How to Disable Gutenberg Styles on the Frontend

How to Disable Gutenberg Styles on the Frontend

By default the Gutenberg Block Editor loads its default CSS/stylesheet on the front-end of your WordPress site. This is fine for most cases, but there may be situations where you want to disable the Gutenberg styles for whatever reason. For example, my free WordPress plugin, Disable Gutenberg, enables users to disable the Gutenberg Block Editor and restore the Classic Editor. Included in the plugin settings is an option called “Enable Frontend” that lets users enable or disable the Gutenberg CSS/styles as desired.

It's just basic human decency.

WordPress Default CSS Styles

WordPress Default CSS Styles

WordPress gives us full control over the presentation of our websites. We specify which classes and attributes to use in our template files, and then apply CSS using our theme’s custom stylesheet. Behind the scenes, WordPress generates its own classes and IDs, and applies them to specific HTML elements in theme files and database content. Having these default hooks available makes it super-easy to custom-style your theme’s blockquotes, post images, widget items, and much more.
