I have enjoyed exploring the Gutenberg block editor. I used it to prepare a longish post for my users, but then decided it really belongs as a topic in a bbPress forum.
I have discovered that if you switch the block editor into code mode, copy the HTLM and paste it into a bbPress topic, it displays just fine! This includes block types such as lists and accordion reveals. Buttons also work as expected. This is a viable way of preparing content for bbPress.. It also works for topic replies. You just need to be able to post HTML.
Of course, editing is a pain. Best is to enter edit mode for the topic/reply and copy it into a block editor window opened in code mode, then switch to visual, do the edits and copy it back again. I image it would be relatively easy to reprogram the edit button to open a block edit window and automate this process. This would unify the post/page and bbPress editing experience.
Do you know if bbPress is on the case?
