The way you develop and create content with WordPress is changing. With the release of WordPress 5.0 and the new Gutenberg editor, there will be a lot of adjustments to make. They not only affect what we see on our screens but also the underlying techniques we use to customize the back end.
Writing with Gutenberg
The most visible change with WordPress 5.0 is the block-based Gutenberg editor. Gone are the days of a single rectangular field to type away at your next blog post.
Customizing the Edit Screen
Among the biggest changes with WordPress 5.0 and Gutenberg are how customizations to the edit screen both look and are built.
Building a Custom WordPress Theme
It seems fairly unlikely that Gutenberg will “break” any themes. Instead, existing themes just may not be set up to take full advantage of some of the fancy new features, such as cover images.
