Gutenberg, WordPress 5.0 & how it affects our plugins


It’s finally happened. WordPress version 5.0 is now available, and the new Gutenberg page builder has been added to WordPress core.

Other blogs have endlessly discussed the pros and cons of Gutenberg, so this post will focus specifically on how Gutenberg affects Barn2’s plugins.

The good news is that you can continue using our plugins in the usual way after upgrading to WordPress 5.0 and Gutenberg. If you’re using the shortcodes that come with our plugins, just add them to a ‘Shortcode’ or ‘Paragraph’ Gutenberg block.

For full details, we’ve published a knowledge base article about how to use each plugin with Gutenberg. We’ve also updated the instructions throughout our knowledge base.

Here are some screenshots showing our plugins in use with Gutenberg:
