On December 6th the latest WP Version 5.0 introduced a new editor for the backend, it’s called Gutenberg. This new editor needs adaptions in most WP themes and WP plugins. It also effects the WP OSM Plugin, these are the facts:
- If you update to WordPress 5 all your existing WP OSM maps on pages and posts still work.
- If you update to WordPress 5 you can not create shortcode in Gutenberg editor with WP OSM Plugin V4.x or lower
- If you update to WordPress 5 and install the classic editor plugin you can create shortcodes in the backend
WP OSM Plugin Team is working on version 5.0 to support classic editor and Gutenberg editor with one version. Release date is end of 2018.
Your feedback and comments are wellcome here.
