In our last Gutenberg update, we shared our high level recommendations to help enterprise WordPress users fully embrace the block while planning for WordPress 5.0 and the new Gutenberg editor. That included an initial set of Gutenberg educational videos we’ve developed exclusively for VIP clients and their teams.
Today we’re releasing a second set of videos that are available for anyone to use. These are aimed at helping you convert current customizations including things like ACF codes and shortcodes, and build block templates to get your sites running Gutenberg well before WordPress 5.0 ships.
Register for free and watch them at: https://vipgutenberg.com
Here are the topics covered in the new videos:
Converting Custom Content to Gutenberg
- Shortcodes to Blocks
- ACF Fields to Blocks
- CMB2 to Blocks
Access Control & User Permissions
- Controlling access to blocks
- Controlling access to blocks based on user roles
- Creating Block Templates
- Applying User Roles to Block Templates
These videos are the culmination of weeks of research with our clients. VIP went to some of the biggest enterprise users of WordPress and asked “What are your questions about Gutenberg? What do you loath to explore about the new editor?” Their answers drove a curriculum exploring how to convert custom content to Gutenberg and access control with user permissions.
As we mentioned in our previous update, we’re also developing a plugin to help make it easy to test and implement Gutenberg at the Page and Post level. We’ll have updates on that soon.
In the meantime, if you’re a VIP client and you have questions about rolling Gutenberg out on your sites, get in touch with our Support team.
If you’re not currently on VIP and are feeling less than ready to embrace block-based life, drop us a note.
