Welcome to the East Bay WordPress Meetup’s Gutenberg Test site, created for our Contributor Day on August 27th, 2017. The purpose of this site is to make it easy for people to test the new Gutenberg editor without having to set up their own test environments.

We’re also testing some of SiteDistrict’s security features, so registration is open. You don’t have to be a meetup member to use this site to test Gutenberg.

WordPress 5.0 has arrived…and though this site seems to have converted pretty well from Gutenberg as a plugin to Gutenberg as part of core, I notice a few oddities–such as the apparent lack of a block in which I’m typing.

Developers are already creating custom block plugins. I had some installed in earlier versions of this site, but I’m selectively removing them because some haven’t been updated and there appear to be some conflicts, possibly between block names.

Stackable Post Grid

This post grid was created with the Stackable plugin. It’s a pretty nice-looking grid, which lets you choose a grid or list view, to show or not show featured images, featured image shape, “read more” links, and several other options.
