    I have tried to use Gutenberg over the last 3 days along with plugins such as Getwid, Stackackle and Qubely. If you just want to build for the desktop experience then it's a nice experience. Quick and easy. BUT , I always build towards mobile-first (that is the way things are going) and this is where the experience turns sour and I go back to a page builder.

    Gutenberg does not provide a live-preview (which I think you mentioned) and selecting the mobile preview option presents a pretty useless output. So you end up having to fire up a separate window to show your live site after you've made guess-timates in the design browser. This slows me down far too much to be usable when I need to fire up new pages quickly.

    Unless I'm missing something, then it's a pass for me for now until they get better at the live-preview for all devices

    Interesting concept IF it helps with page speed. Does it? Also, I like full width pages, and at the beginning you seemed to set the page to full width but it was not full width when you showed the live site. Can you comment?

    Do I need the getwid theme in order to use the blocks?

    Interesting content but for the life of me I simply do not understand why on earth any tutorial author thinks that having a thumbnail video of THEMSELF on the screen throughout the video is a good idea. It contributes absolutely NOTHING and is at the very least distracting and consumes a portion of the screen!!

    Thank you so much for the calm and clear information. It helped me so much! Do you have a video on how to connect the pages using the same theme you have in this video? I think I understand how to build pages with blocks, but then what? Thanks!

    Truly fascinating, but for any beginner – would be nice if you talked & showed a bit slower! When know it as good as you, not have to watch the video.

    Bjorn, thanks for saving me again! I decided to do the Hotel Booking site over using the Oceanica Lite theme with Getwid after discovering this video. Can Getwid replace Elementor? Do you see any issues with that? Would I still require Jetpack etc, as recommended by Motopress?

    GetWid is a plugin, just like Elementor is a plugin. This just replaces one plugin with another, except that the list of things you can't do with GetWid/Gutenberg vs elementor is so long its not worth enumerating.

    Very good video. I prefer listening to you than the videos from MotoPress. I hope you do more. I am interested in the Custom Post Type block. I also wonder if the Demo content plugin could be used to publish Premade Sites.

    It might not take over all page builders but i think people who don't require use fancy landing pages can surely go for Guttenberg

    is there any way to make the accordion or tab block appear next to a paragraph block? I can not figure out how to put them next to each other. the button blocks can be placed next to paragraph text and it automatically moves over. how do I do that with the accordion or tab blocks?

    Thanks for the great video.
    May I ask you as a professional, is it possible to make site using both Elementor and Gutenberg? For example I would like to make a site with 2 columns and different blocks in every column, or at least blocks at the one of the columns and elementor type contents in the other column?

    May I Ask you, if it's Demo is that means it's not free if I make site following your video instructions? Do I must pay at some point? Thank you very much in advance for your answer.

    Thanks for this tutorial!
    I've finally got around to checking the Gutenberg+GetWid Base+GetWid plugin combo out… It's quite impressive!
    As far as the navigation of the site is concerned, can anyone advice any free plugins or alternative customization options for Header, Footer and element colour scheme (i.e. things like active links)??? I didn't find any of such features in getWid Base (apart from and actual CSS coding , I guess).
    I would really appreciate the info!

    I had no ideo that Gutenberg can be so powerfull. Thanks a lot Bjorn! You really opened the gate for a new approach with Gutenberg. I used some addons for Gutenberg but none of them are nearly as good as this plugin.

    I am too curious about Speed & I think using Gutenberg Editor will cause less CSS etc files and we will get a lot better speed than other plugins such as Elementor etc. Whats you note on this?

    Thanks, I was wondering about using Gutenberg as a page builder. Hoping it will load pages fast.

    Great video, looks nice. Quick question. Is there an easy way to see on each page how it will look on desktop, tablet and mobile. Most themes just have a button and you can be viewed as it shows on that type of product. I'm new to WP so apologies if this is a basic question
