Piklist and Gutenberg

With WordPress 5.0 and Gutenberg scheduled for release tomorrow, we wanted to let you know the status of Piklist.

We have been working hard on not only making Piklist 100% Gutenberg compatible but doing it the Piklist way: Easy to use, beautiful, powerful and stable. Unfortunately, this version of Piklist will not be ready tomorrow. Though we are disappointed, we have decided not to rush to meet this deadline.

You can continue using Piklist on Custom Post Types (with the classic editor), Terms, Users, Settings, Widgets and Front End Forms. Piklist fields will not work on default POSTS and PAGES.

If you want to use Piklist on Posts or Pages, it is recommended that you install the “Classic Editor” plugin which ensures custom fields display as intended.

The next version of Piklist will not only be 100% Gutenberg compatible, but faster and even more powerful then before.

    Thanks for the update, Steve. Frankly, the features that Piklist provides are a lot more important to me than Gutenberg, so I see no need to upgrade to WP 5.0 before you’re ready.

    All the best,

    Will the next version of Piklist allow us to create Custom Gutenberg Blocks?

    1. Steve says:

      Though our ultimate goal is to make block creation as easy as widgets and shortcodes, our immediate task is Gutenberg compatibility.

    We are looking forward to seeing this version. In testing, we have been using Gutenberg for some features and switching back to the Classic Editor for the Piklist functionality. It seems to work but will be better to just have full Gutenberg support.

    Hi Steven & team,

    Going to start a new project, I’ll install the Classic Editor because I really cannot think of using another plugin than Piklist anymore. What you did there is really an amazing & clean job! Thank you so much for it!

    At this point, can you ensure there will be no trouble updating to the next version of Piklist later while dropping the Classic Editor?

  6. Steve says:

    Hi Sara–

    So happy you love Piklist!

    The goal for the next major version of Piklist is allow you to use it with or without Gutenberg or the Classic Editor. So, yes you will have no trouble upgrading to the next version of Piklist while dropping the Classic Editor.

    On a side note, we love the amazing comment you left about Piklist. If you have a few moments we’d appreciate it if you could add it the WordPress.org page to help spread the word. Thanks!

    Waiting for Gutenberg compatibility for piklist. If able to create custom blocks using piklist that will be a great step ahead. As usually I always see piklist and a middle person layer between wordpress and the actual outcome.

    Hope soon will get some good news on it.
