Questions:

  1. Hi Adam and Kyle, this is Joey from Singapore. Today, let me ask your honest opinions about Gutenberg block editor. Do you really like it? Among you two, Kyle always sounds more positive towards Gutenberg, but I dont like it at all. When I write posts, I always use Classic Editor by even disabling visual editor, as I hand-code everything using paragraph tags, image tags and fancybox tags and et cetera, which leads to a concern that all these hand-written tags might be stripped out when old posts are converted to Gutenberg, and fancybox might become non-functional. As of writing, Gutenberg plugin gets only 2 out of 5 stars with nearly 3000 reviews while Classic Editor gets 5 out of 5 stars with 700 reviews. I understand that WordPress plans to support Classic Editor for the next few years, but after that, do you think we’ll all be forced to use Gutenberg? Or, it simply means WordPress stops updating Classic Editor plugin, but were still free to use it at our own risk? I’d like to hear your honest opinions, thanks!
