It would be good if we can use Posts as Elements in order to have visual representation of the content.
That way people can use Gutenberg for creating nice inserts.
Not everyone is a developer and a coder.
At the moment the folks from Astra have that.
Of course you can still edit the code, but the main part should be post editor.
If I want to insert Gutenberg element to every post as a Hook, I should copy the code from the editor?January 7, 2020 at 8:08 am #1124812TomLead DeveloperLead DeveloperJanuary 7, 2020 at 9:37 am #112488893487u5tr938ouh4trnos8fyoh
Will it support Gutenberg, I found if is much better for performance to use Gutenberg than plugins.
That way I can use Gutenberg blocks as Elements for author bio, table of contents, sharing buttons and more without sacrificing performance with cluttered plugins.
Will you support Gutenberg and will it be visual and code switchable like posts?
Can I use currently the code from a Gutenberg block to use it as an element now?
Around when do you plan to release 1.10?January 7, 2020 at 2:14 pm #1125070LeoStaffCustomer Support
Currently you cannot use code from Gutenberg block in Elements and our plan is to allow Gutenberg editor in Elements.
Really no timeline for 1.10 as for now unfortunately.
Thanks for your patience!January 7, 2020 at 2:52 pm #112510893487u5tr938ouh4trnos8fyoh
Gutenberg is heading towards full site edit, their plugin has this experiments where you can turn on full site edit. If I do that, can I use the code for Elements?January 7, 2020 at 2:58 pm #1125110LeoStaffCustomer SupportJanuary 7, 2020 at 8:42 pm #112524293487u5tr938ouh4trnos8fyoh
I am confused a little. In your next version you want to enable Gutenberg for elements, right? That means in the current you have no Gutenberg support and you know that or you were mentioning the visual editing side?January 7, 2020 at 9:13 pm #1125248LeoStaffCustomer Support
I’m a little confused too.
In your next version you want to enable Gutenberg for elements, right?
That means in the current you have no Gutenberg support and you know that or you were mentioning the visual editing side?
Not for the elements module but we do have full support for Gutenberg in posts and pages.
Currently the elements module only supports the text editor.
Does that answer your question or am I misunderstanding something?
Let me know 🙂January 8, 2020 at 5:11 pm #112623293487u5tr938ouh4trnos8fyoh
My goal is to replace most if not all plugins that output visual things like read more posts, social media icons, social sharing buttons, author bio, table of contents and many more with blocks instead plugins for performance and management reasons.
Whatever you do I hope that you will make it compatible with what WordPress is doing with Gutenberg and their Full Site Editing experiment.
I guess you already know that, but you can install the Gutenberg plugin as it is versions ahead from the built in WordPress Core editor version.
After that you an activate Full Site Editing from their Experiments settings or something called like that.
You can also install their plugin for Full Site Editing to see where things are heading.
Whatever you do, please make sure GeneratePress is compatible which would secure and future proof it as if you make a system that goes against that WordPress direction and it be another builder, I predict it won’t last for long.

If your elements support Gutenberg and they could be placed anywhere, including header, menu, sidebars, footers etc, it would make things much better.
Also if your theme starts fully supporting Gutenberg Full Site Editing natively without issue I guess it would be even better.
I ultimately think the goal for the WordPress team is to create a Wix and Squarespace alternative with drag and drop visual editing interface due to the market demand. Please makes sure you start supporting some of this Gutenberg in the same way so I can ditch plugins in favor of blocks and benefit for my performance, security, management, and more.January 8, 2020 at 6:03 pm #1126261LeoStaffCustomer SupportJanuary 21, 2020 at 12:01 am #113866293487u5tr938ouh4trnos8fyoh
Any updates on where the new GeneratePress & GP Premium betas would be released so I can tests the insertion of Gutenberg elements?January 21, 2020 at 8:13 am #1139323TomLead DeveloperLead DeveloperJanuary 21, 2020 at 8:35 am #113935493487u5tr938ouh4trnos8fyoh
“Proposed WordPress 5.4 Scope

Are you looking to release a beta version that would support Gutenberg in Elements soon?
