As you probably already know, WordPress 5.0 comes with the major change of the Post Editor. Gutenberg block editor is replacing the old Classic Editor that hasn’t had many changes over the years and for the most part, has stayed pretty much the same.
MainWP plugin has been tested with WordPress 5.0 over the last few months and we are proud to say that the plugin is fully compatible with the new version of the most popular CMS. The functionality of the MainWP plugin and all of the MainWP Extensions is absolutely not affected by this major number update of the WP core.
What about the Gutenberg?
Well, even though the Gutenberg editor is becoming the default WordPress post editor, we decided to keep the classic editor as the part of the MainWP Dashboard interface. This means that everything stays the same in your MainWP Dashboard.
Through the classic editor embedded to your MainWP Dashboard, you will be able to normally publish posts and pages.
If you want to use the Gutenberg Editor
In case the Gutenberg becomes your preferred choice for writing & publishing your content, you can always go to your child site directly from your MainWP Dashboard and get the job done. To do that,
- Go to your MainWP Dashboard
- Go to the MainWP > Sites > Manage page
- Locate the wanted child site in the list and click the WP Admin link
- Once redirected to the Child Site, go to the WP Admin > Posts > Add New and write/publish your content.
Once again MainWP is fully tested with 5.0 and it’s recommended you also review our other blog post How to make sure your child sites are ready for WordPress 5.0.
