I am using Sections, because gutenberg doesn’t seem to allow ‘fullwidth’ row with ‘contained’ columns (if you know how to do this I’d love to know).
After adding all my sections – saving – and coming back – all the HTML for the sections is shown in the wordpress editor. It doesn’t matter, it’s not broken or repeated on render – but it’s ugly and weird. Is this intentional or a bug? Can I remove the WP editor when using sections?
By way of thanks and a request – Just starting with GP – very glad to have found it. I went to a Theme Builder a few years ago because coding got too much. But I’m going back to code because every builder eventually adds so much crap, bloat and fancy JS I don’t need it kills the speed. One of my sites in Divi – PageLoad: 6.2 secs, Pagespeed: 79%, Ysolw: 62%, Size: 2.2mb. Elementor – PL: 3.4, PS: 90%, YS: 72%, Size: 824k. GP – PL 2s, PS:99%, YS 87%, Size: 467k. Can’t remember the Requests, but MANY for divi, about 60 for elementor – down to 24 with GP – and most of that is native WP.
Don’t know, just thought it might be nice to know. Yes, i have to hand code stuff now – but the performance is amazing.
Please be different to every other ‘themer’ and continue to develop for speed and necessity – not to add a ton of useless features and bloat 🙂 You’ll have at least one fan for life 🙂
Hope you’re all doing ok in these strange times.April 4, 2020 at 7:42 pm #1226887LeoStaffCustomer Support
Are you just starting to build the site?
If so I would highly recommend using our upcoming block plugin GenerateBlocks to achieve the layout you are going for:
It’s currently in Beta testing but we are moving along nicely and getting ready for the official release soon:
One of the main goals of the plugin is to replace the old Sections add-on which won’t be getting any updates now.
Let me know if this helps 🙂April 4, 2020 at 10:54 pm #1226963Mike
That looks ideal – and I can still use my own svg dividers. I looked at multiple ‘extra blocks’ plugins – but they all used loads of JS. What weight does this plugin add to the page?
Thanks for the plugin, and the quick response.April 5, 2020 at 4:19 am #1227134DavidStaffCustomer SupportApril 5, 2020 at 4:33 am #1227145Mike
Wonderful stuff, thanks David.
Just in case others come across this thread and (like me) are new to Gutenberg etc.
Editing columns or nested objects – it can get really hard to ‘click select’ containers. (e.g. create full-width container, drop in a shortcode and it’s impossible to click the container any more).
But there’s a breadcrumb at the bottom of the screen, enabling you to select this way. Maybe obvious, but it took me a fair while to find it!April 5, 2020 at 4:34 am #1227146Mike

Yep – and the Block Navigator can be a frustration saver too:April 7, 2020 at 10:56 am #1230207Bee
This happened to me too after I upgraded to WordPress 5.4. The pages with sections now automatically create a Classic block in the backend editor with the content of the sections. It doesn’t show on the frontend page, but it’s confusing.April 7, 2020 at 10:56 am #1230209TomLead DeveloperLead DeveloperApril 7, 2020 at 11:12 am #1230228Bee

For your comment about the breadcrumb trail, you get a big (virtual) hug! Thanks a million. Had noticed it some days ago and not appreciated its utility at the time.
