WordPress 5.0 “Bebo” is the latest version of WordPress. While many of us are excited for updates from free software, others resist change. WordPress 5.0 “Bebo” has a limited running time for other plugins, plus the only code editing option is a block-based editor called Gutenberg, however, Gutenberg is known for its seamless integration of all the moving parts in a WordPress website, such as plugins and themes.
“Bebo” improves the way users are able to create content. It also reveals how the WordPress team will schedule future updates, and the type of updates we can expect. For example, there are plans to unveil a Gutenberg phase 2, which will be made available in the near future.
Twenty Nineteen is Gutenberg’s default theme. It’s an elegantly minimalist theme. It allows you to edit, replace content with flexible functionality, and customize patterns that enhance user experience.
Why Are These WordPress Changes Happening Now?
In order to stay current, WordPress is ever-improving. It’s the most widely used site-building platform. But WordPress isn’t without competition. Hosted website builders try to lure WordPress users away with price cuts, and unique features. If found lacking, WordPress’s reputation would suffer.
New updates made websites more accessible by drawing data, and integrating with other applications, plugins, and themes. It has also helped users who are not developers to build customized themes.
WordPress 5.0 and Gutenberg
Since its release on December 6th, 2018, WordPress 5.0 has received mixed reactions. Many people don’t understand why they have to use Gutenberg, and if they are going to use it, why they must also use its plugins. But Gutenberg does support other types of add-ons that function with the platform.
Regarding themes, favorites like Neve have jumped on the Gutenberg bus. Plugins and themes not compatible with Gutenberg will have to find a way to upgrade, otherwise some features from previous versions of WordPress, including themes, applications, and plugins, will be left behind.
Why Block-based Editing?
Blocks are more appealing to the eye than classic modes. They offer additional design and concept when applying text, dragging images, or imputing videos, and when drawing up new content, they allow data importation to seem easy.
In conclusion, WordPress updates will continue to alter the ways in which we reach customers, as well as grow our businesses, and many new releases will focus on Gutenberg, at least in the coming years.
