    Hi there,

    I noticed with the latest version of the GP Premium plugin installed, I can no longer use the new Gutenberg text editor. Whenever I create a new post, it automatically redirects me to the Classic Editor instead.

    This strangely only happens when GP Premium plugin is enabled. It did not do this previously. May I know what is wrong? Thanks!

    GP Premium 1.6.2

    In the changelog for 1.6 I see that it will disable Gutenberg if Sections are used.

    I’m pretty sure that’s what you’re seeing. I remember a discussion here where Tom said that those weren’t compatible due to significant editor changes in Gutenberg. That’s one reason I’ve held off on using Gutenberg, except for testing environments.

    Yes, this will only happen if you have the Sections module enabled.

    Since Sections isn’t currently compatible with Gutenberg, it disables it.

    Once Gutenberg fixes an open issue they have with the TinyMCE error, we’ll be able to run both together 🙂

    @tom: What are your plans for making sections compatible with Gutenberg? I might be able to help out building the blocks for it on company time.

    Do you plan to move them to Gutenberg at all? Would a simple block that renders them including the settings be an option or would you rather move them to columns with nested blocks instead, since most features like section background color can be done in Gutenberg as well?

    I’m open for dicussion, let me know if you can share your plans already.

    I’m kind of just waiting. There’s discussion happening within Gutenberg about creating a “Section” block.

    If they do that, we’ll wait until it’s possible to extend existing blocks, and will add our current Sections options to the existing Section block.

    If they don’t, we’ll likely build our own Sections block, however I’m not a big fan of that, as you’d likely lose your content if you switched themes.

    Thanks for your reply Tom!

    Yes I see, that makes more sense.

    If they don’t, we’ll likely build our own Sections block, however I’m not a big fan of that, as you’d likely lose your content if you switched themes.

    Ohh absolutely that wouldn’t be very good, would an additional add-on just for the sections possibliy make sense?

    I think that would be the best method if it comes to it. Hopefully they add a core Section block which we can extend 🙂

    Fingers crossed 🤞 this will be the way they do it.

    It’s currently a plugin. If you go to “Plugins > Add New” and search for “Gutenberg”, you’ll see it 🙂
