A Process for Customizing Gutenberg for Clients / What To Look For In a Web Host

Over half of WordPress sites focus the UX on the front end. But what if a site has multiple users with multiple use cases? Using built-in features of WordPress such as user roles, custom post types, & capabilities we are able to create specific user experiences for everyone in each team. Combined with the new Gutenberg editor we are able to get more granular than ever.

We can restrict contributors from publishing their own stories. For advertisers, we restrict certain blocks. We can even identify keywords in a story that flag it for a review by legal. Does a user always switch to full-screen mode with the top toolbar? We attach those preferences to their user identity across publications using an external authentication system.

We even have made a revision history display plain text instead of Gutenberg markup for writers but still display Gutenberg markup for devs debugging any issues.
PRESENTED BY: Victor Ramirez

Choosing which company to host your WordPress site is one of the most important decisions you will make for your website. In part, it will play a large role in the success or failure of your project.

Bud Kraus has spent countless hours with tech support on the phone, via chat, and by email for over 10 years. Not to mention the time he's spent learning how easy – or difficult – it is to navigate in a host’s user interface and how its service performs.

This presentation will review the must-haves in a web host no matter which plans your go with.


Victor Ramirez began his foray into the interwebs building websites and email newsletters for various high school art projects. Recently, he was at Dow Jones defining WordPress at News Corp. He now is a lead product analytics engineer at The Knot Worldwide. On the side, he runs An Abstract Agency (a WordPress agency), co-organizes the WPNYC MeetUp, & teaches high school students to code.

For over 12 years Bud Kraus has been teaching WordPress and developing sites for small businesses and organizations.
