At WP4Good, I work with various organizations and sites. We handle quite the variety of set-ups and hosting situations.
In January 2018 we started testing the most used plugins and themes for Gutenberg readiness and keep a list here. It will help us assess which members sites need special assistance after the hosting partner rolls out the WordPress 5.0 release.
If you are a plugin developer or a site administrator, you might be interested in this discussion on Github: “Determine how plugin conflicts are handled and communicated” started by Kevin Hoffman
Daniel Bachhuber, working on an ecosystem-wide method to let users know which plugins are compatible with Gutenberg, has created a list of plugins on GitHub that are compatible as is, as they do not touch the editor. There is also the list of non-compatible plugins.
You can learn more about this eco-wide approach, by following the discussion on GitHub
Plugins, we tested
We did our own tests and post it here. Click on below links to jump to the short description of our test for the particular plugin.
Blocks / Plugins in Progress
Proof of Concepts, plugins or Blocks first steps, or updates from plugins not yet released.
- GiveWP – is discussing how donations forms will be handled via Gutenberg Blocks, no version yet available for testing.
- CodePen Embed Block
- Team Page Block (using Blocks Boilerplate plugin)
- The Events Calendar started with Gutenberg explorations, too. Here is Part I
- Contact Form 7 already has a Gutenberg Block
Mid-December, a couple weeks after WordCamp US, Josh Pollock, lead developer at Caldera Labs announced that the form builder Caldera Forms is Gutenberg ready.
We tested it. It works.
To add a Caldera form to your page, select the Caldera Forms block from the “Inserter”. A select box offers you the list of available Caldera forms. When you select one, it will display on your page or post. Fairly easy.
The drop-down box looks a bit funny and would need a little more TLC and white space around it. For testing purposes, it works fine.
The form updates automatically when you change the settings in the Caldera Form admin screen. At the moment there are no additional settings available in Gutenberg for Caldera Forms.
See it in action on our “Getting Ready for Gutenberg” post.
