“So you’re excited about using WordPress’s new Gutenberg editor.

Gutenberg is a great tool that offers flexibility and easy creative options. But what happens to all the posts and pages you have already created on your WordPress sites? Will your content look the same after you enable Gutenberg? And how easy is it to take advantage of all the new features?

I’ll answer those questions in this blog post.

First things first: on the front-end of the website, all your content looks exactly the same as it did before.
