Classic Editor VS Gutenberg
For years and years, WordPress users have seen the classic editor. Most plugins and themes in the WordPress directory as well as many premium themes from the themeforest used classic editor as their main platform.
When the news of Gutenberg hit the WordPress community, they absolutely lost their freaking minds. But why?! This is because Gutenberg didn’t support most popular themes and page builders such as Thrive Architect, Elementor, Divi and so on.

But now, Gutenberg has an HTML block, making it super quick to
