Notice about WordPress 5.0

WordPress 5.0 introduces the new WordPress Editor, previously code-named Gutenberg. Read the full WordPress 5.0 release notes. While we at ProudCity are excited about the page building capabilities of the new WordPress Editor, there are a number of advanced layouts with columns that are not currently supported in the new Editor. In addition, there are a number of changes to the backend with the new Editor that break the ProudCity editing experience.

For this reason, we are releasing WordPress 5.0 in this release with the new WordPress Editor disabled. When you login to edit a landing page, you will see the familiar page building interface from the SiteOrigin Page Builder, and when you compose a new news post, you will see the classic WordPress Editor.

SiteOrigin Page Builder is working on an integration with the new WordPress Editor. Once these updates have been made to the this plugin, we will be able to insure backwards compatibility and will work to integrate the new WordPress Editor in the ProudCity Platform.

What changes will I notice?

There should few obvious changes in this release. There were a number of improvements under the hood, and in many cases you should see improved page-load speeds.

What’s up next?

Release 1.68.0 will be primarily a bugfix release.
