So WordPress 5.0 is finally here, and with that came Gutenberg. Being in the WordPress community I have seen a lot of users complaining about the new editor being too complex. This is because WordPress users have been used to of the classic editor and its simplicity.
The new Gutenberg editor will make content management easier for bloggers and new users. On the flip side, the old timers and experienced users find it annoying to use the new editor.
A major concern of WordPress users regarding Gutenberg is adaptability. Since we have been using the classic editor for so long, we are not ready to accept such a big change. Users have stormed various WordPress forums and communities with their questions on Gutenberg.
