Oasis Workflow compatibility with WordPress 5.0 (Gutenberg Editor)

Posted at 8:50 pm on Dec 10, 2018

For the past few months we were diligently working on making Oasis Workflow compatible with the new WordPress editor (also known as Gutenberg).

We tried out a few options, but finally decided to go with the sidebar editor to support Oasis Workflow functions.

It’s been a fantastic journey from figuring out how Gutenberg works, how to define our React Components and finally how to package everything.

We are pleased with the final outcome and we hope you, as a user of Oasis Workflow plugin will feel the same. We have released v6.0 of Oasis Workflow Pro that is now compatible with Gutenberg editor and has all the cool features that makes Oasis Workflow as one of the best editorial workflow plugins in WordPress community.

What about the add-ons?
Except for Editorial Comments, Teams and Editorial Checklist, all other add-ons are already compatible with Gutenberg Editor. We are working on making the above add-ons compatible with Gutenberg as well. We plan to release updates to these add-ons in about 2 to 3 weeks.

Installing the Update
Oasis Workflow Pro v6.0 and the various add-ons can be installed from inside your WordPress admin by going to the Installed Plugins page under your Plugins menu.

As with all major updates, we strongly recommend that you use a staging or test server to test the updates on your site before installing it on a live site.
