Mise à jour Wordpress

On November 27th, a major update will be available for your WordPress site: version 5.0. This update is considered one of the most significant in the history of the content management system, mainly due to the introduction of the new page editor, Gutenberg.

Gutenberg is intended to replace the default WordPress editor and will serve as an alternative to popular solutions like Visual Composer, Beaver Builder, or Elementor. However, it is important to note that this change may have a significant impact on the display of your content.

Having conducted tests on version 5.0 and Gutenberg, we would like to share our findings. While the latest version shows favorable improvements, we believe it is still premature to go live with Gutenberg. Its functionality is not intuitive, and we have identified some bugs.
