Don't know what WordPress was thinking with this, there are already way more advanced platforms and plugins doing 1000x more what Gutenberg can do. Thank you for this plugin removes all the block scripts which slows down websites. I hope that you keep it going Jeff, your work is and has been invaluable to the WordPress community.

Excellent plugin

Disables Gutenberg perfectly

Does not work correctly.

The disable Gutemberg per post type does not work, so it's useless for me.

Thanks the pope for this plugin

Nuff said

I personally don't find the block editor useful, beneficial or intuitive for clients. I use this plugin to get back to basics again and again... every site I build.

You saved me the trouble.

You saved me from the Gutenberg nagging. The Site Name in the header was showing broken. I solved my problem by removing "global-styles-inline-css".

Great Plugin!
