I don’t see the new buttons or new tools in Advanced Gutenberg
  1. Make sure the plugin is activated 🙂
  2. All right, that could be because the new blocks are not activated to your account, please reach the menu Adv. Gutenberg > Profiles > Setup the blocks to activate
  3. Advanced Gutenberg is pretty well integrated with native Gutenberg, some blocks are new some other are original Gutenberg blocks but supercharged by new features
  4. You can define a custom color for the new blocks, it helps to find them
Can I get support for the editor use?

We reply to every question about the editor on the forum here, just ask 🙂 We also have an online documentation here:

Does Advanced Gutenberg slowing down my website?

The plugin has almost NO impact on page load, it’s only loaded during the edition process.

What is the Gutenberg version required to run Advanced Gutenberg plugin properly?

The latest one, always! We’re testing it with previous versions but the latest version of Gutenberg brings new features for developer and allow better content edition.

Is Advanced Gutenberg free?

Yes, totally free of charge.

Where can I see Advanced Gutenberg in my WordPress admin panel?

In different places: in Gutenberg itself by adding some options to existing blocks, by adding new blocks, as new menu named Adv. Gutenberg

Can I setup an edition profile per user?

Yes, this is possible, from the Gutenberg profile management, select some blocks, then you can give the profile to a single user or a user role

Can I translate Advanced Gutenberg plugin?

Yes, and that’s really easy! JU Translation is a translation tool included in all our WordPress plugins: get, share and manage your extensions translations from a visual and easy to use interface! You’ll find it in the Advanced Gutenberg settings menu

Does the Advanced Gutenberg custom styles works with the Gutenberg CSS block class?

Both are loaded from a separated stylesheet file and offer 2 ways to style your blocks. The Gutenberg default CSS class apply a CSS class on a single block then you can create your CSS on an external file.
The Advanced Gutenberg Custom CSS can be created from the plugin configuration and applied from a dropdown list to any block.


Nice when it works (Note: when it works)

I have been using this for a while, but it recently started to cause a white screen of death when editing posts/pages. Disabling the plugin fixes the issue, and the issue happens whether or not the plugin is the only plugin on the WP site.

They also break your blocks when they update, forcing you to manually re-create the blocks you have created using their plugin.

The reason I gave the plugin a one-star is because that they don’t let their users know when they break functionality in a new version. The plugin is nice when you forget that part. Just don’t expect consistency in whether or not your blocks will work or not. They may suddenly break them in a future version, without letting you know.

Breaks a lot

the only good about this plugin is the lightbox, for the rest I only see Config for this block is currently unsupported.. Besides that the lightbox is also not working 100%. All theme builders are dissapear in gutenberg because of this plugin.

Provides really required features

It’s quite strange that Core Gutenberg editor doesn’t have many of features that Advanced Gutenberg provides. With this polished blocks, new editor really shines. Thank Advanced Gutenberg Team for great work as well as great support during plugin-only available Gutenberg which causes problems with each update ;).

They solved my problem!

Initially I was having problems with this plugin: I really appreciated how they worked on it in a few hours to solve the problem!

Nice addition to my toolkit

The Advanced Gutenberg plugin is a nice addition to my Gutenberg toolkit. Not only are there some useful blocks, but there is the powerful feature of being able to create custom profiles for different contributors to a site. This feature takes a little getting used to, but once you discover its potential you will very much like it. The developers were very quick to respond to an issue I had which was quickly solved.

WordPress Edition Future

I’ve been using Gutenberg since the 2.x version, it has been a bit complicated during the very early versions, but once I decided to implement it, I’ve been happy about it since then. Adding a plugin like Advanced Gutenberg is a must have, especially the table block.
