    WordPress + Gutenberg, Do Godaddy have any plan?

    Hi there,

     

    WordPress 5.0 is coming with Gutenberg and im wondering if Godaddy have any plan of disabling the classic editor plugin to give way for this new content editor `Gutenberg`.

     

    So big question now is - will godaddy override the classic editor plugin and force Guternberg? any plan?

    Please note that I'm not speaking for GoDaddy here but as someone who knows how WordPress works.

     

    First, when 5.0 comes out, Gutenburg will be the default editor. Doesn't matter what anyone wants. You can download a plugin to use the classic editor, though, if you don't like Gutenburg. You have to remember that GoDaddy doesn't control WordPress, they don't help WordPress develop anything, and they can't control how the releases for new versions come out. 

     

    Second, there's currently a WordPress 5.0 beta version of the plugin for site developers to test their site builds out with the new version. It's up to developer to determine if their site will work correctly on 5.0, not GoDaddy.

     

    Third, not updating would be a bad idea as you'll find yourself leaving your site insecure and vulnerable to malware attack.
