WordPress Hosting Best Practices Documentation

GutenbergGutenberg The Gutenberg project is the new Editor Interface for WordPress. The editor improves the process and experience of creating new content, making writing rich content much simpler. It uses ‘blocks’ to add richness rather than shortcodes, custom HTML etc.

  • @danielbachhuber asked team members to report back on adoption of Gutenberg.
    • @mikeschroder said things are going better than expected at DreamHost.
    • @t-rave said Flywheel has not seen much chatter about Gutenberg yet.
  • @mikeschroder asked team members to monitor any changes in resource usage on WordPress websites with Gutenberg installed.
    • @pento reported outside of the normal meeting time some instances of increased RAM usage have been seen by users who install Gutenberg.
