    WordPress 5.0 is releasing on 11/27/2018, and with it comes a new editor: Gutenberg.

    What is Gutenberg?

    Gutenberg is the new editor for WordPress, used when making changes to Posts and Pages. This will replace the now called Classic Editor.
    WordPress provides a useful overview of the editor. The linked post is interactive so you can play around with the editor from that itself, just start clicking around.

    How do we embed our widgets in Posts and Pages with the new editor?

    We are working on updating all existing products to support blocks. This will probably not be finished until mid December (Estimated).
    In the meantime, you can add a generic Shortcode Block to any Page/Post, by going to New Block > Widgets > Shortcode then manually put in one of our Shortcodes.

    Can I go back to the previous editor?

    WordPress continues to support the classic editor. You can use it by installing the Classic Editor plugin. Switching between the two is as simple as activating or deactivating the Classic Editor plugin.

    Does Gutenberg impact sidebar widgets or custom widget areas?

    No, Gutenberg is only a Post and Page editor. The existing Appearance > Widgets sections will not change.

    Does Gutenberg impact Wrapper pages?

    No. Currently custom post types still use the classic editor (as of 5.0-beta3-43878).

    Where is our IDX shortcode selector UI?

    That has been removed with the new editor – though is still available in the Classic Editor plugin.
    As a stopgap, before we are fully Gutenberg compatible, you can add a Shortcode by going to New Block > Widgets > Shortcode then manually put in one of our Shortcodes.
