Gutenberg is the new page builder for WordPress and its about to be released into WordPress core in the upcoming version 5 release.The question in the mind of many website owner is how is Gutenburg going to work with their current page builder?
Fear not though. Once you upgrade to version 5, your website frontend will look as it did pre Gutenberg.
What you need to do
We have looked at how Gutenberg will work with 4 different page builders but installing the classic editor plugin https://en-au.wordpress.org/plugins/classic-editor/ is all you need to do if you don’t want Gutenberg regardless of which page builder or theme you are using.
1. Divi Builder.
Gutenberg editor will take over all pages built with the Divi Builder. You will no longer be able to access your Divi page builder content.
Install and activate the classic editor plugin to get the Divi content builder back.
2. Visual Composer
Gutenberg editor will take over all pages built with visual composer.
You’ll notice all your visual composer content wrapped in VC shortcodes thrown into Gutenberg blocks in the pages and posts in editor. Your site will still work and look as per usual on the frontend providing you don’t deactivate the visual composer plugin.
Elementor will still allow you to edit the page as per usual. Installing the classic editor plugin will just remove traces of Gutenberg.
4. Beaver Builder
Gutenberg editor will take over all pages built with the Beaver Builder. Install and activate the classic editor plugin to get the Beaver Builder content back.
