Well, I pulled the trigger! I reached the point where there was just no more testing worth doing, and it was time to move ahead. I upgraded our 391 WordPress blogs to WordPress 5.0 and enabled the brand-new Gutenberg editor for all our blog authors!
For most people, this exciting development will be about as impactful as picking up a penny from the street. For others, it will be a cool feature. For still others, it will be a terrifying switch that needs to be turned off as quickly as possible! But for me, the web developer, this switch is the culmination of a month of preparations, from overhauling one of our plugins to running a whole bunch of tests to make sure our theme is ready to display the content as the user assumes it will. It’s a scary thing.
Please pray that it will be as smooth of a transition as it looks like it will be, and that I’ll be prepared and able to support the authors who need help making the change.
