Gutenberg posts aren’t HTML…

Fluffy and Flakey

…and my eraser won’t work with my ink pen!

Lately I’ve been hearing plenty of conversations about the way that Gutenberg posts are saved inside of post_content. If this is all mumbo-jumbo to you, Gutenberg is the project building an entirely new editing experience for WordPress, the software which powers this blog as well as 28% of the internet. Gutenberg is an experimental, risky, and visionary rethinking of how people should be able to create content and structure a website. It’s a break from traditional editors as well as over a decade of tooling and plugins to support that.

Gutenberg also stores necessary information in HTML comments.
