Today I updated (locally) one of my sites from version
5.0.3 using WP CLI (
$ wp core update --version=5.0.3). The update ran successfully but I have noticed two things.
Gutenberg did not automatically get added into core. I had to install it manually from Plugin installation page
Before update the system was using WordPress's default classic editor. Now with
Gutenbergactivated, I want to make it the default. When I went to
Settings > WritingI don't see the Default Editor selection option.
My problem is regarding #2 above. How can I make Gutenberg the default editor?
The application I am working on was not developed by me. I have been asked to convert a few
shortcodes into Gutenberg block. For this I need the
Gutenberg editor as the default one.
