Preparation for the Gutenberg Editor and WordPress 5.0.
As I read the posts I will continue to add some material on Gutenberg editor to my Link Library.
It seems best to approach is to the use the Classic Editor plugin with the Gutenberg Editor as an option.
WordPress 4.9.5, TwentySeventeen Theme and PHP 7.2.4
Upgrading to PHP 7.2.4 has been troubled by Server 500 errors within the admin dashboard. The WordPress upgrade to 4.9.5 with fixes for PHP 7.2 along with a TwentySeventeen upgrade to V1.5 not gone well. Based on some user experiences I reinstalled the theme when the upgrade did not fix the 500 errors. This has reduced the errors but they have not gone away. Into this mix I’ve added the Classic Editor plugin.
Install on Sandbox site.
I have added the Classic and Gutenberg editors to my Sandbox WordPress site. So far they seem to work fine.
