WordPress 5.0: Gutenberg vs. Classic Editor

The Gutenberg editor is based on drag and drop blocks and makes it really easy to create a page or post exactly the way you’d like it to look. It may even help you eliminate plugins on your site since it has a image gallery, contact form and table layout built into the interface.

On the other hand, the Classic Editor is a plugin that can be installed to change the editor back to the old style editor.

This might be a great solution for very simple sites or website owners who don’t want to experience the learning curve right now.
