We’re excited to announce that Page Builder Framework is now 100% compatible with Gutenberg – the new Block Editor for WordPress!
With the upcoming release of WordPress 5.0 quickly approaching, the new block editor running under the project name Gutenberg will find its way into core November 27, 2018.
If this is news to you, make sure to check out the Gutenberg live demo to test the waters & get yourself familiar with the new interface.
This is a major change to how we create & edit content on the back-end of our websites. Even though there’s the Classic Editor plugin, let me tell you this: Gutenberg is here to stay.
So, the next best thing to do is find a WordPress theme that works seamlessly with the new block-based editor. And that’s where Page Builder Framework comes in.
With Page Builder Framework, you can expect nothing but a smooth experience designing your site, publishing content, and promoting it to the masses once Gutenberg launches.
Here’s how it works.
We’ve applied some basic styling to the Gutenberg Editor and its default Blocks to match the theme’s look & feel.
Adding to that, style changes made in the WordPress Customizer will be reflected in Gutenberg for the ultimate WYSIWYG editing experience.
- Page Width
- Fonts (Color, Line-Heights, Font Sizes, and more)
- Background Color
Page Builder Framework was built specifically with Gutenberg compatibility in mind and will ensure that your content creation goes uninterrupted after the big release.
Wide & Full-Width Images
With the release of Gutenberg in WordPress 5.0, two new image styles are being introduced: wide-alignment and full-width.
WordPress themes aren’t required to support these new alignment options, which can significantly impact the content creation process.
Luckily, Page Builder Framework does support these image alignments for posts & pages with no sidebar.

Exciting times! Personally, I think Gutenberg will do good for WordPress in the long run. It was actually quite refreshing using the new editor while working on the integration, even though I think improvements to the UX can be made.
