.
Thanks!February 18, 2021 at 9:11 am #1663478LeoStaffCustomer SupportFebruary 19, 2021 at 2:18 pm #1665022Ian
Ying and Leo… holy crap. Game changer. Just disabled Classic Editor plugin and revamped our sidebar using an Element Block. WOW. Just wow. Removed older code and rebuilt using GB and speed went up a little. And when I say a little, it’s a lot since it’s the last few % point for Google PSI. The last few %’s are always the most difficult.
Again, thank you both. It took lots of hard work, testing, your team’s feedback (including yourselves, David, Tom etc…) and I even had to dig deep through my 20 years of optimization know-how to get an acceptable score and CWV for PSI for a site that run ad network tags.
The bad news. I am not sure how most business owners will even be able to pass half of the tests that Google has set out. The good news, business for this type of work should increasing dramatically and I look forward to servicing this niche.
Thank you all!February 19, 2021 at 6:15 pm #1665150YingStaffCustomer Support
You are very welcome!
I believe you’ll enjoy block editor 🙂
