  • Thanks John. I appreciate your honest feedback.
    I have the same opinion. No matter how I look at it, I still cannot see the advantage of Gutenberg Blocks on larger sites. For small blogs or personal sites they might apply well; it gets WordPress closer to Squarespace or Wix.

    I watched a couple-years old video where Blocks were introduced. I did an honest attempt to share the enthusiasm of the speaker but I still find the direction unnecessary when using WP as a CMS.

    Another issue I found is that creating blocks is quite time consuming, and it might require extra plugins to speed up the process. It all seems quite backwards.

    Thank you!
