The Make Do Blog
Since WordPress 5.0 our developers have found themselves spending a lot of time enabling new Gutenberg features for older WordPress projects. In this post our WordPress Engineer Charlie describes WordPress development best practice on how you can quickly get your older WordPress websites ready for Gutenberg.
At Make Do we needed a tool that would let us build our project assets dynamically on the server (Sass, JS, etc) and continuously deploy to our production and staging environments without any headaches for our engineers.
One year ago the Make Do team hosted the FrontEndNorth conference at the City Hall in Sheffield and welcomed over 200 people from all over the world into our hands to view sessions from experts in our industry talk about everything front-end!
WordPress 5.0 and the new block-based Gutenberg editor is finally being released today! (…that’s the 6th of December 2018). But how did we get here? How did we get to the release of this all-new revolutionary change to WordPress? Let’s take a quick look.
“Make Do joined us at the very beginning of our re-brand and worked with us from day one to ensure that our website reflected the identity of the charity. We couldn't be happier with the look and style of our website.
“The process of developing our new website was clear, constructive, positive and actually enjoyable. The Make Do team were able to translate what we wanted from a website into the building of it - we weren't bombarded with jargon and terminology.
“The Make Do team are hotshots. They did things with WordPress we didn't think were possible. I would highly recommend their services.
