WordPress version 5.0 (scheduled for release late November 2018) will include a completely new Editor (called Gutenberg), as well as a new 2019 theme (based around Gutenberg).
Most websites should continue to work OK (from a users perspective at least) once you have updated to WP5.0… however when you go to edit pages or posts, you will have a VERY different editing experience. There may also be compatibility issues with some themes and plugins (particularly if you use WooCommerce or “Page Builder” type plugins).
We recommend that you hold of upgrading to WP5.0 for now and wait a while until things stabilise.
But there are some things that you should do to ensure that the transition to WP 5.0 runs smoothly.
This workshop will address the things that you should be doing to prepare your site for Gutenberg. This includes :
- Checking Theme/Plugin compatibility
- Updating your Theme
- Updating your Plugins
- Creating a Test
- Updating WP to V 5.0
- Reverting to the Classic Editor

WP 5.0 (scheduled for release late November 2018) includes a completely new Editor (called Gutenberg), as well as a new 2019 theme (based around Gutenberg).
The new default Editor is VERY different to the editor you are probably used to. The new editor, is a “block” based editor which introduces new more sophisticated ways to add and manage your pages/posts. It also offers a lot more capabilities for future enhancements.
This workshop will guide you through the new WordPress Editor and show you how to add new content as well as update manage existing content… giving you confidence to be able to use the new editor once it has been applied to your site.
We will be working in a fresh clean installation of WordPress so you don’t need to worry about mucking up your existing website. We will also be looking at the new 2019 WP Theme.
There may be opportunities to talk about your own website, but because this is a group workshop session questions specific to your site (which may not be relevant to others) are best addressed outside this workshop session.
Please Contact Us to check on availability, confirm this workshop will suit your needs, or register to attend.
(Note: we are also running a “Planning for Gutenberg” workshop immedialtly prior to this wokshop… if you attend both you get a discount of $30 +GST)
