WordPress is continually under development. Currently, work is underway on Phase 2 of the Gutenberg project. The Gutenberg project is a reimagination of the way we manage content on the web. Its goal is to broaden access to web presence, which is a foundation of successful modern businesses. Phase 1 was the new block editor, which was released in WordPress 5.0, you can see that in action here. In 2021 we’re focusing on merging full site editing (Phase 2) into WordPress which brings block editing to the entire site, not just posts and pages. For more information on full site editing, its components, and other active feature work, check out the Feature Projects Overview page.

For 2021 the project has some big picture goals, as outlined in this post:

  • Full site editing: Bring into the Gutenberg plugin, and subsequently WordPress Core, the ability to edit all elements of a site using Gutenberg blocks. This will include all in-progress features designed to help existing users transition to Gutenberg as well. Scope/Timeline: MVP in the plugin by April 2021, v1 in Core by WordPress 5.8.
  • LearnWP: Enable WordPress skills-leveling by providing workshops, pre-recorded trainings, and self-serve learning opportunities on Scope/Timeline: regularly publish new workshops and lesson plans, maintain a high pass rate on workshop quizzes to establish learner success and comprehension.
  • Tools voor bijdragers: verminder de handmatige overhead van onderhoudswerkzaamheden voor teams door betere tools. Scope/tijdlijn: gevarieerd en in afwachting van aanvullende tests.

Lange termijn stappenplan

Fase 2 van Gutenberg is niet klaar als het is samengevoegd met WordPress. Het werk om feedback te verzamelen en te herhalen op basis van de gebruikersbehoeften, gaat door nadat WordPress 5.8 is uitgebracht. Ter herinnering: dit zijn de vier fasen die in het Gutenberg project beschreven worden:

De vier fasen van Gutenberg

  1. Easier Editing — Already available in WordPress, with ongoing improvements
  2. Customization — Full Site editing, Block Patterns, Block Directory, Block based themes
  3. Samenwerking — Een meer intuïtieve manier om samen inhoud te schrijven
  4. Multi-lingual — Core implementation for Multi-lingual sites
