    Gutenberg and WordPress are currently being strongly influenced. Is that an understatement? Perhaps! If you look at this post (https://make.wordpress.org/core/2019/11/02/join-the-gutenberg-customization-conversations/), I have the feeling that WordPress is about to have a second birth. I would be very interested to know which direction GP is working in. How does GP deal with widgets? How about the menu? How about the Full Site edditing? Does GP get its own blocks?

    Hi there,

    I’ve been deeply into Gutenberg since it was released, and have been particularly interested in how it will affect themes.

    We’ve been working on our own block plugin which has been coded and designed the “GP way”. Super excited to release it.

    The beautiful thing about GP is how we’ve been able to keep it light and simple, which will continue to make GP relevant even as the landscape changes.

    The idea behind full site editing is great, but I’m not sold on how core is going to do it. We’re taking steps to achieve this in our own way, and have most of it built already. More on this coming in GP Premium 1.10 🙂

    Well, I’m curious about that. I am not really such a big friend of theme or plugin based change. I can also design my menu with Elementor, but I would never do that. I follow what WordPress recommends. I still hope GP will somehow follow the path that WordPress Core takes.

    As an example: I can also build sections in GP. But that is superfluous and no longer useful. Or? Now everything runs over blocks and a feature like that doesn’t make sense to me.

    I’ve never been one to wander too far off the WordPress path (unless necessary, like when Sections was developed). Will definitely be interested in your feedback once we release the new feature 🙂

    Okay, thanks for the approach. Maybe this is interesting: As a user, I see the work in the theme mainly in the area of styling and speed. Another approach might be ionic? Could be and certainly very future-oriented…

    If Gutenberg no longer classifies the menu block as an experiment, then that’s a clear direction. I hope GP uses this feature and rethinks the approach of how GP and WordPress work together.

    Hello,

    “We’ve been working on our own block plugin which has been coded and designed the “GP way”. Super excited to release it.”

    Do you have any timeline for this, you mentioned version 1.10. would be the moment… I have built a lot of my websites with sections, so I am really waiting for this release. Regards

    I’m not really one for timelines – I like things to be 99% stable before I release them. It’s getting very close 🙂
