Hopefully you’ve heard that WordPress 5.0 is on it’s way with the new Gutenberg editor. It’s very different from the current “classic” editor. The new editor will be much more like the page builders that have become popular. With the release of WP 5 expected at the end of November 2018, you should make sure you’re ready to use The Gute now. Watch this short video to see what’s new. If you’re in a rush, start at minute 2:0 and stop at 14:0.
Of course, there may be some problems with compatibility of various themes and plugins. Make sure yours are all up to date. Most well supported themes and plugins will have little to no problems. Don’t like change? No worries. There are various plugins to disable Gutenberg all together or you can just choose the classic editor. Be sure to have backups of your site before WP 5.0 drops.
