Everyone is talking about the new content editor coming to WordPress, known as “Gutenberg”. Gutenberg will be included as the default visual editor within WordPress core, starting with WordPress version 5.0. I recently received a question asking if the Spacer plugin will be compatible with Gutenberg.
I thought it would be a good idea to do a quick blog post on this topic, in case others have the same question.
Will the Spacer plugin be Gutenberg compatible?
Good news – Yes the Spacer plugin is compatible with Gutenberg. All you need to do is make sure to use the “Classic” block within Gutenberg. You will then be able to access the classic Spacer WYSIWYG button and use it as normal.
We are also currently exploring the idea of adding an additional Spacer plugin block within Gutenberg, though nothing is finalized on this front.
Thanks for taking the time to read this quick post. Hope you find it helpful. Please let me know if you have any questions or other feedback in the comments.
