Disable Unused Gutenberg Blocks In WordPress

Have you upgraded your site to WordPress 5.0? If so, you should disable unused Gutenberg blocks to speed up your website and enhance the user experience.

The Gutenberg editor is one of the newest developments in WordPress, which has been making its debut in recent versions. While it promises to revolutionize the way you build websites, the reality is that this new editor has its own (truly deserved) share of critics.

Although it’s not as bad as some detractors are saying, there are some serious bugs that need to be addressed. With this plugin, you can make your life a lot easier by disabling the new blocks from being seen on your site.
