What we mean by
Gutenberg is the new editing experience which is being introduced into WordPress in the 5.0 release.
The editing experience uses a block based experience to make it easier than ever for site creators to build the experiences their brands demand.
The StudioPress engineering team has extensively tested Genesis and the StudioPress themes with the Gutenberg editor. The great news is that Genesis and the StudioPress themes are compatible with the Gutenberg editor.
You don’t need to fear the Gutenberg update. Your sites will be okay with Genesis and the StudioPress themes!
Of course, just working with Gutenberg isn’t enough. We want to help you lead with Gutenberg and create the kind of content-rich, great-looking digital experiences the new editor makes possible.
In order to do this, we’ll be releasing updates to the StudioPress themes to help you win with Gutenberg. These updates will include styles for the Gutenberg blocks that will match the style of your StudioPress theme. You can read this article on how to do the same for your custom child themes.
We’ll also be introducing technology that makes it easier to load demo content when launching a new theme, which will also include the ability to load reusable Gutenberg blocks. StudioPress themes will benefit from an even more intuitive and modular approach to building and customizing, and because this technology will be rolled into Genesis itself, you’ll also be able to leverage the benefits of the content API in the custom child themes you build!
Finally, we’re working on updates for the Genesis framework to make it super easy to style Gutenberg blocks. These workflow-friendly features will help you preserve the performance and optimizations you get by using Genesis and will help improve theme portability so you can evolve your sites more easily over time.
We’re honored you have chosen Genesis and StudioPress to play a role in the way you build experiences, and we’re looking forward to all the ways we’ll help you win with Gutenberg.
