Reasons To Move To Blocks Page Builder

After almost a year, I decided it was time for an upgrade and to move this website away from ThriveThemes Architect.

First, Gutenberg has been around for enough time. Gutenberg not only replaces the default editor, but it also makes complex layouts accessible into WordPress. 

Secondly, instead of shortcodes, placing or embedding content in WordPress is now done through the use of specific options or by the use of pre-made blocks. And there are so many third party block extensions to the block editor, that I now have the flexibility to style every part of my website design (pretty simple design, I concede).

Third, my change to blocks was precipitated by not being able to show hamburger menus when using ThriveThemes Architect full-width background element in conjunction with WPAstra. This happened in several projects and I was left with the uncomfortable sensation of being pushed from one support to the other. Being left without a solid answer was the reason to read the GeneratePress forum and to appreciate the GP support.

Besides, I share Tom Usborne (the creator of GeneratePress theme) vision that “Gutenberg is precisely what WordPress was missing”. You now see that my move from ThriveThemes to blocks editor was also a move form WPAstra to Generate Press.

And this is what happens when you use GP+Hawkhost $3/mo shared host plan, with LiteSpeed configured:


P.S: Incompatibilities between WPAstra and Thrive Architect have mysteriously disappeared.

P.P.S: I renewed my WPAstra premium license a month ago.

P.P.P.S: Another month, issue was back on one website… Moved another website to GP…
