Woke up to the news that WordPress 5.0, with its new editor Gutenberg (test it here), will launch on Thursday. WordPress is the world’s most widely used publishing platform (CMS if you will), and it’s great in many ways. Right now, the controversy around the 5.0 release is overshadowing all of that.

The Divide & Conquer team is spending the day getting our clients ready for 5.0. It’s not what I’d like to do, in the middle of my move and everything, but that’s how it is. If you have clients running WordPress, I suggest you install and activate the Classic Editor plugin, and then decide how to proceed, if you haven’t already. Good luck.
