How Woo360 works with Gutenberg (BB 2.1)

This article applies when both Woo360 2.1 and the Gutenberg plugin is installed and activated.

When you add a new WordPress page, you'll see a choice of opening the Woo360 editor or the standard editor, which means the Gutenberg editor.


If you add a page title, launch Woo360, add some content, and save the page, then the next time you mouse over that page on the Pages list you'll see the options shown in the following screenshot.


Here's a description of these options.

Edit link

When you add a new page or you click Edit for a page that was last edited in Woo360, you get a choice of whether to launch the Woo360 editor or use the standard editor, as shown in the following screenshot. The standard editor means the Gutenberg editor, 

Warning: You can start editing a new page in the standard editor and convert to Woo360 and vice versa, but beware of switching back and forth after that--you may lose data. 

If you open a Woo360 layout in the standard editor, you'll see a warning that doing so will disable the Woo360 layout. If you make further edits in the standard editor and then convert to Woo360, you will see your previous Woo360 layout. You won't see the new standard edits that you made. If you publish the Woo360 layout and open the page again in standard layout, you will lose the previous edits that you made in the standard editor.

This same loss can occur if you switch back and forth between the classic WordPress editor and Woo360, but there may be more temptation to switch back and forth with the Gutenberg editor.

Classic Editor link

Choosing Classic Editor returns you to the non-Gutenberg WordPress editing screen. At that point, you can choose to launch Woo360 or convert your Woo360 content to the classic WordPress editor. Note the warning that you are dissociating Woo360 at that point, and it will not convert any further edits you make in the classic editor.


Quick Edit, Trash, View, and Woo360 links

These choices for opening pages are unchanged from previous WordPress and Woo360 versions.
