Just want to get some export opinions on how to approach new builds given the impending release of Gutenberg, possible demise of GP Sections and the world of Page Builders.
I’m starting on 3 builds (all currently in discovery/planning). I had been using Elementor for a number of sites and like it but wanted to see what I could do without it and just using GP Headers and Sections. SO I build a simple site with only GP and GPP and it turned out really well.
So I’d like to approach these new builds using only GP and GPP but what will happen when Gutenberg and it’s Sections are released? Will I have to rebuild these sites? Or should I just use GP Headers, fill out the rest of the page with Elementor and hope that E still works once Gutenberg is released so I (again) don’t have to rebuild these sites.
I know so much of this is unknown. But for those of you building lots of sites (and with the whole WP environment being rather uncertain right now), what is the safest approach?

Thanks Leo. Seems Sections is safe until Gutenberg comes out with its own version (when is completely unknown). Also seems like I’d face the same decision if I used a page builder to build sections. So while I’m still not sure what to do, at least I know Tom’s take on things.March 3, 2018 at 9:41 am #510653TomLead DeveloperLead DeveloperMarch 3, 2018 at 9:59 am #510665Aaron
But GPP’s sections are still a good way to go for now?March 3, 2018 at 10:01 am #510668TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
Yes, they will continue to work. However, you may want to convert them to Gutenberg at some point in the future.
No matter how you choose to build your pages, you may want to switch to Gutenberg when it comes out. The uncertainty kind of comes with WP at the moment as they build it.March 3, 2018 at 12:44 pm #510777Aaron
True. Thanks, Tom.March 3, 2018 at 8:44 pm #510942
